Planet still lists the Cosmo and the Wifi-only Gemini as available on their webshop:

https://store.planetcom.co.uk/products/cosmo-communicator
https://store.planetcom.co.uk/products/gemini-pda-wifi-only

Has anybody recently bought any of them, or knows if they are still accepting orders?

Got my post approved after I have been made moderator of r/Zaurus , heh :)

On a side note, a complete mirror of Meanie's feed would be also great to find, too bad I didn't mirror it myself back in the days.

EDIT: I have tried to send an email to Meanie, I have probably found a working email address of his, fingers crossed.

I have checked at home in my personal archives but I have not found it. I'll see if I'll find the other file you mentioned, I see it was the actual package inside the .zip file. In the meantime I have tried to ask support on the www.java.com site (though I highly doubt they'll still have the archive) and tried to add a comment in these two old blogs, maybe we'll be lucky and they still have a copy of it, though I'm not sure my comments have passed through...

I have also tried to ask on Reddit, there still seem to be a couple of users lurking there, though my post is being rejected by Reddit's antispam filter, I have sent a message to the mods:

I have also done a search on archive.org, hoping that for one of the multiple redirections there would be a backup, from a different date, to an actual page, but to no avail. I have checked among all the attachments here too, no one has ever uploaded it here. I'll search through my archives this evening and let you know.

Is this required by some program you're attempting to run?

Thanks for forwarding this news. Sad to see Sailfish support to be ended, but it's understandable given the Gemini's age (it's been already 6 years!).

Hrw was OpenZaurus' release manager and a prolific poster on OESF. His work on Arm started when he bought a SL-5500.

I hope to see him logging here someday again to say hello, and wishing him many years of prolific work and fun on Arm platforms!

No signs of life on their Facebook page either, their last post is dated 10th April 2023, for the Spring Special sale offer.

I'm also wondering what's their current status, though their silence is worrisome.

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Re: Flashtool on Windows 11

Thanks for this useful hint! I wonder what does OS' memory protection have to do with a flashing tool...

Hi and welcome!

The official Sharp EZaurus site is luckily still online, and they host an update to the latest version of the system software:

http://support.ezaurus.com/sl-c3000/update/c3000update/c3000update.asp

By looking at the included update files this seems to actually be a full system install, the archive contains also an hdimage1.tgz image, I might be wrong but I believe the dictionaries are installed on the internal microdrive:

http://support.ezaurus.com/sl-c3000/update/c3000update/c3000updatecard.asp

・initrd.bin (approx. 4,337KB)
・zImage.bin (approx. 1,264KB)
・mversion.bin (approx. 16KB)
・updater.sh (approx. 7KB)
・hdimage1.tgz (approx. 19,734KB)

Otherwise, I'll check if I have a mirror of the original installation CD. I also have a SL-C3000 which I have bought second-hand from Japan, there's a high possibility the japanese dictionaries are still on the microdrive.

The issue seems to be fixed, I had no certificate issue in the last few days.

That's great to hear, thanks for your work! I hope I'll find time to test this with my devices.

Congratulations, that's nice to hear. I have been searching them on buyee from time but to no avail.

Hi, sorry for not checking myself the battery, unfortunately I don't have much free time lately. Too bad its battery is a non-standard one... If you'd be interested in buying a new one, I have now written an inquiry to Cameron Sino asking them if they have it in stock. I have attached your photo to the email; if they don't have in stock batteries specifically for this model, we might be lucky and find out that it's the same battery for another device, which they manufacture.

Check also your PM.

Thanks for the heads up, I have updated the links in the post here and in the Gemini/Cosmo subforums with the links posted in the wiki. My only concern is that the links on the wiki might be now exposed to spambots harvesting for Telegram invite links. That's why I'm posting them in a spoiler tag, which is hidden to not registered users. I wonder if a similar links protection can be added on the wiki, too.
