It's been years since I started up the Zaurus, and I broke something.
I snapped the super tiny switch toggle on the motherboard that is triggered by the plastic slider that locks in the battery door.

What should I do? A spring flew out from behind the little black switch, I recovered it only to have it bounce into oblivion shortly thereafter.

I'm handy with soldering. I'll send it to someone to fix. I'll do anything really. The unit is great other than this, it doesn't light up charging now so I think it needs to be fixed.

Thanks for any suggestions. I'd be happy to just solder a couple points together and have it remain in a permanent position if that would be advisable.

microSD is pretty amazingly small!
This could prove to be useful for our zaurii, maybe even for internal modding or something.

Maybe some of you probably have heard of this thing but I just found out about it.
I personally think this is the bees knees.

It's from Korea. The company is MIMO. The screen is bright, sharp, and crisp (says this review I found).
It uses displayport, runs off of just USB, and is fully USB powered.
It has XP, Vista, and OSX drivers but no Linux yet. sad.gif
The OS sees it as just another monitor, and can mirror or extend. It just runs some extra processes in the background, but they only take up to 40MB RAM. I guess that means that old Zaurus is out, if/when the Linux drivers appear.

I totally don't need it, and I certainly don't need to be blowing $200 (which is a fair/good price for this IMO) on anything right now, but man I sure want this thing!

I would like to have it as an extra monitor for my desktop, then grab it, connect it to my tablet and take it with me!
I could also keep the tablet in my briefcase, with a USB cord coming out connected to the small monitor in my coat pocket, acting as a 7-inch touchscreen controller when I'm on the metro or around town. Here's the bonus why that would be handy: This has audio out, audio in, mic, and webcam too!

Please someone help me get this working
I've installed on the SD and can't do the post-install part after reboot:

"- After auto reboot, untar the modules:

cd /
tar zxvf /where/to/modules-debian.tgz "

What do I type in place of the " where/to " ? I've been searching days for a simple Andromeda install guide from scratch. I've found great guides from all you geniuses like 2or0 and ZDevil but I can't get this working.

• I have a C3100
• The modules-debian.tgz file is in the root of compact flash card
• If I type startx I can see the desktop image and mouse cursor but can't control anything
• I never have had to type or press "1" or "2" at bootup

I have some knowledge and am relatively resourceful, however, simple things like mounting sometimes escape me so perhaps it is a small mistake

Thank you for all you do. We are still out here.

These used to be at conics and other online retailers and are long gone.

I'm looking for an extendable telescoping stylus that will fit perfectly in the clamshell series of Zaurus (I have a SL-C3100).

If anyone has one or a link to where I can get one, I'd be very thankful.
