Full Version: New Sharprom Image
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Model Specific Forums > Sharp Zaurus > C1000/3x00 General discussions
I decided to put up a sharprom image backup file. use the backup and restore utility to install it. This is really intended for new zaurus users of the 3200 who is undecided and until cacko rom and pdaxrom become more available and updated for use. Will only work on the c3200. It's a stepping stone "if you will."

it has tons of stuff needed for the beginner (english only).
hmmm, wonder if this will work on my 3100....

If you try it, let us know how it works. PArticularly the sd stuff!
sd will not work at all. not part of the backup regimen.
Could you post a tar image of the internal rootfs image? The one that is on /dev/mtdblock2 (at least, on the 3100's it's there). /dev/root should be a symlink to /dev/mtdblock2.
To get just the internal rom image, without grabbing everything else that's mounted under it, you can do the following:
# Mount a read-only copy of /dev/mtdblock2 somewhere
mkdir /mnt/tempmount
mount -oro /dev/mtdblock2 /mnt/tempmount
# tar up the image
tar -cf /hdd3/sl-c3200-root.tar
gzip /hdd3/sl-c3200-root.tar

# cleanup
umount /mnt/tempmount
rmdir /mnt/tempmount

This way, it will have everything but the kernel.
