[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

P[/teaser]

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

Step 1 of 16: Extract this zip file to a memorable location on your machine (e.g. the desktop). This is the Activesync 4.5 RTM USB driver.


Am i missing something...?
When my Kaiser is in Bootloader, i don't see it in WMDC...

Or is this as it should be - and i just carry on anyway?
Cheers

Never mind... Found out where i was going wrong... Need to enter Bootloader :D . Where i was - wasn't BootLoader... hmmm
So for the others who couldn't find bootloader....

>>To Enter Bootloader..: 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).

Hi Guys,
1st Post here at Modaco, usually on XDA-Dev's! But I cant get help for this there...
I followed the instructions in this thread, so I could run the RuuUnlock on my old Hermes, (getting it ready for Ebay).

When I got to the bottom, it said to revert back (to my TYTN II/kaiser) I should re-click "Allow uSB connections" in WMDC.

Problem is, now I just cant get WMDC to recognize my Kaiser anymore, comes up as "Unidentified USB Device". doesnt show in file manager.

Tried re-installing WMDC 6 & 6.1, no joy....
Looked everywhere for a copy of the hTC Drivers that I got on a Vista update but can't find htem anywhere, and get uninstall old ones (dont show up in remove updates list)

Stuck as Fu-dge...

Can you Guru's help me? Anyone up to the challenge?? :D

Many thanks
Stoo1701

Just run the upgrade - don't worry about the fact it that wmdc does not recognise the phone, it doesn't need to when it's got to that stage.

I was having the problem where even though I started with my device in Bootloader, it was not appearing under Mobile Devices in Device Manager. I did finally get it to appear by doing the following:

1. Unplug device from USB
2. Take out battery
3. Plug device back in to USB and wait for it to be recognized.

It then appeared under Mobile Devices in Device Manager. I then put the battery back in (and successfully completed the rest of the directions).

Guys, i've just updated my MDA Compact II (Charmer) and didn't neet to follow any of the instruction above. If you have the ROM files stored on your hard drive you should have 'EnterBootloader.exe' which you should copy to your storage card. Run this file from your PDA in File Explorer, this will put the machine into Bootloader mode (Red, Green & Blue screen with version numbers). Now just run the RomUpdateUtility.exe (or similar) from vista & bingo, job done. No device disconnecting, no device changing, clean & simple B)

I've done the process about 6 times now, with 4 different RUU's.
I'm running Vista 32bit (HP laptop), with an O2 mini s, fully CID and unlocked the xda-developers way (thanks for that guys!).
My Mini S states:
IPL: 2.26
SPL: 2.26

I'm just trying to get WM6 on my xda!

Has anyone found a way to do it yet?

Thanks!

This also works for Windows 7

I never had a problem with Vista and didn't read the instructions here - the ones I found were half missing so I had to guess most of it...

Hello there,

I got a problem from step 5. I just don't understand how you can see HTC phone in Device Manager after you uncheck a box "Allow All USB Connection"? It means that there is no connection between any devices and PC.

Plz help to get me through this step.

Thanks,

Don't worry about it. Just continue, it's now in the right connection state. Although ActiveSync / WMDC can't see it RUU can.

However, I'm installed Virtual Machine (Parallels or VMWare Machine) on Vista and setup WinXP on this VM and setup MS Async 4.5 and Uprom good work.


Note : Don't install Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, it not support USB port.
Good Luck !

Yep! You're absolutely right. Even under windows7 x64 build 7201 it works. I've installed VMware6.5.2 and windowsXPsp3 under it. Now i've upgraded mu loox n560 to WM6.1.
