Well i must be the odd one out here - i bought my I-MATE JASJAM in Beirut Lebanon

Back home in Geneva, I stupidly overwrote the arabic language ROM with a Telstra (australia) upgrade found from a search engine

this Australian Telstra upgrade caused me no ends of problems living in Switzerland

then i discovered in www.Clubimate.com that there is an 'official' upgrade available

so i tried to install that over the Telstra

I kept getting the message that the I-Mate was not detected and to plug the USB cable in - which of course it was and the Red Green Blue screen showed Version IPL -1.01 on the red band and USB was showing on the white band at the bottom of the screen

I did this on a Vista machine AND an XP machine

So grateful to have found this site, i followed all the steps above and there is ABSOLUTELY NO difference - ''plug usb cable in etc etc''

sheesh

has any one any ideas and can this be done easier on an XP machine following the same process ?

I can't get the driver update to get going.. ;)

When I try to select the .inf file it says (loosely translated from danish) "The selected folder does not contain a compatible softwaredriver for the unit. If the folder contains a driver, check that it has been developed to work with Windows for 32-bit systems" :(

Edit: Nevermind! I forgot to start in bootloader mode :D

Edit II: Got so far as to update the first time.. But the second time it says something about wrong vendor..

i do believe this works for a 32-bit system but not the 64bit.. is there a usb driver for 64bit.. i found one on xda.. heres the link: http://forum.xda-dev...ista 64bit mtty but the drive gives an error code 39 stating it cant install it


If you are running Windows Vista 64-bit, then driver signing verification is on. In order to turn it off, and, thus, load this driver, you have to reboot the machine and turn driver signing verification off.

When the OS starts to load, hit the F8 key. That will bring up the boot options screen. The "Disable Driver Signing Verification" choice is towards the bottom of the list.

Hope this helps!

just wanted to report that if you are running SP1 on your system...updating these drivers will cause RUU to crash when you try to do an upgrade.

ok I found out how to start in bootloader... power, camera, reset. But I can't find mobile devices in device manager. Not listed when I'm connected as I should be and not listed when I disable USB connections.

I did this about 10 times already and I still get the same thing: RUU stopped working!!!! This is total BS!!!! :D should I run this in compatibility mode for XP? I'll try it that way, but this has became a worthless way of getting something simple done.....

I followed the guide but had some issues. I ended up writing up another guide that combines the findings i had until i got it to work.
Maybe it will help others!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My Hardware:
HTC Tornado (Vodafone V1240)
Vista Ultimate 32bit
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Credit goes to Kar Hoe and Modaco's Paul O'Brien.
http://karhoe.net/content/view/21/1/
http://www.modaco.co...ultimate-guide/

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STEPS:

1. Unlock phone and put it into SuperCID mode

- connection phone to PC via USB cable
- download http://karhoe.net/my...kiwiz02_173.zip
- unpack and execute 'Lokiwiz.bat'
- type u [+enter] to unlock it. wait patiently for restart!
- type c [+enter] to put into SuperCID mode.
NOTE: if this was done improperly phone will get stuck on Bootloader mode, even after being flashed


2. Put phone into Bootloader mode

- turn off phone
- connect USB
- for HTC Tornados push the camera button for a few seconds, then tap poweron, and
continue to hold camera button until white screen appears = red, green, blue screen
- for other phones, google your phone model + 'bootloader mode button'. Shouldnt be too hard to find.


3. Update Windows Smartphone driver from default to patched

- Download and unpack VistaRUU.zip
http://www.modaco.co...h...st&id=21151
- establish connection to PC via USB cable
- hit START button and type 'mobile device center'[+enter]
- find&click Connection Settings
- make sure 'Allow USB connection' is unchecked
- hit START button and type 'device manager' [+enter]
- under entry 'Mobile Devices' right-click the device (most likely 'Smartphone USB ...')
NOTE: if there are no 'Mobile Devices', put the checkmark back on 'Allow USB connection'
- select Update driver, then 'Browse my computer for ...', then 'Let me pick from a ...',
then 'Have Disk...' and 'Browse...' to where VistaRUU.zip was unpacked
- choose file 'wceusbsh.inf' and uncheck 'Show compatible hardware'
- Select Manufacturer 'HTC' and Model 'HTC USB Sync' and wait for driver to install



4. Prepare for Flashing New ROM

- Doublecheck that 'Allow USB connection' is unchecked in Mobile Device Center
- Make sure to close Mobile Device Center: hit CTRL+Shft+ESC, select tab 'Processes' and
end process 'wmdc.exe' if it is running
- Make sure phone is still in bootloader mode (tri-color screen) and connected via USB
- Download & unpack latest ROM
http://rapidshare.co...num_Edition.rar
(optional to check if newer version exists http://karhoe.net/content/view/21/1/ )
- Finally, go to folder with new ROM and execute 'ROMUpdateUtility.exe'
- [checkbox] next, [checkbox] next, then follow instructions
- Wait for 100% and phone to reboot.
- Worked? Pat yourself on the shoulder once, twice if it worked right away. You re officially
a geek. Dont tell anyone. Woot.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WHAT IF...???

-..Error 260:
disconnect USB, take battery out of phone then power back up, reconnect
USB. Possibly doublecheck / repeat driver update in 3, doublecheck 4.
-..ROM is updated, phone wont start properly or is stuck in Bootloader mode:
Steps 1. and (more likely) 2. werent done properly. You have to put WM5 back on the phone and
repeat steps 1. and (more likely) 2.! But dont despair - it wont take long.
Go to your phone's support website and download ur phone's official WM5 ROM. For V1240:
http://s131209249.on...254832_ship.exe
It should contain a file called 'nk.nbf' (~30-40MB file). copy+replace the one thats in the new
WM6 ROM. disconnect USB, take battery out of phone then power back up, reconnect
USB. Execute 'ROMUpdateUtility.exe' again, and this time it should revert your phone back
to WM5. Repeat steps 1. and 2., exchange 'nk.nbf' back to the WM6 and try again.
-..something else went whack:
sorry, the above were the only 2 errors i encountered, but check the guides i used for help:

There are versions of RUU which work without any of this.
I've upgraded my Athena with no problem and the first time I upgraded my StrTrk it worked, using a different ROM it didn't work but changing the RUU it worked fine. I just have a default instal ov Vista (not yet SP1)

im stuck on step 15 install your update? how do i do it? and where do i get it from?

Make sure you installed HardSPL as follows: power off and then press power on while keeping camera pressed, this will enter the so called bootloader mode and you see a tri-color screen (Red, Green, Blue). You should see "SPL-1.0 OliPof" on the second line in the top left corner. You can exit this mode by means of a "soft reset": press the reset button with the stylus.


how do i get hardspl install? is in bootloader mode now but is showing spl-1.93.0000 not spl-1.0 like it says above

helppppppppppp what i do

my

[teaser]Just after the launch of Windows Vista, we reported that RUUs (ROM upgrades), do not work on the OS.

Now, courtesy of sp3dev @ XDA-Developers, a solution has been found... and i've taken his basic instructions and posted them below with full screenshots and the very latest driver files extracted from ActiveSync 4.5.

News page readers can find the 16-step (not as bad as it sounds!) walkthrough after the jump! :D

Before starting: Your device needs to be connected to the PC, and in BOOTLOADER mode.

GREAT!!!!!!YOU ARE MAGICIAN!!!

Unfortunately the 16 steps outlined above did not work for me.
What did work was this command that you put in the command prompt:


net localgroup Administrators /add Local Service


That worked for me.

I thought I had killed my phone for good. I even sent my wife to check the Verizon store for the 6800 model; that's how bad oit was. I did the initial ugrade but it lost connectivity and it shut down and the phone was stuck in boot loader mode. I was freaking out until I found this post. But it worked! Windows Mobile Device Center didn't even need to be connected! The only difference I found was when browsing for the driver like you told me to do. When I did this, the name of the driver did not come back as HTC USB Sync. It showed the Microsoft USB Sync instead (even after clicking directly on the file name in the folder you provided us). This was a bit fishy to me because I didn't want to end up in the same boat I was in before. So this is where I played with it a bit.

I decided to uncheck the "Show Compatible Hardware" box which brings up a list of drivers by manufacturer name. I scrolled to "HTC" and selected the "HTC USB Sync" like you showed in the directions. Of course, I received a warning that the driver was not compatible with my computer, however, it worked perfectly for the upgrade. Since my phone was already stuck in boot loader mode, I restarted the upgrade, and now I can use my phone again. Thank you very very very much! My wife ended up buying a new phone though when she went to Verizon, so it still looks like I ended up spending some eunnecessary money anyways. Oh well. My phone works, and I'm happy. Thanks again.
