Question about Eten Glofiish X500 GPS Pocket PC

1 Answer

CD no good

Now I have discovered that I am unable to install anything from the CD that came with the X500 (which is in Spanish). I can read enough Spanish to know that it won't install anything....
Is there anyplace on the internet where I can download an English version of the CD?

I am continuing to have the same problems. With charger on and attempt to charge, green light on continually. Try to reset while holding down on button, green light changes to flashing red. Disconnect from charger, hold on button, flashing red light only. Try to reset while holding on button...red light flashes faster.

    Hi, I have tried again and again to get help from Eten and Glofiish at the sites you mentioned. They won't let me into the site without joining, and when I have filled in all the information they ask for I get the message ""Cannot locate proxy which supporte Remote Scripting. Was RSEnable Remote Scripting method invoked?"
    And when I click that is shuts down...

    Very frustrating!

    Brilliant. I did get in, was able to register with Eten on Internet Express...Guess Eten doesn't like Firefox! I was able to download the manual in English...but because the language on the X500 is Spanish...all the downloads for the software are in Spanish. Any idea how I can get them to give them to me in English?

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.

    I understand. Will try to do some more research for you.

    In the meantime as earlier posted, try removing the battery for an extended period of time.

    Cheers.

    Hi again,

    A short update, apparently both sites have not yet finished implementing all of their pages. Most are just mock-ups of to "follow soon" intelligent contents.

    Looking at alternative sources of information.

    Will post update soon as available.

    Keep your hopes up.

    Cheers.

    and hello once again,

    When you try the sites, is your browser Firefox? If yes can you pls try using Internet Explorer?

    Hi,

    another update, pls make sure that the battery cover is securely lock in place.

    I understand. This will be the tricky part since changing from Spanish to English would mean totally deleting/erasing everything inside the X500 and you would have to start fresh.

    From what I gather, though not really that technical, it do requires a bit of knowledge on flashing/upgrading, bootloaders and stuff like that.

    I am still in the process of compiling a procedural listing on how it is done.

Palm unable to read card


Usually you just need to reformat the card to fix it. It may be reable in a pc/laptop so you can get anything important off first. Reformat copy your stuff back on and you should be good to go.

And yup this happens rather randomly and at the most annoying time possible usually ;-]

My x500 freez upon boot


there's a small capacitor on the eten x500 mainboard, very close to the reset button. it's a pull-down capacitor that counts tao-time for entering your unit to bootloader.

I believe this capacitor is broken, and device cannot enter to windows OS and keep the bootloader mode.

you can try to download the ETEN last rom image and try to flash it, maybe it will be the solution for you. but I guess the capacitor in the mainboard could be the real reason. that's from my technician experience..
