Vista users: how do you flash custom Titan ROMs?

Hey guys, I'm currently on Vista (32-bit) and have found that short of dual-booting it's a real pain in the ass to get my PC setup to flash custom ROMs on the Titan. Back when I was a GSM customer and owned a Hermes, I used mrvanx's excellent Vista guide for Hermes, but I keep having problems getting that to work properly for my Titan -- seems inconsistent at best.

Are you guys dual-booting XP, just finding an XP machine to use while you flash, or virtualizing XP? Maybe it's something quirky with my setup (shouldn't be, as I have a July 2007 Core 2 Duo ThinkPad), but I'm finding that I get really slow XP performance under the free VMware Server.

What's the best/most efficient way to flash custom Titan ROMs?

I'm running Vista x64 and I'm able to flash any rom after following the instructions for the Olipro bootloader. Check the Sticky on the Titan page or follow this link: Hard-SPL - Flashing ROMs - Titan Unlocker - Click Here!

you might have gotten a windows update that overwrote the drivers. Try copying them in with the procedures again.

i am running Both versions of Vista 6000 and SP1 (6001).

Its common for people to have USB issues when connecting their device which has led some to propose the "Dual Boot" to use active sync.

Other than an occasional sync issue there should be no issues flashing custom roms to an unlocked Titan.

HANDHELD - in the USB connectivity settings you need to uncheck "Enable Advanced Network functionality". This will change windows from seeing it as an "NDIS device" to a standard serial device (similiar to how bootloader mode is recognized).

Keep in mind its not easy but a VM is a far smoother idea than DualBooting. I had to map the com ports to my local USB in order to get it to work but after hours of tweaking it has worked in the past and i have connected via activesync in an xp virtualmachine.

FYI - as Imcokeman mentioned there was a Vista update for WMDC in November which needs to be applied. Its a functionality update and absolutely helps improve the USB connectivity issues.
