How to Install 3.2x.Hard SPL:
1. Plug the device into your PC
2. Copy Jump/Soft to your device. use JumpSPL If you have the "White Screen" issue, if you don't, you can use SSPL-KAIS.exe.
3. Take out your SD card & SIM Card.
4. Run Jump/Soft SPL on your device
5. Wait for the bootloader screen to appear and "USB" to show.
6. Right-click activesync, go into connection settings and ensure Allow USB Connections is unchecked
7. Unplug your device from the USB port, wait 5 - 20 seconds, plug it back in.
8. Run KaiserCustomRUU.exe and flash the SPL
If you have problems with the above process, try this:
1a. download the attached files
1b. pull out the battery and reinsert it (this step *is* important)
1c. connect your PC to phone with a USB cable
2. REMOVE SIM and SD CARDS !!
3. copy JumpSPL1.56-KAIS.exe to your device and run it (make sure the USB cable is still connected). If you still get a white screen then reset your device and now try JumpSPL1.93-KAIS.exe or JumpSPL1.94-KAIS.exe
4. after a few seconds "USB" appears on the phone display
5. unplug and replug the usb cable
6. deselect "Allow USB connections" in Activesync connection settings
7. now flash hardSPL (run KaiserCustomRUU.exe from flash-hardSPL.zip on your PC)
With the JumpSPL you should *not* flash radio roms, OS roms or full roms. The JumpSPL is only needed to flash a HardSPL (or SPL)
FOR ANYONE WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT THIS IS FOR, WHY YOU WOULD NEED IT, OR HOW TO PERFORM SPL PROCEDURES: Read This Wiki page
Q: Can I use with with Wizard/Hermes/"Insert other device here"?
A: No, this is only for Kaiser/TyTN2/Tilts.
Q: Do I have to use Jump/Soft SPL?
Q: Do I have to install HardSPL v1.x before installing HardSPL 3.x?
A: No, you can follow this process to install HardSPL 3.x on a factory device without ever installing HardSPL 1.x.
Q: Will I have to reflash my OS/Radio or set-up my software again after flashing this?
A: No, changing SPL doesn't touch either the Radio or OS.
Q: Do I have to use this BEFORE I flash a WM 6.1 Rom?
A: Not really, you can flash it before or after upgrading the OS/Radio to WM 6.1 but you may experience "Screen-Freeze" until you upgrade your HardSPL.
Q: Since this is SPL for HTC Branded Devices will it work with AT&T's Tilt?
Q: Does this SPL support AT Command Mode?
Q: Does the 3.2x HardSPL support "Task 2a" via MTTY?
A: No, HTC took it out.
Q: What is the difference between this & HardSPL v1.x?
A: HardSPL 3.x should be used with WM 6.1 Roms, HardSPL 1.x should be used with WM 6.0 Roms. Both HardSPL prevent you from accidently flashing a new SPL (you must use Jump/Soft SPL for this) and SuperCID your phone.
Q: What is the difference between 3.28 & 3.29 SPL?
A: Just speculation at the moment but there appears to be a minor change, possibly a hotfix. Both SPLs seem to work fine with all models & WM 6.1 Roms but 3.29 is included in the AT&T Rom and a few of the HTC Roms.
Q: Should I install 3.28 or 3.29?
A: Honestly it probably makes little difference but you can always check the SPL that shipped with the rom (or BaseRom if using a cooked Rom) you are running. I have AT&T Tilt running my Rom (using AT&T 3.51 Base) with 3.28 and have no problems including screen-freeze. Note: some members recommend 3.28 for HTC Roms & 3.29 for AT&T Roms.
Q: Does this HardSPL fix the "Screen-Freeze" in WM 6.1 Roms.
A: Yes, everyone using the new HardSPLs has reported it resolved the issue.
Q: What about WM 6.0 Roms?
A: Some users have reported having the "Screen-Freeze" issue on WM 6.0 Roms and fixing it with the New HardSPL. It's worth a try but definately recommended to use the same generation SPL & ROM in most cases.
Q: What about "Diamond" Roms?
A: As the Diamond Ports are WM 6.1 Roms and the SPL has the same effect, eliminates "Screen-Freeze".
Q: What was the cause of the freezings with the older hard-spl and what did you do to fix this
A: SPL initializes a lot of subsystems (power management, touch screen, lcd, etc). The newer SPL probably has contidional code that would handle variations in hardware (if they exist). I'd also think that the 3rd gen SPL would be geared more towards the 3rd gen OS & Radio needs which would explain the fix working as well as it does. Reminds me of the Wizards days when we were running 2nd & 3rd gen OS but had to stick to lower radios because we were intentionally not upgrading SPL (due to HTC Locks & such in the 2nd gen SPL).
Q: Can I flash this via SDCard?
A: Technically, you should be able to BUT flashing SPL is a "dangerous" process for your phone so you really should use KaiserCustomRUU.
Q: Where can I get Jump/Soft SPL?
Q: I can't flash a cooked Rom after installing 3.x.Hard SPL, help.
A: See the next question, if you didn't successfully change to SPL03.2x.Hard then try again.
Q: How can I be sure that I've successfully changed to SPL-3.x.Hard?
A: Get into your Bootloader (hold down camera+power buttons while inserting stylus for approximately 3-5 seconds). It should show SPL-3.28.Hard or SPL-3.29.Hard on the second line of text on your screen. If not then you didn't flash the new HardSPL, try again.
Q: Using Jump/Soft SPL shows "unknown device" when hooked up to usb.
A: Try the SSPL attached to the first post.
Q: Could you clarify what the "Force USB" does?
A: Some users managed to nuke configuration parameters which determine the default connection mode. They are stuck in serial mode. The "force usb" version of SPL corrects this. Of course it would be better to figure out which parameter(s) are at fault and correct these, but that would take time and experiments and more over a higher risk to really brick a device.
Q: I'm stuck in the Bootloader (Tri-Color) Screen with "ruunbh" text in the upper right corner.
A: To get rid of the RUNNBH error:
Download an ORIGINAL (not cooked ROM) for your device from here: http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index...me=Kaiser_ROMs
Choose one appropriate for your device (AT&T tilt / HTC TyTnII). 6.0 or 6.1 shouldn't matter.
Download that and flash it...it should work and get you back to a working phone. Then you will have to try the HardSPL procedure again.
Q: Does this "Security Unlock" my Phone?
A: No, Security Unlocked is something different from HardSPL.
Check here on how to do a security unlock: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=361236
Here are the files that you will need to do the process:
Just follow the steps in the supercid. I have included the .txt file that Jockyw2001 included.
Be sure to flash the "SPL-1.1.JockyW" as the process won't work while SPL-3.2x.Hard is installed.
Q: Where did my post in this thread go?
A: All useful information was consilidated into this single post. Everything else was deleted.
When all else fails, try these...
Use a Windows XP Machine (not VISTA).
Delete all USB peripherals and root hubs from Device Manager, reboot, let everything be re-detected, reboot again and then plug your Tilt in again.
Make sure you have removed both the SDCard and your SIM Card.
