Hi All!

I want to install PdaXrom to my Zaurus 3100, but I cannot make it happen.

Here's a quick history:
- I've had some distro's on my Z, latest was angstrom.
- I've tried to flash PdaXrom's u-boot, but then it bricked.
- Fixed the flash (Thanks Capn Fish!), but it doesnt boot anymore because of the different partitioning of the HDD.
- Tried flashing the u-boot again. When updater.sh runs, I get the error
CODE
SD card not found!!


Your help is very much appreciated!!

Thanks,
Ger.

uBoot is flashed by putting the FAT16-formatted SD with uBoot files in the Zaurus, removing all power, holding C and D, and inserting AC. It seems you are trying to run it from the OK menu. Or do I have something wrong?

There is an script to run from the OK menu... I will have to look at the script again...

Please follow the steps noted by Capn Fish to install uBoot, you may find better success that way

Thanks again, that worked.... (I'll go work on my reading skills; never got past the 'fresh installation with bootloader)

I succeeded in installing the uboot, but am stuck now.. sad.gif

It does boot into the emergency system, but when I mount the SD and start the installation script I get something like:

no kernel image

Any help very much appreciated!

ok... mount SD
CODE
# cd /mnt/card/(where ever the files are)/

then...
CODE
# sh autoboot.sh ./


you have to make sure that you do the " ./ " at the end... because where ever you are at on the SD card it does know where the files are... now if they are are the root of the sd card... then tell me exactly what files you have on the card...

Hi,

Thanks for your reply! I'll try that when i'm home.

The last ./ wasnt mentioned in the quickguide:

QUOTE
Run the installation script by typing ./autoboot.sh
(the last dot "." is necessary)


I wasnt sure what the last dot remark meant, but as I thought it was part of the filename (just before sh) I figured it was explained... smile.gif

Thanks,
Ger.
