For Sale / Wanted / [sold] For Sale: C1000 And Accessaries
« on: January 09, 2007, 02:47:08 am »
I am now ready emotionally to depart with my C1000. A friend of mine went to Japan to purchase a brand new one for me last March and I've had it in my drawer for the whole time, just occasionally charging the system.

About 4-5 months ago I installed pdaxrom beta 3 and it worked fine, including the wifi CF card. This time was also when I was the most active on the pdaxrom board. You can search for my postings. After the initial success of installing beta 3 and the wifi card, I got extra busy with work and never got it customized as much as I had imagined.

Ok, enough said about the history.... Here is what you will get:

1 One almost brand new C1000, overlay brilliance screen protector installed from the beginning on the screen. The screen protector was installed at the shop where c1000 was purchased and it's 'professionally' installed (yup). The screen has no dead pixel that I can find. The original box and all the paper, cdrom (unopened), dummy cf and sd card slot inserts, usb cable, power adapter, and original receipt in Japanese.
2. One Buffalo Air Station WLI-CF-S11G wifi (11b) card, Will include install cdrom and manual (a pretty thick one, too. Never read a page of it, though)
3. One USB hub
4. One 512 mb SD card
5. microsoft notebook optical mouse (not in the photo)
6.  One USPS Priority Mail to US address

Who am I?
You can search for my id 'hyperaesthetic' at ebay. I do not have a long transaction record, but I do have one. If you are serious about purchasing my c1000 and email me at hyper aesthetic at gmail . com (delete the space between hyper and aesthetic), I will give you my work phone number and email address so you better know who I am.

I accept Paypal or money order. If you want specific photo shots, let me know I will try to take it after work....  



edited to include microsoft notebook optical mouse in the package.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / [solved] Can Not Restore Nand On C-1000
« on: November 01, 2006, 01:40:23 am »
Howdy All,

Well, I can not restore the NAND even if my life depends on it!

I can bring up the service menu fine, but when I get to the NAND Flash Restore menu under backup restore menu on page 3, no matter what brand CF/SD card I use, I keep getting the format error!

I have used 3 different CF cards and 3 different SD cards, but I get the same error. The NAND backup I got is from I think.

Since the file comes from a reputable source, I am beginning to wonder if the compatibility of the cards is the problem, but with 6 different brands of cards.... I don't know what's going on.

I don't know what's going on any more. I guess I should be glad that I can get to the service mode, huh? The problem is that I can not do much with that service pages!

Any pointer is appreciated....


I solved it using a backup NAND I downloaded from

I used several brands of cf/sd cards, but could not overcome the format error until I downloaded this backup rom and restore it.

Thank you all for your help!

Zaurus - pdaXrom / [solved] Installing 1.1.0beta3 After 1.1.0r121
« on: October 31, 2006, 02:42:22 am »
Howdy All,

I've decided to try my luck with a more stable version of the OS: 1.1.0beta 3. However, installation is already proving nothing is easy....

First, I flashed NAND since I need to do this anyway. I followed the installation steps, but I am stuck in the first stage of updating the flash.

I copied the 3 files onto a fat-formatted sd card. I took out battery and disconnected the power adapter from my C-1000 and waited a couple of minutes and put battery back and reinsert the power cable. While holding 'ok' key, I pressed 'on' button. Nothing happens.

Is there something obvious that I forgot? I get the feeling that I shouldn't have erased the NAND.... Do I need to restore NAND and then install beta 3?

Thanks for your help.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / 1.1.0r121 And Buffalo Wli-cf-s11g
« on: October 27, 2006, 02:03:33 am »
Howdy All,

I am trying to get a wireless internet connection with my CF wireless card. I searched for clues, but I haven't read anywhere that my CF card, Buffalo WLI-CF-S11g, is successfully used with pdaXrom 1.10r121.

I'd appreciate if someone can tell me how to go about activating the cf card. Right now, it's sitting pretty in my cf card slot, blinking repeatedly. The card is recognized, but I can not connect to the web. I setup all the parameters in the LAN&Wifi 'control panel,' but I get a DNS lookup error when I try connecting to the internet with dillo, which is installed with pdaxrom.

Any pointer is appreciated.

Thank you,


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Root Partition With 1.1.0rc121 [title Corrected]
« on: October 26, 2006, 04:27:54 am »
Howdy All,

I managed to install pdaxrom 1.10rc121 on my C-1000. I was so lost during the installation that I didn't have the frame of mind to care about root partition setup. The installation instruction for 1.1.0rc121 didn't say anything about modifying/creating a root partition.

To eek out more performance out of C-1000 do I need to modify the root partition, and if yes is it too late now to do it now without wiping out the flash and reinstalling the pdaxrom?

I hope I made some sense.

Thank you for your explanation.


Title corrected.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Trouble With Installing 1.1.0r121 On C-1000
« on: October 24, 2006, 02:18:17 am »
Howdy All,

I followed the instruction written by Sash on his bloghere but I can not boot up the emergency system. I was able to finish the step # 13 on his instruction, but when I insert my sd card with pdaXrom (step 1 for bootup emergency system) and follow on, I do not get the bootup screen. My c-1000 is totally unresponsive.

Here are a couple of questions I have:

Do I need to get 2 sd/cf cards for this installation, one for and new u-boot files, and the other for I tried having two different sd cards and also combining all the files onto one sd card. The result is the same: no success.

Right now, I can get into diagnostic menu and erase NAND flash, but that's about it.

Another question I have is that Sash's instruction step #1 for bootup emergency system says I should hold on button while plugging in power cable whereas this instruction #3 (for fresh install) or #6 (upgrade or update) says I should hold ok button when powering up. Which is right?

Thanks for your help.


I think it was the SD card compatibility. I tried another (third one) card for the pdaxrom files and it worked out the first time. I couldn't believe my eyes. Thank you all for helping me out!

Security and Networking / Another 11g Cf Wireless Card?
« on: July 03, 2006, 07:26:30 pm »
I found this one at I wonder if anyone got to test this one out.

I bought a C1000, but it's not with me, so I have no way of testing it. Also, I wonder how much of the speed difference a user might feel when comparing 11b and 11g cards....

Anyway, here is the link:

I am not affiliated with either Sparklan or Meritline; I was looking for a 11g CF wireless card and ran into the Meritline webpage.
