HTC Wizard crashes with SPB Pocket Plus installed

When I installed SPB Pocket Plus, and reset, I found that it hanged and just would not boot. I had to hard reset. So after hard resetting, I installed it first and had a look through the settings. There is an option for "Safe Mode" that disables all today plugins and startup programs in the event you install one that causes you device not to boot.

Interestingly enough, it was the "Safe Mode" that was causing the device not to boot :).

I took the tick out of that box and viola!! It worked fine! To do it, go into settings, System tab, then SPB Pocket Plus:

Are you using the latest build? I have no such problem on my Vario:

"Release History

Version 3.0.4 (Oct 14, 2005)

Issue with safe mode on HTC Wizard devices (QTek 9100, I-Mate K-Jam, etc ) fixed "

I tried spb over a week ago and found that it caused my phone to run terribly slow so i uninstalled it. I'll have to reinstall it and try that trick to see if it works properly. Thanks :)

I have to say that I'm not experiencing any issues with it either? I did on my m500 as did a few people when you had to sft reset all the time to get your connection back.

But no issues so far on my Vario

funny i find my actually runs a lot faster - although i do experience terrible slowness on soft reset - just do a few tasks and it speeds up again (caused by memory i'm guessing).

Have you checked you've got the newest version? It is supposed to be WM5.0 compatible and I'm running it without problems on my Vario.

i do have wm 5.0, but i dont know what version my spb was, but right now it dosent matter what version i have since my 8125 is completly not working. i need to find out how to do a hard reset, because the one thats on the manual dosent seem to be working.

Hi All,

can I get some feedback on SPB Pocket Plus - is this now fine with WM5? I know the recent version is meant to be better however are there still any problems?

I'm thinking about potentially buying however don't want to cause problems - my unit has worked so well up to now!

I'm currently using the recently updated v3.1 of SPB PocketPlus which runs great on my k-jam. Ever since the 3.04 update that was released around Oct 05 i havent had a single problem with the app. v3.04 was the 1st version that "officially" supported WM5 with SPB's safe mode however some users still reported the safe mode compatibility issues with this version.

I think i did see one or two people having problems with v3.1 (either here or XDA Devs) but most people report its working fine.

Cheers,

Chris

Has anyone found out how to hard reset or restore an MDA with this problem? My MDA hangs up on the Windows Mobile screen. How can I hard reset without being able to enter Windows? Please help!

Nevermind, I found out how to do it! Hopefully this helps others...

"Hold the device facing you, depress simultaneously the voice command and WiFi (connectivity) button. One is on the right side of the device and the other is on the left side of the device. With your other hand and the stylus, press the reset and release immediately.

Remove the stylus and continue holding the two buttons until onscreen instructions appear. You will need to then press the SEND key [green phone button] (as the instructions indicate) to do a hard reset. "

I had he same problems and after the screen saver kicks only a hard reset broght the system back. I sent theit tech support an e-mail and they pointed me to a fix in version 3.1.1 build 5369. You might want to get that update if you don't alreay have it.
