well, my camera/memory card reader doesn't support transfering files larger than... somehwere over 20mb, so i had to get creative
my plan was to flash to OZ/Opie to get correct partitioning, and then flash to pdaXrom once the partitioning was successful. everything started out pretty much as planned- i transfered over the flashing files (after 2 corrupt downloads, that is ), flashed, and OZ/Opie popped up onto the screen.
then, i went for the kill. i downloaded the files for flashing to pdaXrom, started to transfer the files, via camera, to the SD card, and then... initrd.bin stopped it, due to "insufficient system resources to complete this operation". it's a 512mb card, so i assume it is the camera with a transfer limit (it has 30mb internal flash- that may be the culprit). i went on to my next plan: hook up a jumpdrive comtaining the files to the Z, and then copy them over to the SD card. Low and behold, USB Host doesn't exactly work right in OZ, yet.
it took a long time to think of it, but i finally figured out a solution:
Factory Restore Z to the Sharp ROM
put OZ flash files back onto card
via jumpdrive and USB host, get the pdaXrom flash files onto a folder on the card
re-arange the files when in OZ
flash to pdaXrom!
first things first... i can't find any instructions on how to do a factory restore to the Sharp ROM... past that, it all seems possible, but i need that step first...
any help would be appreciated
