    This poll is a little dumb. No offense, but phone being complete hosed, and needing multiple attempts should be separate because the latter means that it eventually worked.

    I would think that those who are cautious about updating would want to know the complete failures, not the people who eventually gotten it working.

    Update went fine but I had to manually reinstall Java, Opera Mini and FontSmoother after update.

    Did a full backup and sync first.

    Try 1:
    Install program crashed, leaving files and taking up room on Treo that had to be manually removed to allow room for next try. Thanks to users here for identifying those files for me.

    Try 2: Routine completed normally, but...
    Provision problems (thanks to users here for showing the trick for this)
    Google maps and PTunes would crash Treo
    Phone favorites and bluetooth settings gone

    Fixes:
    Got it provisioned
    Reinstalled Google maps (thanks to users here for suggesting that)
    Copied over Ptunes pro from backup
    Copied phone favorites from backup (PhoneFavorites2DB)
    Set up new bluetooth profiles

    Result:
    A much snappier Treo. Program switching is now back to the good old 650 days; makes a big difference in the Treo experience.
    Ptunes is much much smoother (not perfect but 90% better)
    Bluetooth seems OK but need to experiment more.
    Enjoying all the little fixes that came along with the MR

    Thanks Palm for the update; better late than never I guess.

    I can't imagine, though how a non-power user would ever figure out what to do with all the MR bugs that I experienced. Even as a power user, the help from the collective experience of other posters was invalauable. Thanks to the Treocentral community!

So I finally hard reset my Treo and installed from the SD card for a perfect installation!
    How do you get the update to the card?

    I have not done the update and I have those in Blazer.

    On the update page there are four options to download the update.
    1. Windows 200 and XP that requires no card
    2. Windows Vista (requires blank SD card and reader)
    3. Mac OSX (requires blank SD card and reader)
    4. Enterprise and IT (requires blank SD card and reader)

    Not sure of the difference (if andy) in the ones that you can load in the card, but they each point to a different URL. I would use the one for enterprise and IT.

    The first 3 times I tried, it stopped after about 5 minutes and disconnected. (I did have enough memory.) I then backed up to NVBackup and did a hard reset. It then installed with no trouble, I did a restore, and everything seems to be working including PDANet and Gmaps.

    Bricked my 700p Today.

    Sprint store gave me a brand new 700p on the spot.

    BTW noone in the store even knew about the update - even the tech guys .

    I'm in continuous reboot hell right now, trying to find a way out.

    I wonder if this poll had any impact on Palm's decision to pull the update.

    My update was successful. The only issue was: in the instructions on Palm's website, they mentioned something about "screen calibration" and "language selection" before the update was complete (step 7 or 8). The update seemed to finish, but then it prompted me again if I wanted to update. I did, and about 40 minutes later the update finished. ROM is correct. App versions are correct. PRL Rev is correct.

    Method used:
    1) Backup using RescoBackup
    2) Hard reset
    3) Download and install update on a fresh SD card
    4) Restore from backup

    I found that the Bluetooth tether hack didn't work, but resolved it by deleting the Treo from my trusted devices on the Mac, then adding it again. Also, overwrote the hack from the backup with a fresh prc.

    My 700p had actually been stable for the past few weeks. Hopefully the patch doesn't change that.

    Good luck to everyone.

    I selected the 3rd option.

    Although..........

    I was in loop hell Monday night via the tethered method. I pulled out of it and got smart and did a hard reset and did the SD install method. I had done a backup to a separate SD card and once I was "clean" I restored from my other card.

    Im up and running and things seem to be working fine.
    ONE can be spelled as NEO.

    After successfully updating several Treos I attest the SD method as described above is the most reliable and problem-free. We have updated almost twenty Treos now and all have worked well. We back-up to SD (using NVBackup instead), hard reset and installed MR from SD followed by SD restore with no problems. All programs working...using PDANet to post this now.

    As far as improvements: Some minor speed improvement (less lag) most notable in Blazer. Bluetooth connection is more reliable - beware of additional menu options in preference panel to send calls automatically to the headset vs the phone. P-Tunes skipping is much improved.
    Have a great one...Doc D.

    Bricked one 700p, got it to work the new 700p they gave me as a replacement.

    If not for all the tech support I received on this forum, i would not have gotten it to work period. Reset loop was solved with power cord in, battery out, hard reset. Saved my second, might have saved my first but didn't read about it until after the fact. Tech guys at sprint store didn't get it working, don't know what they tried.

    Happy with update, got all my info back except p-tunes deluxe, just had to install it again from the installer on my card. Google maps even works from the old version. Good update after several hours of futzing, but it works now.

    No problems with the update. Interaction problem with Call Block and TakePhone; Mundu Radio reset, installed latest beta, it reset once, then played and then lost the play list. No improvement in speed and since I did not have a problem with skipping, nothing there either. Ben

    I agree. I initially had problems, but then after I got out of the power/target loop....I was then able to update using the SD Card without any problems. It took about 40 minutes to complete the update. Can they add another option to the poll about those who had issues but worked them out? I would also be interested in the number of complete failures.

    my whole MR update went really well. I followed instructions to the tee. Took maybe around 30-45 minutes..

    btw...i did the SD card backup

    My blazer is amazingly fast...however, all my other problems still exists such as the white screen of death and random resets while using programs.

    My TCL has so far logged Web, MemoryMgr.c., Line:5346, Chunk under-locked....anyone have any idea what this means?

    The update worked, but luckily I had Resco because several apps/games did not come back on their own, or had lost data. I don't synch my contacts with Outlook, and those had to be brought back from backup.

    My only remaining problem is that my unread email count icon is gone from the phone application, and I can't figure out how to get it back. Anyone else seen this?

    Just wanted to add that I went with the SD update. At the end I had to do the *228 option 1 and then 2 but so far so good.
    Ode to the Treo Pro: you had to look so good, you had to be HTC in disguise...
