One of the things that really bothered me about the Eten Glofiish M800 is the touch-sensitive buttons.

Did you do a ROM upgrade with a cooked ROM recently and it bricked your device? That usually happens when you flash your device with a ROM that was not meant for your device.

I am not really much of an email on the go kind of person, or a user who enters a lot of data at one go with my device. That’s because, I do not have a QWERTY keyboard and all those SIPs out there just don’t cut it for me to write long emails. That […]
The last ROM for the X500 came out in May 2007 or so and since then, there has not been a newer one available. It looks like ETEN has stopped developing ROMs for the X500 which is why I have decided to take matters into my own hands. I have decided to cook my own […]

There seems to be a common problem that Vista users are facing when it comes to ROM upgrading.

Playing YouTube (or any flash video for that matter) has long been a disadvantage for Pocket PC users. Even with Windows Mobile 6, Flash support is not built into the operating system, which is a shame considering how more and more sites nowadays have flash video embedded in them.
