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:

Oh BTW another observation is when i go to sys info i cant see the kernel version. I go to the DP + Reset menu and do a NANA checksum and this 2 files are somewhat diferent from the one registered by the system
kernel1 and kerne2
another test tell me there are two sectors damaged in the NAND, are this related with the test? anyone here knows?
thanks
