I'm having trouble getting a nand backup working

I've got a 256mb , 512mb and 1gig sd card in front of me

all formatted to FAT (16).

when I try to do a nand backup it says "can not initialize SD" , the service page under sd also fails.

However if I boot the zaurus up as normal it will recognize the card!

Any ideas coz I'm confused!

Do yourself a favor and upgrade to cako instead, its based of the sharp rom with some improvments
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=109571\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

I've been contemplating that but Its taken me a while to get the PDA setup the way I want it . Guess it'd be wise to do it as I hear good things about cacko.

I really need to know the definative way to backup and restore my device so should cacko not be for me I can get my device back into the state it was before.

Im really unsure on how to do a backup and what procedures to follow.

is there any articles etc on it i can read?

*goes and sits in the numpty corner*

I've got an sl-c3100 and I've seen that on the support site theres updates but theres no english translation available for the page some I'm unsure if I need the updates and if I do how to install them! Is there anyone out there whos already done it, and if so are the steps documented anywhere?

i have a 3100 , i use bluetooth with bluez over the USB host cable (with a usb bluetooth dongle) and I have an Amicom wifi card. If you don't mind the bluetooth dongle dangling down then you'll be fine with it. Its a shame both of these aren't built in but it works good enough for me as is .

i have a Sitecom LN-013 (RTL8150 chipset) adaptor

i've installed the netswitch package from meanies site.

i plug the device in and plug the cable in and although the 100 light is set green eth0 doesn't register as active under ifconfig...

when i do an lsmod the rtl18150-1 driver isnt loaded

i did an insmod rtl18150-1 and it brought itself up!

so it looks like i'm going to have to start it by hand .

anyone know what i need to edit to fix this!?!?!?!

OK i've done it! its all over! Success is mine!

Device: SL-C31000
Phone : Sony Ericsson (although tbh its not the phones at fault).
Serivce Provider : Virgin Mobile (uk) (t-mobile base provider).

Network profile Applet, you don't need anything more than either

initial string ATZ

phone *99#  (which will dial the default connection)


initial string ATZ

*99***EID# (which will dial the profile of choice on your phone).

+-- the problem --+

Failing to route any traffic from the device when no default route is provided.

gateway comes back as (set by pppd as default).

+-- the solution --+

The default gateway address should be the same as your IP address!

fix (as long as you only use ppp0 for GPRS)

first back up your /etc/ppp/ip-up script


edit /etc/ppp/ip-up

at the end of the script add the following

if [ "$1" = "ppp0" ]; then

    route del default gw $5
    route add default gw $4


save and exit

what that does is on detecting a ppp0 connection remove the default gateway ( and replace it with the current assigned IP address.

I can confirm its working here as I can now ping google on an IP UP!!!!!!


took me a while, been round the houses a few time but I've got it. Thanks to all who supplied their help.

If a mod could (or would like too) make this sticky or add it to a howto etc the please do it as I'll probably not be the only person whos having this problem! (just drop me a credit  ).

ok i've found the problem!!!!! I just now need the solution

when the ppp connection is made it finds no default gateway as it showed before.

I decided to run it through the laptop again and sure enough that has no default gatweway either, it just uses the GIVEN IP ADDRESS!

if you look back up these posts you'll see thats the problem i've been having, i get given the address as the default remote address as it can't work it out!

This fucks the routing.

What it needs to do is to fall back to automatically routing the traffic OVER the IP address

to prove this i did

route -del default gw
route -add default gw IPADDRESS

and when i pinged google

I GOT TRAFFIC BACK AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thing is I need this to be done automatically! Is there a switch in PPPD something in the peers file or the like that will do this for me! Or will i have to script it myself

at least I've found the problem! I just need the final bit!

thanks for everyone help so far !

thanks for that, I know the settings for my gprs are correct due to the fact that with the phone on its own I can connect to the net.

I have a question for you, I'm assuming you use 2 in the dial program as 2 is the EID of the Data comm profile (not the net profile?) do you have 2 data comm profiles or just one datacomm and one internet profile?

right I've gone through everything and i can confirm that ip-up is getting called it just doesn't appear in the log...

now heres the sting , and i think its the final part of my problem...

the w800i has 2 profiles that make up the connection theres the datacomm profile which contains the APN address and PAP settings and theres the internet settings which contains the gateway address , proxy settings and comms type i.e http.

I've done a bit of testing which involved deleteing the working profiles off my phones and creating any old one that has bum settings...

I start the network and check the /tmp/bluetooth-ppp-log and guess what , it shows that it can't find the gateway etc.

So my assumption, based on what I've been doing is this...

I'm being able to invoke the modem on the phone, but its not invoking the connection profile , wether i give it the +CGDCONT version and use *99# or if I use the *99***1# version...

I now believe the issue likes in the peers/BLUETOOHXXXXX script, I've played around with the settings to the chat app and so I'm going back to try and play with that again.

What I would appriciate from someone is an upload of their WORKING peers file with a working +CGDCONT string in it so I can ensure the syntax is correct.

My friend at work has the w800i working on another phone network and another PDA and he told me that he had trouble with the +CGDCONT string format. I guess mines something to do with that and the modem init.

I'm close to getting it working i think its just a tetchy little bitch

one thing i have noticed is in the log file the LAST entries are

local IP address
remote IP address
primary DNS address
secondary DNS address

the /etc/ppp/ip-up script doesn't get invoked?

is that right, back init'd day im sure you should then say the /etc/ppp/ip-up script being invoked?

if its not happening then why?

my head is now turning into melted cheese


as a rule PPPD SHOULD invoke the ip-up script when a connection is made as far as I am aware.

im wondering now if i should just force it to start somewhere but to me that sounds wrong . Funny that the wlan works fine


i added touch /tmp/wibble

to the ip-up script

so i know its getting invoked...

i'll add some echo's to pipes to trace the file

hopefully i'll find the prob soon

ok this is odd,

I have no resolve.conf i find that a tad disturbing as that means no dns entries would work!

i ran route

and got * UH 0 0 0 ppp0
default UG 0 0 0 ppp0

which to me looks right

however when i try to ping as its ip

i get

ping: sendto: Operation not permmitted!

all very confusing...

I don't think its getting the remote host properly and subsiquently I'm not getting an IP address which works as with the one given I can't find my device and i should be able to if it was online correctly. (ie i cannot ping to my zaurus when its online).

ok this might be simple it might not be...i have the device up the connection is made..

but I can't ping anything , say for instance

in the log file i get.

Could not determine remote IP address: defaulting to

local IP address
remote IP address
primary DNS address
secondary DNS address

could it be a routing issue in PPP? could it not be setting up the default route to pass all net traffic over the established connection now?

thats the only thing i can think off atm :S

AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! GOT THE BASTARD! I finally have a PPP connection betweeen my zaurus and my W800i

and do you know what..after going round the bloody houses to find out what the problem was

the error im getting is with regards to PAP, the authentication is failing...


my provider does not require a password field so i never bothered to supply one!

after reading this snippet

" Password
    Same goes for the password as for the username, if you have one, enter it here, otherwise, enter anything, just as long as it isn't empty, or PalmOS will give you an error when you try to connect."

from a website to do with Palm devices i thought well that makes sense..

added password to the password field , just so it had something...

and it connected first time! after all that..pratting around....

bloody buggering bastard thing!

now I've got a connection i've just got to find out why it wont connect to a website etc...

thanks for the help...looks like i'd have been up and running ALOT sooner if i'd bothered to add some crap in the password field .
