    I'm sorry to hear that the memory upgrade isn't progressing. However, I'm getting used to regular resets to clear up the leaks and keeping open apps that I know I'll need all day. Opening and closing the same ones is causing more memory problems that solving them.

    This little device is a great phone and I had forgotten how much I needed that side of my Smartphone.

    My wallet is still prepared to invest in the upgrade, however.

It still would be nice if they could accomplish the memory upgrade.
    Don't put the burden on developers. My concern is that if everyone but Palm makes phones with 64MB of RAM, then the money is building apps that will have that footprint in mind. There may be greater functionality built in that will make the size an issue only on the 700w -- or that it will need to quit more other apps. While I'm glad that quitting is no big deal, it is a time issue and a pain to do. I know having had Smartphones prior.

    Well, that doesn't sound to hopeful. Guess I'll stick with the i730 for now.

    Hi all,

    as i promised, here's how to change memory config on WM2k5.
    The dump shown in the picture is a HIMALAYA SD card OS ROM dump, so offsets are referring to SD dump including header.
    NOT to a nbf or nba or any other file.

    Use the standard ways to obtain such dump.
    If you don't know, how to do it, you'd better quit reading this... )

    Highlighted in blue is "Program memory", red is "Storage Memory".
    The values are in hex/little endian of course.. )))

    Hey LWesson!

    Do you still have the memory chip you took out of the 700w laying around? If you do can you tell us the numbers on it?

    Thanks!

    Yes, we would be embarrassed if we did something like that. But we didn't.

    The chip removed was a Samsung K4S56163LF 256Mb chip.

    We put in an Infineon 512Mb chip.

    Hi PPCTech. Did you get my note about the ROM modification that needs to be done to see the full 64MB RAM? The ROM needs to be extracted, a simple modification made in a hex editor and then the unit needs to be reflashed with the new ROM. The guys at xda-developers.com have all the tools to do this easily.

    At least now that question is put to bed once and for all!

    Someone got Linux to boot up on a Treo 650. Running Linux should be able to help determine if the 32mb limit is a software or hardware limitation.

    Thanks for watching! We'll see you next week.

    Give me one that doesn't work. I want to give it a try. All of the programs I am using including Fizz Traveler (with today screen) work just fine.

    Amen. This stuff that nothing works because of the limited memory is bull, plain and simple.

    Did I miss something here? I thought you were taking out a 32MB chip and replacing with a 64MB chip? Where did you get 256 and 512 from?

    256 divided by 8 is 32, so that means it indeed has only 32?
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
