HP has released a ROM update for two iPAQ h6300 series models. However, this doesn’t include the version being offered by T-Mobile in the U.S.

This update fixes a number of bugs, and also makes some enhancements. Most of the improvements are related to these devices’ wireless networking.

An update to their GSM software is supposed to improve call handling and reception, while new Wi-Fi software should enhance reception and roaming. Updated Bluetooth software was designed to improve headset compatibility, and allow these devices to better handle re-connections to headsets.

HP iPAQ h6300 The ROM updates for the iPAQ h6340 and iPAQ h6365 can be found on HP’s web site. They are, of course, available free of charge.

It is not known when one will be available for the iPAQ h6315, the version being offered by T-Mobile in the U.S. Those who have attempted to install this ROM update on a h6315 report that it is not possible.

What’s a ROM Update?

The ROM is where the operating system and built-in applications are stored. Changes made to the files in ROM are permanent and will survive the device undergoing a hard reset.

Updating the ROM will erase everything that’s on the handheld, including the contents of the File Store.
