Hi there

I have a SL-5500 with accessories and software for sale. If your interested go here.


It's been looked after well and is in excellent condition with no surface scratches. Note the original stylus has long gone so it comes with two replacements. Currently flashed to a Cacko rom.

All the original contents are included

docking station
Sharp application CD
power pack
plastic screen protector
original packaging

the extra accessories include

beautiful leather case - really high quality
Symbol wireless card
battery extender
high capacity battery
spare stylus
Compact Flash 128k (I used this to store applications and flash the unit with different roms)
SD card 256k (Python and word dictionary go here)


loads of open source/GNU programs e.g. Python and Tetris

Strategic Assault http://eongames.com/games/sa/shots.html
tkc Mahjongg http://www.thekompany.com/embedded/tkcmahjongg/
tkc Editor http://www.thekompany.com/embedded/tkceditor/

Hi there

My battery level indicator only every shows 3 levels 100%, 40% or 1%.

I'm using the stock Sharp Rom. Is there a more accurate battery monitor program or patch for the kernal to give a more accurate reading?

thanks in advance

Im trying to get hold of the random module for S5500 running the Sharp Rom.

I've grabbed other modules from http://www.vanille.de/feed/python/sharprom/

Does the random module exist for the Zaurus?

thanks in advance

Really enjoying OZ 3.5.2

But I can't get some of my old Eon games to work.

I've run the the compatibility program on my tck editor and thats fine

But I can't run the compatibility program on the Eon Config because it's in the settings tab which isn't available as a drop down option.

I can run the compatibility program on the bust em demo and this runs but the screen is blank! Strategic Assault won't start at all.

So how do I run the compatibility program on Eon Config which is in the setting tab?

thanks in advance

Hail fellow Zaurians

I turned on my Zaurus today after about a week of it being suspended and it seems like all the programs I installed myself (xmms, Strategic Command, Python etc) have disappeared sad.gif

I wasn't mucking around all I did was suspend it.

The internal storage is quite full so I don't think the programs have been wiped from memory but icons and tabs have disapeared. I can't start programs from the command line either.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Without reinstalling everything?

thanks in advance
