    Upgrading from a Tungsten E

    I appear to be having the dreaded digitizer problem with my new TX. I followed all the steps in the initial post on this thread. After installing Uninstaller, Cleanup and FileZ, I installed programs one at a time using the Sandbox in Uninstaller. After installing 2 programs and running them successfully, the digitizer appears to have frozen. I did a soft reset but the digitizer basically remains unresponsive. Is this likely to be a digitizer problem or a conflict with one of the two programs that I installed?

    Hello ted13, Welcome in case nobody told you before ;)

    Did you already try with a clean device, i.e. no SW installed ?
    If that solves the issue, you have a SW conflict.
    What are the programs you have installed so far ?

    Yes, I did start with a clean device. I installed Uninstaller and Cleanup (Neatfeak Pack), FileZ, Pocket Quicken, Splash ID. These programs were all running normally before the digitizer problems arose. I am gong to do a hard reset and start over to see if this will solve the problem.

    I did a hard reset and everything is back to normal. Is there anyway to determine which program caused the conflict?

    Simple: install one by one, try after each program.

    Thanks for the advice Holvoetn. I have reinstalled the two programs (one at time) and the TX seems to be stable. I am also backing up with NV backup after each stable install. If I get a program that causes problems and restore a stable backup, will I have to delete the files from the backup folder on the desktop? It seems to me that the troublesome app files would restore from the backup if they weren't removed.

    For safety, yes, it is better to clean the backup folder when that happens.

    Greetings.

    About to shift from an almost-dead 650 to a TX (don't need the phone app anymore).

    In the instructions at the top of the thread, number 4 says, among other things, "Install the new Palm Desktop," presumably the one that comes with the TX. Is this necessary? Running Desktop 4.1.4 now -- I don't think there's been an upgrade. What will happen if I just plug the TX into the USB port and hit "sync?"

    The TX runs 4.2. It is not exactly the same as 4.1.4.
