    Picturemail's worked since about the end of the first month for me, especially when I wrote my own entire back end. What are the settings that I should use instead then?

    The converting/patching you only do once.

    Has anyone called for support and gotten a decent answer and not been told to completely delete everything on the unit?

    So I will finally have access to a Verizon Treo 600 early next week. I have been trying to figure out the best way to backup and restore the firmware. KWPST seems to only load new firmware (not backup existing). Does BackupBuddy do this? Any ideas? I will of course share the firmware if I can get it extracted from the phone.

    hmmm, how come the guy that did this just disappeared?

    Treo 600 in December '03, Treo 650 in February '05, HTC TyTN Pro in August '06, and back to Treo 750 in January '07, find me at MyTreo.net

    Since there haven't been any suggestions, I am going to try using Rom Transfer Extension 3.3 and Syncwizard 1.9.9 to see if I can successfully extract the Verizon ROM and copy it to the Sprint Treo. I'll post my results!

    Thanks larat, keep us posted. We would love to see if it works.

    Well, I have successfully extracted the Verizon ROM using ROM Transfer Extension. The file size is 8,912,896 bytes, which is considerably larger than the Sprint ROM (7,340,032 bytes).

    Now the question is how to flash the Verizon ROM on the Sprint Treo.

    Any ideas?

    I wish there was a way to extract the "installer" from the last Sprint update.

    The safest one would probably from that Kyocera software used to "convert" the Treo.

    If JackFlash/Sprat support the Treo, we could have used that.

    Anyone else?

    I emailed the makers of Jacklfash/Sprat and they said the Treo 600 was not compatible with their software

    There seems to be a "how to" at:

    ps....I'd like the VZ update too, I was running my Sprint phone on VZ network when it stopped accessing the wireless network (not it just reboots everytime).

    Hey larat, does that link help you at all?

    No, it doesn't. All it does it tell you how to download the updater from the palmone site and run it. It there WERE an updater on the palmone site, we could all just download and install it.

    It seems that the 8MB ROM isn't usable anyway, since the ROM size on the Treo 600 is only 4 MB (the rom is compressed), so what I have is the uncompressed ROM.

    I think we have no choice but to wait for a Verizon updater from P1.
