Hi all,
Does anyone here in the UK have any spare SL-5500 "compatible" styluses that they would be willing to post me? I'm willing to post a couple of quid as payment if necessary.
Thanks! smile.gif

I just purchased an "EasyDrive" 2.0GB SD card from Ebay, however when I plug it into my Zaurus it freezes for a couple of seconds but doesn't show the card. Any idea on how to fix this? Or is the card incompatible?

I'm using the Sharp ROM version 3.13.

Ok, I love my Zaurus 5500, however, a friend of mine used to have a Psion Revo, and I adored the keyboard and of course the landscape shape. I often run my zaurus in landscape mode because I find it more pleasant to look it. However, obviously while it's in landscape mode you have to buy a pocket top keyboard or whatever to type in this mode, which I don't have.

So here's my plan, lets convert the 5500 into a clamshell! I mean maybe it is a pointless exercise, but my plan shouldn't be too complicated. My idea is to get a broken revo, dismantle, somehow power the keyboard processingy bit of the revo motherboard (dunno if thats possible), and hook that up to an IR LED. Then modify IRK to use those signals.

How possible do you think this is? Am I going insane? Are there better ways of doing this, like mini IR keyboards that are already the same width as the zaurus?

Hi folks,
As I mentioned in this post, I suggested that a custom SDL library be written, that automatically scales oversized (e.g. 640x480) games and other apps down to 320x240, for use on older zauruses or in fact any other PDA with a lower resolution screen. I don't know how well it would work since these games would've been compiled for XScales rather than StrongARM's but it's worth a shot I think. Is this possible to create?

Hi folks,
Basically my plan is to turn my Sharp Zaurus SL5500 into an always on, silent, low power webserver. However I'm not sure where to begin and haven't had much luck getting apache to work on it. Can anyone give me a step by step guide on what rom to use, what webserver to install and how to install it etc.? I don't mind if it requires reflashing. I basically need a webserver which supports PHP and I might try running a MySQL on it as well.
Thanks in advance!
