the main problems with using modified version's of hp's bootloader for these roms are that
they will screw up your device if you flash from a pc using windows vista,
you need activesync installed to use them (with the correct version too),
and they still do rom header/version checks for certain roms and versions you have on the device.

I have no problem with flashing in Vista, use this guide http://www.modaco.com/RUU-Vista-done-u-t252977.html

there's also mine, that's been out for quite a few years:
http://forum.brighthand.com/showthread.php?t=246529

basically just put the hx4700 in bootloader mode (iTASK+CONTACTS+Reset), then run the bootloader and select kozhura's .rar file and it will do the rest.
you can use it to flash any rom on any ipaq ;)

Thanks for the tip, I always flashed my device with the modified hpRUU, never had a problem with it. Never to old to learn though :)

Edit: new release on 4pda from kozhura:

Don't know what is fixed here, I don't understand Russian ;)

problem with suggest more words when entering text

Anybody has the same problem with suggest words when entering text? Probably it‘s known as Auto Complete function.
No popup offer when I writing despite this option is ticked under system Word Completion. Unpleasant with look up in a dictionary.

Do you have the same experience?

Great job kozhura.

yeah the problem is, if you haven't done that right,
you won't know. and may screw up your iPAQ still.
whereas mine it just wont work if you haven't got the right drivers installed.

another thing to point out is that HP's can't recover from a failed rom flash.
so if you've improperly flashed it, you have to use mine.

i'm not trying to spam that mine is better,
it's just a get alot of emails from people asking me to help them recover their iPAQ due to flashing with the HP ones (modded and original).
and it can get pretty annoying.

According to google translation the newest update has:

What's new :
1. delete fully Customes Feedback
2. clean debris from the roster (!)
3. Icons do not disappear after the waffles
4. unsigned files should work

Auto Complete function don't work.
Another bug: If you put shortcut icon on start menu, and if this program is installed on storage card, after soft reset you will lost icon on start menu - instead you will get generic icon.
Remain bug from ACU 3.5.2 - Turning on WiFi results on Turn on, then turn off and finnaly tun ON.
Menus don't have sound - is it normal?

Kozhura, fantastic work. hx4700 is in the speed of light - so far - almost all software is installed on SD Card.

Aargh. Same problems as with Axim X51v WM6 ROM: :(
See: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=1448919&postcount=246
I still hope that Football or Kozhura can fix this otherwise you cannot use this device in a corporate environment (Activesync with Exchange/SSL). My other device is a hx4700

Yep, I can confirm that it is not possible to use an Exchange Server with SSL due to an invalid security certificate. Especially when using a public hotspot, this is very insecure!

Any hope for a quick solution?

Real-VGA

Hi kozhura,

after update with WM6 I tried RealVGA (MvRTrueVGA 1.3) and the icons in the upper line are missing. Now I made a restore with SKTools from my WM5 backup with installed MvRTrueVGA and all icons are visible. So I think it must be possible to switch to RealVGA - but how ??? Can anybody help ???


Because Windows Mobile 6 cannot use unwritable files-it`s not a BUG

What means this ???

Greetings Uwe

This is working in the same way on wm5. It's not a wm6 bug.

    Well how long have I owned my Ipaq! - about 4 years (when they were first released),

    How long have I known about this mod - about 4 days!

    Just flashed my 4700 and everything is great. Amazing speed and it feels like I have a new PDA (i was going to get a new one for christmas, now there is no need).

    Tomtom works well as does WIFI and Bluetooth (i have used WPA no probs) only thing I have noticed is the battery drains more, is this me or what??

    You can try the Fake Server Hack, you can find it on this page http://forums.sbsh.net/index.php?showtopic=11823 (post #8) to stop the battery drain.

    Have done this today (also with fix 4 now) ... hope this will work :)
