When i bought the simpad, there was opie in it, and i want'd Windows CE, so I followed instructions in http://opensimpad.org/index.php/Linux#Rein...mens_bootloader

After i typed "load flash 0" i sended via ymed Pbl-simpad-1.0.tar.gz

And i did get something same like that.

boot> set override = 1
setting param <override> to value <1>
boot> pflash 0 0x40000 0
boot> load flash 0
loading flash region flash

Then i reseted simpad with reset button on the back, and now it doesent turn on, sometimes it will but blank screen, and i must keep power putton down.

What happened?

I did have hell lot of time to get the parts for the lumberg/serial connector and now, all for nothing.

E: Is this kind of jtag cable compatible without modification?

it seems that we need to rewrite the howto.
You have to unpack the tar file first. It contains a loader for Cl4 and SLC class devices. You unfortunate flashed the tarball directly. With jtag you should be able to flash the right loader to the pad.

The cable looks ok, but I don't know how it is wired. So I cannot guarantee that it will fit. You also need to solder the connector to the pad.
