you can switch the language. But it is not easy. Especially with the new
iPAQs it is hard to do, because HP did lock the previous possible ways of
doing that. I have never done this but all I know is that you have to
download the ROM update from HP website, use hex editor to alter some data
in the ROM file so that the loading software thinks that it is the proper
file for your original PDA language. Probably you have to find and change a
string which equals to the language name. If your iPAQ has for example
french ROM, you have to download english ROM from HP website and then change
the ROM ID to french one.
