If you crashed you XDA ( mine is Qtek 1010 ) after update
Hi all, Im just new here and thanks alot for u all..
my Qtek 1010 back again to the life :lol:
Once I decided to upgrade my Qtek 1010 (StrongARM) to the new CE ROM which is the 3.16 the newest one while in writing this and you can get it from www.qtek.dk
& to upgrade to the newest radio ROM 4.19 and you can get it from the same web site. I CRUSHED MY Qtek 1010 and nothing can do. Please read my full story to find the correct way to upgrade your Qtek 1010 or any other XDA as an experience of mine.
The fault that I made which crushed my pocket pc is that I upgraded the GSM ROM with out making a hard reset to my device before the upgrading process so that a file confliction happened with other installed programs with the new GSM ROM file while it being uploaded to the GSM ROM. Windows CE OS trying to show up a massage to you but can not done because of the dependent of the OS on the GSM ROM. On other words windows CE phone edition depend on the GSM ROM for operating normally other ways it not going to be steady the OS will stop and trying to load the GSM ROM if fail it will stop at this step. System not crushed yet it stopped to this point and waiting for GSM ROM programming (Program B) to be fixed. It can be fixed by various ways the easiest one is the way I have done.
ATTENTION: BEFORE UPGRADING ALLWAYS BE SURE YOUR DEVICE BATTERY IF FULLY RECHARGED.
Qtek 1010 corrupted after Radio Stack Upgrade. Windows CE operate but not normally, just the today screen shows up when pressing the volume button.
To fixed the device.
