Hi all,
It's been ages since I've been on the forums. Work has kept me extremely busy over the last 6+ months & I don't see it letting up anytime soon. So, I thought I'd part w/ my last two Z's. I have both a 750 & a 5500. Both have been well taken care of. I've purchased/sold several Z's over the last couple of years here, so I know others can "vouch" for me. Anyway, here's the what's included. The 750 actually has a C760 screen w/ the extended battery. It's has zero bad blocks in FLASH. It does have 1 dead pixel on the screen as well. It's currently running the Stock Sharp rom converted to English. It has the charger, 1 gig sd card, & a retractable charge/sync cable as well. The 5500 is running the tkcROM 2 w/ the 2gig sd module, that I posted to the forums last year along w/ the other tkcROM & the stock 3.13 rom. It has a 2 gig card installed already. Both handhelds come w/ a wifi card & I also have a socket low power ethernet card & a 56K compact flash modem. I have the AirCable Bluetooth module. I've used it many times w/ my Treo 700p. It works great. Basically setup a ppp connection & you're off. I can post pictures if you like. They'll come w/ lots of software from TheKompany, & Handango that I've purchased over the years also including SoftMaker's wordprocessor. . I'd like to sell together to make things simple. So how about $120 for everything plus shipping? If you're interested drop me a pm here or shoot me an email. It's nice to see the forums still active. wink.gif

Hey all,
Since I haven't had alot of time to mess around much these days w/ all my Z's, I've decided to let a few go. sad.gif I'm a gadget geek like most on here. hehe. Anyway, I've decided to part w/ my C760, C1000, and a poodle, SL-5600. I've never tried to make a killing on selling of my toys, so here's the deal, if someone is interested all three devices, I'll let them go as a package for $325 plus shipping or I can sell the systems seperately. The C760 does include the original box w/ CD's, it has the smaller battery pack and has the black screen from a C750 on it. It does have the "ghosting" issue of some Z's. It's got Cacko 1.23 loaded on it. The C1000 is also running Cacko 1.23. It has 1 bad pixel in the lower right hand corner. Barely noticeable. The SL-5600 is running the stock Sharp rom 1.32. I picked all of these up off eBay over the last year. They all run great. The 5600 didn't come w/ a cradle. I never worried about this, since I don't hotsync over USB. I'll be including 2 compact flash wireless cards as well. Each Z will also come w/ the original stylus and power supply. I'll be posting pics later this afternoon. My eBay username is kb7sqi48vf, I have a 100% feedback rating and I've sold several gadgets to loc4me.

I figured I'd post this to the forums & clear up some misconceptions. First off, if you look back in the thread on the tkcrom w/ home on sd thread, I had posted back in November that I had modified the tkcroms v1 & v2 to use the modified 2 gig sd module and hadn't had any problems testing them. I also modified the stock sharp rom 3.13 the same way. I didn't really do anything special here. All I did was take the /root/etc/rc.d/rs.sysinit script from the TKC V2 ROM & put them in the other 2 roms. I also just swapped out the sd module for the newer one. Extracting the rom on a linux box is pretty simple & just copy'ing some files then doing a mkcramfs on the extracted directory. Nothing special. biggrin.gif I just wanted to have that stuff in rom so I didn't have to add it after the fact. I'm attaching the initrd.bin files here so that way anyone can try them out. I also used the same prep-sd script mentioned in the tkcrom thread, version 5. I didn't modify it in anyway. Last thing. I've read in a few of the threads about trying to use the 2 gig sd module on other Z's. I don't recommend you try this. unsure.gif It's not going to work. If you searched the forums, you'll notice that the 5000/5500 Z's don't have a "standard" sd slot like the 5600 and above. That's why OZ versions prior to the 2.6 kernel had to use the same sd module that either came w/ the stock 5500 rom or the modified one mentioned above. I have 5 different Z's and I like them all, but I'll hardly claim to be an expert. cool.gif I hope the files will be useful to someone. If you have any questions, feel free to add to the post.

Hi all,
I've been reading these forums for quite sometime & follow them daily. :-) I've ordered my 3100 & would like to sale my C3000. It's in exellent condition. Purchased 2 months ago locally. I still have the purchase order from Dynamism. I like having the latest & greatest so I figured I'd upgrade. It comes w/ all the original accessories & in the box. It's currently flashed w/ Cacko 3kb1, but I can flash what ever you like on it. Not looking to make a fortune. So, I'm letting it got for $350. Would prefer it goes to a good home. Drop me an email or a pm if interested. Thanks. BTW, I'm located in NC & will be in Boston all next week on business. If you're in the Boston area, I'll be happy to bring it along to save shipping. Thanks for looking, kb7sqi at yahoo.com.
