Anyone using PQI flash memory, if so ? CF or SD (or both), and what MB capacity ?

Am seeing PQI selling at attractive prices, the question is: is it compatible with the SL-5x00 and does it work (no one likes the RMA hassle sending it back) ?

More than six unsuccessful attempts flashing to 3.1.3 (from 2.12) using a CF card with Ospack (in root directory) inserted in the SL-5500.

When I hit the hard reset both lights come on, but when I release the " C & D " keys the lights immediately go out, and I have to wait about eight minutes for the 5500 to self heal and the charge light to come on, then reset and return to 2.12 configuration.

Used this same procedure last week on my other 5500 flashing it from 2.38 to 3.1.3 and it flashed on the first go.

Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, or what I may be overlooking.

Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Howdy Alll,

I'm looking for a CE-BC21 charger, does anyone have one they would like to sell?

Perhaps one that is gathering dust and/or sitting in a corner (or on the shelf like my SL-5500 did for three years).

Let me know price, mode, if shipping is separate or included, and transaction medium (Pay pal, check, Au or Ag).

Shipping destination is the Hill Country in the Republic of Texas.

Contact me at ---> scs@worldlinkisp.com

Thanks, Lou

Anyone know of an port of gkrellm in .ipk format for the SL-5x00 ?

Searched and searched, and found < gkrellm_1.2.10-1_arm.ipk > mentioned by PDAxROM (oesf.org/forum), however, their web page doesn't have in either their D/L or Feeds section.

gkrellm is a usefull app, especially for slow dial-up connections, undersubscribed in bandwidth and over subscribed in customers (and utilizing Burst Bandwidth). Displays data flow (or lack thereof) in realtime, along with other system data.


<<edit update >> found an old gkrellm_2.2.1_armv5tel.ipk, tried editing the suffix removing <v5tel> making it arm.ipk and spoof the Z, but install apps couldn't see it. Darn.

I want to upgrade from Opera 5.0 to hopefully v 7.x, however my old SL-5500 is still original (2.12 ROM / 2.4.6 Kernel).


1. What newer Opera versions (6.x - 7.x) will be compatible with the 2.12 ROM & 2.4.6 Kernel ?

2. Will I need to upgrade to a newer 2.x or 3.x ROM ?

3. Would the 2.37 ROM be a better choice (believe I have it on the Sharp v 1.2b upgrade CD) ?

I'd rather not have to flash the ROM based on the problems I've seen posted here, however, if I have to flash I prefer to stay with a Sharp ROM.

Also, where in the world (URL) can I locate Opera 6.x and/or 7.x to download ? I spent hours today scanning the posts and searching URL's only to run into blind alleys and bad addresses.
