the problem is when i put the 3 uk rom on. the phone does not complete the boot process


Dude I remember that very well, what I'm saying is just download 3 UK ROM and just extract the Skype.apk and the .odex file from /system/app/ in the .zip file.

Note :- No need to flash it.

Dude I tried Skype Lite on both MCR 3.1 and Stock 2.73.405.66 Rooted, It works fine on both. I think it is a problem with 3.2b5 ROM, have you tried connecting to Skype by both the mobile network and the WiFi connection.

Ya! Even I checked the 3 UK ROM, but it didn't had any Skype setup pre loaded, You sure that 3 UK ROM has Skype pre loaded ? Anyways I'll let you know if I get any updates about Skype.

Is this normal: When trynig to update to a new radio and pressing the "reeboot system now", the screen shows an image (arrow out of box) then the phone reeboots. And then the text: Formatting CACHE:...
But now nothing happends, left it overnight but still the same, tried another radio, but still same prob.

Just select 'Reboot Now' and it would work, The text 'Formatting CACHE' means that Radio has been flashed now you can reboot the phone.

1. copy the radio zip file to your sdcard and rename as update.zip
2. reboot your phone using the home+power button sequence or the adb method (your choice)
3. the phone will list an option to install the update.zip file, select it.

The phone will ask you to reboot.

When the phone finishes rebooting it will go back to the recovery ROM while displaying "Formatting Cache" just choose Reboot device again.


The above worked for me. The phone was pre-rooted for me by the person I bought it from. My first attempt at any kind of Android flashing and it could not have been easier. Took I think 15 minutes of reading to make sure I had it and 5 minutes to actually do it. I now get 3 bars of H3G signal instead of 1.

Everytime I try to download the Radio, I get sent to the MODACO home page. The only reason I signed up was to get that radio to update before flashing the Hero.04/Sense ROM...

Is there a problem with the site? Are the radio's still available???

Do I even need to upgrade the Radio before flashing this new ROM?

The radios are there. If there's a problem with the site it seems to only affect a small number of users. Maybe try asking Paul if he's had any other reports?

No, you don't need to upgrade the radio, but it's a good idea to go with the latest & hopefully most reliable, especially if you currently have any reception issues.

[Edit:] Can you get any downloads from modaco, linked to from other pages?

I got no problem downloading the newest Radio, however, when I copy it to my sdcard, it says: "Please insert the last disk of the Multi-Volume set and click OK to continue."

I have not tried all version, just the 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26 and 63.18.55.06JU_6.35.08.29 , but same thing for both. Anyone got any suggestion how to resolve the problem ? Thx :)

Disable Adblock / enable Javascript...

It might, but I have no idea, what so ever, how to use this infomation :)
EDIT: I figured out I had to open Cmd, but from that I couldn't get any of those commands to work ;)

You'll be needing these tools to do that (Android SDK Tools) :-

http://developer.and.../sdk/index.html


Just download the tools according to your OS and you just need the tools folder in the .zip, just paste it in your C:\ and change the directory of the cmd to the above folder and you'll be go to go.

OR

Else just try doing the flashing method once again, That's a bit on the easy side.
