Re: convert from german to english.

First of all in order to make a language change you will need to have the entire ROM memory of your PDA rewritten. It is similar with the windows OS for a computer. If you want all the interface in another language,you will need a specially created version of windows. Also, PDA's are skipped in one original language wich cannot be modified normaly. You will lose any guarantee or such related stuff if you attempt this. Also the RUU (ROM update utility) doesn't allow such actions, because it will check your pda ROM version and language before writting anything on it. For HP Ipaq series, I know of some sort of cracks to make the pda believe that the language being installed with a ROM version file is the same with what's inside. However with HTC as whell as MDA, XDA, VDA and so on (all made at HTC factory) you will need hexazecimal editing of the actual ROM file. The risks are hight because if something goes rong, it will render your pda pretty much useless and a further repair will be more expensive. In your case, the safest way is to try to have it fixed at a service center. If you however prefer to try to upgrade the ROM yourself (I pretty much don't recomand) I will try to assist you with the procedure, if I can find these ROM updates. Sorry for I can't give a more explicit answer, but if you have more questions feel free to ask. Good luck.

How to instal english language pack

Just Google through the internet with the words "rx3715 language upgrade rom" and you will find several references to it.

At the end, you will find a couple of places where they have the lniks to access directly the HP/Compaq fttp sites, and download the ROM upgrade files in different language versions.

Also, in the web you will find a couple of sites that have the specific instructions and procedures to do it.

On purpose I am not giving you such sites and links because I have to warn you: such files and procedures work in 90% of the times. The catch is that such procedures forces the PDA to accept the new language rom, but in 10% of the times, such process is aborted with no apparent reason, and the PDA is converted in an useless PDA, but it is converted in a good looking paper weight or dead brick.

Bottom line, it's possible to change the language ROM (I did it a lot of times before: English, Spanish, Chinese, Italian and French), but it's risky, and it will damage permanently your PDA (such as I did in two of them).

Best regards,

Best regards,

Yakumo delta 300 gps

I have the english manual for Yakumo 300 Delta GPS. However, if you have the german version of the PDA you cannot change the language - you need to get an English version of Windows and install it.

The manual is a 3,52 mb pdf-file. Drop me a line if you want med to mail it.

Changing the language

Hi, Pocket PC's have Windows OS installed on them. As with computers, you woun't find any option to change the language of the operating system. Your computer comes with english Windows, and however you try, it woun't be an option to change the language of the whole OS. It is the same with PDA's. But even harder than that, each PDA comes with a specific Windows, altrought it is the same version to other PDA's it has some specific things to each model. You can't install a Windows made for HP Ipaq to a Dell PDA because it will simply not work. Also, the language wich is skipped with a PDA is not to be changed. The producing company will consider this ilegal in some cases. I don't know why but they simply woun't want to change the language for you. However, there some triks to do that your self. To change a language means to change the whole operating system installed in the ROM memory. But like I said, the producers woun't simply allow that, and when you will try to install a diferent language ROM on the PDA it will give you some errors. I know of some ways to deal with this, but it works only for HP PDA's. It will be risky to try it on your own PDA. Also it is a fairly complicated process, involving hexazecimal editing and decompiling a ROM image. The simplest thing you can do is to go to a service center (other that viewsonic's one or major service facilities) and ask them to do that for you.

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.

Language settings

Sorry but I have bad news for you. If you buy one product like PDA or Notebook you buy automatically OS with license. As far as i know Microsoft do not sell Pocket PC as retail product. I can not understund why Microsoft does not sell the different language as they do for Windows XP. Therefor, a German PDA may not be flashed with another language version. Only what you can do is make some updates in the installed language. If you want to have PDA with English OS you must ask your local dealer whether it is possible to order such one.
