Service page 2/3 does not have any entry on number 2
Service page 3/3 does not have any entry on number 2,3, and 5.

Nand Flash REad

bad block 1-> 8192

-----------------------------------------------

I have only used it for several days and seems to be working fine apart from me not being able to su to root. The previous owner has set a root password and I cant overwrite /etc/shadow. Any ideas on how to fix that?


I cant seem to be able to do a Nand backup. It complains that it cannot get the size of the CF card which seems to work on my 5600.


One other post here said that nand block errors are common even on new zaurii ( plural ? zaurus). Should I be concerned?

Thanks

Well, its dead. Going back to the seller.

It had the infamous flashing power and mail LED problem which from previous posts indicate a bad nand chip.
