After unsuccessfully trying to install OpenBSD, and then using fdisk to return the microdrive to its original partition-scheme, proceeded to restore my 3100 to factory settings by using the OK/on procedure.
Well it never gets very far, there are some bsd specific files left, that are looking for A6 partions, i guess.

I don't have a NAND backup, any advice will be appreciated

Thanks

can you access the backup restore utility? If yes then TriSoft has the complete restore for it. I know I asked for it smile.gif

i did get that file from the TriSoft site, but when i use the Reset/Flash procedure with OK/on (that is from the BIOS, since i cannot boot into QTopia anymore) it will give me the following output:

"Restore failed , format Error"

sounds like you need a nand backup to reflash your device, then a restore is possible.....I think.

Maybe you could try to ask to conics if they can put a NAND backup of the 3100 on their site, they already have the ones for all the other models.

Good idea,
I send them a mail, hopefully they will load an 3100-Nand image up. Also searching this Forum, led me to another link (http://www.xlfag.com/zaurus/) for restoring the 3000 from scratch. Accidentially someone run into similar problems installing OpenBSD37.
I am waiting for an answer from pelon, if that How-To will also work for the 3100.

Hi,
I did the same thing! Just waiting for my 5GB MD to turn up with a 3100 image on it.
I'll let you know how I get on. smile.gif
