winmospeed and lockdevice are both cabs. You just copy them to your phone, browse to the location using File Explorer, press on them, and follow the prompts. I've attached the cabs for your convenience.

File Type: cab LockDevice_V1.6[1].CAB (45.3 KB, 18 views) Click for barcode!

I've got it all figured out. Thanks.
It is Cabs.

Is installing rar, zip, and exe different? If so let me know how to do that.

rar and zip won't install. It will just extract whatever files are packed. A simple cab is basically the same thing, except that it puts the files in a specific location and may contain registry data. There are .exe's which can run on your phone. They will install things like cabs and may or may not have any user interactions (some exe's just run on the phone and do not install anything). cab's are by far the most common.

Re: How to install software on Sprint HTC Touch Pro 2?

Ok I see, by the way if I get a SOD do I hard reset or soft reset?

Do SODs somewhat make the phone slower and slower over time if you keep getting them and thus requiring a hard reset to get it back to normal speed?

soft reset. they will happen a lot since ur on the stock 6.5 ROM. as of today it's still unclear as to what the exact cause of it is as the 21889 build its based off of is one of the only builds it happens in for almost no reason.

Re: How to install software on Sprint HTC Touch Pro 2?

I see, for me it wasn't an SOD but was a crash after tweaking battery settings. Soft reset fixed it. But you know like it's bad to press press the power button on a pc (a hard shut down/ restart) Is it bad to press the reset button on the phone in the same way or is the phone different?

I mean if it happens occasionally, does the phone slow down to the point where I will need a hard reset to make it run normally again? Or is hard reset almost never needed? List me times that a hard reset will be needed other then before adding a custom rom or doing a cleaning of the phone using a software like with goodthings2life.

Soft resetting your phone actually does not harm it. Its actually advisable to soft reset your phone a couple times a week...kinda like a minor house cleaning. Soft reset and hard reset are 2 different things. Hard resetting your phone will clear out your phone and puts it back to factory settings. Doing a hard reset wipes your phone of everything you installed on it after you took it out of the box.
