I know this works with the Jornada 680 as I've done it myself. I can't speak to any other devices specifically and I don't accept any responsibility for anyone buggering up their CE device by hacking the registry.

Having said all that... the hack is:
Change the value from 0 (zero) to 1 in the registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Apps/PocketIE/use16bppDIBs

Then do a soft reset of your device.

As with any Registry hack - BACKUP BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING!!!!!

I'm not sure why the key would not be there on some devices... I don't recall specifically where I found the hack for the 680 and I'm not sure if there are some other devices that it will work on. Maybe it is just relevant for Win CE Pro for Handheld PC's.

Sorry that I can't be more help...

Hi,
The key is for the H/PC Pros only. It does not work on the Pocket PCs or Palm-size PCs.
