Question about Compaq iPAQ H3970 Pocket PC

1 Answer

3970 Stuck I have a real nice 3970 IPAQ. I love it and recently let the battery die so I had to reinstall. All went well and then I wanted to update the ROM. Well I did not have the power cord at work so it said it had to be connected to reboot. I get home connect it and as it reboots the power cord gets pulled out. Now I am stuck at the IPAQ Compaq 2.00 Boot Screen and can not go any further. I have tried a soft reset, NOTHING, a Hard Reset, NOTHING, let the battery Die, NOTHING… I hope I did not ruin it.. Any ideas?

Try this, take the ipaq off the cradle, turn the ipaq off (if you can), restart the desktop, put the ipaq back in thc cradle, turn the ipaq on, and restart ROM update again.

Problem synching after Daylight Savings Time

I have this problem too. The only way I can correct it, is by removing the battery, reinstalling it and letting it boot up again. Then I plug into the USB port for iPAQ and it seems to connect to ActiveSync. It's a real pain.

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.
