Hi,
Help me please.
I 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.

After this I extracted the battery and put it newly. What happens if the battery is extracted?


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.

A hard reset. Make sure they power cable isn't attached though if you want to do a hard reset (I'd try this now).

When you start it up again you may need to hold down the on/off switch (on the back/outside, not the Home key on the inside) for a fairly long time until it boots. It may also boot with the back-light off (it'll come on once it wakes up) so you can't actually see that it's alive.

I'm using zaurus sl5600, cacko rom is not for sl5600.

I can upgrade to sharp rom or opie 3.5.2 and from cf or sd card . THis is what appens and what I saw:

ZAurus CF updater
RO file systms
Flash erasing ..dine
0% 100%
...........................
success
....
rebooting.

The screen go off and at this point zaurus is died. I press on/off button but zaurus doesn't up.
I can only reset and to repeat the same operation to upgrade.
