Default [Q] [Dell Axim X50] Need help finding ROM upgrade

So about a month ago I managed to acquire a Dell Axim X50 low at a garage sale. It is in great running shape and has Windows Mobile 2003 SE on it. I like having little electronics to take to work with me (I am not able to have anything more than a smart phone).

I have been doing a few internet searches, and I cannot seem to find any links anywhere to download the upgrade to Windows Mobile 5. Is there anywhere that anyone knows of where I would be able to acquire it online? I have searched Dell's support website and cannot find any downloads for it anywhere, and support for it has long been dropped. Thanks!

I don't know how up-to-date the website is but htcgeeks.com was always my go-to source for help when I had my Ax.

Have you tried this?

It's an update to WinMo 5.0 but it might work.

Depends whether the installer bothers to look at what's on the device first.

The 33 MB size of the package looks like its a complete WinMo 5.0 ROM

Good Luck!
