    Welcome mahut - not a good post with which to lose your virginity! This precisely why I am hanging back a little and not, as usual, just blindly upgrading.

    Have you tried a hard reset (page up and reset)? That should restore your Palm to factory defaults (and wipe everything, which won't matter as it seems this update does that anyway).

    Welcome to Brighthand, Mahut.

    A hard reset is actually pressing the reset hole in the back of the unit whilst holding down the power button for the duration of the first reset screen. Then press 'up' on your directional pad to confirm.

    Default Is G1 reinstall needed?

    Before I install the T5 1.1 update, I'm assuming that I will need to reinstall the G1 file(s) after the update. Is this true? I'm not a true fan of Grafitti 2 and want G1, instead. Has anyone done this yet?

    Yep, the find bug is gone. So is the calendar-showing-no-dates-in-find-results bug and all the NVFS issues have been fixed. Also, the overall system performance seems much, much snappier.

    Wow, that was fun.

    When attempting to HotSync the update, I would get a Fatal Exception everytime the T5 was attempting to load one of the ROM update files.

    A series of soft resets did nothing. Nor did a few warm resets.

    Renamed my Backup folder, and did a hard reset.

    Reinstalled the ROM update via HotSync and..... waited, waited, waited.

    Finally, ROM update installed.

    Renamed old Backup folder to current and initiated HotSync.... waited, waited, waited..... none of my old settings/applications came over. Great. Must've done something wrong.

    Went into my Archive folder and reinstalled EVERYTHING! Waited, waited, waited, waited..... waited some more..... and, got everything over, but needed to re-setup every piece of software (reg codes, preferences, settings, etc.) GREAT!

    Well, that's two hours of my life I'm never going to get back! At least things are back to normal (sort of).

    I don't even know yet if the headaches the update caused are worth the update itself. Time will tell.

    Thanks, Palm, I think!

    My heart's in me mouth. I've synced everything, backed up everything, removed the card and am currently updating.

    [Edit]

    And I've got the fatal exception whilst validating the new files after the in-cradle soft reset.

    [Edit]

    After sticking the needle in its back it came back and continued validating. It's just completed that and is going through another soft reset (which seems quicker, but that's maybe because I'm typing here). Now wants me to calibrate.

    [Edit]

    Then another soft reset, followed by country set up, etc. Now syncing back the data.

    [Edit]

    Sync finished. Another (expected) reset required. Info tells me I have Garnet v. 5.4.8.

    I am now hoping that a full restore from BBVFS will give me back all my preferences. I'll try that on the train home. (A niggling part of me thinks a full restore - if it works - will put me back pre-update.)
