Finally it became available, the long awaited MSN fix for your PPCW.Net i-Mate Smartphone.

Like before, it's a complete ROM update you have to download to your PC first and you need to flash your i-Mate Smartphone with it. Please note that this will erase all your settings so make sure you have backed-up your data first.

Also don't wonder if you get the same ROM version like before (; that's the most stable for the i-Mate Smartphone but also includes the MSN Messenger fix now which lets you use your MSN Messenger on your Smartphone again! :-)

Welcome to the InstallShield Wizard for CDL i-Mate Smartphone software update, v1.50.8.6 with MSN fix

Before your upgrade your i-Mate Smartphone please see the checklist first:

  • Download the ZIP file to your PC
  • Open and extract the file to any location on your PC
  • Connect your PPCW.Net i-Mate Smartphone with your PC via ActiveSync
    • Make sure to use the USB port on your PC - don't use any USB hubs in between
    • Make sure your Smartphone is connected to the power source
  • Now run the previously extracted
  • Don't touch your Smartphone or PC during the upgrade

First your previous ROM will be erased from the device:

This might takes a couple of minutes, please stay patient. If the ROM was erased successfully the new ROM image will be copied back to your Smartphone:

That's it - your PPCW.Net i-Mate Smartphone is updated with the latest available ROM:

After you've removed the battery and switched the phone on, it takes a while to boot. That's normal. Also please don't touch the phone during the IPSM check until it asks for a reboot.

But now - finally - you are ready to use MSN Messenger on the road again! :-)

Important Notice: This ROM update was designed for the i-Mate Smartphone with Windows Powered 2002 Operating System. It might work on other Smartphones as well but neither I nor anybody else is responsible for any damages if you try to install this ROM update on devices, other then the i-Mate Smartphone 2002!

Update: The previous reported problems with the update are solved now. I've tried it on 2 different Smartphones 4 times and it worked without any problems!

Cheers ~ Arne
