6000 - Tosa / Battery Source Needed

I cant seem to find it, could you post a link?  And can you ship to the US?

6000 - Tosa / Battery Source Needed
« on: January 11, 2008, 06:32:13 pm »
I have just rediscovered how great my Tosa is (after i "dropped" my treo 700w hard against the ground), but the battery is fairly tired.  I have looked through the forums and the sources that are mentioned seem to have dried up.  Anyone know were I can pick up a battery or two?  I would even be willing to buy a sled if it had a good battery.

Thanks adf.  I would prefer to use a newer beta on my 6000 if its possible.  The uses I really have for the zaurus at this time are:

Mail reading (using ompi) but wanting to use something else.
web browsing, dillo, links, and firefox all work for me on the pdaxrom
minicom, to serial into hp switches at work (works but is a bit of trial, and it crashes on the older hp 4000 and cisco 5300's)
irc (works fine in any rom i try)
project management ( planner works ok in pdaxrom)
password management (safedee works great in sharp rom, the portabase is fine in others)
notes, and documentation writing.  Abiword is slow but, most roms have some decent light editors.
perl coding when i have time
command line work (ssh mostly)
audio playback (mp3,m4a from itunes), mplayer has worked for this in the past and i have the thekkompany audio player for the sharp rom.

video playback, would be very nice but it has been about as much fun as rubbing my face with a flaming cheese grater.  No matter the rom, Im just to dense to get mplayer to playback real welll.

vpn into my office.  We maintain a cisco vpn at the office.  I had some success with vpnc that i put together from posts around the forum but it was unreliable.  

Voice recording would also be nice, and its one of the reasons I got the 6000.  dictating to the 6000 with the sharp rom is not spectacular but it is sorta functional.  But I can always do it on my phone if I have to.  I wish I could do this in pdaxrom if possible.

games are not a huge concern.  I wish I had time in my day to say it was  maybe later.

Two of the main gripes i had with pdaxrom (and OZ) were syncing with outlook and working alarms.  But both of those issues are solved with my work mandated treo 700w and over priced verizon wireless plan.  

If i had to pick to things I would want to fix the most while using pdaxrom it would have to be the minicom issues and the vpn.  If i could do those things along with the stuff that allready works I would be able to leave my laptop in its bag or at my desk a whole lot more, which is what the 6000 was purchased for.    Beyond that working video would make my daughter happy

I guess what im really poking at is this.. Is it worth the effort to run pdaxrom on my 6000 or should I just sell it and buy a 3100?  I have been really happy with the 6000 as a piece of hardware but it seems to be getting slowly dropped by all the roms i really want to use.

As I flash back to pdaxrom, my memory fails me.  Can packages for beta 3 and beyond be installed on beta1?

Does padxrom have a working calendar/alarm system?  When i left gpe-calendar was almost working.

So i have been off my zaurus for about 8 months.  I ran off and had to use a treo 700w at work.  The treo is only about 60% functional though and now that im moving on to a new project I want to give my 6000 another try as mobile tool.  

Currently im running the sharp rom with a custom kernel and some thekompany apps.  But I have a very large desire to get back to pdaxrom, or maybe OZ.  I have been reading through months of posts and it seems that pdxrom is still kicking and moving forward on the clamshells but i dont see any new releases for the tosa.  Is that correct, or am I just missing something obvious?

what are the hardware needs for a tester spot?  Do you have to use a clam shell or does a 6000 work


For Sale / Wanted / Looking For 6000 Sled

The usual places seem to no longer have the sled for my 6000 listed.  I knew I should have picked one up before.  Does anyone know where these can still be found?

Sorry it took me time to reply.  I have had to leave my Z by the wayside to use my treo 700w for work.  I have to be able to sync with outlook (or at least exchange or syncml).  Im not sure where i got the file you are looking for.  I will dig through my backups and see if I can find it someplace.  If I can be of any help let me know.

Im really glad to see the progress on the tosa.  I was forced to move on to a treo 700w (which as far as I know does not run linux .... yet ) for work but Im going to have to pull out the 6000l and give the new image a look see.

Thats great to hear.  I have had to stop using my z (at least for now) and start using a wm5 device for work since I could not get all the pieces i needed to interact with the office.  But I am close and cant wait to see oz with working alarms.
