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...'

bad Idea ROM updates.
best is to never do it unless sure it cures a problem that you need fixed.
doing Rom up dates are very risky,
1: battery must be good. and being charged so that the process can not be interrupted.
2: you used XP PC of some kind to program that IPAQ rom?>
that be last choice, of all. after all most XP computers are infected with virus and malware, and is a virus magnet and not support now for 3 long years, (means its worse every day)

why even use any IPAQ,
why not just buy some used Android phone and move on, move up.
its dead product now.
IPAQ is like Elvis, he left the building.. LOL


if really motivated to make any think this old here why not ask
the real form.
Your only recourse now, it repeat the flash over and over
praying it works (with full charged and fully good batterY)

Not a problem it happens just go to hp.com download the bios driver and use it on windows xp it will not work with anyother windows and run it with your ipaq connected to the pc. This will reinstall the complete bios software and bring it back to factory.

Ipaq 4150 wpa Not connecting to WPA encrypted network. Worked with WEP


You will need to ensure that the Wireless Security settings on your router are set to at least 802.11 b/g and not just 802.11g, as the h4150 is a 802.11b device.

There is also a ROM update to 1.10 and a WLAN driver update to 2.0.53A available from HP as well for this device. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=349044&prodTypeId=215348&prodSeriesId=349042&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1087

Initialization failure after rom update


Hi. I had this problem with my iPaq and there is a soloution. Unfortunatley. it is impossible to repair whilt you are running vista. HP insists that you run Windows XP or Erlier, with Active Sync installed. We can however give this repair a try. I would need to know first of all what country you are in, and which version of the 6515 you have. i.e a, b, c etc....

email me techservices@rytech-uk.co.uk with the details and i'll email you back with the soloution.

Can't get pass the logo screen


OK, this happened to me just yesterday, and I fixed it. Here's what you need to do.

1. Connect your iPAQ to your PC. You don't need ActiveSync, but you do need to make sure that your PC can actually communicate with your iPAQ.

2. Go to where you extracted the ROM update files. It's probably at "C:\iPAQ\SP26263" or something like that.

3. Download a hex editor. Here's one: http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm#download

4. Use the hex editor and open up H2B11020uo.nbf

5. Maximize the hex editor to full screen. Look at the right screen where it says "hp ipaq h1940 1.10.20 ENG". Fill up the top row with zeros. The words "hp ipaq h1940 1.10.20 ENG" will disappear.

6. Within "C:\iPAQ\SP26263", open up ROMUpdateUtility. It won't recognize your device (WHICH IS GOOD). Then you can reinstall the ROM update.

Ipaq H4150


Have you used a Vista PC as the host machine? ROM updates can only be done from a Win XP or 2000.

Hook the iPaq to an Win XP or 2k PC, install active sync first, and then get the ROM update again. Run the Rom Update Utility and it will recognise the iPaq and will update it correctly. :)
