I have tried "hepics" 's method to update my i600 to wm6. (please see the methods as below)
For the first attempt, around the end of the process, it took a quite long time without any response.
I then followed hepics's advice to unplug the battery for another reset... it does not help anymore.
Then, I tried one more "flash" but the update hung up at the end also.
I have no choice but try to re-flash it with the GD1 and GA2 roms. However, during the updating "Phone" part, the phone screen shows the following messages.
[Phone] Active OFF -> Active OFF
[Phone] Reset Pin -> Low : OFF
*[PHONE] Phone Download Failed!
My phone does not have the phone function right now. What can I do??
The phone can still get into the bootloader. Any remedy??
QUOTE(hepics @ Aug 3 2007, 21:27) The three extracted files and the flashing software (from previous i600XXGC6) is currently uploading to rapid share. Should take 30 more minutes to complete . Some points. I am disappointed in WM6 Update for many reasons. Including
- No Pocket Office (I guess because after WM6 there is not enough space left in ROM)
- No WM6 VoIP (One of the MAIN reasons for me to install WM6, I am still trying to see if its hidden somewhere inside)
both the above features are official part of Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Standard but have been removed from i600 version.
WARNING: Do this at your own risk. I had some trouble with the first update attempt. The update said its successful but the PHONE Component (GSM) of i600 was not working. I could not fix the problem on the same machine, but managed to fix it using another computer so I guess it was some driver issue on my machine.
Start the I600_WCEDownloader_v1.1_Single.exe Application
Select the three files
Eboot = WM6Eboot2.nb0
PDA = WM6PDA.bin
Phone = WM6Phone.bin
Boot the phone in flash mode. Refer to http://wiki.modaco.c...Into_Bootloader for entering boot mode.
To enter flash mode / boot mode you must first turn off the device. Then press three keys "power" + "right soft key" + "camera key / back key"
Click at the Start Button to start the flash.
NOTE: The device takes a really long time to boot for ONLY the first time after update so be patient.
