I will post this solution on all forums I visited. I could be useful for some other desperate person who's ipaq 910 is bricked o that wants to change the language of the device.
I consider myself a noob on this, I don't know how to support any other iPaqs, I don't know how if this will work on all iPaqs. I just fixed mine, I'm happy about it, and I feel I have to share this experience. Sorry if you have questions that I can't answer.
This process also works to change the language from anything else to English. I'm not sure if it will work 100% due to hardware differences, but it worked to change it from Spanish firmware (original one) to English WWE
First, I followed the procedure specified by Paloma on the link:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=459123
or here (on gsmkhmer.com)HP iPAQ 61x, 91x Stuck @ Bootloader Solition
Now, I will re-write the procedure created by Paloma, to a more clear version:
1- What's needed:
- iPaq 910 :p
- Necessary software
- In case you want a different firmware, go to the HP site and download it. I just found the English one, I don't know is that available in other languages.I downloaded the English WWE version.
- I used Windows Vista SP1. It should work on Windows XP.
2- Decide which file you want to use:
- Download the necessary software from these links:http://rapidshare.com/files/201661070/Fixed_bricked_iPaq_910_-_Change_device_language.zip
- If you want to use my file, go to Part 4, if you want to edit your own in your desired language, continue reading to edit the file.
3- Editing the downloaded file from HP site.
- Download the file from the HP site. The link I used was: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?
- Execute the install. Notice that after installing, it will run the update utility.
- Go to the folder that the installer left the files, in my computer it was C:\iPAQ\SP40181, then you will notice that the file FLASH.NBF is there
- From the necessary software download, look for XVI32 and execute it, then open the file FLASH.NBF
- Click on the menu "XVIscript" then "Editor"
- In Editor, type: DEL 3432 then click on the "Execute" button
- It will ask you to save the script, it's not necessary
- Then Save the file as Flash.DIO.
4- Transfering the file FLASH.DIO to the iPaq
- Now that you have your Flash.DIO, either using my file, or the one you edited, you need to transfer it.
- From the necessary software package, go to DNW, open DNW.exe, [Configuration] => [Option], change [Download Address] from 0xc000000 to 0x3000000. You can keep the application open.
- Rename FLASH.DIO to FLASH.nb0
- Bring your Device to "Download image" mode. To do this, press the OK + VOLUME DOWN + Reset
NOTE: Please notice OK button is the one below the track wheel, on the right side, not the one in the QWERTY keyboard.
- Plug your device to PC. I used Windows Vista drivers and I did not need to use other drivers. In case the drivers are needed for you, then manually select driver to install (files are in SEC folder, on DNW)
- Back to DNW application, click on menu on [USB Port] => [UBOOT] => [UBOOT] and select Flash.nb0. After this, you should start seeing a progress bar, indicating that the file is being transfered.
After the transfer is complete, the screen will display # signs for the progress while the firmware is installed. It takes a while. After it's finished, the iPaq will reboot and do a Clean Boot by itself. It takes a while again. After it's finished, it will start to boot and you will see the green Windows Mobile 6.1 boot screen.
I hope I made it easier for anyone out there. Give the credit to Paloma for providing this tool. At the end I just followed the instructions from the post, bricked my iPaq by using the wrong file, but now it's fixed and I changed the language
