WinCE/PocketPC Restoration for HP/Compaq iPAQ

You can load an original WinCE image using the handhelds.org bootloader. Once you have that installed you can reload the original firmware. There are WinCE(ftp://ftp.handhelds.org/feeds/wince/). You will need a serial cable or cradle. An USB connection will not be sufficient! For details see the WinCE Restoration Instructions(http://handhelds.org/projects/wincerestoration.html) and the PocketPC Restoration Instructions(http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/RestoringPocketPc). See these notes for extra steps on H39xx or H5xxx(http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/RestoringPocketPcOnH39xx).
