Hi my htc touch diamond restarts randomly few times a day. can anyone help


try updating your software to 1.93 rom, i was having the same issues when i was on 1.37 and my partner was on 1.35 updated and not had the issue since!

update site - http://www.htc.com/www/supportdownload.aspx?p_id=133&cat=2&dl_id=2

also if that doesnt work try doing a soft and/or hard reset -

Performing a soft reset

Perform a soft (normal) reset to clear all active program memory and shut down all active programs. This is useful when your device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work is lost.

To perform a soft reset

htc_touch_diamond_2_hard_reset_soft_reset.jpg

1. Pull out the stylus, then remove the back cover.
2. Use the stylus tip to press the RESET button (red) located at the opening of the stylus bay. Your device restarts and displays the Home screen.

Performing a hard reset

If a normal reset does not solve a system problem, you can perform a hard (full) reset. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings-the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. You will lose any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your device, and only Windows Mobile® software and other pre-installed programs will remain.

Warning! Your device will be set back to factory default settings. Make sure that any additional installed programs and/or user data have been backed up before you perform a hard reset.
Important If Encrypt files when placed on a storage card is enabled, backup all files from the storage card before using Clear Storage, hard reset, or updating the operating system. Otherwise you will no longer be able to access the encrypted files on the storage card. Use ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center to transfer files between your storage card and computer. After the procedure, copy your files back to the storage card.

To perform a Diamond 2 hard reset
1. With the device turned off, press and hold the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons, then briefly press the POWER button.
2. Continue pressing the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons until you see this message on the screen:

htc_touch_diamond_2_hard_reset_soft_reset_1.jpg

3. Release the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons.
4. Press the VOLUME UP button to perform the hard reset, or press any other button to cancel the reset.

Hot to install os


Before flashing your HTC remember that flash lose all data, programs, settings mms, e-mail, SMS etc.… save by only files in external MiniSD card. Also before leaving with the operation controlled the level of battery that must pass at least a 50% interest in the office or you can not flashing.
The procedure is not as difficult but cmq before starting care must be taken to certain things:
1. Do not ever interrupt the connection between our Touch and the PC you are using for Update because it could also very rare if not allocate more your Touch.
2. Remove SIM MICROSD from handheld before starting the operation of flashing
3. The handheld is better if is charged with more than 60% of battery
4. Better that the PC you are using has no power cuts (much better then if you use a laptop)
5. Ah else for me obvious but very important, make a backup of data in the handheld when the first of flashing, I will give you advice PIMBackup
Top of the proceedings update:
touchaggiornamentorom.jpg
1. Download the archive Enable-rapi.zip (link for download at the end of post), unpack and transfer Touch in memory of the two files Cert_SPCS.cab and EnableRapi.cab, and then install them in with whom I have written them and run a soft-reset (reboot of Touch)
2. Download the archive ELF_USPL-v1.zip (link for download at the end of post), and unpack it in a folder that nominerei with the same name. Turn the Touch (if you have not already done so), connect to the PC via ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center (for users who use Windows Vista) and run from the folder in which you have checked out the ELF_USPL-v1. Zip file Elf - uspl.exe. Follow the directions on the screen (this is the screen that must be present) touchaggiornamentorom
3. The installation consists of 3 shares and each of them must press ENTER when prompted to continue.
Be careful at the end of step that the two screen handheld is white ActiveSync or WMDC is grey. If so, then continue to step 3, otherwise interrupt the procedure (CTRL + C), soft-reset to Touch and proceedings CID unlock. If everything is gone as planned you have unlocked the CID. If in step 2 / 3 there appears the bootloader with 3 colors instead of a white screen, then the installation failed, and then press Ctrl + C and repeat the procedure without detach the device USB.
4. At this point you can flashing for all intents and purposes the ROM of your touch with what’s for you. You have to unpack the folder ROM that you have chosen to flashing on the device, once scompattao everything in the folder you created a file called ROMUpdateUtility.exe, here do leave and follow signs elementary on the screen after loading the bar have flash your ROM .
5. The handheld will restart with the new ROM and at this point I recommend a nice hard-reset so that the new ROM start all processes of loading. If during the installation of the new ROM should appear a mistake video with a specific number of council not detach USB the Touch and repeat the operation.
Finally, I would remind you that with this procedure and any other leading to a release of CID you are losing the guarantee of the device since the bootloader is not official.

Need to transfer files from the Hx4705 main memory to the installed SD card using only the HX4705


Go to 'Start > Programs > File Explorer'. Chose the directory containing the file you want to copy by tapping the application's top bar. Tap and hold the file to be copied, until a context menu pops up. Select 'Copy'. Now, choose the Storage Card from the top bar. Once there, tap on 'Menu > Edit > Paste'. Your file should be copied.
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

Motorola q problems


Hello Dee, I am Ken. I know this can be very frustrating. My recommendation is to go to Start, Settings, then "Remove Programs". Remove any programs on there and then try re-intalling the ones you wish to keep. Your Q is a computer, so it is like fixing program problems on a windows PC. If that does not work, please let me know what program you are trying to install and I will try it on My Moto Q. Please let me know if this helps.
Good Luck,

IPAQ HX4700 won't sync with desk top


Hello, Please try the following steps. They could help with your problem. First open this link to hp's download page for your PDA. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?&lang=en&cc=us&pnameOID=420535&taskId=135&prodTypeId=215348&prodSeriesId=420534&lang=en&cc=us Then select your pda's operating system (windows mobile 2003se or windows mobile 5). then from the following page select the ROM update and download it. Try to master reset the pda (you may find informations about this in the user manual). After you reset the device, don't tap anything on the screen (don't follow the welcome wizard or anything it asks you to do). Just connect the usb cable to the computer. Activesync may try to connect to the pda, may fail or things like this. It doesn't matter what does it do as long as it does something. Now open the ROM file you downloaded and press "next" untill the process begins. If the setup asks you to reset the device or things similar, don't do it. Just continue with the setup and "tell" the program you already done that. Make sure your battery is charged before doing this. Also make sure the pda and the computer are left alone these 10 minutes (that's how long it takes to do the ROM update). If the ROM update fail, please post a comment and give me the error message and code. We will take it from there. Also please inform me what version of windows are you using and eventually an email adress for me to send various service programs required for the next stage (if the rom update fails to work). Good luck, Bogdan

Retreive the setting after ROM Update


It is not recomandable that you do that. After a ROM update the registry configuration is changed, the hexazecimal SEEM components (interface between a flash ROM and the firmware) have different offset values. Altrought there may be ways to restore programs and settings, there will be bugs that will occur. They can vary from simple program errors to wide system crash. I don't recomand such interventions. I've tested some of those programs for PDA's, windows enabled phones, or things such that, but with no real and trouble free results. Many claim that they can do this, in some way the restore process will actually work, but in future .. there will be problems. Please post back for further informations, or if you really want to restore a part of your old backup configuration.

Additional Programs on Ipaq 4705


Unfortunately these programs cannot be removed as they are flashed in ROM. These programs are also reloaded whenever you happen to perform a hard reset.
