    As Taran noted - he did not read the question properly, and he suggested that I request another expert.

    Please read carefully the whole dialog - and help.

    The solutions I got from FixYa are terrible - and they seem to completely ignore what I requested and paid for.

    I requested an upgrade from WM5 to WM6 for ASUS A636 (NOT A636N) and that WITHOUT Hacking.

    I checked the web, including the XDA developers hacking site and their forums and solutions. I approached FixYa because none had what I wanted.

    Your first expert gave an upgrade for HTC YTyTn,and then admitted that he did not read correctly the question.

    The second expert just copied from the web.

    1. He gave a hacking tool address - which just enters you into XDA-Developers site, but WITHOUT giving the name of the hacking tool, and WITHOUT providing the location of the WM6 to be downloaded (It has to be one with drivers for the ASUS A636 hardware such as GPS and WiFi, so not every WM6 upgrade can be used).

    2. He gave three web sites. The first is for ASUS A636N and NOT for A636. The second is indeed for A636 and gives seemingly a WM6 on the ASUS website - except that when you go to the ASUS site you find there is no such software and that is a FALSE reference. The third is for upgrading WM5 from Dutch or German to English, and not to WM6 - and further it is based on hacking. The fourth is for A639 - and not for A636. The last one is for the A639 Dutch version.

    In other words - your two experts just looked at titles on a Google search, did not have any solutions to my questions, and did cost me considerable time in following up their advise.

    Please help - I need an upgrade without hacking from WM5 to WM6 for ASUS A636 (and not any A636N or another A6xx).

    If you have the answer - I would be most grateful. If you do not have an answer - then please acknowledge this.

    Thanks,
    Yair Babad

    Thank you for this solution. But this only enable replacing WM5 for ASUS A636 with ASUS A636N. This solution (the patching of the upgrading tool) does not work for the tool for WM6. Further, the solution you had wwas suggested on ASUS A636 forum, and the second step suggested there of upgrading to ASUS A636N WM6 was never proven to work.

    So that solution does not work. Any other solution that DOES WORK? Too much time was spent on the three solutions that failed...

    Please advise.

  • ybabad May 17, 2010

    The solution directed my attention to SDHC drivers - an issue which solved my immediate concern.
    I am most grateful.

Friend, If you go to the site below, you will get all the info on your PDA. However on the last page (No 3) you will get a mention of updating the SW directly to the memory card that you have. Please follow the link and update the PDA. Language would be English, I think as I have not gone that far.

Below is a simple way to do it "Blind" however i recommend you read up about it all, as if you do it wrong, you may end up with a "Bricked" unit. So be careful.
Do the following:

1. Download WM^ update of your choice
2. Download http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=50590&d=1189780829
3. Patch update.img with this tool
4. follow ASUS update procedure with patched update..img

    Thanks. I will look at all these links.

    Question: There are many WM6 updates - some generic and some related to a specific unit (i.e., they have specific drivers). Indeed, the A636 has a GPS, wiFi, etc. - and I am not sure whether it has specific drivers or not.

    Can you suggest where I can find a WM6 update that I should use, that is, what is the link to one and which one (if there are several at this link) I should take?

    Thanks,

    Yair

    Taran:

    This is no good.

    1. The solution is for HTC TyTN Hermes - I HAVE ASUS A636.
    2. There was no link to WM6.

    The internet is filled up with patches to A626, A636N - and some complex hackers patches to A636.

    I need a simple download that will work for A636 without hacking.

    Please advise.

    Thanks for your response!!

    I apologize, i should have mentioned that it is a Generic Procedure. I never Read the Questions Properly, i thought it to be A636N.I am not positive that, there is any way other than reflashing.The best i could do is to Opt Out.

    You could reject this solution and Click on the Option for - Another Expert and i am sure, there would be someone who could answer this Correctly.

    I am Sorry, i should have checked it before answering.

    Thanks!!

Hebrew language kit problems


I have done typesetting and websites in Hebrew. It wasn't a lot of fun for me considering I don't speak the language. Word particularly has trouble with it. The best solution I found was putting the English text in a text box. You can hide the borders on the text box and change it to right alignment so that it looks like its just part of the doc and goes from left to right as it should. You can adjust how the Hebrew text wraps around the text boxes also.

I had a much easier time with Hebrew in Quark, haven't tried it in InDesign. And please don't ask me how the design department managed to steal a programmer to work on a 50+ language ad campaign. :D

Sound Problem on ASUS A636N


The problem is related to TomTom software. There are two methods to solve this problem.
(1) You can choose to install TomTom 6.1 which has solved the sound problem if TomTom V6.1 is available for end user.
(2) Find “BtCoreIf.dll”in Windows directory and rename it to "BtCoreIf.old”. Then, reset the device to solve the sound problem.

Support for Asus A636


There is a problem with the battery cover switch. You should use a contact cleaning liquid spray or, if you are good in hardware, you can open up the PDA and solder a small capacitor in parallel with the switch. I did that yesterday, then I started iGO 2006 Plus and pressed several buttons. Everything was great, but I wasn't satisfied yet. I switched the hold button and started to hit the PDA dropped it on the table etc. When I had switched the button to unhold, surprise... the software was running. Problem solved! I have called a friend of mine and already modified his unit too.
Cheers and good luck!
