because i wanted to erasy ALL data from my 5600 and the Format option didn't work I make a mkfs.ext2 /dev/mtdblock3
mkfs.ext2 /dev/mtdblock1

after a reboot nothing works. The Mail-LED blinks and if i connect the power suply the other LED also just blinks.

I think tha on mdblocks1 was the root system an am mtdblocks3 the home files.
What have I done and is there hope for my Zauri?

I've just noticed that you are looking for a broken 5600. Before you buy one you should check one last thing. There is a 'small' possibility that you have another diagnostic menu on mtdblock0... please try to open it by pressing 'D'+'P' keys and doing a hard reset. I can not remember what all is on that menu... it 'may' have a restore option?

Let us know if you can access it?
