I have a Cassiopeia E-125 and was wondering if it's possible to upgrade th OS. I like the way it runs and don't really want to buy a new one. But most of the new software out there for Pocket PC won't run on the version i have.
Unfortunately the Casio E-125 is not upgradeable, as the MIPS VR-4122 chip is not flashable the way most ARM chips are. Same applies to the SH3-based older HP Jornadas. These devices were not intended to be upgraded, unlike the original ARM-based iPAQ models. Even those don't upgrade far, as the 16MB ROM store is insufficient for later OS versions.
You can find quite a few softwares still which support the older Casio models. I still have a Casio EG-800 around, which my daughter uses, and it gets updates to a few programs now and then. Media applications such as Pocket Artist or GSPlayer, some games, the great reader µbook (just updated again this week for all processor types), even a lot of Today plugins (Dashboard always has a MIPS version with every release) are still supported. What applications do you need, or what types? Perhaps we can help with links if you name the functions you'd like.
