    palmOne have just released a major update for the Tungsten T5.

    http://www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads/tungstent5/tungstent5update.html

    What is the Tungsten T5 Update v1.1?

    The Tungsten T5 Update 1.1 adds enhancements that provide increased stability and reliability, as well as improved memory management on your handheld.

    New in version 1.1:

    * Resolves problems caused when synchronizing large databases and files
    * Fixes problems in the Calendar relating to Birthdays or recurring notes
    * Fixes an issue with the Find feature and Calculator application
    * Provides non-volatile file system improvements

    Also included from version 1.0 (released October 2004):

    * Fixes a problem in the Calendar that can cause a crash when the default view is changed from Agenda to Month View
    * Fixes an issue in Contacts when using the Menu drop down list for new entries
    * Adjusts the Palm OS? soft keyboard to prevent system instability in certain situations

    What to expect

    The Tungsten Update v1.1 will change the permanent (ROM) software in your Tungsten T5. Please set aside 20 minutes to complete the process.

    Here's what happens during the upgrade:

    1. Your handheld?s user name is identified
    2. Your personal data is backed up on your PC or Mac
    3. The updater is installed on your handheld
    4. The ROM updater runs automatically on your handheld
    5. All your personal data and applications are erased from the handheld
    6. The ROM software is upgraded
    7. A second HotSync operation restores the personal data and applications that were backed up earlier

    You said it !

    This update fixes the constant NVFS crash I was getting with BackupMan.

    It also freed up a truck load of RAM for me.


    24551424 bytes free RAM before upgrade
    38989824 bytes free RAM after upgrade
    14438400 bytes increase in free RAM

    Cheers

    OKay, reinstalling everything, had a bit of a scare, it was froze on the "Palm Powered" Screen for a long time, and then started flashing threw the appliations, but all seems fine now.
    Memory Before
    42.7mb out of 63.8mb

    Memory After
    46.7mb out of 63.8

    Not too bad

    Thanks for the advice (post below) i had to do a manual soft reset and it worked!

    **MY EXPERIENCE***NOT TO BE INTERPRETED AS ADVICE**
    My T5 crashed during the flash and only showed RESET on screen. Of course, I couldn't press the on-screen reset as the device was locked up solid ... so I decided to do a soft reset. I waited patiently as the T5 booted hoping it wasn't toast and it worked fine.

    Hi.

    When I click the agree button after reading the disclaimer, i cant seem to download the zip file. It takes me to a blankpage with little icon in the top right hand corner of the page but with no download.

    Has anybody else noticed this. How can i get the file?

    Yes, is there? That would be interesting. I said to myself before I bought my LD I wasnt going to complain about G2 speed but I have to. Its a little slow at times, and I dont like it waiting for to write a second stroke for certain letters, it takes too long for me to write an 'L' and then see it, plus, I liked to right my 4s by righting a small,capital 'L' in the number area. Good to see P1 did a major update, that means they're doing something, but If it did change G2 speed they better get working on a LifeDrive update to fix...something, + G2.

    Attempting to download the .sit version (for Mac users) from the Europe site leads to an http error and no download. Is the US version exactly the same updater and could I use that instead? :)

    Nine, for what it's worth the US and UK zips are exactly the same size (no proof, I know).

    Thanks Streaky, but it's the SIT file us Mac users need to avoid ending up with a Windows-only .EXE application when we decompress it. :)

    Update is not on the Australian site yet - should I wait?

    Come to think of it there is no "T5- My Handheld" page either on the Australian website.
    Will the Oz website ever be updated?
