    Thanks for confirming that.

    BTW, can you check the current Phone Tools app file version # on your Milestone? The version we have here is "File Version 0.29.02".
    In case you don't know how to find it...

    Menu>Settings>Applications> Manage Applications ... then Menu> Filter > "All" and it should show up in the apps list, tap it and see what the version is. Should show as Version 2902 (or later).

    If you have a later version you could copy the personalportal.apk on to your SD card and then post it :)

    It should be in "System/app" directory.

    OH, also does your allow connection with WiFi AND USB ??

    It said version 1000401. I don't know if it's a later version or not. yes, it does allow for Wifi and USB.
    I see the personalportal.apk but how do I copy it to the SD card? I see it using Astro.

    Long press on the file and the menu will pop up, chose edit, then the edit menu will pop up, then tap copy. Then navigate to the SD card and tap the "Edit" button the upper menu, then select paste.

    From there you can long press the file on the SD card, select Edit, then rename, just add .zip to the file name and post it here!

    Also please check and see if there is a matching "personalportal" file below the first one in the app directory, this would be the odex file and we would need both of them if it has an odex. Hopefully it doesn't have an odex file as this will make it harder to turn into an installable apk.

    THANKS!

    Newer Version with added USB support!

    FOUND newer version in a Milestone Dump.. AND it also supports USB!!!!

    Download, extract apk and install!!

    To use USB cable it appears to want some additional Motorola USB SoftwareDrivers,... I am on the hunt for them now. I have a sneaking suspicion this is just for connecting to the normal Motorola/Nero MultiMedia Link Software.

    nthanh61,
    Do you have the USB drivers and software that came with your Milestone? If so can you zip them up and post them? Should be on the CD that came with the phone. Or can you confirm this is just MultiMedia Link Software?

    No. It doesn't have an odex file and enjoy.

    Thanks. it is odd that the version you posted is the older version without USB support, 0.29.02, and the one I pulled of the Milestone dump is version 1.00 and supports USB.....I also noticed the earlier version is much faster...strange!

    Cool app - not sure what to do with it yet. Can't transfer file with any browser - Am I missing the link to do this?? This feature would make it much more useful.

    You should take a few minutes and read thru the whole thread, your answer is there.. but at least start at post #32 and read from there about file management/transfers with this app.

    Hope that helps,

    Which version of the app are you using?

    If you are using the lastest one (1.00) try the 0.29 version and see if there is a difference.

    Thanks 928Droid, for the newer version.

    Unfortunately, I still can't get it to work via USB. It said to plug in USB to launch, but I already had it connected. I killed the app, unplugged USB, launched the app and plugged in the cable, but nothing happened.

    Anybody get this working via USB?

    The zip file you upload showed version 0.29.02 when I installed it.

    Open the app on your Milestone and see if it has options for USB and WiFi.

    Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage Applications scroll down and look for "Phone Portal", select it, then tap "Unistall"

    FYI, if you want to unistall the 029 version do the same as above but look for "Phone Tools" instead of "Phone Portal"(v1)

    OK, I have read the full thread and now I'm all turned around.
    Can I request someone list the versions in a single thread and describe the desired scenarios for each?
    How about a step by step. All the info here is getting scrambled.
    The above said, I take it the first version is the fastest over for Wi-Fi?
    Thanks.

    Thanks,

    I have tried both and whew! Is that newer one slow. The older one really moves. So I am using the older version now.

    Now then.......... I cannot see a file managed tab in either browser. IE8 or FF 3.5.7..

    Wadaya think?
