Hi all,
now that Sharp has released the ROM used in the SL-6000 on DevNet, I think that should be good to backup it as soon as possible on ZUG here, as we know the "reliability" of DevNet.
I would like to try pdaXrom now, and maybe help the team to get a proper release for the SL-6000, starting using the Sharp kernel, and updating only the initrd.bin. 8)

I think the instructions posted on DevNet are for complete NAND update, thus is there the risk that if something goes wrong you get a brick?
If it is such a case, is there a safer way to install initrd.bin files?
Also the encsh.c script seems not working with the updater.pro file included in the zip archive for the SL-6000. Should it be safe to use, together the initrd.bin file only? Or is it better to use an updater.sh file from other ROMs for other Z models? :?

Happy hacking! :wink:

Just an FYI for anyone happening to look here. It may be obvious to some, but it wasn't to me until I just tried it.

If you have the expansion sled for the SL-6000, you can't use the CF slot in the sled to do NAND backups/restores.

You can have the sled attached while you're doing it, but the card you backup/restore from must be in the primary slot.
