Excellent
This is just too much good news in one day.

Will order the HTC Shift today as this is what we needed to know.

We see the HTC shift as the killer device for our software PocketReperion and
now we see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Will post a special WM6 Shift version of PocketReperion soon.

Hi Blueangel69
In the very first post, pof mentioned that you have to download rapi tools (itsutils) from itsme.
>>To dump Shift's CE ROM use itsutils from itsme:

You will see pdocread.exe in that zip file.

Trying to dump my rom with itsutils but keep getting the message:
"could not update itsutils.dll to the current version, maybe it is in use? try restarting your device, or restarting active sync, or maybe your device is application locked".
I tried different versions of itsutils, delete itsutils.dll from windows directory in WM and try again but still getting the same message. Any ideas?????
My Shift is not hardSPL (maybe thats the problem?)


Edit: I hardSPL my sift and still getting the same message. I even tried 'pput itsutils.dll \Windows'. Any ideas?????

Install EnableRAPI.cab on your shift. Search for it, has been posted many times here.
