I just got my Zaurus a month ago and have never really updated a ROM before. I have decided that pdaXrom is what I want.
Can someone tell me what the issues are when going from qtopia to pdaXrom?
If I do that, can I go back if I want to?
Just worried that I will screw it up.
Please tell me if I should be careful about anything. I would hate to kill it.
I can understand your nervousness - there's a lot of info to try and digest (I've had my Z a few weeks).
As in most cases when upgrading something it's best to do a backup first (in this case a NAND backup). Then if something goes horribly wrong you can revert back. So you'll need a SD/CF big enough (C1000/3200 is ~130MB) to hold the backup.
A word of warning about pdaXrom; if you're going to try Beta 4, then it uses a new bootloader (u-boot) which if as you're new to all of this, is IMHO a pain in the arse for newbies like ourselves if you want to revert to another ROM or version of pdaXrom (just my opinion
). I would suggest Beta 3 or Beta 1, however I've gone off of pdaXrom, so I shouldn't make your mind up for you
Hope that helps, let me know if you need more info...
