Bad HTC Hotfix for music skipping!!!! Help!!

I downloaded the hotfix from HTC to make it so the music won't skip anymore, phone did a soft reset automatically and when it came back on it won't go past the start screen where it says touch pro and has the little red numbers at the bottom!! WTF!! tried soft and hard reset and still can't go past this point, should I start shopping for a new phone or does someone have any ideas...? Anyone??

Flash yourself a custom rom from the upgrades section. Most chefs have already fixed that issue...

Re: Bad HTC Hotfix for music skipping!!!! Help!!

I had this happen. A hard reset fixed it though. Not sure why a hard reset isn't working for you unless you didn't officially hard reset it.

Hard resetting the phone was hard for me. I had to remove the battery... Pop it back in and really quick hit the volume down, enter on d pad and power button. Had to try it a couple of times to get it to work.

Once it did it though I had to go through the whole set up process again, and then restore from a backup.

You can put the phone in bootloader manually by turning the phone off, then power up while holding down the DOWN volume button. It should give you a tri-color screen. You can then plug it into your pc and flash a custom ROM or back to a factory ROM.

a hard reset would have deleted all you have installed on the phone. you actually got to a screen that was gray and said to "push the vol up to restore to factory settings" screen?

Re: Bad HTC Hotfix for music skipping!!!! Help!!

Ok, to hard reset manually it is a pain. So this is your best shot. While on the screen that shows touch pro, Press all these buttons at the same time. Press and hold the power button down, press and hold the volume down button, press and hold the enter button, ( that is the button in the center of the dpad) and then jam and hold the stylus into the soft reset hole. Hold all there until you get the hard reset screen. It works, I just tried it. Remember when you do it keep holding all buttons down, it takes a good ten seconds for the screen to come back on. If you need additional assistance feel free to im or pm me.


Also back in the days of my HTC universal I found this to fix audio skipping on a2dp. Give it a shot.

Go into the registry and add this dword string into the following location. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\BtA2dpSnd

Make a new Dword value and name is Priority256 and then for the DWORD Data value make that 60 save and reboot. Presto no more lag, cuts or audio drop outs. I have attached the modified registry key for ease. To manually mod it the registry location is at the following.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\BtA2dpSnd

Cheers,

Mikee
