    Perhaps some kind soul (James??) can point me in the right direction with this. I was happily running the stripped chinese version 1.71/1.20-ROW with not a care in the world. Along comes the new and approved ENA version. Leave well enough alone? NOT I! So, into the breach I go with James' new stripped version (Again, much thanks to James, bless his head) and while nothing bad happens, no change to the ENA version either. Being a mac tribesman, first loadiing the palm version is not an immediate possiblity for me. So, where's all this going you ask? Good question.

    1. Is there any reason to upgrade from very nice 1.20=Row version?
    2. Will loading the new Palm (mac) version allow me to then load James' stripped version on top? (don't like or need versamail/Realplayer)
    3. Is digging up a prior official Palm ROW version and loading that and then the ENA an idea? Can an older version load ontop of my current 1.71/1.20 ROW.
    4. Why do birds suddenly appear whenever you are near????

    Thanks in advance for any and all help

    Thanks James...I will try one of your custom ROMs tonight most probably and report back...unless you think you are going to make any more changes I will use the ones you posted last? You're a superstar.

    The only oddity I have come across so far is having to reinput my eReader Pro reg code...

    Cheers, J

    I could have waited but that would have been most unlike me...

    Now I just have to pluck up the courage to try flashing a custom ROM from SD...

    I can see no earthly reason why Palm couldn't have posted the Mac update at the same time. Presumably all the data is the same and it just had to be repackaged as a DMG or PKG file...

    Although the last time I flashed the 650 ROM via the Mac it seemed pretty clumsy anyway...deleting the user backup folder manually and stuff...so no real installer anyway.

    Sorry for my ignorance, I have read this entire thread and Im not sure if this applies to a Verizon branded phone?

    If not, then I wait till Palms website offers it specifically?

    Thanks!

    I think this applies to Unlocked GSM phones only. But I think there are also ways to flash your Verizon handset to be Unlocked...but you'd better wait for an answer from an expert! I'm a novice at flashing Treos...

    Fell at the first hurdle! I am away from home and can only use the SD method of updating. I followed a link to get the FULL version 'Treo_650_120_ENA_full.zip'
    Unzipping the file using WinZip took me to 66 files. The 'read me' text file tells me to use shadowmites rom instructions. Problem is it mentions in step 3 to copy the Palm and Rom folders to the SD card... WinZip does no show any folders, just the 66 unzipped files. Am I doing something very basically wrong that I cannot see these two folders?


    Duh, OK used Explore and got them... basic or what?

    Yes. I did use Palms updater but it would freeze after it tried to flash the rom. I never could get it to stop doing that. I thought i would need to revert to original palm software and firmware to get the updater to work. What do I do?

    SMS/MESSAGES TIME STAMPS BUG ARE STILL IN 1.71 120 ENA
    this rom is the same exact rom as the Chinese ROM 171 1.20APR version minus CJKOS!!!

    If timestamps are important you should revert back to 1.28/1.31

    I ran the Palm 1.20/1.71 ENA updater and it took -- showed updated in Phone Info -- but it didn't work -- and through all the ROMs and updates prior I have never ever had a glitch. Even FileZ reset the thing. But James's stripped ROM (English, no Real, no Versa), via SD Card, saved the day. However, I also got the
    firmware error message, as shown on this thread -- so I decided to hell with that, and just updated the ROM (since I already had 1.20 from official Palm update. In fact, I had it on from James's tweak of the leaked Chinese version) ... and that worked great. Thanks James.

    My update crashed, but I was finally able to get it to work after doing it again. I had to do a hard reset and install under a different hotsync name.

    If any forgot, please remember a few good suggestions
    not always necassary, but has been pretty reliable.
    1. Hard Reset First
    2. Flash Back to 1.23
    3. Install Official Update as per Official Instructions.
    4. Then if all has gone well, then Do James' Rom Flash. as per SD method (rev cvt2, ace)

    At this point, I don't see any major advantages to the ENA over APR. except 1.5 mb ram gain. We all got that gain w/ james' Row.
    ENA has No china. Also this is an Official Update (warranty?)
    So far, best success has been from first Hard Reset,Flashing back to 1.23,Install Official,Then do the James' Rom.

    So how come so many people also say they have Firmware 1.71? Does one need that, where is it found, etc...

    Cheers
    Anyone on GSM can use the update.
    Instructs repeated thru-out thread.

    Sometimes You have to do a Zero-Out-Reset (Search Forum for instructs)
    Then start from scratch as per instructs thru-out this thread.
