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.

Some missing details: Jack's screen shows "Zynergy" at startup, and we're both a little worried that flashing the wrong ROM could result in a bricked Z, given what we've seen in other threads here and on the web.

Is it safe to flash Watapon on top of Zynergy, does it overwrite everything?

You're sure he can flash from SD? Someone else who doesn't own an sl5600 told him that he had to use CF. Maybe they got 5500 and 5600 mixed up?

thanks,
sdjf

Yes, it should be okay to flash the sharp rom. I believe the Zynergy is one of the modified sharp roms. Kind of a dark picture of a girl on startup right? I think I remember having problems with the package installer on that ROM. In my experience with my 5600 it is nearly impossible to brick it as flashing the rom does not overwrite the "bios" of the device. So if you flash a failed OS then you can just reflash until you get it right. NAND flashing on the 3100 and so on are what can brick it but that's not the way we flash with the 5600. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Well, it will overwrite the "OS" of the device which includes all your default applications but it does not erase the home directory until you format. So once you flash it you need to go back into the flash utility and format it to erase all your settings and home directory so you get a clean boot up.

Yes he can. the 5500 you can not, but the 5600 you can.


Have fun flashing, don't worry, you can't brick it. Just make sure the file names are exactly how they are supposed to be, it is even case sensitive. Filenames depend on the updater.sh file you use so they can be different.

That is so awesome news! smile.gif Yeah, dark picture of the girl at the startup. And yeah, installer problems here. So that means I can use the Sharp ROM without fear of bricking it. That's the best news I've heard in a while.

I think selecting format is part of the procedure for flashing roms anyway, right? So home directory does go bye bye. I base that from this.

I'll keep an eye on this one. I guess I'll use the Sharp ROM and see how that goes. smile.gif Thanks a lot for the response!!! biggrin.gif
