PDA: Upgrade ROM pre DELL AXIM

PocketPC Thoughts prináša informácie o vydaní ROM verzie A02 pre AXIM.


Update je k dispozicií na DELL supporte.
Opravuje:
– monitoring stavu záložnej batérie,
– zmenené time-outy podsvietenia displeja kvôli šetreniu baterky,
– vylepšenie nábehu OS (po reštarte),
– vylepšený navigačný aplet tlačítok,
– vylepšený driver CF modemu,
– podpora C1 krkokovania procesora Intel XScale.
Posledné je vraj zaujímavé, pretože podľa zdroja nové Aximy majú PXA255 procesor.
K informácii je aj rozsiahla diskusia.
Popis inštalácie:
Install
1. Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled
R58550.EXE.
2. The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to
extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R58550. Write down this path so the
executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3. The Self-Extractor window appears.
4. Click OK.
5. After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6. Click the Start button and then click Run.
7. Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R58550 in the Open textbox and
then click OK.
8. Follow the on-screen installation instructions.

There does not seem to be any real speed increase.
in another thread Sslixtis posted these benchmarks for an Axim (which I assume had the old ROM)
CPU Benchmark-PXA250 X5
Interger arithmetic-5011
Heap management-8681
Floatingpoint Arithmetic-8403
Graphics Benchmark
GDI graphic routines 1-1641
GDI graphic routines 2-1350
GDI graphic routines 3-1639
My results after the new ROM are:
CPU Benchmark
Integer arithmetic 5077
Heap Management 8450
Floatingpoint arithmetic 8441
Graphics Benchmark
GDI graphic routines 1 2192
GDI graphic routines 2 1293
GDI graphic routines 3 2103
Lower is better as I understand it. I don’t completely trust the bechmarking program, it looks to be written in VB.

Pre istotu ešte postup zrejme správneho inštalovania update:

1. before you run the update do a complete backup using activesync (click tools, backup/restore, click the box for full backup and then click backup now.) not the built in one.
2. install the update and make sure your pocket pc will not shut off in the middle of the process. ie…no auto off!!!
3. reconnect PPC after you have finnished with the upgrade and screen alignment and when activesync asks you to create a partnership… choose „Guest“
4. restore (in activesync click tools then backup/restore. click the restore tab and click restore now. youll get an option to choose which restore if you have more than one in there.).
5. when restore is done… soft reset and reconnect.
6. activesync will ask you weather you want to combine items or replace them. I always choose replace with what is on my desktop (gotten doubles too many times)

Ak ma napadne upgradovať, tak to urobím :-), prípadne mi napíšte, kto ste to už urobili.
