Members of the Clie Users Group on Yahoo have figured out a way to upgrade a Clie PEG-N7x0C to the level of a Clie PEG-N760C running Palm OS 4.1 using FlashWrite and a backup copy of an N760C using JackSprat. Step-by-step instructions are available from the Palm Boulevard Message Boards and from Palm InfoCenter’s Forum. Kudos to Rune for taking the first plunge! =) Relevant files may be downloaded from the ClieUpgrade Yahoo Group. Pictures of the upgrade process may be found here while the ROM file may also be found here.
