And I run and install all vague .cabs on my device!!

What is this supposed to be and where did you get it. Are you implying this is the fabled HTC fix, yet for some reason HTC have chosen not to release it themselves, but you have leaked it??????

Having just gone thru the SD card failure routine (followed by neccessary total rebuild!!), I'm keen to try anything to fix this "fault" on my O2 Orbit.....However, I'd love to know what this does before implementing the "solution".....
....I think what I'm trying to say is: if this is the solution then what was the definative problem? and what does this solution do?
Hope you can help and I really hope this fixes it...many thanks!

this file is a patch as i said is in the official web page of htc in Greece and it is on the site since 30 minutes

Thanks mastelos,

This file is only on Greece Qtek/HTC forum but there is no information about it on P3300 updates page. Maybe you could find out why? Is this an unofficial or made by Greek programmers patch - not send to HTC headquarter yet?

Cheers,

Downloaded but not installing until I've seen some release details from HTC. I also am not sure if I should remove SDsentry before I install it....

I too have downloaded it but like you, I don't want to run it until either (1) HTC release some details or (2) somebody who has been brave enough to try it confirms that it doesn't do anything malicious.

I can't think of any reason why you would need to remove SDsentry first, though. All this does is put a file called sdsentry.txt in various important directories and then warns as soon as it has any problems reading any of these files (which suggests that the microSD card is corrupted).

Yeh, I just loaded it up. Normally most cab files I install I get some message about unknown publishers etc. Not with this, It looks legitimate to me. I think htc watch this space so we can do an evaluation for them.
One more thing that has really been bugging my orbit has been the soft reset loop, after installing this cab my orbit went through only one cycle, maybe coincidence but that is the first time in months that that has happened.

Update:
Got bit late last night, But this morning orbit is 100% ok, again almost every morning I normally have a slight corruption in program files. Today all is good.
Not sure but I also think that maybe the thing is even reading the card a bit faster than it was.
Just a thought obvious to everyone, but Artemis was a Greek goddess, HTC must like Greece for some reason.

maybe this is the answer.....:)

well isend yesterday an e-mail to htc Greece to explain me if this an official or custom i'm waiting for answer
from my experience i believe this is an official patch because htc Greece never
gave to us a non official rom or anything one year now i use their products

i do not install the file because i do not have the corruption problem and i have 3300 from 27/9/2006 us you can see on my previews posts

i believe that they (htc Greece) recieve the file on friday afternoon and put it immediately on their site and from monday all the htc sites will have the patch

*sorry for bad english
 
I installed the patch last night. Now, almost 24 hours later, and after using my Orbit a lot, I have not had a single warning from SDsentry!

Installing the patch required a reboot. It shows up in the "Remove Programs" menu if you decide you want to get rid of it. So far, I can't see any reason why you would want to remove it.

Looks like Well Done, HTC!

Well after months of never having card corruption, it hit me last night, and as good to form, my backup on the PC was out of date. Thankfully the damage wasn't too bad.

So I've installed this patch, which goes on smoothly, as said above, it is signed so you don't have to agree to install it, and it is listed in remove programs as "HTC Patch DrvUpdate".

Theres no instant way of testing it I guess, as I had to wait months for my first corruption anyway.
