5x00 General discussions / Collie Still Broke---need Help

Hi, I don't know if you have already achieve your purpose. I think that if you want the files in order to install OZ there will be someone at OZ subforum that will be glad to provide you with.

As far as I know, you have to format CF with FAT16, to copy the files inside the card and then just follow the install instructions.

Do you have SL-5500 or 5000?, I'm a bit confused. It's the 5000 and early model? If so, maybe it needs special rom. I don't know.

I'm afraid I'm not the smartest zaurus user.

Good luck.

That original problem did eventually get solved however other problems kept popping up. I found that this collie to be about the most unstable contraption ever built. I know now why it was put up on ebay for me to buy. My patients finally wore out and well... that collie is now in collie heaven.

A while back I started a thread seeking some advice on teaching my collie some new tricks. The old thread is here.

Well it's still not working. Based on the advice in the previous thread it would seem that the files I'm trying to use are somehow corrupt. So what I'm looking for now is there someone out there in Zaurus land that would be willing to put the nessesary files onto a CF card for me. For a fee of course. The idea would be that all I have to do is follow the flashing instructions with this card.
 What I would like is OZ (the most recent) / Opie / Card fs. The card fs is that one where the OS will reside on the SD card thus freeing up a bunch of the installed ram. I have a PNY 1gb card for that duty.



 I fear the brush chipper will be the next and final stop for this collie.

Jon J, Thanks, Got that one covered. File extentions are not hidden. The file names on the cf are exactly as in the instructions.

You 'may' be able to get out of the diag menu by simply using the cancel/on/off button... if you haven't damaged anything.

I tried the cancel/on/off button and it merely turns it off and on. When it comes on it is still in that diag mode. Would the fact that I'm writing these files to the cf with a windowsXP computer cause this? The cf is formated to FAT. If I were to download the files directly to the cf card using a window98 computer be any better? Or must I do all this in a linux shell?

I recently bought a 5000 off ebay. It had a flaky version on OZ on it that continually crashed. So I elected to install the latest OZ-Opie with card-fs. I downloaded the appropriate files from Henges. Copied them to a cf, changed their names, followed all the instructions to the letter. It wouldn't get past the two lights being on for more than a couple of seconds. So I tried an alternate method. By pressing I think it was the G and P and reset button to enter the diag mode. From there I went about installing from the CF. The two leds stayed on for near 2 minutes then it went back to the diag display. That is where I am now. Don't know how to get out this diag mode. I have tried leaving it unpluged from power for several days with no battery in it, hunted through every menu in that diag mode. No different. At this point I'm at a loss. This newbie needs help. I have a paper weight that has sharp written on it.
