Rom update problem

I have been trying to do the rom update for my treo pro. the carrier is sprint. I follow the directions, the tri-color screen comes up, then when i try to continue the sync disconnects, everytime. has anyone had this problem? Not sure if i'm doing something wrong or not. I'm trying the BIGE-ROM-23518-1.0. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Re: Rom update problem

have you unlocked the phone yet? It will disconnect from active sync while updating the rom, you will hear active sync disconnect and it might hang for a min but then start the rom updating

Re: Rom update problem

the rom upgrade utility doesn't say anything about unlocking the phone, i just followed the directions to run the RUU. That must be the problem, is there another utility that i need to unlock the phone?

Re: Rom update problem

Thanks for the info, is there a particular unlocker that works best with the treo pro? I just tried one and it didn't work. I'll search the files and see if i can find something

Re: Rom update problem

please correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't the hardspl unlock the phone? when i run it, it goes to the colored screen, then i try to run the ruu,, the screen changes to grey with the progress bar, then the sync disconnects. about 5 min later i get update error 262. If there is something else that unlocks the phone what is it? Thanks...

Re: Rom update problem

yes hardspl does unlock the phone but there is a trick to get it to go through. when you run it you get screens that say ok or continue its been along time since ive used it so i cant remember which it says. after you click continue the first screen and get to the next continue/ok screen disconnect the usb and then reconnect it then click continue and you should be on your way. for some reason the phone likes to lose the active sync connection right around that area.

Re: Rom update problem
