HP iPAQ Pocket PC h3800, h3900, and h5400 series - Pocket PC 2003 Upgrade

Getting started
The Pocket PC 2003 Upgrade is designed to erase and replace the current ROM image and any existing ActiveSync partnerships including all user data and programs on your HP iPAQ Pocket PC and in the iPAQ File Store. To save personal data for later use, you must copy it from your HP iPAQ Pocket PC (including from the HP iPAQ File Store) to your host PC using ActiveSync Explore. Users who do not customarily synchronize their personal data using Microsoft Outlook ("stand-alone" users) should install Microsoft Outlook from the Upgrade Companion CD on their host PC and synchronize their personal data. The personal data can be transferred back to the HP iPAQ Pocket PC after the ROM upgrade has been completed and a partnership between the host PC and the HP iPAQ Pocket PC has been established.
