I'm selling my Zaurus SL-C1000 because it's not getting the attention is deserves (I bought a Nokia E61 last Autumn).

Comes boxed as new along with:

- Sharp EA-70S international AC Adapter (100-240V)
- USB Host adapter cable
- 512Mb Compact Flash card
- NL-2511CF Mercury Wireless Compact Flash card (802.11b WiFi)
- PDair leather flip case

Located in the UK, but will ship worldwide.

Now that the touchscreen icons (is that the correct name?) are working in 3.4.1 on my Akita, I've noticed how annoying they are when you are maninpulating scrollbars when in landscape mode sad.gif.

Is there any easy way to turn them on and off? Maybe they could be switched on in portrait mode and off again in landscape mode (you can use the keyboard instead).

Or am I just clumsy?

Thought I'd give OZ another try on my C1000 after failing to get USB networking to work on pdaXrom.

Akita image installed without a problem, but after upgrading to the latest kernel (zImage-akita-20050505180646.bin) I get an error on boot up telling that the kernel is mismatched with the version of OZ.

What have I done wrong? It still boots (after a minute delay), but I can't help feel that I've missed something out.

Received my very first Zaurus a few days ago - a C1000 bought from Trisoft who I would recommend to anyone buying a Zaurus in the UK.

After a bit of a play around with the anglicised Sharp ROM, I decided I wanted something a bit more flexible and thought I'd try the OpenZaurus ROM. This looks very nice (Opie), but seems a bit too unfinished at the moment for real work, so I thought I'd have a go at the latest pdaXrom.

Installation went without a hitch, and almost all the functions I need seem to be working. The only exception is the USB device functionality which I cannot work out. I run usbdconfig and set the function to Net or Disc, plug the A-B cable in between my PC and the Z (B end in the Z), and then nothing. The (Windows XP) PC doesn't detect it at all.

If I plug a USB device into the Z (e.g. a BT adapter), the hotplug system picks it up fine and seems to configure it ok, so the USB drivers seem to be working.

Am I missing something or does the USB interface _only_ function in host mode at the moment?
