I bought a refurbished Collie a couple of months ago, and it mostly works like a charm. But whenever I remove the battery or switch the battery lock, the whole RAM is cleared. I realized it isn't normal when I read a "check backup battery" kernel message in my dmesg.

This is not a big problem since I have my root on an SD card, but I'd like to know if there is a way to change the aforementionned battery, where I can buy a new one, maybe some schematics on how to access the old on on my Zaurus... all this.

If anyone already performed the trick, any advice would be welcomed. Thanks alot.

From what I remember of reading the collie source code, the backup battery level is never actually checked and therefore this message is always present.
