I'm trying to install OZ (OPIE) onto an SL-C700. I've copied initrd.bin, updater.sh and zImage.bin onto a FAT16 CF card and gone through the update procedure. The update finds the card, load the files and reboots. I remove the CF card during the reboot process.

I've tried this procedure several times and each time I get a white screen of death.

Any suggestions?

For want of a better suggestion, try installing this: http://people.bath.ac.uk/enpsgp/Zaurus/bl/...-r0_armv5te.ipk

and then call it from the command line (or over ssh).

I have a feeling that your problem is not backlight brightness, but contrast, and bl won't alter this I'm afraid (though it ought to be possible to do so somehow).
