so I got my first zaurus on Friday, and found the original ROM was pretty lackluster.

So, I "upgraded" to pdaxii13, but I really really didn't like it.

Now, I am trying to restore my zaurus back to the original Sharp ROM so that I can try to install the beta version of Cacko. I followed these http://figlabs.com/restore/ and hit a wall. I finished the first part (involving restoring the NAND), however, I can't seem to get the second part where I need to restore the hard disk image. I think the problem is that the commands to be written in the prompt are written to read the file from a CF card. I'm using an SD card. Could someone help me, and tell me how to modify the commands there so that it pulls the information off of an SD card instead of a CF card?

THANKS in advance!

the Z is, seriously, quite hard to irreversibly screw up ("brick"), only generally a hardware fault will do that.

doesn't pdaXrom also repartition the flash, so you need to do that too? doesn't it use uboot as a boot loader, I think a NAND restore will fix that.

the first time I repartitioned my HDD I got seriously scared I'd fubared but after a bit of hacking it came back together. There's a patch somewhere which fixes Sharp's scripts to remove the dependency on the "recovery" partition.
