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?

Re: rx3715 several problems

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.

Help with IPAQ RX3715

(1) LAST USED APPLICATION Enable password protection. Start>Settings>Password (2) SENSITIVITY / PRIVACY Choosing "Private" prevents the appointment from appearing on your Today screen. I figured this out by creating two appointments for today and making one normal and one private. The private appointment is still viewable in the Calendar application, so if you want to prevent others from being able to access this, enable password protection. (3) TODAY MENU There is no way to do this using the software that came with the iPAQ. However, there may be third-party software that would accomplish it. I did a quick search that turned up nothing, but you might be able to find something. Try or
