Hi smile.gif

Just a little word to let you know that I'm still alive and starting to work on porting beta4 and uboot to our beloved c3000 ...

Sorry it took me so long to give some news but I had too much work ... btw i'm now in holydays so you can expect more news from me really soon wink.gif

Don't hesitate to post your thoughts/ideas/tryouts which could help me doing it faster wink.gif

Hi,

So here it is, thanks to recent help from iamasmith who fixed out my concerns about power management wink.gif

pdaXrom for c3000 Beta2

1) Check and decompress the pdaXrom-c3000b2.tgz to your CF or SD card

2) Ensure that your C3000 machine has a standard HD partitioning (e.g. as it was originally), booting may fail if this is not the case

3) Turn the zaurus over and flip the battery case switch to “Unlocked”. Remove the battery cover, and find the small reset microswitch on the left. The battery cover or the stylus can be used to press it.

4) Switch back to locked without puting back the battery cover yet as you'll need to reset again

5) Insert the CF card with the image in the root, as described above.

6) Plug in the AC power jack. The yellow charge lamp must be on indicating external power, or you will get an error message in japanese later.

7) Press the “OK” key and keep it pressed while pressing the “On/Off” button on the front side.

8) The Maintenance Screen will display. Choose “Update” this is item 4.

9) The next screen will ask the source, choose “CF” or "SD".

10) The next screen asks for confirmation, choose1 “Yes” this is the left button

11) now, in the pdaXrom updater menu, choose 6 - "HD Utils(C-3x000 Models only)" then 1 - "Set HD Partitions" This will format your HD and repartition it with only one 4Gb partition

12) Choose 3 - "Go back to main menu"

13 ) Choose 8 - "Restart"

14) restart from 6 to 10

15) Choose option 1 - "Install new ROM"

16) When it ask you if you want to format internal user flash : answer "No"

17) Choose 7 - "Install hdimage (c3000 only)" and wait as it will take a while

18) Choose 8 - Reboot and remove any CF card from your Z

This pivot_root method doesn't support any CF memory card to be inserted during boot time, this is the only "bug" I've found so far ... btw I didn't have much time to test it ...

Et voilà, you're done to test this one wink.gif

as allways, pleasegive feedback about found bugs and fixings ... wink.gif

(edit : the restore option from HD Utils don't fit c3100 users yet ... btw tyou can use the set partition option to format your HD to one 4Gb partition if you want , reset may be worling soon)

EDIT : edited instructions : there was an error in the order

Hi,

so, finaly I have made it, a fully working pdaXrom for c3000. Btw it's not really finished yet as I still have to finish the c3000 implementation in the pdaXbuilder but I think I'll now take one week of real holidays before finishing that biggrin.gif

The Beta can be found Here and here are some instructions :

1) Check and decompress the pdaXrom-c3000.tar.bz2 to your CF or SD card

2) Ensure that your C3000 machine has a standard HD partitioning (e.g. as it was originally), booting may fail if this is not the case

3) Turn the zaurus over and flip the battery case switch to “Unlocked”. Remove the battery cover, and find the small reset microswitch on the left. The battery cover or the stylus can be used to press it.

4) Switch back to locked without puting back the battery cover yet as you'll need to reset again

5) Insert the CF card with the image in the root, as described above.

6) Plug in the AC power jack. The yellow charge lamp must be on indicating external power, or you will get an error message in japanese later.

7) Press the “OK” key and keep it pressed while pressing the “On/Off” button on the front side.

8) The Maintenance Screen will display. Choose “Update” this is item 4.

9) The next screen will ask the source, choose “CF” or "SD".

10) The next screen asks for confirmation, choose1 “Yes” this is the left button

11) now, in the pdaXrom updater menu, choose option 3 - "NAND Flash utils"

12) choose option 1 - "Resize root partition" and enter 6 (any other value may either not permit flashing or brick your Zaurus)

13) Your Zaurus will then reboot, reset it and restart from steps (5) to (10)

14) Then choose the first option 1 - "Install new ROM"

15) When it ask you if you want to format internal user flash : answer "No"

16) Choose 6 - "Install hdimage (c3000 only)" and wait as it will take a while

17) Finally go back to 3 - "NAND Flash utils" and seect 2 - "Format user Partition"

Et voilà, now you're ready, just reboot with 7 - "Reboot" and enjoy pdaXrom on your c3000 wink.gif

and please give feedbacks about found bugs and method you used to fix them smile.gif

Hi,

My c860 is taking dust for month with it's dead charging circuitry. It's not under warranty anymore and I've bought it in a Taïwan store (Brando) so it won't be very interresting to send it back for repair (I'd have to pay for repair fee + sending it back to japan + sending back the device from japan to france ... better off buying a c1000 from pricejapan for this pricetag) so I'm looking for someone able to repair it (would prefer in Europe not to pay too much for transport) as I don't have skills nor hardware for that ...

Thanks in advance

Bonjour,

Ca fait bizarre de poster en francais dans ces forums mais tant qu'à faire je préfererais qq1 en France wink.gif

Mon c860 prends la poussière depuis quelques mois suite à un problème de charge (probablement un fusible mort). Etant donné qu'il n'est plus garanti et que je l'ai acheté à un magasin situé à Taïwan (Brando), ca ne vaut pas vraiment le coup de le renvoyer en SAV (autant acheter un c1000 chez pricejapan). Je recherche donc quelqu'un à même de le réparer, possédant les capacités techniques et le materiel nécessaire, et pouvant me faire la réparation sans que ca me revienne trop cher ...

Merci d'avance smile.gif
