View Full Version : Flashing H4150 ROM?

01-18-2004, 02:31 AM
Hi guys, I have just become a recent PPC convert with H4150 given as a present. However, I received a Chinese version model that I find awkard to use. Just wondering if it's possible to flash the rom, so that it becomes an English model? I have access to an English H4150, so would appreciate it if someone can tell me how to read, store the rom from the English one and then flash my own H4150.

Thanks in advance

It's illegal to change the language of your iPaq ! 8O Apart from that, a 'normal' ROM-image would recognize the 'old' ROM to be a different language thus refusing to overwrite.
I guess you're stuck with your chinese OS then... Unless you would want to walk the road of breaking rules and hacking the machine and the ROM :twisted:

Let's just say I'm not one who's a slave to rules and regulations. I'm not doing this for some financial gain, just for personal convenience. So if you know how, or someone who knows how it could be done, please let me know.
