Default new problem

The first os was cool the one by xda, but then i cooked up one with the win2003 but i have to many redundent programs and a full system. i like the 2003 so i cooked up one "lite" rom for myself but when i go to flash i now get this..... error 011: EXECUTE THE REMOTE COMMUNICATION PROGRAM ERROR
Cannot execute the remote communication program.
Please make sure that the USB/Serial cable is properly conected.
active sync is working and syncing data fine what im i doing wrong?
p.s. i even tried to go back to the "special" rom but get same responce.

do a search for iphone skins in the forum there are tons!
and such skins are not taylor'd for specielt devices as a rule
most programs made for windows mobile work for all devices

Default esn hex?? Cricket??

Hey guys I got a good rom in and got a mostly working iphone mod going too.
Now i would like to put this phone on my Cricket account and they say all they need is a esn # and hex#, do you know how i could get these #'s or do i need to flash the rom to something else to make it compatible with the cricket perpaid system?
