« on: May 02, 2004, 11:43:17 pm »
Hi..I just flashed 1.21 onto my C760. I inserted my symbol wifi card and it was detected. Then I went to settings/network and added wireless lan and put my SSID of my router. The card can\'t connect to my router. Any diagnotics I can perform to see what is wrong? Thanks

General Discussion / SL-5600 Lots of Questions!
« on: March 02, 2004, 11:32:02 pm »
Hi...I just got my Zaurus SL-5600 last week from amazon and its a PXA250   Also I ordered a symbol card, 2 lexar 512 CF and SD card. Then I spend a good 1 1/2 weeks reading everything on this forum and also and also all the FAQ and HOWTOs.

I have compiled a list of questions on topics I am unclear of. Lets start with my specs:

Zaurus SL-5600 PXA250
Sharp ROM 1.32 from flashed from v1.0
Symbol Wireless Card (Spectrum24)
Lexar 512MB Compact Flash card
Lexar 512MB Secure Digital card

Here comes the questions, hope you guys can help out, I know some of the questions has already been answered. Please have some patients coz I\'ll be putting this up on a site dedicated to the poodle. Thanks.

ROM from what I understand is made up of 3 files initrd.bin,, zImage.bin.

initrd.bin = filesystem with all the apps
zImage.bin= Kernel update script I presume

Available ROM for the 5600:

Sharp Original ROM 1.32 - stable
TheKompany TKC ROM 1.0 - stable, 2.0 - stable???
Zynergy ROM - stable
Openzaurus/OE - 3.3.6pre1 unstable, 3.3.5 unstable
Cacko/pdaxrom - not stable??? well...its mostly for the CL-7x0 series

Available Kernel for 5600:

Pre-emptive Standard Kernel v1.1 and v1.2 - This kernel turns off the cache erata to fix the PXA250 bug. Gives little more speed improvement.

Special Kernel v1.0,v1.1,v1.2,v1.3 - This kernel is from a japanese guy at
This is a kernel 2.4.18 with the cache erata turned off to fix the PXA250 bug and also overclocks the CPU clock speed from 400MHz to 471MHz.
Wireless Extension is also added.
ced gets credit for translating the intructions.

Sukoshi kernel - This is a popular kernel used by many CL-7x0 user over at There is a kernel for the 5600 (poodle) at his website I have no idea what feature this kernel has but people at seem to think highly of it. So it must be good.


1) From what I read, you can install a ROM and after that you can install any of the kernels above?

2) What kernel version is the pre-emptive kernel running?

3) Anyone know more about the Sukoshi kernel?

4) Which of the above ROM will have the wireless extension enabled and spectrum24 drivers installed? which will allow me to plug&play with my symbol card.

5) Do you need to turn on the wireless extension in the kernel before you   install the spectrum24 driver from

6) How do check whether wireless extension is enabled? How you turn on wireless extension is the kernel?

7) Which spectrum24 to install? I don\'t see any files specific to the 5600 on the url above.

8) In order to use kismet and Wellenreiter what patch I need? orinico and hostap patch? Where and How to patch these drivers?

9) How can I get the feature where I can change from landscape mode to potrait mode and vice-versa on the fly? I read that OZ can do that, can you enable this feature on other ROMs?

10) What is NAND? Why do NAND backup? How to do a NAND backup on the 5600? How to restore a NAND backup on the 5600?

I am very sure I had more questions that this, but at the moment thats all I remember. Please help answer some of the questions if you can.

Hi...where can I buy cheapest lexar compactflash and SD cards online? I checked on ebay, but can\'t seem to find a lexar 512MB SD. I would rather buy the CF and SD together and save on shipping since I am on the outside of the pond, england ofcourse. Cheers.
