After various tests, I’m convinced everything is now working.
One of the frustrations associated with the recent ‘alarms-not-sounding’ was the fact that I couldn’t use a workiong backup file and restore it to my spare XDA (and therefore have at least ONE functioning device) because the spare XDA had a different ROM version and ‘fell-over’ half way through the restore process.
Quite by chance, I found that I could download the latest ROM upgrade from the O2 website. The plan was to do this, then flash the ROM on the spare device and then restore a working backup from the main XDA – Are you still with me? 🙂
A 60Mb download later and I’m ready to flash the ROM! Success!!! I then began to restore a ‘good’ backup from the other XDA. Success too!
So, we’re better off than where I was a week ago when I had one XDA with no alarm function and a spare XDA wiith an outdated ROM. I guess sometimes there no gain when there’s no pain :))
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
