Seeing as the pdaxrom feeds are mostly deaded, does anyone have the ipk for the synergy client for pdaxii13, as packaged by desertrat?

It would be supremely useful for me.

Does anybody understand the intracacies of Ka/pi with regarding to storing image data? There seems to be some buggage lurking around.

If I have a photo stored inside a contact, I can sync it to a second computer by selecting Synchronize on the second machine. The second machine receives the contact with the embedded photo, but then when it writes back the data to the first machine the first machine loses its photo.

The Write Back operation always writes back a file that has no image data. It's rather annoying.

The other thing is that the actual stored vcard file doesn't have any image data in either. When you do a direct sync, it looks like it creates a temporary vcf file with embedded images, which is what it sends over to the other machine. But this temporary file is not created when syncing via upload/download, meaning that image data is lost.

Besides taring and gzipping the kabc folder and uploading that for synching to my server, and using the same method to sync between machines, does anyone know of anyway to fix the above problems?

After much nail-biting, I decided to back everything up and then leap from the Sharp ROM to pdaXrom on my C3100.

Very nice. Very pleased with it....except for one thing. I can't connect to my Windows laptop. I'm using the linux.inf file for the Windows driver when it is recognised as a RNDIS device, but it gets to installing the 8023x.sys file and sits there until I unplug the USB cable. Then it finishes installing, but hasn't installed properly. The RNDIS device appears in Device Manager, but there is no device in Network Connections. I've tried all manner of re-installs and linux.inf variants all to no avail.

So I thought that I would try PdaXii13 instead as I believe that it's based on the 2.4 kernel and thought that it might help with the problem.

But I now have no update menu on the Zaurus. If I turn on while holding down 'OK', it just boots into PdaXrom. I can get to the service menu by holding down D+M, or get the flashing lights from D+C (although they flash indefinitely, no matter what is on the CF or SD card).

So how can I fix things here. Is there a way to get the RNDIS driver working on WindowsXP? Is there a way to get the 'OK' menu back? Can I update using the service menu? How can I get PdaXii13 after having installed PdaXrom R198?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Bit of a problem here.

I have an SL-C3100 (original Sharp ROM). It's started to suffer from not waking up after being suspended. I found a thread here detailing the same problem, but there was no resolution.

Anybody got any idea what I can do to fix this? I've taken everything off fast load and uninstalled anything that starts up on boot, but it's still the same. I have to take the battery out and reboot it for it to work again after it has been suspended by the on/off button, the menu, or the power saving.

I noticed that the source for HandySDL has finally been released. By the looks of things, the original author lost the source and started it again. Took me a couple of hours, but I've got it working! I've been after this for years. I love my Lynx.

The screen seems to be rotated for non-clamshell Zaurii, and the sound stutters, but apart from that, it look pretty much full speed on my SL-C750. I'll have a look at rotating it. Make sure you run it in magnified mode.

You'll need the executable and the lynx boot rom. You'll have find the game roms yourself.
