TYTN II Upgrade to 6.1 - Restore of PIM causes hang

Morning

Got a TYTN II that I flashed to 6.1 HTC ROM form their official site.

Install took 8 mins, no problems reported and all clean.

First thing I done, was used the tool called "PPCPimBackup" to restore the PIM details. Actually, I was only interested in the SMS messages as I had 2,500 in the inbox and just under 2,300 sent items.

Anyhow, done the restore, took approx 20 mins and completed. When to do a soft reset, and that is what I noticed the device becoming unstable.... locking up... unusable.

So I done a hard reset, still at 6.1 and carried on installing some apps (remote desktop, batti, Air Guitar), and then attempted another restore again. Sadly, same problem.... locks up!

Hard Reset again, installed ALL apps I need, and not done a restore of the PIM yet.

I am going to do a backup using SPRITE Backup, that originally came with the TYTN II WM6.0. I can only assume this version of sprite backup will work? anyone confirm?

Importantly, anyone know why a backup of the PIM that was on 6.0 is causing some headaches going back to 6.1?

little gutted, because there are some important SMS messages in this backup.

Any help is truly appreciated.

Thanks, Simon

Backups from one OS to another have always caused problems.

I use Jeyo Outlook Extender to back my SMS up to my PC. Probably doesn't help you but I would not be surprised if your restore to 6.1 doesn't work. 6.1 uses threaded SMS (which is great) so there might be some conversion which doesn't happen on a restore? - just a thought, I could be way off the mark.

Hi

the threaded part did seem to work, and do the job, but I guess there is an underlying factor overlooked.

I take it, there is no way to go back to 6.0 now?

You can reflash a 6.0 rom and then restore the sms's, then sync them with pc and then go back to 6.1.

Personally I would worry that 4800 sms messages on my devices would make it too slow.

Have to concur with Jim there - why do you want to keep so many on your phone? I like to keep mine but archive them off to the PC (not that I do many now).

Guys,

I have never had a performance issue with the SMS messages. In fact, the only reason I realised I had so many was due to the installation of the FLEXLM software, which was causing severe delays.

Yet, if I use the built in pocket outlook / sms tool, it was flawless - 100% trouble free, with absolutely no delays.

I did post this question on the forum (cannot remember the thread), and questions were asked about so many, but hey... it worked for me. And never, ever caused a problem.

Apart from the use of FLEXLM, which I decided to uninstall and revert back to the basic tool.

Jim, try it :D It does work (TYTN II WM6 HTC SIM FREE device).

So, unless I revert back, not much else I can really do.

why do I want to keep so many on the phone...... business reasons, and believe me, it was extremely useful in many, many ways.

The SMS threading has already grown to over 100 for just one person, and that is in the space of 35 hours. Not that I send that many text messages you understand.

I guess I can live without it, but shame the tool let me know :D
