Subject: T-Mobile upgrade
Date: 06 Jan, 2003 04:42:03
I have no idea how I found this forum. I am sure I am over my
head being here, and under everyone else's but I'm really hoping
that you don't dump this, and that someone may be able to answer
my question. I feel like I accidently fell into the Star Ship.
I upgraded on my T-Mobile Pocket PC (Philadelphia area USA),
successfully shortly after it's release. Did it all according to
instructions including hard re-set.
Everything seemed to go very well afterwards.
Several days later, I was(stupidly for me) messing around in
File Explorer, found and tapped a file labelled "rsupgrage"
dated 11/25/02 w 34k".
Bang! It started a new *brief) upgrade process but with out the
requirement to hard re-set.
BTW there is a 2nd similar file marked "rsupgrade" dated
ROM version: 3.14.40 ENG
ROM date: 11/26/02
Radio version: 6.18
Protocol version: 324e4
Model No: PW101B1
Aside from the fact that in the little box that comes up
when the phone is on there is either no carrier name or T-
Mobile name (simple lettering, no logo), I am not sure that
nothing happened to screw up the original upgrade process
which went with out a hitch.
Everything still works, I think, quite well.
I would appreciate someone checking their settings after
their upgrade and comfirming that all mine are ok. Especially
Or do I have to do the whole thing all over again?
BTW, I am cured of venturing into File Explorer!

Subject: You have upgraded to RS 4.14
Date: 06 Jan, 2003 11:47:50
you have accidently downloaded a radio version 4.14 which is
meant for O2 Europe, probably from www.o2.ie
This is designed for 900/1800 Mhz band, not your US 1900 band.
You will have to get a Radio Stack (RS) designed for your MDA.

Actually it sounds like you simply "re-upgraded" your Radio
The T-Mobile USA update that's on their site includes the two
rsupgrade files (an executable and the ROM image) as files in
the CE ROM image that the main upgrade did.
Because these files are part of the ROM image, they don't take
up any space, but they do hang around (visible in File Explorer)
after the upgrade.
Basically, the part of the upgrade that happens while your phone
is on the cradle upgrades your OS, then, when you first
re-booted, that executable gets run and upgrades the Radio Stack
(what people on this forum call the GSM ROM.)
So, you didn't do anything too terribly wrong, just re-ran an
upgrade that had already happened -- and since the upgrade was
allowed to finish, your phone should be working fine. That
version is the correct T-Mobile USA version at the moment...
it's the one that shipped with the upgrade.
