Flashing the ppt8846 (6key)

There have been releases of the symbol ppt8846, where the wireless part cannot be configured from within the Philipocket application. The only way to get the ppt8846 working is to reinstall the OS with another (earlier) release. This can only be done with a serial craddle and will take approx 1 hour per device.

First install the device configuration program (DCP8800c42-1.00.02.exe) -> follow on screen instructions.

- Close Active sync and make sure the process wcescomm.exe is not running.
- Set The pocket in “IPL MODE”, and place the pocket into the craddle.

1. Perform a Hard Rest
2. Enter IPL mode
- Set the baud rate to 115.000
- choose which hex file is to be downloaded
- Run de TCM program , click on the Button.
- Choose the com port which is connected to the craddle (Active sync is NOT used)
- Choose the file you want to flash
- And press download
- Repeat this for all hex files.

You can best flash the hex files in this order

1.Partition tablePPT88xxPtbl_086.hex
2.Splash screensplash.hex
3.Application partitionPPT88xxApp_086.hex
4.Platform partition8846PLat_086_3A31.hex

Flashing the ppt8846 (6key) PPC42

Recently we've adapted our software to work with the PPC version of the ppt8846. The way how to flash the pocket is exactly the same as above.

The button F1 is at the same place and is changed with a CALENDER icon. The Button F4 is also at the same place but is changed with the RECORD icon.

The hex images are also different

1.Partition table88XXw_PTbl010.hex
2.Splash screenSplash_PPC42_ETC
3.Application partition ETC customApplication_PPC42_ETC.hex
4.Platform partition8846w_plat033.hex
5.Operation system88xxw_os010230M.hex

Only the application partition should be flashed because:
- no welcome screen after hard reset
- Clean desktop
- file explorer and wlan profiles are directly accesible from the menu
- wireless registry hacks
- Internet explorer already setup

The splash screen is advised to flash. This will indicate that this is a device that is already flashed.

The other partition's are only supplied just in case. The original application partition is also included.
