I took apart the stock Cingular upgrade from the HTC site and followed your tutorial to the letter. I got the 8125 close to what the stock Cingular settings are by manual configuration and someone was nice enough to post the Cingular Extension Rom contents elseware on this board. But I would really like to get the darn extension rom back on my phone.

1.all files in ext rom must be read only before making nk.nbf
2.If U add any cab that is not signed U must put Cert_SPCS.cab as first one to install which allows not signed cabs to install without bypassing them

Uhm... yep... you're right, i should have posted the english RUU, and i'll do one day or another.
Anyway, when it gives you the error it also shows an error code. The file readme.doc (included in RUU.rar) contains all these error codes explained in english. Check there.

Bye

You're not the first one that experienced this problem. I'm starting to think that it may be caused by a different certificates configuration in newer t-mobile 2.26 and cingular 2.25 roms. It's the only possible solution i have in mind.

You could try to cook a rom with OS and extrom both taken from the same rom (i.e. OS and extrom both from 2.26) and see if that works. Then, we could try to find a solution for extrom taken from different roms.

It's quite weird though... I'll try to cook a rom similar to yours and install it on my phone to see if, maybe, something is wrong in newer IPL/SPLs.

BTW, which RUU tools are you using? The one i provided in the first post or the one posted by The-Equinoxe in the third page of this thread? If the latter is your case, then try using my RUU.

If anyone out there can provide a different interpretation/explanation of this problem, he's invited to tell us. Thanks!

So we found the problem! 2.26 is problably using some certificate or doing some check that was not present/required in imate rom.

This problem can be solved. You must cook a new extrom containing:

- autorun.exe from the 2.26 rom ('cos it's correctly signed)
- disable_signature_check.cab (to install for first to disable the certificate signature check on subsequent cabs)
- cabs taken from the extrom you like (i.e. imate's one)
- config.txt file, edited accordingly to the cabs you want to install

If you send me the extrom you'd like to install (the imate one) i can try cooking a extrom for you (in case you don't know how to do). Let me know. bye
