    Well, I've been researching the same thing lately... turns out you can only use a serial cable to program it (or a modified usb cable with a certain chip). I'd take a look around the Cricket forums for more info, one guy sells a modified usb cable for $75 (although a google search finds several cheaper serial cables).
    Looking to buy something online? Try getaproduct.com

    Would still be interested in selling my Motorola i930. Not in the best condition (outside lcd screen doesn't work, spring to flip the phone shut won't click closed anymore) - but hey, that just means I'd sell it for less . Unlocked and decerted, of course . PM me if interested.

    ;^) The fellow you want is RandomWit. He wrote a tutorial all about flashing Trēos, right here. Mind you, his is for flashing them to Cricket, but if you already know the relevant Metro details, you should have little trouble adapting his techniques.

    If you do get one of his cables, tell him that Mr._Pseudonym sent you....

    Do you have it in DIAG mode? (See Mr. Pseudonym's link)

    Flashing Treo Cables Solved

    I BOUGHT AN RS-232 SERIAL TO USB CONVERTER FROM MICROCENTER. IT COST 29.99 AND CAME WITH A DISK THAT CONTAINED THE DRIVERS. I THEN BOUGHT A Serial (RS232) Data Cable for Palm Treo 700w FROM A COMPANY OUT OF TEXAS CALLED SUPERIORACCESSORY.COM IT COST 34.85 PLUS SHIPPING AND HANDLING. I LOADED THE DRIVERS CONNECTED BOTH CABLES, PUT MY PHONE IN DIAG MODE AND ALL MY PROGRAMS RECOGNIZED THE PHONE. THIS WAS ALOT EASIER THAT MAKING MY OWN CABLE. I HOPE THIS HELPS. ALSO MY PHONE WAS A 700WX SO I IMAGINE THIS CABLE WILL WORK FOR MORE THAN JUST ONE MODEL OF TREO.
