Dell PDA oddity

For anyone else out there that took part in short lived PDA revolution a few years back and ended up with the Dell Axim brand, here’s a bit of information that might be of use to you.

I’ve had very few problems with my PDA in general. For about 2 years the device even managed to be moderately useful. At one point I was trying to use it to store all of my contacts and appointments; but as time moved on the slowness of the device became frustrating and I stopped using it this way. After that as I was working on my first CDFree” I started using it to playback the scratch tracks so I could practice singing along to them. This worked quite well up until I won my iPod. After that, the short battery life and the PPC software couldn’t compete with the ease and flexibility of the iPod. Next as I began working on some music videos, the device became a medium to share my work with others. As it stands now, it’s mostly just a toy used to play a few simple games while relaxing or travelling.

Recently the x30i decided it wanted me to align the screen. Normally this is fine, but in this case, the problem was that any attempts to complete the alignment failed. I was stuck in an endless loop that I wasn’t able to get out of. No reboots or software updates made any difference. Fortunately I wasn’t the only one to have this trouble, as eventually I found a link to a tool that would bypass the systems need to do this and restore access. The good people at Code Factory provided THIS LINK.

So anyone else out there with an old Dell PDA that hasn’t yet gone so far as tossing the device into a garbage salad and has trouble with this “Align Screen” issue, give this a try…
