I figured I'd post this to the forums & clear up some misconceptions. First off, if you look back in the thread on the tkcrom w/ home on sd thread, I had posted back in November that I had modified the tkcroms v1 & v2 to use the modified 2 gig sd module and hadn't had any problems testing them. I also modified the stock sharp rom 3.13 the same way. I didn't really do anything special here. All I did was take the /root/etc/rc.d/rs.sysinit script from the TKC V2 ROM & put them in the other 2 roms. I also just swapped out the sd module for the newer one. Extracting the rom on a linux box is pretty simple & just copy'ing some files then doing a mkcramfs on the extracted directory. Nothing special. biggrin.gif I just wanted to have that stuff in rom so I didn't have to add it after the fact. I'm attaching the initrd.bin files here so that way anyone can try them out. I also used the same prep-sd script mentioned in the tkcrom thread, version 5. I didn't modify it in anyway. Last thing. I've read in a few of the threads about trying to use the 2 gig sd module on other Z's. I don't recommend you try this. unsure.gif It's not going to work. If you searched the forums, you'll notice that the 5000/5500 Z's don't have a "standard" sd slot like the 5600 and above. That's why OZ versions prior to the 2.6 kernel had to use the same sd module that either came w/ the stock 5500 rom or the modified one mentioned above. I have 5 different Z's and I like them all, but I'll hardly claim to be an expert. cool.gif I hope the files will be useful to someone. If you have any questions, feel free to add to the post.

Just to make sure everyone understands why there are 2 sharp 3.13 initrd.bin files. One only has the newer sd module to support 2 gigs and the other one also has the modified rc.sysinit script from the TKC V2 rom. Figured I'd give people a choice. biggrin.gif I don't really get to mess w/ my 5500 as much as I like, but while I was re-doing these init.rd files today, since chrisl had asked for them, I started looking at thing I wanted to update again. When I was testing the files today, I made the mistake of not backing up my already modified rom. Oh well, just gives me a reason to do it again. I'm planning on taking the tkcrom v1 rom & updating alot of the command line stuff & the timezone info. Any opinons what people would like updated on this? I'll try to do it when I have time & upload it as well.
