Which rom should i use with 5600? i tried gpe, opie and sharp roms.

Opie freezes everytime and when i try to install a package it gives linkling error...

with gpe works better then opie i want to use that but when i open package manager its closes package manager after the update ipkg and i didnt change the clock.

Sharp rom is very slover then opie and gpe.

Hi. My friend gave me a Zaurus SL-5600, albeit an incomplete package. I have the device though and I have encountered problems with security permissions and all that although the original owner ensured me he did not tweak such things.

I posted at Tyrannozaurus and they recommended me to post here and they also advised me to flash the device. I'm not sure what my ROM is running at although I may be lead to believe that my Zaurus runs on OpenZaurus.

I don't really know what ROM to use though. Here's the URL to my thread in tyrannozaurus.

http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/?q=node/784#comment-2045

Please help me in trying to figure this out. Is there a way to revert my Zaurus to the Sharp ROM or should I pick one of the other roms out there?

Can I use SD cards for flashing my rom or do I need a CF card? Thanks all.

Jack

Yes you can use SD cards to flash. The rom you want depends on what you like. I used the watapon rom because it had all the modifications to the sharp rom that I would end up doing anyway if I was on the sharp rom. I personally stuck with the sharp rom because everything just worked with it. Openzaurus never became stable and probably never will. It's up to you though.

Thanks for the swift response. I've read conflicting reports on this. But I suppose there are more SL-5600 owners here. I do suppose that it's possible then.

Well, I'm not sure what ROM to pick. I presume best choice is one that is stable and that allows me to install and uninstall applications. I want to use my Zaurus primarily for Surfing, Writing docs, e-mailing, and instant messaging. I've read at the first page of the thread that Sharp ROM is the most stable, but I believe the ROM this Z came with is OpenZaurus or something. Not sure though since it has a 'zynergy' splash screen at boot up.
