This does work:


Unzip (do not execute!) PocketDOS_111.exe

Go into the Smartphone Directory of the unzipped PocketDOS_111.exe

copy DR-DOS_703.CAB and PocketDOS.arm_400sp.CAB on the phone.
Run and install both CAB files on the DASH.

Once done, get the Landscape mode update here:

Unzip & update the pocketdos.exe file to the DASH.

P.S: the Landscape mode beta seems a bit buggy with the keyboard.
In order to fix the issue you have to assign the numbers key to their corresponding letter using the CUSTOM menu.

Its working fine per the install instructions above, however the keyboard support is a problem. I'm unable to get it configured to work well enough to be useful, but I haven't spent too much time on it.

It does partially work if you switch between the CUSTOM mode & the others one.

There are two further test (beta) versions available from:

These versions specifically address the numeric/alpha key issue.
