One thing worth trying is installing PocketDOS on a compact flash card on the Jornada 720 (or any other ARM HPC) and then insert the card on the SigIII, hex edit the binary and check if it runs

You can also try PocketDOS on Sigmarion I & II, which I am going to do real soon.

Testing PocketDOS on Sigmarion II now.

I copied the CABs to a CF card (since I don't have the serial sync cable). Then run the CABs directly from the card. Install the CABs in this order:

(1) PocketDOS.mips_hpcpro.CAB
(2) PocketDOS_DOSFS.mips.CAB
(3) PocketDOS_UTILITY.CAB
(4) PocketDOS_HELP.CAB
(5) FREEDOS_100.CAB





Interestingly I seem to feel that Sigmarion II runs a bit snappier than Jornada 720. I am going to find out more by running some simple benchmarking tests, which will show up as part of my upcoming comparative review of Sigmarion II and Jornada 720.

Since Sigmarion II can run PocketDOS, Sigmarion I will also do without issues.

I attach the MIPS files here for anyone interested to try it out.
