I have a C-1000, and I was trying to install r121. I did not have u-boot on it, so I used the sharp bootloader to install it, as instructed by here.
I then stuck the pdaxrom files on a FAT16 formatted SD card, which has given me no problems in the past, unplugged/plugged the Zaurus, and tried to boot it up. No lights.

When I hold OK while booting, no responce. C+D while booting with the bootloader files on the card, it does nothing. Is there any hope of resurrecting it? Any ideas on how to fix this mess? I will gladly provide more information if needed, thanks. I am open to trying pretty much anything.

I was wondering how everybody cleaned their Zaurus's screens.

I wipe it with a non-lint cloth, but that does not always remove everything, does anybody have any great methods they want to share?

I have had a C1000 for a few weeks, but I am having a very hard time finding compatable software for it. It seems most of it was written for some other third party or or some other PDA. A lot of it partially worked, or did not work at all.
Is there any site that has software that is known to work on a stock C1000?
Thanks for all replys, sorry for the dumb question.

I am going to buy a Sharp Zaurus C1000, and before I get it I have a few questions about it.

Will it be able to do the following?
1) Play DivX (or comparable MPEG4) at 640x480.
2) Use USB host to access a laptop hard drive in an external enclosure, and play a movie off of it.
3) Power a laptop hard drive (no? I did not think so, is there any battery pack for powering USB stuff?)
4) Compile and run basic console C programs (With GCC, or GCC based compiler?).
5) Cook my breakfast.
6) Edit text documents using a USB keyboard (possibly with port replicator)
7) Go on wireless internet (802.11b, whats a good CF wireless card?)

I realize I will have to wait for third party ROMs for some of this functionality.

Also, is there any store that imports the C1000 that does not require PayPal some third party?
(The only one that I have found is streamlinecpus.com)

Sorry in advance if this is in the wrong forum, a stupid post or I should of more extensively used the search feature, if so just flame me and/or lock it. unsure.gif
