Phone blocked whilst trying to flash firmware


You need to bring your unit to cellphone technician. They have special cable for connecting dead units to a box then to computer and reload the firmware. the cable and box are very expensive and not advisable for 1 time use.

Lost CD Rom for my Axim x30. Anywhere I can download it?


You need ActiveSync from Microsoft. Unless you're using Vista which uses Windows Mobile Device Center. Connecting to the Axim to a Vista machine should automatically download the Windows Mobile Device Center software.

ActiveSync for XP and older systems can be downloaded here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-synch.mspx

You'll proabbly still want to update your Axim's firmware and drivers if possible.

Good luck!

Motorola Phone Tools can not access to A1200 (System Memory is full)


It sounds like a bad flash or firmware to me. I would reflash to a different firmware. You can only flash to the same or a higher track with these phones, so be careful not to flash to a lower track. You could brick your phone.

ASUS MyPal A626 Wouldn't boot


On the right side of your ASUS A626 there is a switch that says "HOLD". Make sure that isn't flipped on.

CD no good


Hi Kutemba,

Thanks for asking me to be your tech buddy.

May I pls inform you that my knowledge and experience with mobile phones and PDAs would be at best described as "for personal consumption only".

In any case, it would seem that the company/website that deals with the X500 is www.etencorp.com. Their support/download page is here. There is however another company/website http://glofiish.com/ that also deals with your unit. heir support/download page is here. Available on that page are manuals, software, Windows Mobile Upgrades (Versions 5 & 6). You need to joij as a member. Additionally, the updates require a licensed copy of WM5.

The good news is all are in English. There is also a ROM update which may be needed if the unit has firmware issues as others in your original post have posted.

Another that I would like to suggest (if you haven't tried yet) is to leave the battery off the unit at least overnight.
For the moment, try to download all related files, manuals, updates, firmware, ROM and whatever you feel would be relevant to your X500. Please create a temporary folder in your PC to house all the downloaded files.

Good luck.
