v710 Hack to work with BMW ULF

Contributed by: Chuckkay

V710 Hack to work with BMW ULF



Using the following "hack", the phonebook transfers automatically to the BMW
ULF and it eliminated the  frequent disconnect-reconnect problems.

Here
are the instructions to follow, but first a disclaimer - You are going to be
messing with the phone's operating system parameters and there are risks
associated with doing this.  If you decide to attempt this, do so at your own
risk with the knowledge that if you mess the phone up then you have no recourse
to sue anyone or seek compensation if something goes wrong.


I had to install this on Windows XP in order for the drivers to work
correctly.

Before beginning be sure that you have the following item



1. USB to Motorola phone data cable that is compatible with the v710.
(Check eBay and   DON'T get the future dial cable. These should be $20 or
less.)

2. Windows XP

3. PST 7.11 software (download from http://vzw.inetron.com )

4. the activation disabler
(PST_uni_patch.exe) (download from http://vzw.inetron.com
)

5. new firmware 8700_1.02.SD -
http://vzw.inetron.com/Custom_Images/8700_1.02.SD.zip

 


Before beginning, first make sure the phone is unplugged from the computer.


1) unrar & Install PST 7.11. Let it install ALL the updates for XP.


2) Reboot the computer.


3)Copy PST_uni_patch.exe to C:\Program Files\Motorola\PST Run it. Make sure
it was successful with all 6 operations. Then click finish.


4) Turn on phone and plug it into the usb cable. Windows should detect it.
Point the Driver search wizard to C:\Program Files\Motorola\PST It should now
find the drivers and install the phone as Motorola USB Modem.


5) Now on the start menu in the Motorola PST folder, run the "Flash &
Test Commands" program


6) Windows will now redetect your phone as a USB Composite device, and begin
asking for drivers. Again, point it to C:\Program Files\Motorola\PST. It should
do this a few times to install all the drivers it needs.


7) Now in the Flash & Test program, it should show your phone in the
Devices section. If not, try exiting and then opening the Flash & Test
command program again.


8) If the phone is in the devices section, click browse to select the
firmware from superdave. Now click the flash button.


9) This process will take a few minutes, so don't mess with the phone or
program. Wait till it says the flash has completed. Once it compeltes, check the
"errors" section for any problems.


10) The phone will probably reboot at this point, but just power it off
again. Pull out the battery for 60 seconds. Then plug it back in.


11) Your phone will shows a NO SERVICE message. Not a problem. Type *228 and
the dial button (green button). It should then call up VZW through their
automated activation service. Choose option 1 so it programs the phone
automatically. Wait till it says it is done with the process before powering off
the phone.


12) You should be done now!

Thanks again to superdave, howardforms,
everyone who is hosting these files, and everyone who helped.
