Re: Dopod 838 pro

You have to upgrade it from 5th version to 6th. First, you wonít get any support from your device provider if something goes wrong. Secondly, you might lose some pre-installed applications. And lastly, youíll have to find the firmwares online and some of them are homemade concoctions which donít always work, so be careful and do some reading before you go ahead with this.
You can now go to this link for the whole procedure.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.


any help is appreciated thanks
