Question about Toshiba e830 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Rom Update Since I got some problems with my PDA, may be someone here can answer me: 1) The center switch of the "previous window function" is not work (of course I have enabled this function and release the "HOLD" lock.) 2) The slide show screen saver always running after the desired wait time when docked, no matter I have tipped the screen/worked with the PDA or playing movies in the wait time. 3) Some problems with 1G SD card, which will make the PDA unstable. Sometime the data in the 1G SD Card will lost or scratched. 4) Sometime, the Bluetooth does not work, and required a reset. 5) No stereo bluetooth stack profile.

Re: Rom Update

As far as I know there is a big difference between Japanese and European images and you can not compare them at all. If the Japanese image has a bug or if there is some problem that can be corrected with a new update that doesn’t mean that European units needs an update too. Many of your questions are not completely understandable and I can just give you an advice to use a new BT driver (question 5). I have also 1 GB SD card and I use it with my e800 without any problems. At the beginning I thought that it will be read slowly but I am very satisfied with reading/writing speed.

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: (http://www.pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&id=587&view=1)
Unoffical ROM forum: (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=349007)

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.
