warning u may kill yourself by swallowing the palmtop and i am not to be held responsible, its your own stupid fault. and also on a more serious note, the files i am shareing are only to be legaly used if you have baught them. i am not wanting to be responsible for shareing illegal files.
ok now that the boring stuff is over lets begin
this is a instructible on how to get the most out of your palm device. there is only one over i can find olnine that covers more than two mods so this is going to be better than anything else online and more helpful
to get everything working be prepared to spend many days without sleep.
now i will be useing the tungsten t3 for deminstrations but this is not limited to just the t3. most things will run on older devices but i dont think much will run on newer devices because they totaly changed the OS. still no harm in trying right?
this instructible will be devided into diffrent mods on diffrent pages. so some may only be a few words long, so sorry for so many pages but it makes it easyer for me and you
what do you need for this?
- a palm device (preferably t3 or earlyer)
- a SD card
- a computer
- a usb cradle or other way of installing the files
- the cd it came with (if you lost this im sure i could copy it for you)
the installer program for transfering files to the palm from your pc
- winrar for unziping any necercery files
also if you need any help running or installing anything just ask and i will be more than happy to help. i spent may days getting some things to work, and other things i have still not sorted out properly.
Step 1: The Red LED Hack (t3 Only)
did you know the tungsten t3 was made with a red LED but it was never used in the hardware?
this hack allows the red led to flash whenever it acesses the SD card
simply install the program then run it and it is done. very simple
Step 2: Ljp
its called LJP which stands for little john palm
- gameboy and gameboy colour
its a very nice emulator with almost no glitchs or freezes and im pretty sure it will work on most palms
heres where to get the latest update
to install simply install the file to your palm and run it with a SD card in ( this will create the folders) then open the SD card on your computer and paste the other files that also came in the rar file, under the ljp folder
Step 3: Apple ][ Computer
the install is pretty easy: just simply install the file. the hard part is getting the disks on there. for this you need to have downloaded some apple 2 disks of games. then drag the disk image to dsk2pdp.exe and it will turn the disk image to a pdp format that you then need to install on your palm. then you can run it. a bit confusing at first but once you find out how to do it, it becomes pretty easy.
here is the website with the latest update:
Step 4: Bejeweled
i dont think legally i can share a copy of this so sorry fellas you'll have to spend your money on this one. however if they stop selling it i guess i can hand out a copy. also there is nothing stoping you search for a patched copy (which does exist if you search enough)
i dont think i need to say much more on this one, just get it.
Step 5: Filez
another basic install, just install and run.
Step 6: Free42
another easy install.
here is where to download it
Step 7: Frodo
the install is easy and for the disks simply put them on your SD card. not under any folders or anything.
there are lots of diffrent settings and other controls to setup for this, and if you are running it on a t3 you might want to underclock it because it runs a bit fast
here is the download site
Step 8: Dosbox
well here is a dosbox for your palm. it can play lots of dos games and other apps.
some people have even got windows to run on it. but i only have a t3 and dos box is a bit glitchy on a t3. i would say more about it but really i have only just found it and havent really had a chance to play around with it yet.
here is the latest copy and instructions, have fun
Step 9: Ppsx
its a basic install and just have a sd card in so it can make the right files and then put the rom files in.
here a youtube link of it working:
Step 10: TCPMP
Step 11: Doom
the files are often being uploaded so i wont bother posting my ones on but just download from this site and follow the instructions and you will be playing doom on your palm in no time.
also search on that site for the other fps games to install on your palm
Step 12: SDHC
here is the website that explanes everything, and be aware t3 users that the t3 has to use the big card app and not the normal one.
Step 13: Teal OS
i never used my palm until i installed this. i use to find the palm the most annoying and poorly designed thing ever. but after changing the OS i loved it and now often use it.
again sorry i think legaly i cant upload the files but if you cant buy it anymore email me and i will be more than happy to give you the files.
here is a video of the OS in action.
