@jeffbarish: I really want to thank you for posting. Your trials and tribulations mirrored mine exaclty, and I could tell that I was making some sort of progress because I had run into the same problems as you did.

After screwing up Qtopia, I flashed to the Guylhem ROM and had problems with that, so I had to return to the original Sharp ROM. I'd've been lost if it weren't for this thread.

Hi,

I performed this procedure, but the JAVA is gone. How do
I get it back?

Thanks!

I repeated this procedure the other night. It seems that the JAVA gets
restored OK, but there was no tab, until I installed the jeode-demos. The
original demo that was on there when I received the unit, which was
some JAVA-based graph layour demo, is gone.

In any case, I figured I'd update this thread, so folks that might be
nand-restoring to the original OS, know that the JAVA VM is
restored OK.

Can someone please share the original NAND backup of the Zaurus SL-6000L?

http://zaurus.thegrantclan.org/download/za...0217SL6V112.zip is the original sharp rom as found on sharps site. I have used it many time and then restored my backup and had my Z right back to the point it was before I started playing. The instruction from sharps website on how to uses this restore are at http://zaurus.thegrantclan.org/download/za...ashsharprom.txt.

Does this process works only with CF and not SD?

I had the wireless problem too, but I fixed it by running 'depmod -a' as root.

I have no idea how I mangled my module dependancy information.

I tried to flash OZ-OPIE to my sl6000, went through the procedure documented on this site with the maintainance menu, get the console messages that it is flashing the image files, reset, and then try to format it through the maintainance menu. At this point the screen goes blank and the power light goes off. I can do nothing or see nothing going on until I do a reset again. I tried restoring a fresh stock NAND on an SD card but the same thing happens. Don't tell me a made a brick please! What can I do?

Hi.
is better that this never happens but i think that is impossible for me and now i have to restored mi Zaurus SL6000L.
I have read all the posts about this so.
First i got into diagnostic menu pressing D an P while reset and put the battery on so in the menu i go to 4 page and i make a nand back up to CF and it makes me a file SYST00006.DBK in the CF.
Now i am goingo to get the original rom from http://www.externe.net/zaurus/flash/nand/backup/
the last option i think is the righ one and i will try to restore putting this file in the CF and going to restoring in the menu, in the nand restore also in the 4 page.
Well in a few time i will tell you how is it going.
Thanks

Hi Again.
I am going to explain who am i tryng to get my original rom again.
First of al i go to http://www.externe.net/zaurus/flash/nand/backup/
and get the file syst0006.dbk-us.bz2
So then i get into the diagnostic menu and i go in page 4 to nand back up to CF and it makes me a file into the CF called SYST0006.DBK it ask me to execute the back up with this file and i say ys do it makes me the back up.
After i go to restore from CF and first appears the before file SYST....
and it says EXecute restore? iy say yes
Delete all flasf data ? and i say yes
So it says Restore ...failed
format errror
I dont know what am i doing bad.
I really need help in this.
Thanks all.

Your Compact Flash card needs to be formatted as FAT (also called FAT16), not vfat or fat32. Copy the nand backup to the Compact Flash card, and try again. Hopefully that is the only problem.

Hi Again.
I already have my Zaurus alive and kicking .
It was only the problem that the file i get from externe i have to rename it and then everything was ok.
Thanks all
skywise
Just an FYI for anyone happening to look here. It may be obvious to some, but it wasn't to me until I just tried it.

If you have the expansion sled for the SL-6000, you can't use the CF slot in the sled to do NAND backups/restores.

You can have the sled attached while you're doing it, but the card you backup/restore from must be in the primary slot.

Hi Yes please can you ost your NAND for SL 6000, i tried flashing with the original sharp rom, but it the sd card is not being recognized, lsmod shows the sharp_mmcsd module loaded Thx a lot - munch

Hi hubcapboy, can you post your NAND backup again, the one on externe.net has a time stamp older than the one when you last uploaded, so I amwondering whether it is the original NAND backup or the one with the fast kernel etc

Thx a lot

I dont know if the SL-6000's differ Nand wise, but heres are link to one

Thx, I used the backup from externe.net and it worked, but I guess the real reason why the SD card wasnt being recognized was some bad sectors in the sd card, when i used a different one it recognized it ok

Just for everyone's information, that NAND backup is not totally in English. The Addressbook has tabs for "ai ka sa ta na ha ma ya ra wa ab and so" (instead of a b c d etc). blink.gif

Also keymapping is different for some keys. For instance the period key types a dash. dry.gif

does anyone have the full japanese nand back up from the SL-6000W? I need full japanese language in stalled on my SL-6000L.

here's my zaurus downloads directory; sadly it looks as if I only have the W in english, sorry. I think meanie's pages list how to re-add Jp support to cacko/sharp ROMs?

Hi, everybody!

Just a stupid newbie's first question (or two): Does a NAND restore also reset the Z to its default partitioning?

The first question is a result of my attemp to flash my SL-6000 with the e-image (Enlightment). I downloaded the image from G:\Zaurus\www.openzaurus.org\download\3.5.4\images\tosa, located an updater.sh at Hentges site (3.5.4), renamed the e-image-3.5.4-tosa.rootfs.jffs2 file to initrd.bin and placed the stuff on a CF. .The power on /OK button gave me the update-menu and I started the update procedure. Everything went OK, to start with:
- the Sharp screen appeared
- the init: version 2.78 booting message appeared
- Zaurus CF updater said:
kernel 0% ................ 100%
Sucess!
RO file system
Flash erasing...done
0% .............. 100% ERROR:flash write
Error!
Please reset

Then the Z (after some time while I wrote this text) decided to boot up on its own, INIT: version 2.86 booting blablabla... The first time it became stuck on a black screen with an X in the middle of it and nothing more happened. The next time and all following times (even after a Format from update menu followed by a new re-flashing of e-image) it comes to tosa login: and loops there. I can log in, but there is no GUI. The green light flashes.

So, now comes my second question: have I done something wrong in my flashing procedure? The "ERROR:flash write" message after 100% seems weird. Did the flash succeed or not? I have read everything I could find on the subject and it shouldn't be the CF card. I have done flashing of my 5500 and 5600 before (switching to OZ and then back to Sharp/Cacko) so at least the card should be working. ;-)

Any help very appreciated.

/Z


P.S. I am trying to gather pieces of various ROMs for the Z-s. I have noticed that much of the stuff has disappeared from the net recently, so I am just trying to put together a collection of a few ROMs and other Z-related software.

Can't help with the flashing details per se, but the fact that the card worked before doesn't mean it's necesarily okay now.

I would fsck the card, and also do md5sum on the files to make sure they aren't corrupt.

Hi,

I did fsck the card and it seemed OK... Tried different cards and same result, flashing with the opie-image worked, flashing with the e-image reported Format error.

My guess is it's the e-image. Also, I don't think you'll be too happy with openzaurus anyway. Not much development got completed for the Tosa there. Much better now on Angstrom. I'm working (slowly) on trying to get e to run on my tosa...I've got a post about it here. e actually runs, but it's not responding to the touch screen.
