My Content
4 Dec 2004

I've been playing around with my brand new SL-C3000 for two weeks, initially converting it and then installing all sorts of stuff. During the first two days I rebooted the device a couple of times (shutdown didn't seem to work but reboot worked fine) but after the latest reboot, it seemed stuck at the initial screen with the SHARP logo.

I can't read what it says exactly, but it looks like the grep command can't find the stab file or something. It loops indefinitely and if I CTRL-C it, the machine reboots. After some investigation on the web, I found out that I can get into the service menus by pressing D-M or D-P while attaching AC power. I've seen a NAND Flash Restore option on page 3 but I havent got a backup of the OS image on CF. (only on the internal HD...) Does anybody know whether I can just write the image that I've downloaded from Conics (SYSTC300.DBK) to a CF card using some other device and restore from that? Also, are there any pitfalls in using this functionality that I should be aware of?

Of course it would be my preference to solve this issue from the Zaurus itself: I've also read that you can boot into a console directly by pressing D-B but this doesn't seem to work for me... Does anybody know how to get this to work on the SL-C3000? The only thing I can get into at the moment are the service menus - the Japanese menu that I got by pressing "Ok" at bootup doesn't work either anymore...

If anybody can give me some hints, I'd appreciate it enormously.

Many thanks!!!
