Hi,
Help me please.
I wanted to upgrade my zaurus with a new rom and I copied updater.sh, initrd.bin, zImage.bin on my SD card.
these are the steps I followed:
I reset the zaurus ,
I Closed the battery cover, and move the Lock Switch to the Lock position
I Pressed ON Key while pressing OK key
I Selected "4. Update" by using cursor keys and push OK key
I selected Sd medium
I saw the Zaurus updater which display percentage of kernel and flash (initrd) update
At 100% Zaurus tell me the success of update and reboot.
At this point Zaurus is off, but It doesn't reboot . It remain off . I tried to push any button (on/off) for first but it remains off.

I tried to update with my old rom on CF card, but I have the same result. Zaurus seems died.

Help me . I don't know what can I do.

So you can get back into the maintenance menu to flash another ROM?

Which ROM exactly did you download?

If its the Cacko ROM, I think you need to repartion first, and then re-flash (essentially by doingtth first few stapes again (take out battery, put in battery, lock, press OK and ON etc) and then go to refash menu and then actually refalsh with new ROM.

Did yo do the 2nd series of steps (assuming you were trying the Cacko ROM on C7xxx series).

In SD card I've the new Sharp rom downloaded from www.zaurususergroup.com (Sharp 5600 ROM Ver 1.32 Description: Latest 5600 ROM release from Sharp. Appears to have fixed several bugs and is using Qtopia 1.5.4. Added on: 15-Feb-2004)

In CF card I've my old Sharp rom downloaded from www.zaurususergroup.com (5600 v1.32-card
Description: Sharp ROM for 5600 v1.32-Card Added on: 12-Dec-2003) .

This is not my firts time that I update my ROM.

Now , also if the zaurus is connected to AC it seems died.
I can only reset zaurus and newly update a ROM.
