    Here's a shot of my 2.2.3 Veer TTS'ing with my Touchpad -- you can see the circular wave just spreading out from the Veer:





    Thanks to Herrie and everyone else who worked on this!

    Hi all,

    First of all thanks a lot to all those who have been working on this, I was reading this thread since the very beggining. I love my Veer, but it was really missing Skype. So as soon as there was a way of updating it, I did it.

    I have an AT&T veer, but I live in France, so it I had it unlocked, and I was using Windows7 to update it.

    I ran everything according to the instructions and seemed to work fine except the final part, where the files for the touchscreen, modem, A6 update are copied into the phone. I had to do it manually. I saw that some other users had the same issue, but it is nothing too bad

    I updated the touchscreen and stopped there, as I don't want to risk to brick my phone with no reason (I won't use TTS so why bother), so I could enter my pin. Then it asked me to log into my palm profile, but was not possible because wifi was not available and even when it asked me to enter the APN settings for the 3G connection, it couldn't connect to the 3G network.

    So I put the device in Devmode and could finaly use my phone, activate it with Impostah and so on. Now, it works fine, Skype seems to work even though I couldn't call anybody yet (it is 4am, I'll have to wait tomorrow morning to test it) but I could see my friends online.

    The only thing is that 3G is not working. So I figured that I might need to do the modem update. So I copied again the files in /tmp and executed the modem update script. Didn't work... I also got a "not enough space" error. As I'm in no hurry, I will wait to see if there are any updates on this. Tomorrow I'll do some more tests

    I'm on Linux system and using Makefile for updating my unlocked att veer. I'm stuck at the touchscreen driver updater since I can't connect to my veer in recovery mode after updating to 2.2.3. The new system works OK, but can't register my touch because of this issue. Any suggestions?

    same for me, although if i want to use the novacom by hand i stucks at
    Code:
    novacom run file://bin/cp -- /usr/lib/modem/broadwayumts.tar.gz /tmp
    if i look into the veers memory, the broadwayumts.tag.gz isn't copied to tmp.
    Manualy it's possible to copy and then to unzip.

    will try on a windows machine

    OK, I've fixed this issue. Just run PmTpUpdater after executing 'stop hidd' in mornal boot. But I had to run PmTpUpdater twice to get it updated successfully. Right now touchscreen rocks! Thank you, Herrie!

    PS to other Linux users: prepare-updates in Herrie's Makefile will get stuck in terminal 'cause we lost the veer after fresh recover.

    5 minutes erlier i've discoverd the same ;D

    but the modem update hangs with the error that there is no more space left on the phone... so i'll wait until harrie will work on the 2.2.4 next week...

    happy try'ing

    Yes, looks like /tmp is running out of space during the decompression of the firmware. You can see this by typing "df -h":

    Code:

    Let's try using /var/tmp:

    Code:
    mv /tmp/broadwayumts.tar /var/tmp/
    cd /usr/bin
    PmModemUpdater < /var/tmp/broadwayumts.tar -f
    Which gives us:

    Code:

    After all that work updating the modem firmware: I now get 3G (or 4G, whatever you want to call HSPA+!) on my 2.2.3 Veer. I don't know if this will fix zac206's problems, above, but it sure did for me!
  12. #532  
    uhhhhh nice, that works for my device ;D

    many thanks so i'll give the palm a another chance to survive...

    I've updated the modem with this tweak successfully, but I still can't dial or connect to our carrier's data service. The signal icon seems OK, lacking of 2E/3G icons. Is this necessary to unlock my veer again? Anyway thanks for your trying.

    EDIT: It seems media applications haven't worked yet, such as photos and music and the new system is a bit laggy.

    My guess is that the carrier unlock would be unaffected -- have you tried re-entering any custom APNs your data network might need? (Phone -> prefs, scroll down.... )

    I couldn't dial any number yet. After pressing the dialing button, nothing happens. This problem should not be related with data network, isn't it? I'm using 3G network from a China carrier.
  16. #536  
    I will update the Makefile on Sunday to mount the media partition and run it from there. It has enough space
  17. #537  
    Back to 2.1.2 now since I can't dial with new ROM and new modem firmware in China.

    Thanks pl212, it worked for me too. I was going to try something like that today, but as you could do it earlier it is great (and safer! )
    I didn't do the A6 update though, but I don't see the point, since I don't have a touchpad, I will probably never use the TTS feature.
  19. #539  
    My main phone is now up to 2.2.3, and has the modem update as was needed.

    To anyone who hasnt done this. I'd seriously wait. Not worth the pain of bricking your phone nor the unknown quantities. The processes do not give enough user feedback, so if you are not tech savy i'd hold off.

    I just need to decided if I try the a6update again. bed time first.
