Did this cab actually work for anyone?

Thanks guys! (Why couldn't M$ make the cab for us???)
I first tried to install the official Microsoft cab that they were nice enough to notify me about, but it wouldn't even install.
Then I installed DST2007.cab - it installed fine.
However, Sunday I woke and eagerly checked my 8125, and NO CHANGE HAD OCCURRED.
So I set the time manually, and then my alarms were all off.
Did this cab work for anyone?
Edit: Just went to edgeblog,
and found this post: "Once you apply the patch, you must manually change your timezone to something else and click apply. After that, change it back to your correct time zone. This forces the phone to re-read the registry file. I tested this on my Blackjack and it worked perfect. The phone changed the time correctly at 03/11/2007 2:00AM to 3:00AM and gave me a dialog box telling me it had adjusted for DST."
So, I have re-installed the cab and done the above, and soft-reset, and now when I do SP TimeSync I don't have the hour difference anymore that I was getting.
Moral of the story: Not just read the posts, but follow the links and read, rinse and repeat.
