Hi there

I'm really battling to down load the most recent Zaurus SL-550 ext2 files from the Hentges site... sad.gif

...that is:
hentges-bootstrap-collie_1.0.0-wip-20061108.rootfs.ext2.gz ...08-Nov-2006 04:27 4.8M

hentges-gpe-image-collie_1.0.0-wip-20061108.rootfs.ext2.gz ...08-Nov-2006 04:27 11M

hentges-opie-image-collie_1.0.0-wip-20061108.rootfs.ext2.gz ...08-Nov-2006 04:27 9.2M

The first couple of megs (of each file) download smoothly then the connection goes crazy with download rate and amount being downloaded being completely misrepresented. At one stage it showed 120MB! Is there something wrong, I am doing something wrong.

Download from cardfs directory was fine!

I'd be grateful if someone could explain what the problem might be.

Hi there

I’m a linux user, but only on desktops. I recently bought a Zaurus SL-5500 on ebay – a great little system despite being a bit old now. Anyway it will serve my purposes for a while.

I see that there are numerous replacement ROMs for the SL-5500, which I’m keen to investigate, but first I’d like get a feel for (as an historic perspective) which Sharp ROMs have been released for the SL-5500 over the years. The one I bought on ebay came with version 3.10, which I see, from reading items on the Web, is the final one to be released by Sharp.

Can somebody point me to a list of all the previous Sharp ROM versions (1.x/2.x/3.x). Are there any and ‘release notes’ (of sorts) for these?

All the best
