WARNING

IF YOU USE THIS, YOU MAY TOAST YOUR PHONE. THERE'S NO COMEBACK. THERE'S NO GETTING ROUND THIS. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST OTHERWISE YOU'LL PROBABLY BREAK YOUR PHONE PERMANENTLY. THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

Instructions for upgrading your ROM to version 1.42.00

NOTE: All 1.42 Roms contain the Radio 1.13.00 (latest is 1.15.00) and Bluetooth (1.0.0.3900) updates. NOTE: Old version can be found here How to upgrade to the 1.40 ROM

At this point, there is 2 1.42.00 English Rom available:

Download the upgrade you want from the following links:


Check the contents of each Extended Rom In the Kitchen

There is 1 other 1.42 ROMs from anyone

NOTE: If you own a device that corresponds with one of the upgrades above, it is preferable you install that update. Otherwise, it is recommended you install the T-Mobile Rom as its Extended Rom seems to be the most up-to-date.

When you have chosen which upgrade to install, if it matches your device, follow these instructions:

  1. Download update to desktop
  2. Unrar or unzip all files in exe or rar into a new folder
  3. Open the folder with the extracted files
  4. Soft reset your PDA
  5. Replace PDA in cradle
  6. Make sure ActiveSync is working
  7. Double-click BaUpgradeUt in the folder with the upgrade files
  8. Follow the instructions on your screen
  9. Hard reset your PDA

The new ROM is now installed on your device

However, if you are installing a rom on a device other than that which it is meant for, you will get a Device ID error, so follow these steps:

First Method (Quick/Easy) (TYPE II)

  1. Download update to desktop
  2. Unrar or unzip all files in exe or rar into a new folder
  3. Open the folder with the extracted files
  4. Download this file: MaUpgradeUt_noID.ZIP
  5. Extract MaUpgradeUt_noID.exe from this file and place it with the other upgrade files.
  6. Run this new exe file instead of BaUpgradeUt.exe to update your rom
  7. If you get an error the first time, run MaUpgradeUt_noID.exe again without touching your device (don't take it out from the cradle, don't reset it, don't touch it at all!)
  8. If you get the same error kill from Task Manager these two process: wcescomm.exe and rapimgr.exe and then retry running MaUpgradeUt_noID.exe
  9. If the seems to hang forever the "Getting the information...", put your device into Bootloader mode by pressing and hold the "Power" & "Record" buttons, and then press the Reset Button. and run the MaUpgradeUt_noID.exe again

Known issues with 1.42:

  1. The camera brightness issue is still there.
  2. Low sound volume on outgoing calls
  3. VPN over WiFi can disconnect after second fix
