Zaurus - pdaXrom / Contrib feed hosted on ibiblio is giving a 404
« on: June 08, 2017, 10:15:37 pm »
Hello Admins

As the title states the contrib feed for pdaXrom is giving me a 404.  I could sworn that I was able to access it a few weeks ago at    

For Sale / Wanted / Zaurus Commercial software on Yahoo! Japan

Nope, it isn't Picsel Browser.  Google translate pegs it as a Dictionary card.  Probably from C7x0 era.  Here's to hoping that Picsel Browser and that wicked Activision/Sunsoft Shanghai Mahjongg game (demo on the C1000 CD) show up soon.  

Zaurus Dictionary on SD card

PS - I am not the seller neither do I any sort of connection to the seller.  I would put this in Z deals but it's archived

Zaurus - Other distros support / Picsel Browser in 2017
« on: May 30, 2017, 12:48:39 am »
I finally got the firmware upgraded on my Buffalo WiFi card so it supports WPA.  

Varti asked me a few weeks ago how the web browsing was using Picsel Browser.  The results so far are a mixed bag when I use on a low ram required website with no ads like this site it works perfectly.  I can also tweak the view by changing the browser id from Picsel 1.0 to MSIE 5.5 or 6 or Mozilla 5.

 I also got it to work on the Reuters site until an ugly ram hog ad came in the page refresh.  CNN is not usable at all because it loads a barebones text only site asking me to choose version which I can't select so I can't see any headlines or content.  ARSTechnica causes Picsel browser to run out of RAM immediately

When it works the website display renders as well as my iPad.

PS: this post was submitted through Picsel Browser.  

I was in the diag menu to do a NAND backup last night after the backup I decided to check the NAND Bad Count and I have 2 bad blocks out of 8.  They are blocks 3 and 4.  So how many more bad blocks can I before the little guy dies?

It seems like yesterday that I was picking out my avatar for this forum while I waiting for my first pup, Hachiko, to be delivered.

Zaurus - Hardware discussion / What Was Your Favorite Zaurus Line
« on: April 09, 2017, 12:53:52 am »
The 5x00 and 6000 had the tablet form factor with the slide out keyboard.  The 6000 was also the only Zaurus to have built-in WiFi and Bluetooth.  

The Cxx0 and Cxx00 had that wonderful swivel CG silicon screen.  The Cxx0 had battery flexibility that allowed you to decide how thick a Zaurus that you wanted and an ATi dedicated video chip.  The Cxx00 had USB on the go and built-in micro drives in most models.  So which one was your favorite?

General Discussion / Anybody Know How To Spoof An Sd Cards Unique Id
« on: March 24, 2017, 12:14:49 am »
Found a Sharp website where they are offering Picsel Browser for Zaurus for sale on a 256mb SD card

Google Translate did an excellent job translating it.  Speculatrix and Jon_J, we have our answer on why it will only work on the SD card that it is shipped on......

"This software is designed to operate only with the SD memory card that was shipped at the time of shipment using the unique ID of each SD memory card. (Although it is possible to back up to other media, it does not work.)"

So who knows to spoof an SD cards id?  I have a Panasonic 512MB that we can use for testing.

I noticed TyrannoZaurus is gone. I have located the most update page on the wayback machine and edited my sig to point to that.  All ipks are downloadable but the Broken Sword cutscenes links are dead.

General Discussion / Anybody Tempted By The Cheap C7xx Models On Ebay
« on: March 20, 2017, 11:54:17 pm »
I noticed some cheap c700, c750, c760 and c860s listed on eBay from Japan lately.  All under $50US.  Anybody got the Pokemon urge to "gotta catch them all"?

Security and Networking / Eye-fi Components Identified
« on: March 18, 2008, 10:23:02 am »
IkonTools have cracked open the casing on an Eye-Fi and identified the components.  The Eye-Fi is an SD combo card that contains 2GB of flash and and WiFi adapter all in the size of a standard SD Card (which would be flush mount in our Zs)     Hopeful one of the wonder genius programmers that hang out here can hack up some drivers for our lovely Zs.

In case their site goes down again (I had trouble reaching it earlier)  here are the details.  For some reason the post controls are disabled for me so I can't attach a pic.  **SORTED OUT*** - Don't use the OESF Default theme; it's busted.

pelrun has created an enhanced SD driver that should work for the 7x0 and 860 machines running the 2.4.18 kernels.  He needs testers.  You can find them here.

EDIT: edited the link to make it work under the forum software.
