Question about T-Mobile MDA
I recentrly tried to update my MDA with the PDA phone ROM update program i downloaded from T-mobile web site. welll everything was going fine until the phone shut off right at the end of the update, which then gave me 3 coloerd lines on my screeen. red, green, and blue. i though *** was the battery so i left my phone charging for a few hours, the tried to go back and reinstall the updat...same things happens, now im frusteated here with a practically dead MDA!! somebody help!! now my phone keeps shutting on and off over and over !! =(
This is a sw boot up screen. this is what the screen will look like with no sw on the device, so you guessed it....the download was unsuccessful and corrupted the firmware.....if you tried to reinstall the sw again, and it does not work, you might need a new phone....contact t-mobile to do that.....OR, you can try to do a master reset by pressing the sw keys.
to do that, turn off the phone, and press and hold the soft keys (buttons located beneath the touch screen that have the lines on them on top of the green call button and the red end call button).....while holding these down, press the power button for 3 seconds and release the power button.....all this time you are holding those soft keys down....the phone SHOULD turn on and go to a black screen with white writing.....at this time you can relase the two buttons......press the green button and reset. if this does not work.....my friend, you need another one......good luck!
