The i760 is no more…

Posted by onlydarksets on July 22, 2008

I just got back from selling my i760. I have officially left the realm of Windows Mobile (ok, not really – I still have my old Moto Q, but I no longer have a Verizon account). The 6.1 upgrade seemed nice, too, although I did not really play with out much.

Onwards and upwards!

Finding the MAC on the i760 (redux)

Posted by onlydarksets on July 22, 2008

I had previously posted how to find the MAC address on the i760 running WM6.  With the official release of WM 6.1, the code has changed.  You now need to enter #43574357*.

Windows Mobile 6.1 for Samsung i760

Posted by onlydarksets on July 14, 2008

Update: It’s now officially official.

It’s now (semi?) official – you can upgrade your i760 to WM 6.1.  I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll give it a go tomorrow.  You can find the directions on Samsung’s website.  Here are direct links to the updater.

It sounds like you need to use the original cable (i.e., don’t use a sync/charge cable) and plug it DIRECTLY into the PC (i.e., not into a hub).

Also, there might be an issue with setting up Gmail, although there is a workaround:

Some of the benefits:

  • No SDHC hack necessary for >2GB microSD cards (apparently supports up to 8GB)
  • WM6.1 apps (e.g., threaded SMS, zooming PIE, Youtube support)
  • Battery life and speed optimizations

Getting SDHC to work

Posted by onlydarksets on December 26, 2007

UPDATE: Now it’s clear that the card is bad.  Off to BB (again!).

UPDATE: Looks like it’s the card reader, too. Ugh – off to BB in the morning.

I got a 4GB microSDHC card for my i760 for Christmas, and getting it working has been a bit of a pain. First, you need a hacked driver to get it working on the i760. However, you also need a hotfix to get it working in Windows XP! To make it worse, MS won’t just “give” you the hotfix – you have to request it. However, there is an alternative! See below…

Screen protectors (personal experience)

Posted by onlydarksets on November 28, 2007

Following up on this post, I purchased the Pocket Solutions HD Screen Protectors.  They are not the crystal clear kind, but, rather the anti-glare kind.

The first set I received was not cut properly.  After my second support request (the first received no response), Pocket Solutions sent me a replacement set at no cost.  These fit better, but there is about a 1/32″ gap on one side.  I’m not sure anything can be done about that, though, since the screen on the i760 is recessed.

It has worked well so far – no smudges, fairly readable outdoors, and no scratches.

Accessories for i760

Posted by onlydarksets on October 24, 2007

Pocket Solution has the first offering I’ve seen for a sync/charge cable.  Of course, it’s just a ZX20 cable
