I just turned on my SL-C860 for the first time since 2007 and it still runs fine.

It's running Cacko ROM.

How to reset to factory defaults so I can sell it?

Thanks!

Hi and welcome back bobo, judging from your join date you're one of the oldest users here on the forum smile.gif
Both the Sharp ROM and Cacko have a restore backup function, but it only works if you have previously done a backup yourself. Failing that, the easiest way would be to do a full NAND restore. Trisoft still has NAND backups for all the Zaurus models, including the SL-C860: http://www.trisoft.de/en_c860howto.htm. These are backups of the english version of the Sharp ROM. Note that, from what I have seen, the NAND backup tool can only recognize older SD card up to 2GB of size, and the Cacko installer supports only up to 1GB cards. Bigger CF cards might work, though.

Thank you!!

Installed that Nand backup from the link you gave me using the flash after boot method. All works. Much appreciated.

Now to find a buyer wink.gif
