T46S recovery mode doesn't upload .rom file, Always "Start Updating..."
Hello all,

I am following the instructions to fix a bricked T46S phone and I am able to successfully get the phone to talk to my tftp server on my computer and it will go as far as uploading the .rfs and .bin files to the phone, but once it does the phone changes to a light-blue background with Red letters that says "Start Updating..." and doesn't do anything further. After a few minutes, the phone reboots and says always "Initializing...please wait". I suspect, that it runs in a timeout.

In the tftp syslog, I see the read request from the phone for T46S.rom, T46S.bin and T46S.rfs. The T46S.bin and T46S.rfs are loaded successfully to the phone, but by the request for T46.rom, the tftp tells me, that the file is too large.

Any ideas as to what could be going wrong with my attempt to fix this?

Can someone help me to get the phone up and running again?
