Open your 50g and clean, bend or adjust the feeler/contact back to normal.

Hacking the 50g ROM is something only about 5 people on earth have ever done, after years of learning SysRPL, Assembler, ARM Assembler, etc. Even HP stopped patching the 50g ROM because it is so complex and full that even the tiniest change wreaked havoc and lead to many more problems. It simply isn't something one could explain through a Forum discussion.

Maybe have a friend in the US buy a 50g and mail it to you, it's likely less than $100 total. If the h/w tweak doesn't work, it's really your only option.
