    First, Look in the huge a$$ thread pertaining to this very subject.

    Did you donwload a rar or zip file? If so you need a program like winrar (not free) or 7zip (free) to open the rsdlite file.

    Thirdly, the ROM is located the the long a$$ thread mentioned above.

    :)

    wow, did you even read the thread(s) pertaining to this very subject?

    You dont download the updater from Motorola..you get the ROM from the thread entitled "Windows Mobile 6.1 on a Q9m? Yes it can be done now!" and it provides a link, along with precise instructions on how to flash it.

    Honestly, I'm not dummy, and have searched threads for days with no results. The only consistent link I find is to a site that has been down for days. Can someone note a valid link. Again, honestly, every reference I find is a link to a link to a link to a down site. It's very frustrating...
