Here are two detail step-by-step records of the memory surgery :

I can't tell. Blowing up the pics make it look like he's got scotch tape on there for some reason. Ask me again in ~21hrs or so.

... My guess is the tape is used to protect the hinges from scratches when turning the screen.

Don't think so. The teflon pads on the screen are closer to the swivel point than the tape. In fact one picture clearly shows rub-marks on the chrome from them.

Nice to see that it is possible to change the drive in the Z easily. Can't wait for MD prices to start coming down now!

I wonder where the guy from that that first link got his zauri . I really hope that he wasnt the one who broke the plastic by the hinge with the SHARP tag on it.I could almost understand breaking one by mistake, but there is a chunk missing from both of them in the same spot (the left hand side of the sharp tag)! ph34r.gif

AH HA!

That explains the tape in the earlier photos.

Those hinges aren't broken. You can see the tab sticking out of the dark patch that activates the screen closed switch. What's going on is that he's covered *all* the chrome on the Z with scotch tape, probably to protect it against scratches when he's monkeying with the motherboards. The tabs look broken because he's cut the tape around that area so it won't interfere with the switches. He's used 4 pieces of tape, 2 on each side, and the seam we were looking at earlier is where they're joined together. There is another piece going across the sharp logo, with the cut out around the screen switch.

You are totally correct.I couldnt see that it was the spot without tape till I copied it and blew it up. laugh.gif

Interesting idea but I've had bad luck with Scotch tape on electronics. On my Palm V I put Scotch tape over the grafitti area to protect it, which it did. I've never been able to get it off and was unwilling to try chemicals or sharp edges to assist.

On my Zaurus 5600 I put tape around the edges of the flipscreen to keep it from scratching the case any worse than it already had (no real help there!). I've never been able to get it off. I *did* try chemicals on that -- let's not talk about the results. blink.gif Fortunately I had detached the flipscreen before doing so.

For the 6000 I bought a nice leather case. cool.gif

FYI again:

The guy in the Chinese forum says the scotch tape is just to prevent fingerprints and sweat, not out of the fear to scratch the paint.

Yet he insists on using the scotch tape of the highest quailty that will leave no stain even after a long time.

He also comes up with an interesting calculation of the costs incurred: buying and swapping just the case (despite the fact that the dark case is not available for sale for now) is actually more expensive and time-consuming than buying a brand new C1000 and applying the surgery. A C1k/C3k Mod is still worth quite a lot of money in auctions.

On plastic chrome? It isn't like fingerprints and oil are going to damage it, and the tape looks worse than the fingerprints would. rolleyes.gif

But of course. Nothing but the best for the Z smile.gif

Worth a lot in auctions? Does this guy do these things wholesale and sell them on eBay or something? I'd love to see what a black 3000 goes for ohmy.gif

Can't confirm that. At least the swivel has left no marks on the hinge of my C860. Some keys on the keyboard got a bit chipped though tongue.gif (already used more than 1 year). So, why bother?

I can't agree any more with you!

No, he keeps the Black C3000. That's what his C1000 is for -- just to be skinned. So instead there may be a white C1000 poping up somewhere... laugh.gif

Sharp really seems to have opened a can of worms with this one! smile.gif I'll have to actually go through with swapping mine soon, or I'll end up being the last one to do it tongue.gif

It's unlikely that a company will ever start selling cases. It is only really practical because these are identical machines and all you have to do is move the motherboard from one to another. If a third party started making cases you'd have to swap the screen, they'd have to supply the keyboard keycaps, etc. Plus, it isn't like doing a playstation case swap - PDA's are such intricate little beasts that it will probably be too expensive for someone else produce something that isn't crap.

And no, I don't ever expect Sharp to produce empty cases themselves.

Hi all,

Just for information, you can get most bits of the C3000 case here:

Zaurus shop in Japan

I expect the black C1000 case parts to turn up some time soon.

Mind you, when you add up the (4, I think) parts you need it's not going to be very cheap.

I've bought from these guys recently and everything came quickly and neatly packaged.

Well, I'll be damned. Never expected to see that. I didn't see the keyboard in there, but I just skimmed through it. Very neat site, though.

Oh well. I wanted 2 Z's anyway =)

thanks for the link to that great site! I want one of those PDA stands for the 1000, but I can't seem to order it on the site (I don't read japanese, and it doesn't seem to work through babelfish)

hmm... anyone have more info on these stands?
