I'm having a problem with the copy of "initrd.bin (52MB) - build 5.4.7" I get from http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/pdaXii13/akita/.

The copy I get when I download it seems to be corrupt. W I try to install it, it gets to about 90% and then quits. I've tried downloading it at least 5 or 6 times. I even used different browsers.

I'd be willing to try build 5.4.6 but I haven't been able to find a copy.

Edit: I forgot to mention I trying to install 'Sally' on a C3200

Don't use a browser. Use wget instead. It works like a charm everytime when I download them that way.

Check the md5sums to make sure wheter your download is ok or something else is wrong.

HoloVector, Thanks for the idea but it seems to have no difference.

louigi600, The md5sums are correct.

What I've tried:

Restored original ROM (SL-C3200-ENG-NAND-original)
Cleaned the hd (NAND menu > Backup Restore Menu > HDD 00 Clear)
Re-fdisked (type 6) and formated (mkfs.msdos /dev/hda1) a 512M CF card
Copied:
. . updater.sh (25KB) - version 0.2
. . tools.tar (4.2MB)
. . initrd.bin (52MB) - build 5.4.7
to the CF and then re-checked summed them
Then followed Meanies instructions @ http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/pdaxii13.html

Edit:
When installing the ROM it gets to about 90%, at which point I get the "Opps!!!"

did you resize your NAND root partition to 121?

Meanie,
Thank you, I got it this time.

However, I did have to rerun the ROM setup 3 times. The kicker might have been that the 3rd time I when to the NAND menu and ran Option 3 "Fix loader 64MB limit . . .".

Now to play with it.
