Dear all,
I´ve been trying to upgrade my Simpdad SL4 but now it got stuck... I first wanted to try to upgrade to a newer windows verson, although in the end I would prefer using linux

What I´ve done so far:

loaded loader_bl using serload. That went, as far as I could tell, as it should.

then I tried loading wince image on the simpad using serload. Ever since it gets stuk.
When I boot, it doesn´t get past the multicolored checkered screen. Using hyperterminal, I get the following message:

PBL V2.4 20.07.2001

Calling Monitor

Boot from Flash   'f'
Boot from Net     'n'
Power Off         'o'
Erase PSM+Registry'p'
Exit              'q'
Erase Registry    'r'
Erase Flash       'y'
Soft  Reset       's'
Print Fab-String  'w'

Now, whatever I try from there, nothing works. all option do work, btw, except for exit. But for example 'w' results in the fab-string being printed.

Is there a way to get back to some working version of my simpad or progress straight away to a linux version?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Ronald
