SL-C860, apparently new. Don't ask me, got the last one available and was in no position to choose.
During experiments in picking a better version of SDL, I tried a package taken from a japanese site. Soon into running an SDL program, the machine went out. Attempts to turn it on normally failed.
Attempts to get to the Japanese Service Menu failed as well.
The D+M English Service Menu, which I've used just a few days ago to make a NAND backup, works just fine. However, restoring from a NAND backup I made days ago still does not produce a living machine.
After restore, NAND Bad Count results in zero bad blocks, however, a NAND checksum check results in red NGs starting with KERNEL1.
I have a few specific questions:
1. Will a 'NAND Flash Erase' still leave me with the D+M English Service Menu to try restoring a NAND backup?
2. Will flashing a japanese NAND image I found on the net improve the situation?
3. Does anyone have experience in using the recovery kit at http://pocketworkstation.org/files/recover/ on a real live SL-C860 and what were the results?
Prompt and quick answers would be very much appreciated, since I have to go to work in about five hours and I'll really need my Zaurus.
