I recently purchaced an SL 5500 from eBay along with a WFC12 card. The PDA came with the original SHARP ROM , onto which the cf card seemed to work (the LED was turned on and the system saw the wlan0 interface) After a few tries I managed to flash the Z with openzaurus 3.5.3. Then the card stopped working. (Meanwhile I had moved the zaurus with the cf plugged in, in a bag). LED never came on again, either with OZ or Sharp's ROM.
The dmesg output refers to a time out from the pcmcia driver. I'm afraid the card is bricked. Any opinions?
Any knowledge of anyone who has pried open the card to actually fix it?
