    ok so doing sd2ram ALL resulted in a nonworking device (screen will not turn on)

    i am restoring the 700p image now and if successful i will attempt to flash only the os portion. i think that the issue may be the incompatible video driver as the bootloader is still working (even though i cant see anything)

    ***UPDATE***
    BOOM!!! restore worked, we now have a way to unbrick 700p's (provided you have a backup) i can give anyone who needs it an image to dd to a 512mb sd card

    ok fellas, my plan for the day really got screwed up. I had copied an os only image from the wx last night and I was going to try to flash it to the p today...but it accidently got formatted and my girlfriend has the wx with her. if anyone can do a 'ram2sd os' from a wx and upload it that would be helpful. in the mean time I will be at work until 4pm MST and then I can start hacking on this some more.

    I was going to try to upload the image I downloaded from the wx but I wasn't able to in time.

    I do however have my computer with me and may be able to get some work done during the down times. please if anyone has any knowledge of what to do with these images...help me out.

    Should you not be using an image from the 700w vs wx? The W is parameters set for 32 MB SDRAM, like the 700p, whereas the Wx image would expect 64MB, and would therefore automatically never work.

    Wont the 320x320 screen continue to be a problem also?

    you know I was going to try to get a 700w rom and work with that (if someone has one PLEASE give it to me) but I also noticed the verizon rom update is the same for w as wx...not sure if that means the roms are interchangeable

    oh and I am going to try if I can flash just the os portion. what this hopefully will do is cause the unit to boot past the bootloader although it most likely won't display video once the os takes over.

    this I think will be a start and once we have that we can begin pulling apart the os portion itself and hacking in video drivers and such.

    at least now I know I can always go back

    So your 700wx does not have rom software in it anymore?

    does all this work potentially move us toward custom roms? IE roms without the bloatware?

    ONE can be spelled as NEO.

    it does. if we can figure this out we can almost certainly expect to be able to modify the os image portion to add or remove as we like

    well it was a fun ride....but i think now i am stuck.

    i flashed the ce os only image from the wx and it TIMED OUT half way through the flash. when the phone rebooted rather than showing anything the led and screen flash very quickly in white. the treo will not go into bootloader either.


    oh well, back to the junk drawer it goes i guess

    I guess the only guy with an 700wx that has worked with the ruu command is Alias/Techguy40. Either that or jtag?

    I have a 700wx VZW raw rom dump that I found somewhere in the past. Would uploading it be helpful..?

    I've got no wx hardware to work with.
    In one message, I forgot where, someone said they replace the screen in 700p with 700wx one (or vice versa) and the palm didn't boot.

    Therefore we would need to edit some bootup files via IDA (to fix mainly the resolution)??. maybe fearall can help at vistabugs forum?

    I have been searching for a way to get a WX or other WM solution for my dissatisfaction with my 700p for months now. If you guys manage to get this working it'll save me about $200 in new Treo, thusly, I offer emotional support for this project as much as it is appreciated, and I hope this works out!!!

    If lovedatreo do go online again.. (Since 4/4/08)

    He can try: (by Ebag333)

    I may have just debricked my phone.

    1. Formatted SD card to Fat32.
    2. Download and drop the Sprint 700wx SD Updater 1.15 update onto the card (keeping the same directory structure).
    3. Take battery out.
    4. Hold up on the volume.
    5. Put battery in.
    6. Phone asks if you want to update the rom.
    7. Hit the up arrow.
    8. Cross fingers.


    The rom update is going now. I'll give feedback as to if it works. If it does...then it means you can pretty much do an update and should be able to revert to "stock" without too much issue. (Insert standard disclaimers here)


    Incidentally holding the side button (below volume control) seems to show something odd. Not sure what it means (some sort of rom/bootloader version number?).

    Assuming this works we're still limited to editing the /windows/ directory, but we should be able to replace somewhere between 3 and 6 megs worth of files.

    /me edits

    Success!

    Now that I know I can get back to a "safe" point at any time, I'll play around more with different roms tommorrow. Out of the /windows/ directory (remember with this method we can only add/remove files directly in the /windows directory) does anyone have any files in particular they'd like to be removed?

    Maybe reading 700p rom and being able to dump it on another 700p would be a better start... Solution for many also... I have a good 700p and a bricked 700p I could try it with...
