New ROM Center Many thanks goes to Globalbus, Elektrownik and Boomer for their great work and contribution! General information: This is about updating the HP iPAQ 200 series to Windows Mobile 6.5 iPAQ 210, 211, 212, 214 and 216 ROM update. Rom update: Format a SD card with FAT16 and make it bootable. You can use the HP bootable flash utility To update the ROM image download a ROM package and extract bldiag.nb0 (the update image loader) and HPImage.bin Copy both files to a SD Card, place the SD Card in the SD Slot and Press and hold the Calendar and Windows keys, then momentary press Reset. You should see a white screen and then a blue progress bar like this: If the iPAQ just reboots then check the following: - SDHC does not work. (Size must be 2GB or smaller) - SD Card must be formatted with FAT16 and bootable. - Update files must be in the root dir. After the update is finished the iPAQ will do a clean boot.
