    Hey I just picked up a refurbished ipaq rx5915 and I was wondering if it's possible to put WM6 on it? I've done a lot of googling and I can't find any info except that HP has no plans to offer an upgrade.

    So I was wondering if there was a generic version I can install that will work on my ipaq?

    thanks

    Very unlikely. Embedded hardware is much more finicky than general-purpose hardware, and so the entire OS has to be written specifically to run on it. WM6 is almost certainly written to run on newer hardware than what your iPaq has.
