    temna: Please post the contents of the log window and the bootloader log (if you are using the latest version of the tool), as well as the information from "copy to clipboard" on the phone info tab.

    We're willing to help - just help us get some information to help you.

    Your phone isn't dead in any way - we just need to get a proper rom on there.

    I downloaded my custom ROM from my phone to a directory. I then made a copy of the directory so I would have a backup. Then I altered the directory by taking out and adding the .prc's I wanted in my altered custom ROM. Once finished, I uploaded the new directory to the phone. I have altered the ROM 3 or 4 times and have changed 2 colleagues to get rid of unwanted items. I used this method for the two colleagues as well.

    After working with this new ROM tool, I came to the conclusion the safest way to upload a new ROM is:

    1. Install a new Palm release following Palm’s directions.
    2. Terminate the HotSync Manager.
    3. Start mmastrac's Rom tool.
    4. Press and hold the HotSync button and reset TREO to start the boot loader then release HotSync button. Wait until you notified Device Status is set to ready. I use a rubber band to keep the HotSync cable firmly connected to the TREO.
    5. On mmastrac's tool Click on Download ROM tab then click on Directory radio button. Then select an Output Directory followed by clicking on Download button. (No JAVA needed).
    6. Copy the Output Download directory contents to an Upload directory.
    7. Delete / add applications into this Upload directory via Windows Explorer like you did with Shadowmite’s ROM tool.
    8. On mmastrac's tool and click on Upload ROM tab. Select your ROM Source as the Upload directory you worked on in step. The directory will automatically be ZIPPED and MD5 just like the Shadowmite’s ROM tool would do. If Wasted Space is not grater than zero then New ROM will not fit. Remove items from the Upload directory and click on Refresh button to recalculate. When wasted space is greater than zero click on Upload button.
    9. When complete reset TREO.

    Please critique.

    That sounds almost exactly what I do. I was to lazy to list the steps as you did.
    I think that just about anyone can follow these steps.
    Great job!

    The instructions are great. The one thing I have found that I really like about the new tool is that I don't have to do restore after uploading the changed ROM. Of course, I always do a backup just in case. But, so far, I have not needed to do a restore. This tool is very cool.

    That's what I did, except that I didn't stop the HotSync Manager and didn't reset at the end.

    How did you get the phone back up if you didn't reset after the upload?

    You're right, I did reset. I was thinking of a hard reset which wasn't needed using this tool.

    I think I will email you, because EVERY time I try to convert the ROM, RomToll crashes.. EVERY STINKING TIME..

    James, that step by step is great. Could you include links that tell what can be put in a ROM (what works and what doesn't), and also how to know the limit of how much can be included?

    I wish I had time to try this today. . .
    NiceGPSuperior1 is a free GPS program, now with the ability to save your map! Get more info here. It's free! If you like this app and want to encourage development, you can donate from the web page link.

    I have not got good results in getting into the boot loader by first resetting then pressing the HotSync; I guess I am all thumbs. When I click the HotSync it stated the windows HotSync Manager program. I was experimenting and at the time the excellent document StepbyStep RomTool by jamesgangut was not available for the Beta software.

    Another observation was you can get into the boot loader either before or after starting the RomTool.

    As far as what works and what doesn't, this post has a good list that is updated farely frequently.
