So, I downloaded the patch this morning.
Backed up and charged the treo.
Made room for the patched.
Ran the patch.
the device reset.
it started to install.
it stopped around 1/8th the way through.
10 minutes later still at 1/8th.
Called handspring.
The guy said to wait another 10-15 minutes and call back.
Called back.
new guy said hit the reset.
I did.
Treo back to original state.
he said do the patch again.
Same results.

Boo hoo.

treo works.
