Software / Optimizer (for Zaurus) No Longer Retail
« on: May 29, 2008, 07:09:57 pm »

I'm the author of Optimizer a small Zaurus filesystem utility that was once a retail product.

I've decided to make the last version that was released, 1.0.6, freely available. It should work with the standard Sharp ROM and Jeode or Sun's CVM, and was tested on SL5x00 and C series Zaurus, although it is highly compatible, I even had it on Jeode on PocketPC at one point, but you may need to play around/tweak it to get it to work now.

Read my blog post for more pointless details/disclaimers, link is at the bottom of it:

Have fun!

Software / Recommended Software For Fresh Install
« on: March 01, 2006, 12:00:52 pm »
I'm got a standard SL 5500 that I've not used in a while. I'm looking to do a minimalist install on the stock Sharp 3.13 ROM.

Primarily I need

A good minimalist theme (unlike Sharp's eyeball burning attempts)
A swap file manager
A media player (I've already purchased TKCVideo a while ago, and I use the Sharp player plugin for oggs)

Are there any other recommendation, e.g. a good file manager?

My aim is to have as much free internal memory as possible, while being completely functional as a mobile media player, an encyclopaedia, occasionally run Java programs.



Sharp ROMs / Sound From Sl5500's Internal Speaker
« on: February 06, 2005, 04:05:59 pm »
I want to be able to play music (from any player doesn't matter what) from my SL5500's speaker. I know that if I install OZ I can do this (as I've tried it in the past) but I'd like to keep the Sharp ROM  - has the driver been back ported and if so how would I use it?
Utilities like buzconfig can play audio through the SL5500's cruddy piezo (sp?) speaker  on the Sharp ROM so it shouldn't be that difficult....?

General Discussion / Handango alternatives
« on: July 02, 2004, 05:50:14 am »
Handango has recently lowered its royalty rate from 70% to 60%. With the UK exchange rate being so poor, added VAT  and having to cost me a minimum £6 a throw on $ to £ conversion, I'm getting some 40-50% of the cost of the products back.

Can anybody suggest an alternative to Handango?
