After the previously released Bluetooth fixes for the i-mate PDA2K Pocket PC Phone Edition, i-mate finally released a complete ROM update for its Pocket PC Phone Edition (also known as O2 Xda III/IIs and T-Mobile MDA III).

According to i-mate, this ROM build provides some significant improvements in radio, audio, Bluetooth and operating functionality.

The upgrade will erase all existing information on your device. It is strongly recommended that you synchronize your Contacts, Calendar, Mail and Tasks to your PC before upgrading your device. On synchronization, hard reset the device (Press the Power ON button and perform a soft reset simultaneously to hard reset).

i-mate provides two language versions for the PDA2K:

World Wide English
ROM version: 1.22.00 WWE
ROM date: 10/22/04
Radio version: 1.06.00
Protocol version 1337.38
ExtROM version: 1.22.162 WWE

Arabic Build
ROM version: 1.31.00 WWE
ROM date: 12/13/04
Radio version: 1.06.00
Protocol version 1337.38
ExtROM version: 1.31.112 WWE

While these ROM updates are supposed to fix most of the current issues, users already reported that not all issues are fixed. Anyway - as always - the update is recommended.

Please note that this ROM updates are available for i-mate customers only. While they might work with the O2 Xda III/IIs and T-Mobile MDA III you need a valid IMEI (device serial number) to get access to the i-mate download page. Also I'm not recommending cross-updates.

Please be patient if you try to download the ROM from the Club i-mate site, right now they have a higher server load than normally which can cause connection drops or unavailability of the site.

Cheers ~ Arne
