Question about HP iPAQ RX3715 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Rx3715 several problems

Hello,i own a rx3715 and facing some problems. 1 the battery is displayed as unknown in the battery status menu, no level of charge no nothing. When connected to the charger there is no led flashing, amber light or anything. Also, is it normal that the pda can power on using only the charger, with no battery inserted? Other ipaq's don't do that from my experience. 2 the sd card (any sd/mmc card inserted) works very slow, it also slows down the pda very much. It takes about 10 min to copy a 3 mb file from another location to the sd card. 3 the pda doesn't always power on from the power button. To power on i must make a soft reset. I think those problems are somewhat related each other. After a ROM update they still remain unsolved. Also I do have some other questions about rx3715. Is it possible to install wm5 on it, where can it be found? Are there any programs to improve the camera performance?

    What problems do you have more exactly? Is your rx3715 using the original battery? And how did the problem occured to you. It will be helpfull to me to figure what is rong as I have experience with pda's but this problem is pretty odd to me.

    :) I was shure I was facing some serious problems but as a guy with experience over these things I figured out, after the dissasembly and the ROM upgrades, that the problem isn't software nor hardware related, somewhere between - the firmware. A ROM update doesn't replace the PDA's firmware so the problem can't be corrected by these methods. Sometimes the card is more faster, sometimes is not, the battery isn't displayed most of the time and no leds are flashing altrought the charging circuitry is ok.
    Therefore my question is, is there a way to upgrade the firmware for this device? Not a ROM updade, a firmware one.

If you have only flashed the English ROM, not any other language ROMs, read the following paragraphs. If you have flashed other language ROMs but not the German one try flashing the German one instead, there is something about it that clears the ppc out better. If you have flashed the German one, do not read on, as it will be an insult to your intelligence.

Most problems can be fixed with a ROM correction. Unfortunately, this is unachievable by simple re-flashing the English ROM. Certain other versions of the ROM (usually German is used) contain different enough sets of code (possibly different firmware?) to force the ppc to truly reset, unlike what happens when simply flashing the US ROM or changing to ROMS that use similar enough coding. Try flashing the German ROM and THEN reverting to the English. This tends to solve most any major iPaq issue.
