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.

LG L6 phone failed The phone was unable to receive or to make call in real time (10ish seconds delay) after PHEM was installed. The phone also had suffered long delay while power up. DELL Venue has no such issues.

Physical keyboard I loved palm. Thank you for the great app. However, I am having problems with phones with physical keyboard. ( NEC Terrain+ Moto ProPlus) For both, numbers and Cap keys did not work. With Nexus5 it was beautifully worked. Are there any work around ?

Great little emulator Runs fast and has accepted every old Palm program that I've tried. Took me a while to find a suitable ROM but they are out there.

Yes! I still miss the Palm days, but this is an excellent fix. Many will find this to be a fun app, but it has finally allowed me to run Ultrasoft Money on Android. I still use Microsoft Money, and the fact that I can hotsync wirelessly means that I can sync updates both directions. There won't be many people that have this ability as Ultrasoft is gone, but other apps will enable a bit of added usability. Excellent job by the developer. Hoping for Clie firmware to be completed for color 320x320!!
