There was a battery application called launcherx-batteryapplet that would give more information about the battery than the default Sharp battery indicator.

The only reference I could find was at killefiz.de:


But to download it references a dead link to - um - zaurususergroup.org

Does anyone know where I can find this app or something similar?

I have an SL-6000. Thanks.

Is there a JDK or even a JRE that will run on pdaXrom? Is someone working on this?

I followed the directions for resizing my partition to 45MB as listed in thePDAXROM instructions found How to install PdaXrom here. Now I want to go back to the way it was before, since pdaXrom doesn't seem to be a good solution for me. According to the 6000 hardware info page:

    *  60MB of RAM available. RAM is not saved when the unit looses power.
    * 60MB of FLASH available (SL-6000D has 128MB). FLASH is available after the unit looses power.
          o 30MB is mounted as '/'. On the SHARP ROM it's not available for modification. On most other ROMs you can change it as you see fit. When flashing the unit with updater.sh script this is the location where initrd.bin is copied to.
          o 30MB is mounted as '/home'. This can be modified by anyone on any ROM, and is not modified when flashing the unit. Some modified scripts however such as the one provided with OpenZaurus can prompt you to format it.

I assume the 45MB in the pdaXrom install didn't affect the root partition. Is that correct? So what do I do now to get my 6000L back to factory spec?

I read in the instructions for installing PDAXROM here that I needed to resize the partition on my 6000L. Now I read in some of the forums that I should not resize my 6000L root partition. I need to know what the size of the original Sharp ROM's root partition is, and the best way to set it back to those original settings.

I finally decided to get rid of the default Sharp ROM on my 6000L, and decided to use PdaXrom since everyone seems to like it. I followed the instructions posted on http://www.pdaxrom.org & installed 1.1.0 RC 10 Kathrin. (In the process I resized my root partition to 45MB as recommended.)

Following the instructions I logged in as root & changed my root password.

I had to manually create /home/root because when I rebooted I a message came up on the screen saying it did not exist.

So far everything seemed pretty good. Then I typed "startx", and instead of seeing a beautiful user interface, I see an X-window terminal screen & a copy of xclock running. Thats it. Nothing else. There are no user settings. No programs. No menus. No way to log out!

Is this what I am supposed to see? What do I do next? blink.gif

It seems the documentation does not include such information.

Please help me. I don't want to go back to the Sharp ROM.
