I recently flashed my i-mate with rom 1.7.2 from clubimate and now the bluetooth works flawlessly but IRDA is utterly terrible, it either screws up completely, times out, or simply does not work..

both sending and recieving,

Sharp GX15 -> No go, everything just fails.
Sagem my-v55 always fails first time, MIGHT work second time if all is good.
imate smartphone2, works better than most but still screws up requring a soft reset all the time.

Options set to "recive all incoming beams"

have also tried "legacy receive"

My aged QTEK 1010 and Harrier all work fine.

has anyone ever flashed the "other" roms into an i-mate?

i have O2 and QTEK but I am too scared to try.

I can't comment on the i-mate Pocket PC Phone - I've never used infrared, most of the times is Bluetooth only, if not the USB cable.

As for using other ROM, I don't recommend. There are some fine changes between models, and even if they look the same, the internal hardware may be different.

Cheers, Mauricio, I am baffled by this. it would be the last thing I would expect to fail.
It's my travelling device. I use it to share files (ringtones/voiceAMRtones and images) to and from older phones and as a test bed, Lucky I dumped the old ROM, back in it goes I think. :-(

or.... my excuse to by a PDA2k.
