I flashed my HP hx ipaq 2790 pocket pc this am.
Before flashing the ROM I have backed up everything(the whole lot including the windows, program etc) using sunnysoft backup manager.
The ROM was flashed smoothly, no problems at all.
Then, I decided to restore my back up file using the same software again.(The backup file was in storage card.).
I installed it on the storage card and ran the "restore" from there.

The restoration took place smoothly, and finally prompted me to reboot.
I rebooted it, and now it doesn't go beyond the HP logo screen.
I did soft/hard/clean resets- no good.
I can't synchronize, can't access the device at all.
Does anyone has a solution to this problem?

Welcome to Geekzone... You should not restore a Pocket PC backup from an older version over a new one, because it can bring conflicts with different settings. If you can't hard reset the device, the best option is to send it for servicing.
