Attached you find all you need to flash cooked ROMs on your Ozone (Cedar).

The sspl/hardspl are confirmed to work fine on the HTC Cedar platform (Ozone).

It will not work on the HTC Maple platform (Dash3G). Running this sspl on a Dash3G will definitely brick it. Also the HTC Willow platform (SNAP S511, Sprint) is not supported. For the Dash3G I have already developed a sspl/hardspl. Users of the S511 have to wait until I feel motivated ..

The packages contains a SSPL, HardSPL, patched ROM updater and the original Ozone SPL. The package is based on SPL v0.39

Instructions:
1. remove SD and SIM cards (don't forget otherwise the sspl is likely not to work!!)
2. connect your device to your pc with a USB cable and wait until it is synced
3. extract the file "Ozone HardSPL by JockyW.zip" and execute "auto.bat"
4. follow all instructions given on screen: first the sspl is copied to the device and executed. You must confirm running JumpSPL on the device: first time you must click Yes to allow it to run, you also must click the trackball to continue execution of JumpSPL. The device display will turn dark and after that the romupdate tool will install the hardspl on your device. (the identification string in the tri-color bootloader screen is "0.39.Hard")
5. to test the sspl and the hardspl you can flash the attached splash.nbh

Once the HardSPL is installed on your device you can flash any Ozone cooked or original ROM.

Have fun,
JockyW

Um... so most of this worked fine, and the screen is dark, and a generic htc driver got auto installed... and the Rom Utility popped up on my screen... But how do I get it to connect to activesync like this?

After my phone rebooted completely (following the ROM utility completing), I just re-enabled Allow USB connections and it seems to work fine.

No, so the rom update tool doesnt complete because ActiveSync doesnt work after the screen turns black...
Edit: and Im using XP (noticed ur not from the thumbnail...) idk if that matters or anything

I'm having some difficulties of my own. I'm running Windows 7 RC x64 with WMDC 6.1.6965.

I started by running the sspl.bat (with USB enabled in WMDC); the SPL app came up on my device's screen, I tapped ok, and the device screen went black w/ solid black pixels. The only way of rebooting it is yanking the battery. The OS loads fine after that.

Later I thought it had run sucessfully so I ran auto.bat. The JumpSPL steps ran fine (with USB enabled still) but it failed at step 4 when the ROM tried to flash (obv. because USB was still enabled).

Strange thing is, when USB is disabled and I run auto.bat, the device is unable to connect in steps 1-3. I canceled all those steps and then the ROM flasher starts, makes a connection, and starts the flash but won't go past 0%. The screen is still black because after step 3 the SPL flashes (or attempts to.)

I later put the device in bootloader manually (with the colorful bars) and ran the ROM flasher by itself. It runs but again, gets stuck at 0% on both the device and the PC. After a while a 262: update error pops up. This must be because the SPL is still locked? The OS boots fine after a battery pull.

Strange. Any advice would be welcome.

The bootloader is still locked in 0.39.0000, confirmed.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure all my problems are coming from x64 drivers. I'm going to try this again in Windows XP Mode. Congrads everyone who's succesfully flashed! Good work guys!

no, same problems. :sigh:

The bootloader is still locked in 0.39.0000, confirmed.

Instead of replying to yourself, please use the edit button next time. :rolleyes:

Anyways, if you run auto.bat, disable USB Connections after the screen turns black via ActiveSync. In your device manager (with the screen still black) look at your USB Devices. You should see a entry called HTC USB Sync. If you see that continue to flash. Seeing HTC USB Sync is a key step in this whole process.

Please read the testing/development thread for some good solid help. A bunch of us ran into the same issue you did. If you read all 4 pages you should be able to troubleshoot your problem: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=550628

Also guys, we gotta hook up JockyW with some donations. He worked his ASS off to build this and we have to show some gratitude. If you want him to continue to support us, we have to show him some love.
