Hello,

I have a zaurus 3100 with last version of pdaxrom ( 1.1.0r198 for Zaurus C1000, C3100/C3200) and I try to update to Zubuntu 1.0 RC1 but update not work


I delete all files from SD, copy files from Zubutu in SD and follow instructions from zubutu web page
http://www.omegamoon.com/blog/static.php?page=ZaurusUbuntu

CODE
1. Download the kernel for your device from one of the options below, and put the kernel together with the generic updater.sh onto a FAT formatted SD memory card. You can check the integrity of the downloaded files with the md5sum <filename> command. The checksum should match the hash value on the right. Make sure there isn't floating an initrd.bin file around on the SD card!

  # SL-C3000, SL-C3100 and SL-C3200
        MD5: cd016351fa274668341d6eea9f133a64
  # SL-C1000
        MD5: 2000ec7b019750ee280150f3ad8a73c8
  # SL-C700, SL-C750, SL-C760, SL-C860
        MD5: 6d4437c6cd6cb9335a1780ee0f0e922d


2. Remove battery and power adapter cable
3. Wait for 5 seconds
4. Replace battery, close and lock battery cover
5. Attach power adapter cable
6. Keep OK button pressed while pressing on/off switch
7. From the Japanese menu, choose option 4 (Update), then 2 (SD) and finally Y


but start the pdaxrom emergency system, not have a Japanese menu sad.gif

thanks for your help!!

It looks like you're using uboot, which can overwrite the sharp bootloader. If so, download a NAND backup (trisoft has one), remove battery, remove external power, press (and keep holding down) Fn+D+M and insert the external power (while still holding down Fn+D+M). Then finally restore the NAND using the downloaded backup.

If you've done that, you've restored your device to factory default and the procedure should work as described.

The cure-all thread!

It says the same thing, but in different words wink.gif

thanks cortez, your zubuntu works fine...

how I install a pdaXrom-1.1.0r198-Kathrin-akita-current in same SD?
I have 3 partitions and one swap in my SD (2Gb)

The pdaXrom-1.1.0r198-Kathrin-akita-current have 3 files:
-rw-r--r-- 1 saba saba 723 2007-03-27 15:38 autoboot.sh
-rw-r--r-- 1 saba saba 1,3M 2007-04-13 01:43 kernel.img
-rw-r--r-- 1 saba saba 46M 2007-04-13 01:43 rootfs.img

create boot directory in root partition
rename rootfs.img to zImage.bin and copy to /boot dir
Create a file named kernel-cmdline containing the kernel startup command line

what is kernel startup command line ?
