How do I perform a NAND backup and resotre on my C760? Can it be backed up on a 256mb SD card or does it require a CF card? Also I only have 128 CF cards. Would that suffice?

AFAIK you can flash the Z with a FAT-formatted SD card, but for CF it doesn't matter if it's formatted as FAT or EXT2..

To be on the safe side I would say use a CF card for NAND backups / restores. A 128MB CF card (which covers the entire flash storage area of the Zaurus C760) should be around the £25 / $45 US / €35


I tried to do NAND backup from SL-C860 to Lexar 256 MB SD Card (factory formated) but I failed. After 20% got answer "Backup failed". I used Backup/Restore application.
Then I bough a Lexar 128 MB CF Card and everything went smooth.
Is it possibly Lexar formats SD to ext2? Actually I was not going to buy CF card since I wanted to have WLAN CF card. So it was additional spending.
Is only way to check format to install fdisk?
