and how?

dear japke, please update your profile and add your device information. (see my sig.)

the only update i can find for N100 is Update 1.57.00. hope it's what you're looking for.

Thanks, but that is not what I wanted.. v1.57 is already installed

I want to install normal version of WM5 to Loox N100, since installed OS does not support various software (I-go, OZI, games.....)

Loox N100 is a PNA device, Windows CE is well hidden and not accessible without hacks.

download this CAB file and follow the instructions: MN6-Update.CAB

• Format your SD card and use a PC card reader to transfer the CAB file to the card
• Place SD card in Loox N100
• If you saw a 'Wrong Image' message, carry on. the two download bars should open at the bottom of the screen and the CAB file will be downloaded
• Perform a soft reset and you should see the Windows page.

you may do it by downloading ActiveSync and using USB cable.
you can go back to factory settings by doing a hard reset.

for more information about customizing Loox N100, use the following url:

Thanks, but I already know that.

The version of Windows CE 5 installed on Loox in CORE EDITION. What I want is STANDARD edition.
That's why most of PDA programs doesn't work on it...

probably, there are some .dll files missing.....

i'm afraid it's not possible since as i said in my previous post, Loox N100 is a PNA and not PDA. however, you may find other ways to make it work like a PDA. if so, it may be appreciated by other members if you share your experiences.
