If I am flashing a new rom, let's say pdaxrom, and suddenly the power got cut off and the battery runs out, what will happen to my Z (c860)?
Will I brick it? Or it will be ok after I flash it again?
thx~~

You can't start the flashing process with your Z unplugged tongue.gif

anyone feeling brave? I'd love to know as well.

Playful, amiable satire to follow:

while you're at it, let me know what happens when you attempt a flash in a convection oven at 425F... no wait... with just the bottom two rows of the keyboard cast in warm custard.

Unless you are feeling particularly suicidal, the sensible option would be to make sure you have a well charged battery and plug into the mains first...

A well charged battery is going to last at least 30 mins (a lot longer than that) and I've not come across any flashing processes that last more than a few minutes.

Since the basic software will not be touched, I figure you would end up with a non-bootable ROM, but you should still be able to get into Service Mode and reflash the ROM.
As said, it will refuse to flash without a AC adapter, but I can imagine a pet, kid or wife stepping on the cable and ripping the plug out, while somehow your battery is dead as well, just as you're flashing a fresh ROM smile.gif
Apart from that, there's always the full NAND restore function, which is, as far as I know, completely hardcoded in some chip, which enables you to flash a NAND image just like on the 5500, by holding a few keys.
