    YES you can with an "un-official" version...

    All you need is a 64 MB SD card - preferred method.

    But rather than describe it in detail here, take a look at this forum here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/front_page.php

    and this thread here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/viewtopic.php?t=2189&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

    Be sure to read everything through, check, re-check and you should have no problems.

    BTW - T-Mo and ATT are just about to release the "official" versions - should be out by the end of Feb - maybe sooner.

    I am currently running the latest XDA-I "un-official" version w/o problems...

    Hi,

    I visited www.yorch.net and 'cooked' my own ROM made it into an exe and have it downloaded right here it's a 4.05.00 rom flash but I have to ask what software can I use to flash the unit with because I do not have an SD card so I am stuck using my Pc to do the flash, I have the official backup files for my ppc from 02's site so I am ok I guess if all else fails i will flash back to what I am currently using.

    I wanted to flash the rom onto my ppc however what software can I use? I tried Microsofts Sync software I have 3.7 but it doesnt allow me to flash as it gives me an error message.

    Message says:

    "Your Device Information;

    PW10A1:001
    3.20
    English

    Your upgraded image info;

    PW10A1:007
    3.16
    English

    Please download the compatible utility and try again"

    Any help would seriously be appreciated, i mean if we dont help one another what will be the future of this all?

    Regards
    A7MAD

    THE best & safest way to update ROMs on the XDA is by using a SD card.

    I highly suggest you get one - a 64 Mb can be had for a lot less than you think...

    The problem isnt where the files are stored the problem is I cant flash backwards as I showed in my above post...

    So wether its on a SD card or on my PC doesnt really make a different becuase I have 3.20 and that is 3.16 even though I changed the string.. Thus I cant flash my ppc with wm2003 cooked ROM.

    Thats what I need help with if I want it to work for me.

    Regards
