Try as I might, I have not been able to get the qtopia-addressbook_1.23_arm.ipk to work on my C3200 with Sharp's 1.02JP ROM on it. The package installs and seems to put files into place, however when I go to run the addressbook it never launches. I am doing this so I can continue to use the stock addressbook, but have english sorting.

Does anyone have any idea's?

Ignore me, I searched for the wrong thing. There is a thread at:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t20787.html

However there are no answers. Surly someone else is using a C3200 with the Sharp ROM...Or is the Z truly dead?

As you can see from my signature I use Cacko 1.23 full on my 3200. The sharp address book works with no problems for me. I also use the lite version on my 860. The sharp address book works fine for me there too.

I'm guessing that you are using the Sharp Rom and attempting to use the ipk from the cacko feed? The cacko rom uses patches from various sources, mainly from Tetsu's kernel?, and this might be were your problem lies. I mean that the cacko package might rely on the patched kernel that cacko uses.

So one choice for you is to flash the cacko rom.

If you search the forum there was a thread in which the problem of English sorting for the address book was successfully solved on the sharp roms.

I seem to remember that Trisoft have/had a fix for this also.

A crude fix, assuming your addresses are in Outlook, is to export them to a csv file and to sort ithe addresses in a spreadsheet. Then import the sorted file and synch with the zaurus. That worked for me before going to cacko removed the issue for me.

I originally used cacko, however I had to find an alternative because the Datebook in cacko is not the one that came with the 3200 stock ROM. The one in cacko suffers from a bug that Sharp patched where some of your reoccurring appointments will not show up when synced from Outlook. So I have gone to the stock NAND load and have applied Figlabs conversion overtop, which is by far the best solution to really use this thing as a PDA. I am very happy with it.

Hi bit_bucket,

I thought Rob at Fig Labs had 'hacked' the Address Book in his conversion to allow for english alphabetical sorting. If you're having problems, give Rob an email and he may be able to correct it. He may be able to intergrate the recent Sharp patch if that is the issue

Additionally (and SEARCH THE FORUM FIRST - I do not vouch for my memory rolleyes.gif ) I seem to remeber a problem in runing two forms of the address book. Someone corect me if I'm wrong. unsure.gif

Cheers,
AdamD

in theory you could (but check!) install the C3200 rom on the 3100, then copy off all the files, install Cacko and patch it with the improved versions off the C3200.

we can only hope that Anton Maslovsky finds the time to do a new release of cacko with some updates.
