I was trying to install pdaXrom and my Zaurus appears to be completly dead. Screen is blank, the yellow charge light will not come on or blink.
It's a new Zaurus SL-C1000 from Japan. The ROM was all in Japanese so I needed to make some sort of switch. I was a good boy and backed up the Japanese ROM via the Diagnostic/Service menu (shutting down, pulling the battery, restarting while holding down D + M). It worked fine. I rebooted and it worked fine after the backup. The backup file was on the CF.
Then I went to install the pdaXrom OS. Here are the files that were on the main directory of the CF:
There were other files (including backup files) in other directories. I went to the Flash/Update menu, selected option 3, typed 'Y' for what was supposed to be "Yes, I'm certain I want to do this," saw several files flash by on the screen, and then the screen went blank. Of course I had the power supply plugged in and before all this the amber light was on to let me know this. Once the screen went blank the amber battery/charge light went out. I waited 5 minutes or so and nothing. I tried pushing the on/off button. Although I know it may have been a bad idea, I finally tried unplugging it and resetting it after 10 minutes of no response.
Any ideas what I can do other than use it for a doorstop or send it back to Sharp in Japan?
