    Seems some folks have installed the Asia leak, cleaned or not, GSM FW 1.71/SW 1.20 Ok, and others have had a difficult time.

    What are your specific issues, and ROM you are trying to use?

    Could the Asia ROM possibly have different enough code, that it does not read the US ROW ROM well enough to flash smoothly and consistently?

    What could be causing the inconsistent flashes?

    What ROM are you using?
    Will your Treo recognize the SD card and read any contents?
    You put the ROM via your PC/SD card installation method?
    What ROM set does your Treo currently have?
    When did you download the ROM?

    I found Custom 3&4 have no Multimail*.prc. I cannot see versamail application. Please help to add them. Thank you.

    Ok...what am I doing wrong here? Here are my steps:

    1. I format an SD card.

    2. Unzip ROM Custom 1 to the root of the SD card. I don't change any directory names - I unzip just as it is.

    3. I then hard reset my Treo, plug it into the wall charger.

    4. Insert the SD card, FW update runs successfully.

    Then it tries to update the ROM and fails with the message "Error Updating ROM".

    I do a hard reset - FW is 1.71, SW is still 1.13 ROW. The ROM/SW never upgrades.

    Thoughts??

    Don't know if this will help anyone or not. I downloaded the update from the Chinese site and installed it as is. I live in China and use Chinese a lot so I didn't have any reason to remove the Chinese files. My installation went without problem. After the installation I installed all my apps and found that AltKey caused some problems and I would get into an endless reset loop which I could break with a warm reset, which disables AltKey, then soft reset. Once I removed AltKey I have had no more issues. I am using FieldPlus to access the command bar now and all other functions are disabled. There doesn't seem to be any conflicts with it. Other than that I have had no problems at all and it is very stable.

    Thus, I suspect for those with problems that during installation it is looking for something that has been removed in the custom ROMS, even the ones with CJKOS left in.

    For anyone interested, with CJKOS, Penpower and all the Chinese files in ROM rather than RAM total memory is reduced but memory left increased by about 2 MB. The Chinese ROM doesn't include the phrase association files so you can install those in RAM and they work fine.

    I try to upgrade to custom #4 again with Multimail. And now I got the error message "error updating rom". I try many times but got the same error. Downgrade to 1.13/1.28 by SD card method and upgrade again and got error message again. It looks like custom #3 and Custom #4 not complete. Please help to check the ROMs.

    if the fw is already 1.71 and you want to flash it again, you have to flash with unaltered rom first, then with custermised rom.
    Treo 750 unbranded T-mobile, HTC WIZARD 8125 T-MOBILE (broken), Treo 650 T-mobile 1.43/1.14 OS 5.4.8 Garnet (sold).

    So it seems it is not ROM specific? Custom 1 or Custom 4 - both bombs...

    Custom 4 worked fine yesturday, but was missing some files. The updated version is not working now.

    Strange how some have no problem and others are crashing and burning. Any ideas from the technical gurus out there? I can't imagine we are ALL applying the update incorrectly - that part is pretty darn simple - could it be the revision of hardware we are using? Every update of ROM I apply bombs - Custom 1 or Custom 4 - FW update is fine. Currently 1.71.

    My Treo is only two months old - came from the factory with FW 1.28 SW 1.13. Maybe that is the issue? Thoughts anyone??

    Finally did it with Keysersoze's rom trimmed down
    3 or 4 times until it's updated correctly.
    man, it was a bit frightening but only took 15 seconds....
    no HD between tries.
    now blazer ver is 4.3.2.1, no versa, no real, no tutorial, WOW :-)
    DB is almost 13mb but the free memory down by 1mb :-(
    on the good side, it's one stable build !! i think i'll stick with it until the end of my treo.....
    ha, or just until the next leak show up :-)
    tx to anyone who helped with this

    Same problems here with the #4 rom. However, kaisersoze's rom did work. Note the URL is wrong. The correct URL is

    It seems from both the 1.71/1.20 forums that many people are getting incomplete upgrades with the customized ROMs. I installed the original unadulterated Chinese package and both my Versamail and Blazer updated to v3.1 and v4.3.2 respectively. Bluetooth range is much greater.

    Is the original, un-altered Chinese still available? I think the one from hi-pda has been removed. Anyone could point me where I can find that elsewhere? Thanks in advance.
