Well, I've done it again. Had .113 running for a couple of weeks but was afraid to upgrade OS because I was having some issues with Data backups. Finally got a solid data backup yesterday, so I decided it was time to try v5.
Removed the OS that was installed on the PC and ran the Leaked .132 executable, deleted the vendor.xml file, and then instantiated Loader.exe. This process nuked my phone, so I tried to deal with that, finally getting Verizon .75 back on.
Decided to wipe with JL Commander and then try again. Loader failed again. With the phone in the nuked state, and trying to get Loader to perform the upgrade, it reports that there are no additional apps to install. I can't move on.
Downloaded DM v5.0 and installed it. It recognized .141 (note: I always uninstall previous OS version in Add/Remove Programs and then install new OS to PC by running the executable) and almost got through the entire installation. However, the 2nd device init never happened, as DM seemed to lose its conn to the phone. I clicked on the screen and saw that I had App Error 523.
Tried this numerous times with various OS's (.113, .132, .141, and even .75 again). I always get the 523 error, always in DM (note: Loader.exe is not working at all). I wiped again, this time using CrackUtil (CU) and saw the 507 error (reload software). I tried .132 again and got the 523 error.
A quick check of the files on the phone through CU showed the .132 files were on the phone, so I thought I would try to install it again, thinking it would "repair" the OS for me. Nope - 523 error.
So, I'm stuck in this perpetual state of either a 523 app error or wiping and having no OS on the phone. And, Loader.exe is not helping.
Starting to get frustrated. I'm at work, w/o the phone, but I would appreciate any advice. I'll be on later, around 5 PM MST.
