Re: install new operating system

You can install through the USB port, either with a regular USB flash drive with the proper software on it (if you are installing something like Linux), or by plugging in an external hard drive (Firewire would also work for this, if your computer supports it) to read the installation CD-ROM.

Want to re-load the os

You won't be able to reload the operating system per se because Windows Mobile 6 is not released for end users as an installable OS. You may be able to visit the web page of your carrier, choose your phone, and see if there has been a new version released. Follow the instructions, and you might get it working quickly.

But, since your phone doesn't boot, it won't be able to establish the activesync connection required by the rom updater. You may have to send your phone back to the manufacturer, unless your carrier has the ability to use a direct serial link (uncommon though).

I want to install an English operating system in my pda. The current system is Chinese. How do I do that

Hello, you can flash your phone with ROM provided by HP if you are with Windows Mobile 6.

"The Package contains ROM Update utility (RUU) only for products supporting the following SKU IDs. Supported SKU IDs: FA979AA#ABA, FA980AA#ABA, FA982AA#ABB, FA982AT#ABB, FA981AA#ABG, FA981AA#ARE, FA981AA#ACJ, and FA981AA#UUF."

You can find your Product ID by going here:
Start>Settings>AssetViewer>System>Product ID

If your Product ID match with these download ROM Update from Manfufactures web site and update your Pocket PC.

Just select your language: Chinese (Simplified); Chinese (Traditional); English (International); French; German; Italian ;Japanese; Korean; Portuguese (Brazilian); Russian; Spanish, from download section for your pocket pc.

It`s around a 38MB. Install it on your desktop machine and follow instructions provided by ROM Update program.

This is not new operating system installation, it`s just language update to your current installation.

How to use information, you can find on this section in manufactures web site.

I do not test it on this phone, use it with caution and on your own risk.

New ROMs are avlaiable at the imate website.
You may check there or if you want to take risk, you may also try custom ROMs available at forum sites where users make their own OS ROMs.

Hi there, I Like to upgrade in my I-Mate JAQ OS WM 5 TO OS WM 6,1 or 6,5 if its is possible.Please show me how to do this. Thank you, Aleksandar

Hi, I'm afraid there is no offical or unoffical ROM upgrade for your PDA yet (ROM is the place where the PocketPC operating system is stored, and each device model has a different ROM so sadly you cannot use any other Windows Mobile 6 ROMs with your device.). I am giving more details about this issue to make it clear. Still you can follow the forums time to time to check if someone makes a ROM for your PDA. Basic problem is unlike most of the PDAs, your PDA is a non-HTC based PDA. I hope this helps. You can still download some PDA software to use your device more efficiently (Most of the PDA softwares are designed for working on both WM5 and WM6, since your device uses WM5, you won't be having a problem.).
Details of your PDA: (
Unoffical ROM forum: (

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.

My first opinion would refer to the operating system stored in ROM. Maybe you have a ROM data corruption and you may need to upgrade/reinstall the OS and other files in ROM. As you can't make a connection with active sync (try it however) you will need to have the ROM updated via a specially formated SD card. This is risky to do it yourself as it involves hex editing and raw formating a SD card. If something is done wrong the process fails and the PDA could get damaged. Please go to a service center to have it fixed by them. It is the most safest way. If you however manage in some way to make an active sync connection with you pda (either a partnership or guest connection) you can try to upgrade the ROM yourself using the patch provided by Dell (this is a safe way). Here is a link to download a ROM installation file (english version,also it is Windows Mobile 5, it will also upgrade your operating system) (this is an official upgrade from Dell, please follow the instruction in the program). For any other question please feel free to ask and also always remember to rate any answers received from this site :) Good luck !

Change hotsync

Changing back to Palm Desktop Software from Outlook with Tungsten E 1 Place the Installation CD that came along with your handheld onto your cd-rom. Wait for it to load after which you’ll see a splash screen with different menus. Note: If the cd does not automatically load, double click on my computer then click on the cd-rom drive icon and finally click on the first icon (looks like a cd) labeled ‘autorun’ 2. Select ‘Install Microsoft Outlook Conduits’ 3. Click on ‘Install’ 4. Click on ‘Yes’ 5. Click on ‘Yes” 6. Click on ‘Ok’ 7. Click on ‘Back’ 8. Click on ‘Exit’
