Kids, don’t try this at home!

Today, I did something I’d never done before. It was risky and a bit scary, and I don’t recommend it as a general procedure for everyone.

Yes, I upgrade my new Window Mobile Pocket PC. What made it risky was that I upgraded it to the ROM images that didn’t come from my manufacturer, but rather from that of a similar device. In fact, there are several devices sold by various vendors that are all basically the same hardware under the hood; they vary in the specific software their vendors bundle on them.

If you’re interested in why I did this, and how I did it, you can read all about it either online or via Word doc.
