IPAQ 5550 PPC 2003 -> PPC 2002

Post by Mark Stoke » Wed, 25 Feb 2004 02:29:27


Is it possible to downgrade the IPAQ 5550 to PPC 2003.

If so where can I get hold of the OS Disk. Or can I copy 'clone' one of our
IPAQ 5450 with PPC 2002 onto the 5550 ?

No.
Every update checks compatibility between the device and the device it is
intended for. And, should you be able to hexedit all that, you would
definitely lose 64MB RAM (as 2002 is not capable of adressing more than
64MB), if not other functionality... I would strongly recommend not to
try....

That's going to be one very expensive paperweight.
