Ok, I'm by no means an expert when it comes to ROMs and flashing etc but it sounds to me it's not flashing the binary file (the ROM file), hence why it's booting back into WinMo 6.5.

In the common downloader, after you browse for the folder containing the ROM, did you click advanced and check the following files are ticked:

partition.mbn
NPRG8650.hex
flash.bin

Sorry if this isn't any help to you, where's Miro when we need him
Otherwise, I don't understand why it wouldnt work because our phones are the same, presumably you bought it in England like I did so the hardware should be the same. Mine worked like a charm. I can flash back and forth with no problems.
Also, are you using mi7ROM_3_8107.79.zip ?

Also, check your SD card isn't locked up before the flashing process. I think a freshly formatted SD card works best. Good luck!

It can't be the computer then. It must be either the phone, the SD card or the software/ ROM files.

Don't know what SD card you're using, but the toshiba SD card that came with the phone caused me no end of problems such as crashing so I had to replace it with a... sandisk I think it is.

Thankyou for the reply. Yes, I did check in advanced that the 3 files were ticked, and I am using mi7ROM_3_8107.79.zip. The SD card is brand new, and is not locked down.

Phone is
model no. TG01 Type:TM5-E01

Does this information help?

Cheers,
Dave

I thought I would dust off my TG01 after my SGS2 was stolen.

I thought I would give WP7 a go. I have successfully installed the new bootloader, and I turn on the phone with the camera button pressed. The L.E.D. Turns white.

Next I run the Common Downloader, select the rom files for wp7, and hit start.

The L.E.D. Turns from White to pale blue. It then says : Downloading NPRG8650.hex briefly, then : Running RAM.... and sits there forever.

Using brand new install of windows XP 32bit, all drivers installed correctly.

I have seen one person in this thread with the same problem, and he was told to use XP.

Any suggestions?

-=Edit=-
Progress stays at 0%

Thankyou so much in advance,
Regards,
Dave

The L.E.D. Turns white. I ask you, why i write this guide- when you not read it? iīm tired, to explain.

if you write it and do step by step- then you find out: to flash wp7 rom with common downloader you need B L U E Led. If not, you have not the wp7 bootloader sucessful installed in above steps. The L.E.D. Turns white= you are on wm6.5 bootloader

it seems you have a trouble with sd card. in first image you can read- noting loaded from it. Formate new your card and turn in wp7 downloadmode (blue led) and flash again. BUT if you have to much times try to solve- your battery will be empty- and then wp7 canīt not boot

Hello All,

So I'm stuck on a particular step. I've gotten everything to work. I've got the windows 7 Boot Loader working as well with the BLUE LED. When I connect to to the ZTEiT Common downloader with a Windows 7 Tango ROM. It get's stuck on the "Running Ram..." section with 0% progress. It's been this way for around 40 mins. Any ideas gentlemen?

EDIT: Just FYI. I am able to get a blue led. It is on solid. I switched to the Mango Rom and now I'm just simple getting RAM Run Failed.

If is show you only "Running Ram..." is false. I think you have not all files selected.
you need in same folder three files: partition.mbn, NPRG8650.hex and the ROM file flash.bin

press browse to select the folder and advanced to check are the three files selected! normally the progress are "Downloading flash.bin" 1% on ca. 7:30 min, 2% on ca. 15:00 min and 3% done on 22:00 min ......
