That works... I did it before for someone else... I believe I still have the base NAND.. but it it set to the default which is i believe 53mb root and the rest user space...

Let me know... I'm planning on going to beta4 again! this weekend... and it is sunday... so hopefully Holovector can hook you up...

Cool.
Sounds like Holovector is gonna get me setup, but thanks and have fun with Beta4!

I am glad your Zaurus is alive again!
But what is this Fn-D-M menu?
I tried it on my C3100 and it brings up the same menu as D+M, except that the title "SERVICE(x/3)" is written in black instead of red.
The menu seems to contain the same items.

Interesting, didn't know about this.
So the D+M menu is stored in flashable NAND and the Fn+D+M is stored in real ROM?

Ok pdaXrom is installed on my 1000. I'm going to do a NAND backup now then cut it to CD. Where and when do you want to meet. I'm in South St. Vital.

From what I've gathered it is an emergency Diag Menu that can't be over writen by a NAND restore. Interesting hey?

Hi,

I've the same problem as Antikx with my C1000. So after bricking it, I waited until the next morning and tried Fn-D-M (simply pushing D-M does not work). Nothing happens; the restore diaglogue doesn't show up. Just to check the CF, I tried it again with my C860. D-M worked instantly on the C860, but Fn-D-M doesn't work at all.
Is there any chance that there is a key combination for the restore command other than Fn-D-M?

Edit: The main problem seems to be that I cannot power up the C1000. Pushing OK before and while plugging in does not help.

Hmmm... strange.
Are you pressing Fn+D+M while the battery case is open, then tapping the rest button and then letting go of Fn+D+M. If I remember correctly the Zaurus needs to be plugged in while you're doing this.

Wow, this was really scary ... Leaving the Zaurus without battery for some days, pushing Fn-D-M, then hitting reset with the battery lock open really did the trick. Thank you, Antikx. My C1000 is back to life again ...
Lesson learned: Stay calm, take your time before writing off your Z -- and don't meddle with operating systems you don't really understand. "A cobbler should stick to his last."

Cool. Glad to hear you're up and running.

Staying calm is a good idea, I agree, but not meddling with an OS you don't understand... that's just no fun at all! wink.gif
Myself and a few others have proved that you can't really brick a modern Zaurus, no matter how hard you try... so go nuts! (disclaimer: I'm not talking about hardware mods)
I'm still learnig to take NAND backups before messing around.
