It's not. It's Verizon's official update, but still 6.1. To get to 6.5, you'll need to flash a custom ROM PDA image (see post #2 on how to do that) If you look in the i910 ROM section, right below this sticky you'll see a whole bunch of different custom 6.5 ROMs to try out, including my own! :)

Read the guide and, as stated, if you have issues with the verizon updater, use method #2 on the first post..

Before you start, read this:
First thing, check to see if you already have the CF03 ROM, since most of the newer i910s being shipped out (replacements, at this point) already have it! Start-Settings-System-Version. Look at ROM Version, if it says "S:i910.10 V.CF03" then you're all set to use a custom ROM (see post#2). Otherwise, read on...

If you already have the CF03 rom, your GPS is fully unlocked already! Just go to settings - Personal - Phone - Services - GPS - Location ON and soft reset.


Let me tell you, it's harder to break your omnia via flashing that you think :P (At one point I wanted to brick mine, and tried for 3 hours pulling the plug, using a bad image, etc, and it just wouldn't die!!!) Anyway, at the end of the post is my yahoo/AIM screen names, if you want, I can help you through it. I'm always on.. unless I'm not. :D (I think I'm the only one that openly gives out their own s/n's like that ;) )

Hello,

Some help from the experts would be appreciated.
I have been running various roms on my omnia with success for a while. Recently my phone displayed a warning indicating the storage space was critically low. I proceeded with deleting those files I thought were innocuous, IE5 cache, temp directory, etc. After the native winmo applications acted weird, email message loading would freeze but opera for instance would work fine. I know, dumb mistake.
I proceeded to do a hard reset, reflashed verizon Cf03 but always got the same results: flash completes successfully, I reboot the phone, animation start and...nothing, just a white screen. Several soft resets did not help.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Very odd. This happens even when you flash the CF03 ROM? It sounds like the flash is just failing. You may need to try another USB port or a whole other computer.

I have both tried flashing CF03 with the verizon tool and other roms with the umdl tool. In each case the flash completes successfully, the phone reboots, I see whatever animation comes with the ROM and then nothing. The animation goes on until the device screen goes into power saving, or the equivalent, and when I press any key I get a white screen and that's it. Very strange indeed

Have you tried hitting the soft reset button (next to the pwr button) and see if it works after a soft reset?

Sadly I must report that I have tried that too, several time. The result is always the same, loading animation and then white screen :D

I had tried this in both XP and Vista - same results. Anyone with any ideas on the "PDA-Checksum" error?



Did anyone ever come up with solution for the checksum error. I get it as well. I stopped and closed the 23504 MD2 package when it gave the error. Removed the USB (even thoug the phone had th msg do not unplug) and removed the batt. Gave it a reset and avoided a brick.

Would love to find what causes the checksum error before I give it another go.

its worth it... and if you do an spb backup, you wont lose hardly anything.



I downloaded the cab for the voice dialer, which I lost in the upgrade to 6.5. How do you install the cabs? I'm using Samsung's umdl. Thanks.

Not sure why my Omnia crashed, but it lost phone capability. Off to Google I went. Long story short, after using up the whole morning searching for a solution, this link has lead to success. My phone just finished programming. Thanks so much.
