New RPL for 39GS
I have recently acquired a 39GS for very little money from China. Now I am wondering if anyone has managed to successfully run new RPL on a 39GS and if so, where can I download the firmware?

Cheers,
Harald

39gs is a fully supported target on newRPL, let me know if you have any troubles.

RE: New RPL for 39GS
Thanks for the pointing me in the right direction!

Now I have a new problem. I downloaded the connectivity kit for the 39gs from the HP website. The newest version is for Win XP 32 bit. I have Win8 and apparently that is unhappy with the drivers. Any Ideas? Has anyone succesfully flashed from Win8?

Cheers,
Harald

Went through the same pain (for Windows 7) and found a newer version. Alas it is @home... and don't remember now where I found it. If nobody gives you the right link I can search this evening.

Maybe this will help you. If it runs on Win 10, it should work on Win 8:

Install HP 39gs CK on Windows 10

Did you disable the check for unsigned drivers? By default Win 8.x and 10 won't let you install drivers that aren't signed. You can defeat this, however:

Disable Signed Driver Enforcement

No, I did not. And unfortunately the guide in your link does not help me at all doing it. Apparently the German Windows has a completely different menu structure :-| So I will need to hunt down a German guide...

I found a German guide and was finally able to install these drivers! Fingers crossed there are no more stumbling stones on the way to an HP39gs with newRPL Smile

RE: New RPL for 39GS
Thanks to everyone for the hints! I now have a 39gs running newRPL!

"All" I have to do now is get my head round how it is operated.

Cheers,
Harald

Great! Congratulation! Smile

I am still waiting to get mine shipped from China (it is Chinese new year, and they stand completely still for several weeks).

Welcome to the newRPL gang! May the Wiki be your guide. Be vocal if things on the wiki or newRPL are not to your specs, comments are always welcome.
