7. Now find a file named Upgrade.bat,and run it.(you don’t have to run Step1 of PdaMobiz or PDAViet Temp,as you have already downgraded to AKU2.2)
8. Wait until the upgrade finishes(usually takes 12-15minutes)..WAIT WAIT WAIT
9. A message will be displayed in the dos box,and it will say that the upgrade is finished etc….etc…,now you HAVE to HARD RESET,to finish the upgrade and enjoy you new WM6!

NOTICE
If you use a different AKU 2.2 ROM(like PDAViet Temp),you may have two EXEs in the folder you extracted.Be careful and use the one that is made for your device:
FILENAME G3.EXE
is for G3 devices:IPL x.xx.0000, SPL x.xx.000.0 (this is shown when you reset)

FILENAME G4.EXE
is for G4 devices:IPL x.xx.0001, SPL x.xx.000.1 (this is shown when you reset)

RECOVERING FROM ERROR IN STEP 8 WM5->WM6
1. Don’t panic
2. Don’t panic
3. Unplug the phone
4. Reset with stylus,and keep the Camera Button pressed.
5. A 3 color screen will appear(Bootloader Screen)
6. Connect your device with your PC,and run the NVID(no vendor) WM5 rom.
7. The device will be resetted after RUU(rom update utility)finishes
8. Repeat the WM6 upgrade,from STEP 5..

How to switch or upgrade/downgrade between WM6 versions(for example PDAViet->Trueneytral)
1. First you have to downgrade to WM5 AKU2.2 using the WM6->WM5 guide(some say that you don’t have to do that,but i believe that it’s better to downgrade first rather than making a simple overwrite)
2. Now follow STEP 5 of the WM5->WM6 guide

Device doesn’t connect to PC after flash
If your device doesn’t connect to your PC after flash,just enter bootloader(press camera button+while pressing soft reset and hold,until a tri-color screen shows up),and flash the NoVendor WM5 Rom: http://rapidshare.com/files/17208693…24721_NVID.exe .Then repeat the whole process…

KEEP IN MIND:

UPGRADING CAN BE DANGEROUS,YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE

DO NOT RESTORE BACKUPS FROM ANY ROM OTHER THAN THE ONE IT WAS CREATED ON

THERE IS NO “BEST WM6 ROM”,THE BEST IS THE ONE THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU

(part of the guide is taken from Da9L‘s guide,in the WM6 Rom Collection)
