"hacked" E815

I just "hacked" my Motorola E815 to enable the File Exchange Bluetooth profile.  Now I can transfer the pictures directly off of the phone, without going through Verizon's network.


SuperJason, pointed me to this post that described the steps to get this to work.  The instructions worked perfectly for me.  I did have a couple of annoyances:


  1. When I was upgrading the Motorola Phone Tools, the upgrader needed to reboot my computer multiple times

  2. In step 5, I didn't realize that I had to install additional drivers.  It looks like when the Motorola Phone Service Tool application runs, it registers more "devices" on the phone.  Until I actually installed the drivers for those devices, nothing worked.
