SPV M1000 Rom Upgrade

Just tried this update and received an error message.
Took the phone out of the craddle and performed a soft reset..
Screen still says "Serial V1. 03"
I cannot get it to do anything.
How do you perform a hard reset? Have tried pressing reset button with no battery (battery catch up and down) and tried letting the case touch the pins on the phone which can reset it.


With thanks

It now works!!! PHEW!!
Tried the hard reset & nothing happens.

What I did was hard reset then tried the update again... software now tells me that phone is now not compatible with the update.

I then repeated the above 17 panic-stricken times (both reset then update) and eventually it started the update process. Has now finally completed.

I was so worried!

GRPS is still flaky and still waiting for the MMS message sent to myself to go through (a bit slow).

Quick question for those who have updated

Could any of you that have done the update please tell me what ROM version do you get after the update? 1.52, 1.60, the last 1.72?

Have u noticed any improvement with the use of BT (expecially with GPS).

Hard reset ???
I also upgraded my SPV with this ROM with MMS. I found no improvements, but 1 major problem. Sometimes the SPV is in suspend mode, i wait for several of minutes and want to push the power button, the device doesnt seem to react. Putting in the cradle isnt working also and taking the battery out and in again is also a failure. So the only sollution is to hard reset the m1000. Since the upgrade (2 weeks ago) i performed 2 hard resets. You guys also got the same problem? Or do you know how to fix this? I tried to upgrade my orange rom to the original Qtek 1.72 rom, but i got a message 120: error country code. So any ideas?

Thanks for that link.

I needed to restore my m1000 back to 2003SE after an experiment in upgrading to WM6 and realised I didn't have the ROM.
