Question about HP Jornada 720 Pocket PC

Operating System Upgrade

Can the factory installed operating be up graded with the new Pocket PC 2002. The only qualification that I have found is that the device must have a StrongArm Processor. Or is there also a ROM upgrade. If so where can a new ROM be obtained.

My Dell Axim X5 400MHz Pocket PC wont hold the charge


Some people have said that the original ppc2002 ROM has battery draining problems. If this is something new, perhaps it is a bad battery. Ebay for a new one.

If you think it might be a software problem and you have ppc2002-also known as Windows Mobile 2002, upgrade your Axim with the A04 ROM:http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R63937&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X5&servicetag=&os=PPC&osl=en&deviceid=4434&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=7&fileid=82832

Other Axim stuff here (make sure to choose the correct operating system - ppc 2002 or ppc 2003): http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X5&category=0&os=PPCA&osl=EN

Upgrade the software and operating system


Yes, the OS is stored into a flash memory partition and can be changed, but this is not currently available to customers. NEC will provide an OS upgrade service at a future time.

H3630 upgrade rom 2.07 to 2.20


I would check your iPAQ to see what operating system is showing. Start -> Settings -> System (Tab on bottom) -> About (icon) this will tell you if its 2000 or 2002. You may have to acquire an older ROM and reflash.

PC 2003 for e350


Microsoft recently introduced Windows Mobile 2003, which is the latest upgrade to the Pocket PC's operating system and built-in applications. The previous version of this software was referred to as "Pocket PC 3.0" or sometimes as "Pocket PC 2002" (for the year it was released). But the new naming scheme for all of the software built into the Pocket PC is meant to emphasize the relationship between the mobile device and Windows, Microsoft's classic brand. Unless otherwise indicated, whenever I refer to a Pocket PC in this article, I mean a device running Windows Mobile 2003. Not all of the features listed in this article are available for all Windows Mobile 2003 devices since some of these features require additional hardware such as a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a keyboard. Along with Windows Mobile 2003, Microsoft released ActiveSync 3.7, an upgrade to the software used to synchronize data between the Pocket PC and the desktop PC. This article focuses on the new software from the perspective of an end-user—the improvements that make using a Pocket PC an easier, more enjoyable experience. In summary, Microsoft improved the operating system, enhanced communications capabilities, added some useful features to some standard applications, and included a new multimedia application and one new game. Windows Mobile 2003 uses the Windows CE 4.2 OS One of the major changes, and one that may not be obvious to the end user, is that Windows Mobile 2003 uses the new Windows CE 4.2 operating system. Previous versions of the Pocket PC used Windows CE 3.0. The 4.2 OS seems to be more efficient than the previous versions. Windows CE 4.2 also supports Internet Protocol version 6.0 (IPv6), which is being used now in Japan and will soon make its way to this country and the rest of the world. This will ensure that Pocket PC users are able to connect to the next generation of the Internet using the current standards. Added support for built-in and add-on keyboards Recognizing the success of add-on keyboards and the desire of some manufacturers to develop units with keyboards built in, Microsoft enhanced keyboard support in Windows Mobile 2003. When a Pocket PC with the new OS detects a keyboard (built-in or added), it automatically enables "menu mnemonics" (those underlined visual hints in a menu that tell you which keys to press). It also enables "Auto Menu Accelerators" (chorded keys such as Control-C for copy) so you can navigate even faster. On Pocket PCs with an integrated keyboard, navigation and application keys allow you to launch and move around in applications. Finally, the addition of the "SYM" key makes it easier to enter accented characters for foreign languages. Enhanced communications Windows Mobile 2003 makes the setting up of communications a lot easier. Plug in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a wired modem, or turn on your LAN connection and a "wizard" pops up to walk you through the process of configuring th

Windows CE Program's


On the new Toshiba e310, e570 and e740 Pocket PCs, Microsoft's new operation system Pocket PC 2002 is installed. The question whether Windows CE programs run under Pocket PC 2002 has no definite answer. Most Windows CE Program will run under Pocket PC 2002. Pocket PC 2002 is an improved version of Windows CE, or rather, the next generation of Microsoft PDA operating systems. Some parts of the internal architecture of the operating system, like the e-Mail system, are of a complete new design and in fact, quite different. So if you run older Windows CE programs using "old and possibly, changed parts of Window CE system", it is quite possible that the Windows CE program will not run or will not operate correctly. Tip: To avoid problems or data loss, we suggest using Pocket PC 2002 programs only. Please note: Pocket PC 2002 is only available for Intel "Strong ARM" processors. This is different to Windows CE, where several CPU's types were supported. Only Windows CE Programs for Intel Strong ARM" processors may run an Pocket PC 2002.
