Finally HP released a complete ROM update for the iPAQ H5400 series Pocket PCs which comes around with a lot of improvements and the long awaiting Wireless Pack support for the iPAQ GSM/GPRS Jacket, I've written about and promised you some weeks ago! :-)

In detail the version 1.11 fixes and adds the following problems and enhancements:


  • Improves Virtual Memory utilization for both WLAN and Bluetooth Software
  • Updates Expansion Pack manager driver to support GSM/GPRS Wireless Pack
  • WLAN Software and driver improvements:
    • Improves WLAN performance
    • Adds LEAP authentication client support (requires firmware update)
    • Reduces memory footprint
    • Improves IP address connection
    • Fixes lockup caused by multiple instances of UI
    • Adds support for NDIS OIDS to simplify connection manager
    • Allows co-existence between the WLAN utility and a Wireless connection
    • Fixes profile bug in WLAN for first time setup
    • Updates Fingerprint SW to prevent potential security problem
    • Adds support for Multicast
    • Enables connect with a WLAN Access Point that supports both 802.11b and 802.11g (requires firmware update)
  • Updates Battery driver to improve battery performance
  • Updates ROM lock code to prevent ROM image from being written over improperly during debug (Developer issue)
  • Updates SD driver to support additional cards
  • Updates the bootloader to enable automatic flash mode entry during a ROM update


  • Adds SDIO support
  • Updates IPSM driver to latest version
  • Updates iPAQ Image Viewer to latest version (display large picture files)
  • Updates iPAQ Backup to latest version
  • Updates iTASK to latest version
  • Updates Bluetooth Software (UI and Bluetooth ActiveSync improvements)
  • Updates Nevo Software components to enable web download

This ROM version also contains the following previously released updates:

  • iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 Series ROM Update v1.10
  • iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 headset volume improvement
  • iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 Nevo Update
  • iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 Battery Driver
  • iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 WLAN Driver Update

Unfortunately I can't test the Wireless Pack right now because I have to give away my H5400 for some days, so maybe anyone else with a H5400 and Wireless Pack can update us if it works proper now?
