I've previously made some posts to the general 55xx forum, but suspect some of my questions are more relevant here.
I bought a Zaurus SL-5500, which displayed some strange behaviour (applications starting automatically and cycling between each other), and was advised to update the ROM to the latest Sharp Image (3.13)
However, it keeps bombing on the ROM upgrades.
Two possibilities - each the device I have is a lemon, and no amount of fiddling will ever make it work again - OR, because I am copying ROM images to a flash card from OSX (10.4.3), some minor quirk could be causing a problem.
The first thing that came to mind were the hidden files that are copied to the Flash Card (i.e. .DSSTORE, .Trashes folder), so I went into the Terminal / Midnight Commander and removed these hidden files.
Do these have the potential to cause problems (and do they get written back to the card anyway when I eject it from the Desktop) ?
I just thought I'd check with others who have or may not have had problems upgrading the Zaurus via OSX.
