How Do I Update My iPAQ h5450 To Windows Mobile 6 or 7?

My OS for my IPAQ h5450 is Windows Mobile 2003. I would like to change the OS to WINDOWS MOBILE 6 or 7

Matt NJ answers:

Unfortunately, you cannot.
The hardware required to run Windows Mobile 5/6 has higher requirements than Pocket PCs designed to run Windows Mobile 2003.

On top of this, without a cooked ROM package specifically designed for your PPC, you would be left without driver support, leaving your touchscreen, microphone, wifi radio, etc. useless.

*Note: Windows Mobile 7 is not set to release until 2010, and will certainly not be compatible with your iPAQ.

Sorry for the bad news.
Hope this helped…
