WMDC Okay to upgrade ROM?

Hey guys
I'm just checking if its safe to upgrade a 6700 to a custom ROM using WMDC instead of activesync. Its my friends phone, so I don't feel like bricking anything.
Thanks
Joe

I too have used it and it finally worked on Vista. I think it had more to do with the new kitchen though and the permissions needed in Vista to run as administrator. I do have problems syncing after the fact though.

Re: WMDC Okay to upgrade ROM?

It is possible as shown from the threads on this post but I would still say that most people would recommend the XP and ActiveSync 4.5 for reliability's sake in flashing a ROM. I doubt if you could brick the phone because most issues involve the updater (RUU) so the ROM should never reach the phone. You may get stuck in bootloader mode, though. See those threads.

If yiou don't have access to an XP machine, I guess you have no choice....

..... I actually have had better luck with Vista for Flashing and Syncing. Most problems with Vista seem to be user error and all fixes are on this site.....
