Just wondering if any changes have happened in the last couple of years.

The PocketDOS website is still there but half-broken and hasn't been updated in nine years. They clearly aren't selling any more, but I appreciate I can't ask for cracks or anything (though of course I've looked for them and found sweet FA).

I searched on here and found someone talking about a port of DOSbox, which I grabbed but which didn't work (guessing the binaries weren't for my architecture - StrongARM).

Is there any way of (reliably) running DOS on a Jornada?

Ignoring the DOSbox port, there were only ever three, PocketDOS, XTCE and a alpha port of BOCHS ( https://www.hpcfactor.com/qlink/?linkID=108 ). PD and XTCE merged and BOCHS CE was abandoned.

As far as I am aware, you can still buy PD though

pDOSBox requires gx.dll. There are tons of threads here on this:
