    Rom update via memory card?

    Alright so I got the infamous 'clearing data hanging at verizon logo' error on my I760. The phone will not connect or sync with my computer. The only other option is to do a rom update via memory card.

    I know this is possible with almost all PDA devices. The rom update image file must be named something specific so that when you boot the device into boot loader/rom update, the image will self install.

    Does anybody know what the file name must be? What about rom update images, does anybody have them?

    never seen a ROM update that can be done from a mem card on the i760... just through a USB connection from a Windows PC

    this thread is from 2009 after the wm6.1 was made available.

    i'm somewhat confused on what is the maximum space in a storage card the i760 can handle.

    i've used the search function and found an sd hack that allows this phone to see a 4gb card.

    in another thread it states that wm6.1 on the i760 allows for an 8gb memory card.

    i'm getting ready to purchase one and would like to know that answer.

    The 4GB hack was for WM6 - once we went to 6.1 4GB was immediately working.

    I do believe some have used 8GB cards, but I have no personal experience with this. If you can find the thread try to get the same model/type to make sure its compatible.

    Maybe someone here using an 8GB card could recommend a manufacturer/model.

    the thread i was researching didn't identify which card. i will do an "sd card" search for it.

    I am no longer an i760 user, but when I was I was using a Sansdisk 16GB micro SDHC without any issues under 6.1.

    I'm using a 16Gb MicroSD in mine(WinMo 6.1 Pro), never had to do any hacks or anything it always picks it up right away with every hard reset I do theres the storage card ready to be used. So no problems here at all, plus I think 16Gb MicroSD's have gotten pretty cheap now.

    I'll try to remember to come back at the end of the week and report my success on the 32Gb MicroSD I ordered saturday... I lucked out in eBay and got one for 50 bucks.

    LoL! Here's to good luck and crossing my fingers to hoping it works.
