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.

Can not get IR to work I took the chance and bought it hoping that IR was supported. Maybe it's just my rom but don't waste your money if your looking to use IR

Good as toys The emulation ran too fast on Galaxy Note 4. In the calendar app, pressing the arrow key will make it jump several days forward /backward. Looking forward to updates that can simulate left and right arrow key.

A trip back in time... What a joy it is to finally be able to use my favorite classic Palm OS apps and games on Android. Multiple session saving and Graffiti support are fabulous additions. Well done porting this over. Simply amazing.
