Hey guys, i know it's a bit old now but i just got a smartq v5 while gathering old stuff at work (IT dpt) and got this little neat device, android and ubuntu parts work fine but windows CE doesn't boot, even after 10mins and more. Any advice on how to update the firmware ? reinstall windows CE ? main site is down and third party sites don't have the drivers on their servers.

I'd love a sort of windows and linux device on the go, i just need to fix that baby up...

PS : i tried pressing volume down + power to update but i think it only erases the android partition

You're welcome, Ghostcatcher64.

Nice to see a topic about the Smartq device, especially being an "old" device. :p

When I saw videos of it booting into linux 10 years back I really thought it was neat for what the device was capable of then.

I hope your repair is successful.

Welcome and see you around the forum!
