Error 246 - Tilt 2 (Rhodium)

Hello,

I am trying to unlock my HTC Tilt2 (Rhodium), using the Rhodium Hard-SPL(GSM) unlocker. I continue to receive the error message indicating a communication problem (Error 246). Can someone please make a few suggestions. This phone is GSM and my carrier is AT&T. I am using Windows 7 (64Bit) as my operating system, and have disabled Symantec Endpoint Protection (RU5); I've also made an exception for the executable of the unlockr tool.
As per instructions that I've read, I did the following:
1. Removed Simm card.
2. Removed SD card.
3. Disabled Symantec (RU5)
4. Launched the MS Mobile Device Center, and verified connectivity.
5. Ran the "Rhodium-HardSPL_V1_20R2.exe" . I continue to get error 246 indication a communication error using both the "Automatic" and "Manual" flash.


Note: ONCE on my phone I received a message indicating that RUU was trying to run on my machine. I confirmed, but nothing happened after that. The message never appeared again on my phone.


Can anyone enlighten me?

QQ: Do I have to have .NET 3.5 installed on my OS?

Thank you for your time,
Reggie

Dude,

BOY do I feel kinda silly right about now. It seems that I was using "Rhodium-HardSPL_V1_20R2". When I should have downloaded "Rhodium-HardSPL_V2_00R3". Let me give it another shot.

Many thanks for the quick response.

QQ: Any ROM that you have a preference to?

I guess thats why I'm called a "newbie". (Stupid grin)

Thanks,
Reggie

lol Well, we were all noobs once! I suggest just flashing a few and see what you like. There are a few gsm roms in the gsm upgrades forum here and a few over on xda. Hit the thanks if I helped.

Unhappy Re: Error 246 - Tilt 2 (Rhodium)

Same think. Immediate "fatal error" on "Automatic", and "Error 246" on "Manual"
Wish I had better news.

AM I supposed to take out the SIMM card? I saw on a tutorial that I should as well as the SD chip.

Re: Error 246 - Tilt 2 (Rhodium)

Are you putting the phone into Bootloader mode first? Nevermind, I guess that's not required. But it must Sync and not be in airplane mode. You must also have an internet connection, of course.

Re: Error 246 - Tilt 2 (Rhodium)

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=550131 page refers to bootloader mode after the error message that i am receiving. Never get to that point (item 11).

Re: Error 246 - Tilt 2 (Rhodium)

I see you tried Auto and Manual mode.
Did you do the part, where you put the file on the device? It's mentioned on that same page.

Did you upgrade Windows Mobile Device Center to 6.1 first? Gotta make sure you follow all the steps.
