I came across this link while I was searching for a fix for a problem my freind was having with anold i-Mate?K-Jam.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=367534

The question I have is:

(1) Is it safe to load this on your ROM to try it
(2) Am I breaking any licensing law (There is?a legitimate copy of Windows Mobile that shipped with the device)
(3) Has anyone tried this

It should work ok, in general they do some good modifications. If it crashes your PDA though you lose your warranty and would have to pay to have it fixed.

Is it against the license? Yes, it is.

Good luck with that, make sure you read the wiki on your product first, as if you brick it, you'll lose out, and I tell you what it is an addiction flashing!

I got addicted to ROM flashing on my K-Jam and went through quite a few ROM's. I found WM6 was "flasher" but in general it was very difficuilt to find a stable WM6 that worked with the K-Jam. With almost all ROM's I found there were issues with parts of the K-jam hardware or software. If you read the instructions carefully you should have no problems with flashing and it is pretty easy once you have the process sorted.

I went back to WM5 in the finish as it was too much hassle trying to get the K-JAM working as it should with WM6. I now have a Nokia and it is quite refreshing to have a phone which goes for months at a time without requiring a reboot!

Cheers,

Matt.
