Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

How about this for a very interesting discovery that I made today? While looking through the documentation that RiXSTER thoughtfully included with "Spv c500 Windows Mobile 2005 Wm5 Upgrade Rom.rar" I came across the details of how to use TeraTermPro to connect to the SmartPhone/PocketPC via USB. But even more interesting was another link that lead me to http://www.xs4all.nl/~itsme/projects/xda/tools.html  

Essentially these tools will allow you to store an image of your current Phone as a ROM, pull the ROM apart, modify it, put it back together, whatever... 

As it says:
A collection of tools to do many things to a windows CE device via Activesync/RAPI.
These tools should work on most CE devices, tested on Ipaq, XDA(Wallaby), XDA-II(Himalaya), XDA-IIs(Blueangel), MDA Compact(Magician), i-mate SP3, i-mate SP3i, Yakumo P300, MPx200, Voq, Mitac Mio, Mitac Megas. with PocketPC 2002, PocketPC 2003, Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, Smartphone 2002, Smartphone 2003. ( wince 3.0 and wince 4.2 )

So here's a quick look at some of the extras available:
dumprom   romtools   serial-protocols   tools   versions   wallaby-bootloader   coldboot   databases  flashfile-formats   kernel-build   kernelinfo   memory-map   platformbuilder   rom-layout   xda-controlpanel   xda-rsupgrade osimagetool   gsmpart   ril   rilhook   rilpatent   cradle 

If you are like me and even vaguely interested in going beyond the Warranty of your SmartPhone/PocketPC and messing about with it (or playing with the possibility of upgrading it to WM5?) then this appears to be a real treasure trove of tools that you can have hours of fun messing with?
And if that isn't enough to keep you busy? have a look at Windows Mobile Smartphone hacks 

Enjoy  ;-))
