This weekend I've tested OpenZaurus/GPE 3.5.4.1 on my (new) 3200. Unfortunatly, something seems to have gone wrong, somewhere. After trying some things in OpenZaurus the Zaurus refuses to boot. It won't show the maintainance screen (OK+Power).

I have restored the hard drive back to the default state according to the advice on the Trisoft website (I altered the partition table for OpenZaurus), and I have tried restoring by doing a NAND-Flash backup, but it still won't display the maintainance menu or boot into the the OS.

I can access the recovery console (D+B​) and the service menu (D+M). My partition table matches the description in the harddisk restore document:

CODE
Disk /dev/hda: 6144 MB, 6144284672 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 11905 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

/dev/hda1      1         20        10048+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2      21        40         10080  83  Linux
/dev/hda3      41        11905    5979960  c   Win95 FAT32 (LBA)


I have the small files from the recovery zip on the partitions, but they don't show up in /hdd1 and /hdd2 in the recovery console (should they?). They are present when I mount the first two partitions:

CODE
/dev/hda1:
.sys/hdimage2.tgz
.sys/hdlist1.dat

/dev/hda2:
.sys/contlist.dat
.sys/hdlist2.dat
.sys/hdlist3.dat


The NAND restore seems to have went fine using the file from Trisoft's website.

What else should I do? Am I missing some obvious important step? sad.gif

Ah! After leaving the Zaurus for what is was for an hour or so, it now works again!

I have the OK + Power menu now. I have no idea what went right this time. sad.gif

On a side note; the documentation offered here at the OESF websites and by Trisoft is excellent. My apologies for this pointless thread.

I had similar problems with my C860, it refused to go into the menu.

Turned out it was the battery being utterly flat. Without a battery charge being present the Z won't go into the OK + Power menu it seems, even with the AC adapter plugged in.
