Where is the thread? I can't find it...

Thanks

first mount and make sure you know where the hardrive is with df or mount.
----------------------------------------
mount /dev/hda1 /hdd1
mount /dev/hda2 /hdd2

or

mount /dev/hdc1 /hdd1
mount /dev/hdc2 /hdd2
----------------------------------------


then cd /hdd1 cd /hdd2 and make a directory in each
----------------------------------------
mkdir .sys
----------------------------------------

then
----------------------------------------
cp /mnt/cf/hdd1sys/* /hdd1/.sys
cp /mnt/cf/hdd2sys/* /hdd2/.sys
----------------------------------------
after you are done, cd into the directory and see if you can see the files that each hdd1sys and hdd2sys making sure if its in there. sometimes you may need to play with it cuz its a bit buggy. I'm not sure if it's me or my commands or what. but you will struggle a bit. if you cd int /hdd1 and hdd2, you will find lost and found but make sure you see .sys files(remember directory is invisible.) if you still cant get the files going, su at the start even though your already root.

I am trying to do the same thing but cannot figure out from this thread how it is done?

I have just installed pdaXii3 but I want to go back to the SharpROM. Where do you write those lines/commands?
Cresho
load up the files used to flash the pdaxii3 rom. start it up as if you where going to flash it. now go into terminal mode. There is an option in there.
RLamb
OK all done! Thanks.

I installed the Trisoft image though, and its a bit different from the one that came with mine. Is the image on the Trisoft site the latest SharpROM version?
Cresho
hmm..no its not. there is another version.

check your settings->system info->last tab.

I actually just installed cacko in the end, and love it!! Exactly what I was looking for tbh a perfect balance between features and speed!! smile.gif

Thnaks for your help in this thread Cresho.

just an update. look for my cf-refresh ipk here in the forums. it refreshes the cf slot when ever it takes a crap dive. it is very useful. Ill be updating it soon! also, dont overclock obove two steps in the 3200. and one step under. it is stable within this range.

the cf refresh just reinitiates the slots. when you have problems logging in wifi or bluetooth even though its seen by the system, click on the icon it created and it will refresh it. then it all works.

Looks good I will definitely install that thanks Cresho! Also, in another thread someone said you created a patch that changes the 1gb SD card limit on Cacko do you have a link for that to?

Thanks again.
