Cloning (Ghosting) a Windows Mobile 5.0 based handheld

Posted on 2006-05-08

Hi all,

I have a need to build custom-configured handhelds using software produced by my company.  Right now the process is to load the application and perform a bunch of configuration steps.  I'd like to find a way to either "clone" or "ghost" these or package all of the changes together so the process can be significantly cut down in time.

Any ideas?

Thanks all!

    Theres no cloning for Mobile 5.0 yet. But you can use a Backup utility and just restore to the other handhelds.

    My mistake - I had used it in a project, but that was with WM 2003 SE devices. Sorry.
