Did you install the PdaXRom boot loader? If so, you will need to remove that before going back to Cacko or any other ROM for that matter. As I understand it even a NAND restore will not remove the new PdaXRom boot loader. I couldn't figure out how to remove the boot loader after you have installed it, which is why I haven't tried the new PdaXRom betas. So, I don't know how to help you if that is the case. sad.gif

A description of what you have done up to this point would really help in trying to give advice.

Not true. I tried r121 and wanted to roll back. I downloaded the NAND backup from Trisoft and did a NAND restore. Worked just fine and got be back to almost new. Trisoft has done a nice job with their english ROM. Darned nice of them to make it available as well as a great quality guide. The instructions are all on the same Trisoft page as the NAND backup. If you need step by step instructions, download their manual.

To get back the original boot loader do this:
1) put a copy of the originan NAND BACKUP on a CF or CD (something like SYST<model>.DBK). If you do not have one you can get it from http://trisoft.de/en_downloads.htm
2) if your pdaXrom emergency system is still working boot to it (press OK while power on), if you do not have a working pdaxrom emergency system go to step 5.
3) insert the device where you have the nand backup and cd to where ever that is
4) nandlogical /dev/mtd1 WRITE 0x00000000 0x000DBFFF <your nand backup>
replacing <your nand backup> with the name of the original sharp nand backup.
Your done with just the boot loader and other flash menus ... mut not the OS yet.
5) you will need to create a modified updater script and encode it.
if your emerg. system still works it will be much quicker ... if not try this:

Write an updater.sh like this


#!/bin/sh

PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:$PATH

DATAPATH=$1
for file in $DATAPATH/systc860.dbk $DATAPATH/SYSTC860.DBK; do
if [ -e $file ]; then
echo "Backup $file"
nandlogical /dev/mtd1 WRITE 0x00000000 0x000DBFFF $file
break
fi
file=""
done

reboot
###############################################

Replace the nand backup file name with the appropriate one for your model,
save it as updater.sh and encode it with "encsh -c updater.sh".
If you do not have encsh google a little becaus I forgotten wher I got it from.

put your encoded updater.sh and the SD/MMC/CF along with the nand backup and reset the device (unplug battery and power supply).
hold down the "C" and "D" buttons and insert the power supply.
Bothe leds should light up and stay lit for some 20 seconds or so and the the device should reboot (but if you do not yet have the OS installed I guess it will do nothing yet).
