Hey recently i ordered a 3100 and it should be here soon. I've been reading the forums over the past week to get back up to date on zaurus development ( i sold my 5500 at the end of 2004 ). I have a few questions i would like to ask, some might have been repeated before, but trough searching i haven't found them, or if i found something similar it hasen't been answered in full. My questions are divided in two categories internal ram and internal hdd.
From reading install guides and posts, i see that i have to or should ( some user(s) said they didn't? ) resize the nand partitioning. If i do have to resise it, it seems i can do it all as root, or a mix between root and user. According to the official user guides there are no specific mentions of recommended partitioning for the 3100, but more for the xx0 series. Some people recommend doing the whole thing as root and some say they did a split, whats better? actually a better question would be whats actually the difference if there is any, and what problems might result from doing either?
According to posts on the forums i've figured out that by default the 3100 comes with 3 partitions to the internal hdd ( 2 small ones, and 1 storage one ). I've read that the small ones are left over from the 3000, but still cause problems with the sharp based roms if you decide to remove/edit them. So here are some questions about this and pdaXrom:
1) Does pdaXrom need/check/care about the partitioning of the internal hdd like the sharp based roms? or is it treated exactly the same as a cf card added to the exterior cf slot?
2) If pdaXrom dosen't care about the internal hdd, can i just remove all the partitions and format it in ext2 and then go ahead and install things on it? ( yeah i know i wont be able to use it for mounting on windows, but i have other solutions for that )
Thanks for your help and your hard work developing!
