Steps

1. Download file (about 82 mbs)

2. Disable USB connect from Active Sync. (File, Connection Settings, Uncheck Allow USB connection)

3. Install Modem Drivers from original CD

4. Turn off BJ

5. Run Installer File

6. While phone is off, plug into computer via USB

7. Turn on phone using reflashing mode (hold down right soft key, camera side key and then hold down power button)

8. Installer file will detect phone and hit start.

have fun

Check out this page and go to step 6. This is the Samsung site that has the official method for reflashing a Blackjack.

HTH,

WILL REFLASHING THE PHONE VOID THE WARRANTY?

From what I understand, if you flash it with a non-approved version, it will void the warranty. Someone else may have a better answer, or know more about it.

Well I also downloaded and instaled windows mobile 6 from this link yesterday. A few things about it though that I was not to happy about. The new windows mobile interface is beautiful and smooth. I think the best part about this version is that it comes with mobile office which is a huge bonus for us blackjack user, since we only have the ability to view excell, word, and powerpoint docs with the 3rd party piscle program.

Wow, this is interesting. I just upgraded my Blackjack with a version for AT&T, but I'm using it on an unlocked phone on O2 in the UK. I have experience no issues with reception, speed, etc. In fact, I'd say it's faster. When I first got the phone I was roaming in the US on Cingular and T-mobile to O2. I had all kinds of problems with GPRS connectivity. There is a ROM flash that supposed to fix this, but I skipped it and went straight to WM6 in hopes of fixing that too. Since I'm not in the US I can't test it to determine if it solved that problem.

I bought the WM6 upgrade from eBay ($6). It lacked adequate directions, but got them off the Samsung site thanks to a link here. There are a number of steps, but if you follow them carefully, n...

Internally at&t has a version they are testing. I downloaded it and have been using it for a couple of weeks. I too have noticed the reception weakened greatly. I live in an Edge area and have not tested this in a 3g market yet.
