I'm trying to run my SL-C1000 without the battery. I got it to start up via D+B while connecting the AC power, then logged in as root, and rebooted the system (by typing 'reboot' at the root command.) It then proceeds to reboot and load Cacko, but as soon as it finishes loading, I get a window saying "Change the battery" and then the system shuts down.

I'm wondering if there is any possible way to actually run the system without the battery. Is that "Change the battery" message something that does not exist in different ROMs? I tried using the Sharp ROM also and I get the same behavior. But perhaps this is due to the fact that Cacko uses the Sharp ROM extensively.

Has anyone actually gotten their Zaurus to run without battery?

Thanks in advance!

Hello all,

I currently try to revive my Z (C-3100, Cacko 1.23) I haven't used in a while and run into the same problem. I can only get it to start using B+D, after issuing a reboot the device starts, but turns off directly after loading the OS. I can get into the maintenance mode using D+M, but that does not really help. I tried reflashing, but for that I'd need to get into flashing mode (Enter and On), but that does not work, the Z does not respond.

Any ideas? It was working perfectly last time I used it, it just ran out of battery in the meantime.
