Okay first thing first, things you will need:
- A MPx220 of course :D
- A USB Data CAble
- Motorola Offline Updater
- Rom File that you want
Okay, to get the Motorola Offline Updater, go to Surreal Networks
And click on Register Now (pointed out in the picture above) and well, register!
Okay, after you do that, and
are signed in and everything, go to the home page (http://www.surrealnetworks.com
,) click downloads at the top,
then to main directory,
scroll down until you see MPx220 and click on ROM updates,
Go to page two of the ROM updates section and click "MPx220 Offline Updater v1.8.5"
as in the picture below,
then click on the green button (
After that I'm sure you know what to do. Well, as installing the actual program goes.
Next part is to: Install the driver called Smartfon.inf it can be found here Download the file, extract the file, remove the battery from your phone, plug the
phone (with no battery into the computer with your USB data cable, when a yellow bubble (or 2) pops up saying new ______ found,
you can ignore it and the screen below will show up. Then follow picture instructions below: 1.2.3. 4.5.6. 7.8. NOW... REMOVE THE USB CABLE FROM PHONE AND COMPUTER!
Okay... now you have to choose which ROM you want. There are several types: Asian
- what I prefer, NOT FOR N00Bs/Newbies, includes WMP10, MUST DO TWEAKING Generic
- just a normal US ROM that is unbranded Cingular/AT&T
- Like generic ROMs
but include pre-set settings for Cingular MEdia Net/AT&T Mmode
You can find ROMs at Surreal Networks
you do the same thing as before but install a ROM instead of update tool. This should be easy to do.
you download the ROM you want, unzip it.
MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE THIS FILE IS ---
I RECCOMEND PUTTING IT IN A FOLDER
ON YOUR DESKTOP
Now go here
(http://www.box.net/public/dahq78pt2k) and download "Motorola Update Screenshots.zip" and unzip that.
I will give
instructions according to the step of each screenshot NOT AS THE ACTUAL STEPs ON THE UPDATE TOOL
Here we go:
1 - Is the warning. READ THIS! DO NOT
REMOVE YOUR DATA CABLE DURING THE PROCESS OF
UPDATING YOUR ROM!!!!!!!!
<Step 1 - double click on the icon
Step 2 - just press next
3 - make sure the device listed says MPx220 and press next
Step 4 - AGAIN
MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS OUT OF THE PHONE DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR USB CABLE
Step 5 - Click Browse
Step 6 -Find the folder
your ROM file is saved in
Step 7 - If there is a "sub-folder" open it
Step 8 - double click on the .mlf file that is shown in the window (DOES NOT MEAN IT IS
THE SAME AS IN SCREENSHOT)
Step 9 - Make sure it says the correct ROM version
on this screen, if it doesn't re download the correct ROM that you want and start over, and press next
Step 10 - When this screen pops up YOU CAN PLUG IN THE USB CABLE... ACTUALLY... YOU HAVE TO :D
and press OK
Step 11 - WAIT...WAIT...WAIT some more.... this can take up 15
minutes AT THE MOST it really doesn't take too long
Step 12 - When this screen
comes up, YOU'RE DONE
Now unplug your phone and insert your battery, when you turn it on it will have a black
screen saying "formatting!" DON'T WORRY! It is supposed to be there!
If you installed an Asian ROM, go here.
