I am totally lost ohmy.gif(

I have an SL4 SimPad with old opie 1.2 on it. hh bootloader installed but whenever I enter "load root" and do a ymodem upload it bails out from minicom 2.3 rc with:

boot> load root
partition root is a jffs2 partition:
expecting .jffs2 or wince_image.gz.
After receiving file, will automatically uncompress .gz images
loading flash region root
using ymodem
ready for YMODEM transfer...
download error. aborting. |

file is from 2007.12 images

in my desparate i even flashed / erased the root partition so now I am ended up with no bootable device at all (bootloader IS WORKING)

Bootloader identifies itself as

Settings on minicom are 115200 (n1 no flowcontrol at all
minicom is called as root to circumvent any acess right issues

I didnt find any way of updating to a newer hh bootloader and especially dunno if i need to do this at all ?

I believe this is the latest hh.org bootloader - you don't need to update it.

If you own a cf card you can try to copy it this should be the easiest way!

What does minicom report in the center as information about the ymodem process?

well it just shows a lot of (approx 6-8) "?" left of the ymodem box where it should show something useful.

Hope this helps you anything I am lost ohmy.gif)
