Hi,

I didn't see any post about using MTTY on Kaiser.

If I did a bad ROM flash with my previous device (HTC Universal), I could always fix this by clearing the FAT table with MTTY.


Believe me... if you flash and it stops ad 85% you will be very happy if you can use this tool!



Reason I started this thread is to help out people who are having such a problem with there Kaiser!


This is the correct procedure to get you out of trouble



1. Stop ActiveSync, by Task Manager (press Ctrl + Alt + Delete)
kill two processes rapimgr.exe and wcescomm.exe

2. put your device into the cradle

3. Run mtty and Choose WCEUSBSH001 in 'PORT' (if it doesn't show then you didn't stop all active sync processes above!)

4. type "set 16 0" without the quotes to tell bootloader to boot the OS after reset. (for some devices it can also be "set 14 0")

5. type "task 8" to get your device formatted

6. type "task 0" to ask your device reboot

7. take the device out of the cradle, and manually reset it if it does not do that already.




Incase of an emergency it could be very helpfull I think!



Thank you all for providing the input in this thread so I could make this small user manual!


Happy flashing!


Leo

You supply a ROM that people can use to Brick thier devices (if they don't Hard SPL).

I suppose that's why they invented Big Red Font's and disclaimers.

If you do decide to post it, I'd get _Alex_ or Mike to add it to the Sticky.

P.S. I have yet to expirence it myself.

If you have a bad flash....that's no reason to worry.

I haven't had to use MTTY to recover.

In most cases, if there's no issues with the Rom itself...you can pop out the battery and re-flash the same ROM from BootLoader Mode. This will also work if for some reason your computer crashes or loses power & restart during the FLASH.

If the Rom has issues.....the flash will not complete and the device will be stuck in BootLoader Mode. At this point,you must FLASH a FACTORY ROM!!
Pop the battery off 1st, power up the device, device will power up in BootLoader Mode, connect to pc & FLASH your devices FACTORY ROM. This will restore your device back to it's original out the box settings.

The above only works if the device has been put through the Hard SPL or SuperCID process.

I personally have never tried to flash a cooked ROM without unlocking any of my devices. From what I've read what others have experienced...the flash would just fail and they're stuck in BootLoader Mode.

Myself ... I've experienced bad flashes, bad cooked roms that I've cooked, lost power to a pc & had my pc crash during a flash. Listed above is how I've recovered. There is life after Bootloader Mode.

The only time you have to worry is if your device does not power up at all

As a public chef...it's your responsibility to set the parameters of your ROM! Meaning, Radio, HardSPL, program conflicts, etc.

You are not ultimately responsible if someone bricks their phone but if they pushed the issue, you could be hit with some form of liabilty because you failed on providing a simple Disclaimer that sets the expectation.

I hope I've been helpful.....
