This is a new article. Please help adding missing details.
This page is concerned with recovering a Zaurus from a bad/broken installation and restoring it back to the Sharp ROM. This is the most common case of recovery; those people who are using alternative ROMs probably know how to reinstall or retrieve a back up. Some people buying a Zaurus second hand will find an unusable installation but have no experience in recovery.
You will need a NAND Flash ROM image appropriate to your Zaurus. Either you already have one from a previous back up or you download one. The procedure is detailed at NAND Flash Restore.
Restoring Hard Disk
Zaurus models SL-3000, 3100 and 3200 come with a microdrive. Restore the drive by USB.
If the drive has been reformatted then the user probably wants to format it as FAT. This is so that the Zaurus disk can easily be mounted on any Windows PC.
- Connect via USB and format from a PC (?)
Where to obtain disk images ?
- Trisoft kindly have disk images that can be downloaded, see their support pages, e.g. for SL-C3200.
