first thing I tried was opening it with 7zip

didn't work

next thing I did was to install WinCE 6.0 Dev kit (VS 2005 + WinCE 6.0 Platform builder), but the Platform builder doesn't recognize the bin


hexedit doesn't show any obvious character trails..... most (or actually, every WinCE 6.0 bin I've seen so far) contains B000F as the first few characters, and requires more than just one .bin file ... so ecatco has their own program that runs on boot-up to decompress those bin...

I'm thinking JTAG is the only way (unless you manage to crash the GUI with some bad formed PDF)
