    Official K-JAM Thread, start posting your hacks, tips, tricks, and impressions

    Our k-jams are just arriving, lets start combining the hacks, tips, and a few pictures in this thread. Accessories as well....

    Starting off, how to improve your performance from the guys over at Pocketpcdabui see their thread for more info.

    Drivers Start your Engines…

    So to Modify your KJAM customization first of all you have to go get your self Total Commander for PPC

    http://www.ghisler.com/pocketpc.htm

    You should get the “ARM/XSCALE/PXA” Version

    Direct Link http://ghisler.fileburst.com/ce/tcmdpocketarm.exe

    So Install it on the Beast..

    Run the App

    So at the top of the screen there is an Input box containing a “\”

    Just Type in “\Extended_Rom\”

    And now you have access to the Extended ROM

    ***************WARNING*****************
    Don’t go playing with the files as this could rally mess up you device

    Autorun.exe
    Default_Backgammon_PPC_IMAM001.CAB >>> Backgammon
    Default_CAAVPPC_IMEI_Wiz_range.CAB >>> THE DREADED ANTI VIRUS STUFF
    Default_CAB-shortcut-CDL-08Sep05.CAB >>> Clearview PDF
    Default_cdl_wwe_version.cab >>> Some Imate stuff (Harmless)
    Default_ie_view.sa.cab >>> Some Imate stuff (Harmless)

    Default_SmartDialing_enable_0915_signed.CAB >>> The pretty Dialer and smart-dialer stuff
    Install_Tsk.exe >>> This Installs all the “Default_” Files
    Setup.exe >>> This allows for Selection of the “Operator Settings”

    These are the “Settings” which is not needed at least in the GULF STATES

    KPN_Nederland.CAB
    MTN_SouthAfrica.CAB
    O2_UK_Contract.CAB
    O2_UK_PAYG.CAB
    Optus_Settings.CAB
    Orange_Nederland.CAB

    Vodafone_AU.CAB
    Vodafone_Nederland.CAB
    Vodafone_NZ.CAB
    Vodafone_UK_Contract.CAB
    Vodafone_UK_PAYT.CA

    I made a copy of all of the above to an SD card BEFORE DOING ANYTHING else (NoBackUp…learned his lesson……Harry Potter !!!)

    So I Reduced my ER to Just

    Autorun.exe
    Default_Backgammon_PPC_IMAM001.CAB
    Default_CAB-shortcut-CDL-08Sep05.CAB
    Default_cdl_wwe_version.cab

    Default_Imate_PPC_SA_V5.5.03.cab
    Default_SkypeForPocketPCnonxScale.CAB
    Install_Tsk.exe
    Setup.exe


    How just simply Delete !!!

    Don’t forget to hard reset let the imate setup run (will not only install the stuff you did not delete) and try out your new toy..

    from pepperk (and I agree)

    I will post the software link because not sure if its on handango.com

    It is an amazing "must have" app that transforms pocket IE into a useful browser....not perfect but close with all the features. Im just not sure it is going to be compatible with WM5 don't think they did much with IE though. If not compatible then I assume the programmer will update it.

    from farzonalmaneih:

    How to turn on vibrate mode:

    On page 11 of the Wizard manual, button 15 (Comm Manager) lets you do the same it seems.

    "Press to start comm manager, press and hold to switch to vibration mode."

    from Mashie:


    Here is the process for hard reset,
    press Comm button + voice button (the 2 top side buttons) + soft reset, then hold the D-Pad up for about 10 seconds...

    Bootloader mode is
    Camera button + voice button + soft reset.

    And don't install MS voice command until there is an update for WM5..

    If you are having problems with connecting the k-jam to your computer, you might want to try ActiveSync 4.1 to update the USB drivers.

    download ActiveSync 4.1 (valid as of Sept 30 8am CST)

    What changes:
    Feature: Improved USB support
    Feature: View Exchange Server Synchronization status on your PC
    Feature: Synchronization of pictures in Contacts on your mobile device with Outlook
    Feature: Easier to identify friendly device names
    Feature: Synchronization over a Bluetooth connection with your PC
    Feature: Integration with Windows Media Player 10
    Feature: Enhanced user interface and enhanced new partnership wizard
    Feature: Synchronize Internet Explorer Mobile favorites to a Windows Mobile-based Smartphone
    Feature: More robust synchronization with Outlook
    Feature: Configure synchronization settings prior to first synchronization, including custom

    Speaking of ActiveSync, I installed 4.0 and noticed that I can't change the settings of my Tasks. So, they all sync and I can no longer say only sync past 4 weeks, etc. I wonder if 4.1 corrects this? Hmmm...

    I know someone else posted this, I just can't find the post. Sorry, don't know who to credit. from the manual p. 11

    k-jam power off, not sleep mode...

    Press to turn off your device temporarily and switches
    the device to sleep mode; press and hold (about five
    seconds) to turn off your device completely.
    When your device is in sleep mode, you can still use
    the phone function to receive calls; however, the phone
    function is off when you turn off the device completely.

    A site I came across specifically for Windows Mobile 5.0 software compatibility issues
    WM5FixSite
    Search by program type which is also a lot easier than sifting through threads on here.

    Can I just say this is what I love most about WM and these devices in particular. 5 minutes after I get my phone, I am going to hack up the extended rom and get rid of all that extra crap!!
