Hi,

First of all, apologies for my bad manners in cross-posting this message here after posting it in the Cxx0 General forum as well. I saw that that forum isn't very active at all, so I decided to take a bet and to repost it here, as this is the most active forum.

In 2003, I bought my C860 as an aid in my Japanese studies. I stayed with the original Sharp ROM and installed kanjidic + a few dictionaries. With its recognition of kanji written on screen, it was a dream dictionary. However, a few years later, I hardly had anything to do with Japan anymore and reflashed the ROM to some sort of Linux. It boots and gives me a login prompt. I can log in as root without a password, but I donīt know which ROM or version it is.

I'd like to flash it back to something similar to what I had before. The only requirements are: a good dictionary (extendible with more edict files), recognition of hand written kanji. I don't require networking, X, whatever in particular. Just give me back the greatest Japanese-English dictionary on earth

Any recommendations on which ROM to flash with ? I can find the right application soft myself after that, if standard Zaurus apps work on that ROM.

Thanks in advance,


Peter.

Oh, another point. I can install the NAND images from the Trisoft website, but all the files including the backups have been translated, so Japanese doesn't work. Are there also Japanese NANDs around ? Otherwise, I'll try the Cacko JP conversion.
