    put the sbf file on your desktop. open rsd click the "..." button near the top of the rsd window... that will show the browse window... now just find the sbf on your desktop

    the one telling you that you have a newer version is probiably your drivers.... as long as you have a driver that recognises your phone youll be fine. did you unzip the rsd file and patch the ini yet? start there

    :thinking: an excel file? wtf? wow dude you lost me there. when you put the new ini file into the right spot did it ask you if you wanted to replace the existing file?
