I was the OP of the C&P from HoFo in the previous post by Kocoman.

This problem with passthru mode led me to eventually find a way to configure the 700w/wx without any cable/computer. My method is based on Kocoman's PalmOS method on the 700p, and credit definately goes to him for pioneering this type of hack on the Treos. We're all fortunate that Palm has made such a powerful utilty for both PalmOS and Windows Mobile, and made it publicly available by packaging it into the firmware updates available on their website.

There has been a lot of discussion on this over at the Cricket forum on howardforums.com. You can even find clear and concise writeups, useful for those wishing to use their Treo with a different carrier, but not wanting to spend time/money getting a specialized serial data cable. When I started reprogramming Windows Mobile Treos to Cricket with 1x data 9 months ago, it was a common fact that a serial data cable was *absolutely required*, in order to change the Mobile IP behavior to "Simple IP Only". Change is good...

ESN change works on the 650 and 755p too. (but not Centro! it uses MEID and I don't have any info on the chipset)

But EVDO does not work. still have to disable Mobile IP (unless you figure out the pw)

Hope someone will continue my work. I am not able to as I have not received any broken Palms for research. If you can help me post a message at HoFo for people to send me broken Palms for research I will be thankful. I try to ask in mobile files dot com but the moderators considered it advertisement. but asking for donation is not advertisement. I have proof that I was successful to make changes that were difficult with shadowmite's serial cable method.

Centro USES MSM 6500. I have tried a lot to change ESN but could not succeed. I tried with USB cable so far. Now I will try with serial cable bought from randomwit

lets see whats happen.

So what was the outcome of this? Were you able to change the centro?

be careful you might not able to change back to ESN (but should since nverase erases the EFS of the palm completely)

again, we are testing/reversing against a 'black box' its hard to guarantee that there would be a outcome
