Not possible really. A few people have managed to do this (its really not easy) but theres not enough memory to run the newer OS satisfactorly. Not to mention its not something that can be done by 99.9% of smartphone users

Someone upgrades spv from sp2002 to sp2003 successfully, and the rest of memory is over 5MB, most of program which run on sp2003 can run on upgraded spv. The version of sp2003 is a beta test copy. hehe.

Ok. I have an SPVX1 (a.k.a canary) a hand me down and it had WM2003 some beta version. I have been trying to go back to the Orange ROM for this but have been very unsuccessful. I have tried the Qtek and Imate and yet not sucessful.

If you know how to do this can you post it. BTW I only have the Boxwave sync cable with me and a laptop with Active sync 3.7.1 installed. Is this possible with these 2 to get the downgrade to the WM2002 ROM ? I am able to get to the Canary bootloader and after that I start the TRRU.exe or the CA....exe but both fail after about 20 seconds. Am I missing something ?

Thanks

in theory that may be possible, provided the current mobile hardware knew how to handle it, and you are nifty with surface soldered components.

Ignoring all that the major issue you'd have is getting the extra memory. Id guess it would be cheaper to buy a c500

Hi everyody. I come from China. I am using the Orange SPV with Smartphone 2002 with version 3.0 (build 13258). Also using the same Chinese model Dopod 515 with smartphone 2003 with version 4.20.0

(build 13237) which free-upgraded from Dopod company last month.I find out SPV show Total Storage 7.05 MB. Total Memory 12.63 MB. And Dopod 515 show Total Storage 8.44 MB. Total Memory 21.81 MB.

I think that's why SPV can not upgrade to smartphone 2003......... ^_^

2003 on 2002 is working really bad (less battery life, less free memory, working slow). I tried to come back to WN2002 but unsuccessful. Now I have BL 2.00-2003. Can somebody tell me how to do that? I have a QTEK 7070.

Thanks a lot!

there are posts on downgrading on modaco, but if you cant figure it out i would suggest its best not to try to upgrade to 2003, its not easy to do, and you dont want to be left with a papaerweight do you :)

That is an old subject and even older that the original post here.

All that link shows is the beta leaked copy of 2003 on the old SPV.

Don't forget the Original SPV does not have enough memory to make upgrading worthwhile.

Later on dopod 515 was released with an increased SDRAM doubling it to a 32MB which was comparable to the HTC Voyager. This increase enabled the operating system to be upgraded to 2003.

Qtek then went one further with the 6080 which doubled the memory again to 64MB but this device does not appear to have been released and depending where you read the info some sites claim it was only 24MB which is more realistic for the device.

Hello,

i bought an Dopod 515 last week (Legends may sleep, but never die ;) ). The WM2003 Rom does only support chinese T9. So a tried to make a backup with a Voyager Rom - unsuccessfull (0%) :cry:

The Bootloader Version of the chinese ROM was 0.93, so I could only backup to the Tanager WM2002-ROMs (Qtek 1.50.9.1 or Orange 1.6.4.10).

Now i've got an WM2002 Rom on my Dopod and can't backup back to WM2003. I tried to copy the bootloader of a E200 with usbterm but the result was negative.

Has anybody an idea where i can get a WM2003-Rom for my Dopod 515 (but without chinese T9).

There is not a 2003 ROM available for the canary unless dopod released an update, but as far as I am aware they have not done so.

The Voyager and Canary bootloaders are not compatable so you could easily kill your phone if you are not careful playing with USBterm.

That means: no chance to get back to WM2003? :roll:
