I followed the directions on http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=292068 but when I run pdocread.exe all I get is a cmd line flash up and it asked to install on my device. Did it but got no idea of the uniqueid so I can't go further. HELP!!!

No but the other end is a standard USB, so you can use that to charge with a USB MAins plug (such as an Ipod charger).

Never thought of that - my excuse is that my iPod came with an american charger so I never used it - I'm not really thick....

Please - not too many replies to the contrary.....

I would guess that you haven't changed the reg keys that you need to for it to successfully app unlock.

You need to do this bit

Then the rest is in the readme for the WM6 rom (the clean version is the one I used)

(run SSA_Applicationunlock, then copy across the spl/jumspl files to the device and then run spl and then run the ruu updater)

You have to run it from a cmd prompt then it returns your unique ID (provided, of course, that you are running the old version and not the new one that won't run without arguments....)

Oh yeah - that bit too ^^^^^^^^^



(Although I didnt need to run pdocread on either the qtek or the smartflip - after running SDApplicationunlock, I was able to install spl and then flash the rom)

Tried all that. Gave up :D

I have an old version of TT5 for SP. Can't get it to run (installs ok) but when run for first time it goes into setup and selects labguage but he says 'incompatible with your device'. Anyone having any luck???

Interesting - SDApplicationunlock didn't work on my qtek (maybe it's because it's pink) so I had to do the full works - and had to ask many questions before I got it right....

no idea about TT - dump it and get CP7 :D

It didnt work on mine till I had changed the three security policies' values. I have now bought three of these and set the others up for clients who wanted a cheap sim free smartphone with exchange syncing.

Now I am off to use my expansys discount voucher on spare microsd cards as i think i will be swapping between the devices quite a lot.

Ah! I changed/added all the reg values manually so I think that's why I didn't need it.
Expansys discount voucher? I didn't actually read what came with the phone - did you get a voucher with it? Was it worth it? I just bought a 2Gb card dor under £12 from Moby -.

I got a voucher for £10 off if more than £20 is spent. I've just spied some 4gb micro sd cards for £15 so I might get a couple of those :D :(

Except the 8500 can only use upto 2Gb (at the moment) or so I believe....

Does the £10 discount Paul has negotiated for MoDaCo members have a minimum spend?

In response to the points in your post:

Arse and £25 respectively :D

There's 2gb microsd cards there from £6.95 though
