I have placed an order with Segor.de, who speak excellent English, to buy two modules for 6000. I shall fit one of them to my 6000, and if it goes well I shall offer to do someone else's... or sell the module on at cost. I shall photograph the process and post results. More to follow... wish me luck!

The WML-C09-AHR is available in our stock,
price is unchanged:

1-4: EUR 39,00 per piece (including german VAT)
5-9: EUR 37,00 per piece
10+: EUR 35,00 per piece

Freight charges to UK by "international letter" are EUR 7,00.

Hello

Since I'm at fault for your Zaurus misadventure (I just didn't measure the exact spacing on the chip - it was looking identical to the WML), let me know if you want me to send you a spare 6000 motherboard. The display connector is dead, and the fuses have been replaced by shorts, but you could certainly use the ram chips and everything else. It works fine in a 6000 without display.

Sorry,
Guylhem

that's very decent of you! I undertook the modification fully in the knowledge that it was risky, and I still think I can use the WML-C09 modules even if I have to use flying leads... breaking my 6000 was pure bad luck and/or incompetence on my part.

I've got two promising options at the moment, a key one being a well known OESFer (I wont say whom as he/she won't want inundating with requests to mod zauruses) who might be able to replace the BGA devices for me... if these fall through I will take you up on your offer, but in the meantime don't be discouraged - if we can pioneer zaurus upgrades and make them easy to do, then maybe we can foster a generation of upgraded zauruses and thus gain critical mass for people to develop better software for them!

Once it's working again, I still intend to upgrade my 6000L to a W, when I know for sure which module is literally plug and play!
