While I'm running a badblocks scan on my 512 SD SanDisk card, I am currently looking for the best SD cards to get and where to get them at. I believe the 512 SD SanDisk card is good, and wish to keep that for other uses. What I'd really like to do, however, is get a SD card that is durable and can last through multiple read/writes: since I wish to use the SD as my / dir.

I've heard that Japanese made cards and Panasonic cards seem to hold up. However, other than that, I can't find really anything to indicate where I can:

a) find a reputable online (or offline) retailer to purchase cards from (at the best price possible), and
cool.gif what brand & make of card I should purchase.

If anyone could give me some direction, I'd really appreciate it.

I don't know if anyone came up with a solution yet, but I was wondering if anyone figured out how to get the sound recorder on the 5600 to work under an OZ rom (particularly one of the more recent series)? I would like to really utilize the sound recording feature, as I've found it useful to me in the past.

Hi All,

Seeing as I am interested in freeing up some of my pocket space, I am interested in looking for a belt-attaching case that'll fit the 5600. Would anyone know of any cases that may do the trick -- I'm not all that picky in what they're made of, as so long as they are durable and serve the purpose.

Thanks All!

Last night I flashed my 5600 with the lastest build of OZ 3.3.5. While most of it seems functional enough (and from what I saw, far superior to Sharp's default apps), two problems sprang up.

1. Whenever I did something, text (as if from a terminal) came up from the bottom from the screen. It seemed to push the gui up, although when I went to tap on something, like an applet (in its original place), it still came up.

2. The timeclock is reading as if I was back in 31 Dec 1969. It does seem to increment, however, because I'm in the First of January -- 1970!

If anyone can help with these two problems, I may be on my way to a working OZ 3.3.5 on the SL-5600!

I'm presently developing what should be a simple bash script that creates random wallpapers for the QTopia desktop. Instead of issuing commands to restart the desktop via qcop (or killing and starting the launcher via command line), I would like to simply refresh the background so that it reflects the newest wallpaper...

Could anyone here help me in determining the proper qcop commands (or point me in the direction of fully documented signals for the QTopia desktop) to achieve this desired effect?

Thank you! :-)
