Update on 07-06-06:
Attention - It seems that the module needed is not a C09 but a C19 - Speculatrix is inquiring on this. Please do not purchase a C09.


Hello

As I promised long ago, here are some instructions to add bluetooth to your SL6000 Zaurus.

1. Purchase a WML AHR C09 from Segor.de
2. Open your zaurus
3. See the attached picture of a Zaurus without Bluetooth, compared to a Zaurus with Bluetooth
4. Solder the chip accordingly. Note : the long line and the big X are for the antenna. The AHR C09 has an antenna built it, so don't bother.
5. Install bluez, start with:

hciattach /dev/ttyS2 csr 115200
hcid -f /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
sdpd

This will hopefully start bluetooth and lit the blue led.

Then:
hcitool scan
to try to find your cellphone
sdptool browse cellphone_mac_addres
to find the serial port (usually 1)
rfcomm connect 0 cellphone_mac_address serial_port

this way /dev/rfcomm0 will be your cellphone

6. Enjoy the cool hack, and wait for the next upgrade (921 kbps bluetooth)

Neuroshock, do you remember if there were open slots for two flash chips or just one? I am thinking that if we want to do the full upgrade to 128 megs we will need to buy two chips instead of one. Thanks.

Yes,

There are two open slots for memory. There is a memory chip, an open space with surface mount contacts for another chip, another memory chip right next to that, and then another open space with surface mount contacts for another chip.

So originally it looks like it could have been populated with four chips instead of two. I'm not sure of how they originally planned to integrate the memory chips...It might have been that they had four "sockets" on the board with the original intent to have (4) 16mb chips but that by the time they reached actual production it was cheaper to purchase (2) 32mb chips. Ultimately the REAL question will not be if two more memory chips can be mounted on the board, but rather whether the memory controller can address the larger amount of memory. (Hopefully someone already knows the answer to this for sure.) If nobody knows right now then there's only one way to find out- mount 'em and try it.

Dirk,
Thank you VERY much for replying here in this forum- I have no clue as to why you didn't receive the PM- Not the first time that problem has occured for me though, very frustrating.

But at any rate thank you VERY much from all of us for replying so quickly and with such great information and pictures. Right now you're my hero, as you're the only person I've been able to verify that has completed this hack and has a working finished product. Hopefully the rest of us can follow you shortly, but a HUGE thanks for blazing a trail for us.

One thing I can add- to expand upon Guyhelm's description of the blue LED, even if you install the blue LED you have to have a clear plastic channel (kinda fiber opticish) to pull the light from the LED to it's appropriate position on the case. There is a black "dummy" version of the piece I'm talking about, (same size and shape as the clear pieces that go to the other 3 led's), that currently occupies the slot where we want a new clear one to be so the blue bluetooth led would show to theoutside of the case. I guess they're using is as something of a placeholder.

My two ideas on the best way to make/achieve a factory quality piece to replace the "dummy" is to either:

1. Buy a 6000 that has been "bricked", unless the whole device has been crushed there is really nothing that a dead 6000 could have done in it's death throes to ruin the piece we want. Then just steal the clear plastic piece from the 'bricked' 6000 and install it in place of the dummy and voila! A factory finish.

2. take the black "dummy" insert and make a mold of it with play-do or wax etc. then remove the insert and use the mold to cast a clear version- normal elmer's glue, possibly hot glue from a glue gun, etc. would make a good molded finished product. I've used this process in the past to make factory looking components for laptops etc. It takes time but if you're interested in doing a first class hack, why not go all the way?


Progress is being made- now hopefully my 6k can be raised from the dead so I can continue to participate. =\

Be Safe,

-NeuroShock
