Re: Rom update failed

Hi, Sadly this will be a specialist repair. The ROM chip inside your phone is now corrupt as the information being written to it, did not complete. You may have seen the notices about not switchin off the power or running from the battery while carrying out this procedure. This may need a new rom or even a board. Without a special tool to re-write the ROM you will be unable to repair this. Not many places have these tools. Sorry it's not good news :(

When you turn on Treo you get an error message 'update ROM Image?' If you select yes is displays ROM Image not found and then displays a screen with 8 multi-colored squares

"rom Image" is reffering to the operating system on the phone, this is common when rooting android phone but not sure on treo, check treo website for "rom update" may have to plug ur phone into your computer to doit. hope this helps

IPAQ HX4700 won't sync with desk top

Hello, Please try the following steps. They could help with your problem. First open this link to hp's download page for your PDA. Then select your pda's operating system (windows mobile 2003se or windows mobile 5). then from the following page select the ROM update and download it. Try to master reset the pda (you may find informations about this in the user manual). After you reset the device, don't tap anything on the screen (don't follow the welcome wizard or anything it asks you to do). Just connect the usb cable to the computer. Activesync may try to connect to the pda, may fail or things like this. It doesn't matter what does it do as long as it does something. Now open the ROM file you downloaded and press "next" untill the process begins. If the setup asks you to reset the device or things similar, don't do it. Just continue with the setup and "tell" the program you already done that. Make sure your battery is charged before doing this. Also make sure the pda and the computer are left alone these 10 minutes (that's how long it takes to do the ROM update). If the ROM update fail, please post a comment and give me the error message and code. We will take it from there. Also please inform me what version of windows are you using and eventually an email adress for me to send various service programs required for the next stage (if the rom update fails to work). Good luck, Bogdan

Hi I treid to do a ROM update on my HP iPAQ 4150. The update stopped and the screen now shows 1.05H and 1.02 and only the HP logo. Does not go anyfurther. Furthermore the iPAQ is not recognized by...

I ran into the same issue with a H4150. Pull the main battery and let it sit without the battery for a while; a few seconds is not long enough. I let it sit for about two minutes and that was long enough on each of the four times I needed to recover from a failed ROM upgrade last night. This reset the H4150 and it then initialized like it was just out of the box; all data and settings were reset to original. Some troubleshooting procedures indicate you should not use a USB hub for this process. That did not work for me-the ROM upgrade still breaks the connection just after getting started. But at least pulling the battery got the iPAQ back to a useable condition. My next test will be to try it from an old PC with Windows 98 and USB 1.1 or 1.0. Maybe the brief disconnection is normal and a fast PC with a modern OS may not be as forgiving to brief upsets. Just as the ROM update really begins (after all the handshaking), the iPAQ briefly drops the connection and that's when the update fails, it just takes a little longer for the software to say 'hey-I've lost communication with the iPAQ...'

Http error $code$

i've gotten that a couple times when trying to connect via the internal modem, a simple reset usually fixed it. If your wifi settings are messed up make sure your wifi switch is on, ensure it is enabled in com manager too. Also, try removing the wireless network via the software and adding it again. if all that fails do a hard reset. If that fails you are pretty much out of luck. I had two MDA's.... they both slowly got **** as months went by and i constantly had to reload the firmware, you may want to consider a different model

You may be in need for a ROM update/reinstall. It is pretty easy to do that. You can either go at HP's web site and download a ROM update for your specific model. Make shure you select your operating sistem rigt. Or you can browse the internet for a specific ROM update for your model. I recomand the HP site, and if you have problems regarding the ROM update process, or the ROM and OS version you need, please reply here and I'll guide you throught. Good luck.

HP IPAQ 5555 1.10.13 ROM UPDATE

I thought my 5555 with 1.10.10 was the latest and most stable?? How come i didnt know about 1.10.13 ROM Update... Anyway, i think it is your Camera Update that causes it. But to confirm, which ROM are you using now? Go to "Start" >> Settings >> "Asset Viewer" >> Under Version >> check the ROM Revision. 1.10.10 had no major problems, only sometimes when i couldnt connect to my wireless router / bluetooth problems, but now it is okay, dun worry.
