PHEM: Palm Hardware Emulator

PHEM: Palm Hardware Emulator


PHEM (the Palm Hardware Emulator M68k) emulates the hardware of many different models of Palm PDAs. It supports up to Palm OS 4.2 and runs thousands of Palm applications, utilities, games, and hacks.

***IMPORTANT!*** Like other hardware emulators, PHEM requires software in the form of a Palm OS ROM image to run.

Supports:
• Black and white, grayscale, 8-bit, and 16-bit color. It even supports the Handera 330's "High Res" grayscale screen!
• Sound and (for versions of the Palm OS that support it) vibration.
• Multiple different "sessions" emulating different Palms - multiple models, multiple versions of a single model, or both.
• Using your device's storage as a virtual expansion card.
• Network communication using your device's network connection (wifi or cellular), including network HotSync.
• Cutting and pasting text between the emulated Palm and your device.
• Hardware keyboards if present on your device.
• "Skin" files that precisely mimic the appearance of particular Palm devices.
• Most Palm "Hacks".

PHEM is based on the Palm OS Emulator, a development and debugging tool originally created by Greg Hewgill and later developed by Palm, Inc. Full source is available under the GNU Public License.

Notes on permissions used:
• "Access Fine Location" is used to pass GPS information to the emulated Palm, only when explicitly activated by the user.
• Network access is used to allow the emulated Palm to access network resources.
• Storage access is used to access ROMs, applications, and to emulate memory cards.

Recent changes:
1.43
• Important stability bugfixes - Deadlock condition identified in original POSE code, upgrade strongly encouraged.

NOTE: Future sound improvements will require Android 2.3 or above. Android 2.2 support will be sunsetted.

Clié This app is awesome and aside from hotsyncing (still need to tweak it some more) is the best palm os emulator I've used. All I really want is Sony Clié support and everything will be golden

Excellent if you don't need Garnet Supports PalmOS 4.0 (including HotSync, even over the Internet) via ROMs (which you must obtain elsewhere)! However, that does limit you to no Web browsing (since 4.0 only supported Web browsing via proxy services that are no longer available) and no color high resolution screens. If you can live with those limits, it's a great system. Developed from the Palm POSE emulator that PalmOS developers used to test their software during development.

Excellent! Runs very well, considering the large number of variables involved in matching different pieces of Palm and Android hardware. If you run into problems, trial and error may reveal the best combination of ROM and Palm OS for your devices (so, for example, I found that a Palm m130 ROM with OS 4.1 was very buggy on my Nexus 7, but a Palm m505 ROM with OS 4.0 works like a charm). Very intelligently implemented for Android users. Love the ability to use either Graffitti or the Android keyboard. Also love the ability to save different emulation sessions, so I don't have to keep reloading apps and data each time. Great value for a negligible price. Thanks, you've made this old Palm user very happy!
