How can I collect logical data from an iDEN device with MPE+?

Devices: Supported iDEN devices
Type of Capture: Logical

Procedure:

  1. Download and extract the attached iDENAD.zip.
  2. Power on the phone.
  3. Set the phone to connect as a modem (typically Menu > Settings > Connections > USB > Data Modem).
  4. Connect phone with the proper cable. Windows will likely try to automatically install the driver. Whether this installation fails or not, we need to change the driver.
  5. Open the Device Manager and find the iDEN Device entry (may be under Modems).
  6. Right-click the iDEN Device entry and select "Update Driver Software".
  7. Tell Windows to browse your computer for driver software.
  8. Tell Windows to let you pick from a list of drivers.
  9. Click "Have Disk" and browse to the "iDEN" folder extracted from step 1 and select "iDEN_USB_Device.inf", and click "OK" then "Next".
  10. When prompted, allow the driver to install. When the installation completes, Device Manager should now list a device called "iDEN USB Device" under "libusb-win32 devices".
  11. In MPE+, click the "Select Device" button on the Main toolbar.
  12. Select the proper manufacturer in the Manufacturer drop-down.
  13. Select the proper device in the Model drop-down.
  14. Click "Connect" and proceed to acquire the data you want.
  15. Part way through acquiring data (usually after acquiring the phone book), progress will stop, the phone screen may turn white, and Windows will likely try to automatically install another driver. Whether this installation fails or not, we need to change the driver.
  16. Open the Device Manager and find the iDEN Device entry.
  17. Right-click the iDEN Device entry and select "Update Driver Software".
  18. Tell Windows to browse your computer for driver software.
  19. Tell Windows to let you pick from a list of drivers.
  20. Click "Have Disk" and browse to the "FlashPatriot" folder extracted from step 1 and select "Flash_P2K_Patriot.inf", and click "OK" then "Next".
  21. When prompted, allow the driver to install. When the installation completes, Device Manager should list a device called "Flash P2K Patriot" under "libusb-win32 devices" and MPE+ should continue and finish the extraction.


Notes:

  • MPE+ only supports extraction of Contacts from most iDEN phones.
