If you are using 2.4 kernel (e.g. Sharp ROM, pdaXrom 1.1.0 beta1 and etc), you will hit the 1G limit because of the SD driver. If you are using 2.6 kernel (recent OZ> 188.8.131.52 or Angstrom), so far 4G (non-SDHC) works fine here.
Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm using a "stock" SL-6000, with the Sharp ROM version 1.12 and Kernel version 2.4.18. I rather not flash the Z with another ROM. I like the stability of the Sharp ROM and for what I do with my SL-6000 I'm not sure switching to a different ROM is worth the hassle, as minor as that might be.
So, if I stick to the stock ROM , is there any way around the 1GB limit:
- Availability of a new open source driver that works with the 2.4.18 kernel?
- Kernel update + maybe a new driver?
- Would a particular type of 2Gb SD work with the stock ROM and kernel? That's what the vendor at the link I posted previously seems to imply.
I have researched all the posting and information I could find on the internet, but I have not been able to draw a final conclusion. A lot of the suggested "remedies" I found are for the clamshell Zs, the SL-Cxxx series, and I do not know enough about the differences with the SL-6000 to be able to say if any is applicable in my case.
I have been using Linux on my desktop and notebook PC for over two years now, so I'm not afraid of Command Line based updates, hacks and manual editing of config files. I just need some guidance on the specifics for the SL-6000. It is the best pocket computer I have ever owned and I do not want to brick it (although it might be a good excuse to get one of those SL-C1000 that can be found for less than $400....
Thanks in advance.
