Posted - 04/22/2011 : 13:45:33 Just got my Pharos 600e and according to the info on the website, I can update to WinMobile 6.5 by downloading Flash.bin and following these instructions: ---- Quote ----- Copy the new OS, Flash.bin, to a micro SD card - Reset the 600 while hold down Power, Camera, and Voice recording button simultaneously - OS update will start. Pharos 600 will display the following messages: • Find SDMMC Card • File = FLASH BIN • Program Image from SDMMC • Update OS image • Please Wait - It takes about 10 minutes to load OS and refresh Pharos 600#700;s ROM ---- End Quote ----
The problem is, no matter what I do, I can't hold down 3 buttons and push reset at the same time. Even when I got someone else to help me, the device just resets without any hint of attempting the OS update as documented.
Is there a "trick" to this? Has anyone done this before?
TIA for any help/info! DH

You need to have the 3 buttons held during the boot sequence.
That means press and hold the 3 buttons, push the reset and keep holding the 3 buttons until you see something on the screen. good luck, you'll need it.
