Hi all,

I am buying an i-mate jam however i am holding back since Windows Mobile 5.0 has just been released until i know if the jam will be upgradeable to the new os or not.

I would not want to buy a new device and find myself wanting to buy a new one in a month coz it wont be upgradable to wm5.

I have sent an email to i-mate but they have not yet replied.

Anyone has any clue if the jam will receive a wm5 upgrade?

Hi,

I am sorry to tell you that in the meantime we are not willing to release Windows Mobile 2005 ROM upgrade for the i-mate Pocket PC, JAM, and PDA2k.

[end message]

So according to I-Mate's forum admin its a no. However, I expect to hear several conflicting stories going forward.

WM5 looks nice. I really hope that we'll see a version for the Magician at some time. My guess it that HTC will make a Magician2 with WM5 though.

Tjenare Loboman!

Vet du ett sätt att unlocka sin Qtek s100 gratis och om ExtROM version 1.11.132 (WWE) funkar på denna tele?

Tackar!

Vet inget sätt att låsa upp gratis och ännu har inte Qtek Sverige släppt någon uppgradering, men jag rekommenderar Anansky's 27MB-ROM som kan installeras oavsett vilken Magician du har. Läs hela tråden innan du testar så slipper du massor av problem.

WWE OS ROM image in booloader sd-card backup format, patched to reach the following result:
1. ExtROM completely removed out from flash memory
2. Space of ExtROM joined to \Storage part of Magician memory, makes it extended as up, as 26,72Mb, fully readable and writable

I've done the big storage upgrade, and it works very well. I upgraded mostly because I hade some strange issues with my previsous version, like no notification when I get email or SMS, and went through the extra pain to free up some more memory.

Anyway, the only thing suggesting that the Magician will eventually run WM5 is the fact that Microsoft has announced the system publicly. If HTC wants to sell devices between now and when WM5 hits the streets, they'd better offer an upgrade.

I'm not saying that we will ever see one, just that there are reasons why they should.
