padishah_emperor, thanks for the feedback!

Not found any problems yet apart from the 6000's media player (boy, it's ugly) which seems to play a few of my VBR MP3's at 32Khz instead of 44.1KHz, that could be the player itself rather than the ROM, unless anyone knows any different


Yes, the Sharp Player from 6000 is ugly, but it's capable of playing OGG files, since it understands the old OGG plugin written for 5x00 series. That's the main reason I've added it..

Ugly.. yes but with another backgound & some icons..

I was thinking the same thing: manually reloading all of my added ipks is a mess :-(

They use the standard rom and convert the menus into english but it is not a complete conversion. I got my 860 2 or 3 weeks ago and found Maslovsky's ROMs MUCH better, it just feels nicer than the factory shipped ROM.

I'd at least recommend you familiarise yourself with Linux beforehand and feel comfortable with the command line, I personally would not recommend an 860 for absolute beginners unless you want to learn 'getting technical', others may have other views. I had a week of crying and hair pulling when I first got mine (I'm a UNIX sysadmin), but the Z's are the best thing on the planet. ;-)


Thanks for the reply. I am a windows man - notice your not - but I started very early and have a good knowledge of DOS etc. - remember windows 1 - !!!!
Others have said that you can get on with using the zaurus as an advanced PIM tool without having to have a good knowledge of LINUX to start with but can learn with the Zaurus. Is it possible following info. found here an else where to backup the converted ROM from shirtpocket then use this ROM and then go back again with out too much trouble - I have problem about loosing personal data - I'll just push it back in again from my Outlook data file etc.

The reason I'm interested in this ROM is becasue of it's compatibilty with Blue tooth etc.

Thanks again for the advice.

sorry for the question!
Before upgrading I wanted to get a list of all my installed applications, but I couldn't find a way ipkg to list the installed ipks.
'ipkg list' lists only the available packages, not the installed ones.
The package manager lists them, but this is a gui app and I don't feel like typing everything by hand...
So did I overlook something in 'ipkg --help'

cheers,
Kathrin

Hey maslovsky,

Were you guys ever able to get the sorting in the address book straight as well as have the Date/Time reference US standards (M/D/Y)? The last I checked, address book didn't sort right...so I left my "hacked" libs in to allow it to work appropriately.

For those who are not familiar with commandline and want very little hassle, I recommend tkcbackup. The app will backup all your settings and data and it will allow you to easily restore the individual folder or files. The key point here is that it is all point and click. It will require a CF or SD card.

gizard, you don't need to know any linux to get started using the Z. The hardest part when you start with the Z will be doing a nand backup and switch to a new ROM. That does not take linux knowledge, but ability to follow technical instructions. The more you learn linux, the more you will unlock the Z's potential.

Well following technical instructions should not be a problem at all for me. I used to have an Ipaq - (opps sorry is that allowed to be mentioned here!? wink.gif ) which got half way through a ROM update and crashed - the only thing that would work on it was file explorer - but the touch screen input was rotated 90 degrees to what you could see and endless error messages -still with a card reader and a copy of the rom i managed to get it to update it's self....

Anyway thanks for the info again. I will probably play with the english conversion for a bit and then try out this ROM - I assume that it's still possible to the use the english sync prog with Outlook etc. ? or the Qutopia desk top etc?
My only slight issue is that if I change the ROM will it invalidate my Hardware warranty with shirtpocket?
Plus can this ROM be set to sort of UK regional settings as opposed to US style?

Maslovsky,

One more question...do you have a laundry list of what the cryllic pieces were that you added in the ROM down to the file level? I would like to remove some of these (unfortunately I can't speak nor read russian), so I would like to free up the space.

Thanks!

you might want to bring up these question in a new thread in the newbie forum. As this is off topic.

yes the english windows sync program will work.

maslovsky:
Great ROM, I like the LCD control icon on the task bar, nice touch. One question, what does the mirror.sh do? I read through it and am puzzled, mirroring of the display - is this for connecting to a CF video-out card?
Thanks for your continuing support of the Qtopia based ROM.
Jerry

-----------Edit---------
Doh! Didn't read the readme text closely enough, it's there under Qtopia

- Added CF VGA card support application

Never mind....

Found an issue, Prboom no longer runs properly when launched from the icon (which makes it run in magnified mode). From the command line it runs fine. I'm using the updated version of prboom that was ported by zports. It has worked fine on 1.20.

Thanks for this great Rom!
Got everything from my "Daniela Rom" up and running again :-))
Plus the ratoc-usb-host card is running like a charm :-)

Thanks again,
Kathrin
*very happy*
