    I don't have daily freezes.

    I didn't have any problem with DTMF before, but they are definitely faster with FW 1.43 .

    So will you be able to go back to an older version if this one sucks? Will yo be able to install the "official version" over it once it is released?

    Something I noticed about this update...

    One of the files needed for the update is called FirmwareStackDebug.pdb

    In previous FW Updates, the same file was named FirmwareStackRel.pdb

    I'm going to install 1.43 anyway because, technically, I *should* be able to go back 1.31, if I choose to. However, I think that this version is not a complete update. Its probably used by POS programmers just for finding/diagnosing problems.

    I only installed the firmware so far. The main change I noticed (Maybe WRONG) is the faster phone app loading. In version 1.31, I need 2~3 sec to load the phone application, while in version 1.43, only 1~1.5 sec is needed. Just estimate, no scientific measurement. I didn't find the noticable volume increase as others pointed out, which may be because I use volumecare all the time.

    The Chinese software includes CJKOS which is a Chinese IME, what appears to be some sort of firewall, Chinese versions of Butler, McPhling, RescoExplorer, PowerRun, VolumeCare and a Chinese dictionary. It also includes a TealCalc DA but it is in a RAR file. Not sure how that works. Finally, there is something called FixMPY650, the Chinese in the filename just says it was created by some guy surnamed Xu, have no idea what it does.

    So this is just a custom rom image distributed by some chinese guy? And if so, how did they make the improvements like volume and DTMF tone length? I think maybe these chinese know some things we don't ... if only we could collaborate.

    Treos are made in Taiwan. Relationships are everything in Asia and if you know the right people you can get just about anything. Likely some guy has a connection to somebody that leaks him any updates, official or not. There is a pretty strong software industry in Asia so there are plenty of guys that know how to do custom ROMs and whatnot so this is likely a custom ROM done with a leaked update.

    The nice thing is that unofficial updates are making progress on some of the issues so maybe an official update with these and more improvements is around the corner.

    No. There's 3 pieces to this update:
    1. The phone firmware update, 01.43, that MFB posted
    2. The ROM software update, Treo650-1.14dbg/6000
    3. The Chinese custom ROM, which contains the above mentioned apps

    Numbers 1 & 2 are, I assume, products of Palmsource.

    Are you saying there is a real version of VolumeCare on this ROM that is converted to Chinese?

    Just installed the 1.43 update, will notify all of any changes.

    shouldn't everyone be more careful with this? if its not possible to reverse the previous updatees, this one may be the same - and I would think you might run into warranty problems with a beta leaked firmware.

    You've got to have some brave souls out there willing to try these things. What are we supposed to do...wait for OFFICIAL releases??? HA! I lack the patience...and self-control.

    Have to agree. You unofficial ROM adopters are either brave or nuts.

    It's particularly amazing in light of how little benefit the new ROM is turning out to be.

    Hi Jeff,

    The file is listed as "VolumeCareV4[1].19CN.prc. The CN is for Chinese the same as EN is for English so I assume it has been altered to run Chinese menus etc. although I have not installed it so cannot say for sure. I don't see any other reason to change the EN to CN though.

    For those who have installed this 1.43 update.... do you get a new stereo bluetooth profile or not ?
    that would require an update of the bluetooth stack to 2.0 which this does not do...read the first page of this thread
    Bluetooth 2.0 is not required to install a stereo BT headphone. Some BT 1.1 device and many BT 1.2 devices can handle the required A2DP profile.

    Jeff

    Here is the file in question Jeff. I got this from the uploaded 1.43 1.14 DBG from HiPDA


    Rob,

    You might want to see Butler's chinese version too.

    hmmm...not according to whar I've read. All the info I've read is that you need BT 2.0 on the treo to support A2DP.
  19. #59  
    The fact is that we really don't know which version of BT is required on the Treo 650 to support A2DP.

    Another fact is that some BT 1.1 or 1.2 device do support this profile.

    Maybe AD2P profile support will be introduced on the Treo at the same time we get bluetooth 2.0, but who knows ? Maybe Palm engineers do....

    Will keep you posted if I notice any difference compaired to 1.31.
    I have noticed no new features on the Treo, but this was expected as the phone firmware is only destined to control the GSM radio itself.

    The GSM software does seem to be an improvement. The phone seems to connect slightly faster to the network, EDGE seems to be better, and insofar I have avoided any freezing of the Treo caused by the GSM radio. I had the freezing quite often with both version 1.28 and 1.31 of the GSM software.
