5x00 Hardware / Failproof Unbricking Method For Sl-5000d And Sl-5500
« on: February 04, 2008, 01:02:16 pm »
Hi, to all the SL-5000d and SL-5500 users out there with a bricked zaurus
As you all know there's no way to make a NAND backup, just as you can with the SL-5600 and above.
But, there's another method, the JTAG interface.

I've succesfully restored my bricked SL-5000d using this method. I've bricked my zaurus by flashing a SL-5500 3.13 ROM onto my SL-5000d.
Only the diag menu was accesible, the unit would not boot overtwice. The flash memory was in good state (passed the checks)

All you need to have is the special JTAG cable, software to use it, and the original SHARP rom image (the 16mb file)

You can PM for more info

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


sorry if it's a bit late, but i'm a newcomer to the zaurii world.
have you tried the "clear diag boot flag" option or something like that in the manteinance menu.
select that option and then, make a full reset.

hope it works

hmm, ok, i'll try to find the info for you, i can't answer all this right now  

there's no "hard line modem" though if you mean the dialup 56k type.

the OS is in ROM but the rom is flashable! however i have no idea how to flash CE back if it is needed by any chance.

did you get any new info meanwhile btw?

i think this says it all. look at the third row in the right column. The ROM is definitively NOT flashable. the best bet in this case will be to load linux to a CF, like most HPC linux ports do.

EHEHEHE! Do not worry, in the meanwhile i' m finishing to compile all the feed that i need for the GPE PIMS and Kernel Stuff of the Beta3.
When you' ll compile the haret tool i' ll begin to dump the GPIO of te SIG and see if the Corgi kernel can be modified to fit in the SIG.

Hi everyone, i have a spare sig i could use for testing and i also have a working gentoo system which i could use to compile. If there's anything i can do to help you, i'll be pleased in doing so.
