Initialization failure after rom update

When I installed the rom update everything went fine until the very end, at which time I was informed the device failed to initialize. It then went to a dark screen with the hp logo in the middle, "USB" on top of the screen, and "v.0.21" at the bottom. After taking out the battery the unit restarts with the setup process but after doing the tapping of the screen thing and the appearance of the normal menu, a "customization" process starts that soon brings me back to a dead screen. Neither Windows Mobile Device Center (my laptop runs vista) nor windows explorer show any connection to the HP device, although I do get a notice from my computer that a usb device has malfunctioned and is not recognized. How do I reinstall the old ROM (or the new one correctly) and get this thing running again?

Hi. I had this problem with my iPaq and there is a soloution. Unfortunatley. it is impossible to repair whilt you are running vista. HP insists that you run Windows XP or Erlier, with Active Sync installed. We can however give this repair a try. I would need to know first of all what country you are in, and which version of the 6515 you have. i.e a, b, c etc....

email me techservices@rytech-uk.co.uk with the details and i'll email you back with the soloution.

I HAVE AN HTC P3600 AND IS IN PORTUGESE HOW CAN I CHANGE THE LANGUAGE INTO ENGLISH OR GREEK;


you will need to unlock the CID(country Identification) first to allow you to flash an english (or greek if there is one) rom

unlock using the trinity cid and sim unlocker found here
http://pof.eslack.org/trinity-unlocker/

Easy auto-install Instructions:
  1. Unzip unlocker and run AUTO_Unlock_v1.bat

If you don't want to install automatically, or for some reason the process doesn't work for you, here are the manual instructions:
  1. Transfer SSPL/SSPL-TRIN.exe to your phone and run it
  2. Tri-color screen will appear
  3. Disable activesync (file -> connection settings -> uncheck "allow USB connections")
  4. Connect your phone to your computer using the USB lead.
  5. Run RUU/ROMUpgradeUtility.exe
  6. Follow the flashing process (Check the "I understand..." and "I completed..." boxes and update!)
  7. Allow your phone to reboot.
  8. Transfer TRIN_Unlock_v1.exe program to your phone and run it
  9. Click the Unlock Button, select unlock option. Select if you want SIM/CID unlock.
  10. Click "Unlock!" and wait until process finishes.
  11. When done, turn off your phone for 10 seconds and reboot after that.
after successfully unlocking the cid you will be able to flash any rom to your phone, english, chinese, greek etc

after unlocking the cid/sim i recommend downloading hardspl and installing this as well. This allows a good recovery rate if anything went wrong during flashing.

hard spl can be found here

I have an Axim x30 and I am in the process of flashing the bios. Everything went well until it started to copy the new bios to the device. The message came up "lost usb data stream". Now there is no usb...


Hi,

May i direct you to this site : http://www.pocketpccentral.net/help/dellx3reset.htm

It shows how to soft reset and hard reset your Axim. I believe that after a hard reset your axim shall sync and you should try updating the rom again.

I take it you were using a rom update from Dell?

Best Wishes

UNCOMPLETED MDA UPDATE


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!

Tungsten E - HotSync with Outlook 2003


Don't skip the initial HotSync for secondary computer! Alright, I figured this one out on my own and figured I'd post what I'd learned so that others don't have to endure the teeth mashing, hair pulling, snarling frustration. (self induced as it may be) My experiences have taught me to not always trust a cookie cutter installation wizard...especially for custom app installations (ie: primary = home, secondary=work, total sync, no priority). So, I did not perform the initial sync during installation of the palm software fearing that the new installation would NOT recognize that the work computer was a secondary machine and resultantly wipe out the old palm data from the primary machine. Turns out, as I saw in many other unrelated posts, that it's difficult (if not impossible) to specify conduit direction to outlook 2003 outside of the initial sync (this prompted me to specifically look for conduit direction during install). So, this wizard is one I should have trusted...by mistake...because of weak program design. By the way...once I specified sync with outlook during the initial sync, EVERYTHING works fine despite not having installed the two "imperative" conduit updates (they were uninstalled after several previous failed attempts at this). Hope this helps

E350 ROM-image update?


I have looked at different sites and found some informations. The only way for you is an EUU (End User Update) but Toshiba doesn't offer an EUU for the e350 until now, perhaps Toshiba installed a OS with all available EUUs yet and is waiting for an EUU from MS.
