Flashing with Vista64 vs Windows XP ?uestion...

So, I'm finally moving on from XP to Vista64. Are there any differences in the process? Anything I have to do prior to flashing or any special instructions with the process? Chime in, please! =) TIA!

No. It works exactly the same.

Well I guess the only difference is you need to install the 64bit version of Windows Mobile Device Center.

Re: Flashing with Vista64 vs Windows XP ?uestion...

ive never had a problem flashing the TP, however, my fiance had an LG incite before her iphone, and i had continuous communication problems between the pc and phone (using lg's flashing solution) resulting in a non functioning device. this was with vista x64 only. No problems whatsoever flashing either the TP or Incite on windows 7 x64.

if i recall, xp uses activesync software, while vista and windows 7 use windows mobile device center. just google "windows mobile device center" and youll find it on microsofts website. Its basically just activesync's replacement.

I have to disagree. Im not a fan of vista home, however, home premium and ultimate are both excellent operating systems, and, providing you have the hardware to support it, is faster and more stable than xp. The UI is a bit different, as is the file browser and control panel layout, but, once you get used to it you will most likely like it better as its more convenient, and youll be primed and ready for windows 7, because windows 7 pulls alot of tricks out of vistas bag.

Re: Flashing with Vista64 vs Windows XP ?uestion...

Yeah I've been a WinXP guy foreverrrrr. I'm finally taking making the change because I think it's about time to move on. I'm getting a new box, just got 2 WLED computer monitors, a new huuuuge flat screen LCD and surround sound, new desk etc. So, everything's gonna be connected to everything else. I'm familiar with Vista but not for flashing/cooking.

the procedure for flashing/cooking is the same as before, because your still using the same software, just on a different platform. like i mentioned above, only difference that would be relevant is the use of WMDC instead of activesync.
