Just curious where the crowd stands since Sharp introduced these three pretty close together.

Also useful from a support and development standpoint.

Voted. I own C3000, 2 SL-5500, and 2 SL-6000. I am really wanting to get 6000W but that is off topic.

For the people who have C3000 and C3100. Is there much reason to upgrade???

After insalling the Cacko beta rom it gives 64mb of memory and almost 400mb of program area to install apps. I have not even used the default sharp rom so i dont know how things are partitioned out on that, anyone care to fill me in on it?

What do users of the C3100 have b/c the 3100 is supposed to have more memory? Thanks.

It's in the sig:

1x5000
1x5500
1x6000L
1x1000
1x3000
1x3100

I just got the 3100. I was quite happy with just the 3000 but a friend of mine went to visit Japan, and with the Yen so weak against the Canadian dollar (104Y to $1CAN), I couldn't resist. 530,000Y from Nani wa Denki - about $513 Canadian.

Question for people with more than one....

What do you use them all for?

(keep one at office and one at home?, etc)

I have a 860 With a died charging circuitry (waiting for me to find someone with skills/hardware to repair it as sending it back to Japan for repair without waranty would be too expensive) and a c3000 which will very soon run pdaxrom tongue.gif (thanks to shashz who helped me a lot with my porting effort) ...

Indeed interesting. :-) Hi Omicron!
Thanks to Omicron I own a C3000. I have now a second C3000 as a backup and for experiments, bought from another forum member.

From the support standpoint: I have configured many, many programs on my C3000 now, I'd say about 30 or 40 programs, many of them console programs which needed a lot of work to be usable (compiling, special configuration steps etc.)
I think others have, too.

Aditionally I see that most people have a C3000 so far.
So I assume the C3000 has the biggest amount of supported software.
And that alone would be a criterion for me now to buy a C3000 and not a C3100. C1000 maybe for financial reasons, but if money did't count, I'd buy a C3000.

Now we only need the full Cacko 1.23 for C3000 :-)
But I must say, the Cacko 1.23b1 is already very nice. I'm not sure what 1.23 could improve...

2x C3000.
One for daily use, the other one as

1. a backup machine in case the main one fails (have a backup which needs only few steps and about half an hour to restore / duplicate the entire setup of the main machine 1:1)
2. for experiments, such as using suspicious software, configuring around without the need to fear that I shoot the setup by overwriting imprtant libraries etc.
3. to explore the hardware, i.e. take apart and look what can be done 8-)
4. maybe later also as a Shoutcast receiver in the living room, connected to the stereo
5. ...or as a VoIP phone

I have been interested in upgrading or just buying a C3100. Daniel3000 seems to have said that there is more software available for the C3000. Could some one explain to me how that is? I thought if you were running a sharp based rom then any of the software that works on one Z will work on another. I dont understand how some software would work on the C3000 and not the C3100. Could some clarify or set me straight if i missunderstood the comment.

Well, you are right about most IPK packages created for the Cxx00 models.

What I mean is software which is not yet available as an IPK package, i.e. software compiled from source code or softwware available as a loose bunch of files (Zaurus binary, libs, config files... which have to be arranged properly to work on one or the other Zaurus).

Sure, from both kinds of software IPK packages can be made, but that is quite some work, especially if on every small update of the software a new package has to be created and distributed.

And of course there are also IPKs which have beeen created by unexperienced people who did't consider the different file system layouts on the different models. So if you let the IPK place a file into a directory which is linked to different locations on two different zaurus models, you have to take care there is enough room and that the destination directory is writable etc etc.

Also, you have to consider avaiability of libraries and declaration of dependencies. I am not sure the Cacko 1.23 ROM on the C1000 or C3100 provides the same pre-installed libraries as the Cacko 1.23b1 ROM on the C3000.

What works on the 3000 will in most cases also work on the 3100, but not necessarily on the 1000 or the Cxxx models.

That is a quite complex issue, so it is very hard to make sure that packe XY created on and for a C3000 with Cacko Rom 1.23b1 also works on the C3100 Cacko 1.23 or even a Cxxx.


I for one do not really care about other models when I create an IPK. So far I have only created one IPK, the Shoutcast Player / Recorder IPK mentioned in another thread. But I playn to pack more software into easily installable packages.
Due to limited time, I'll not be able to care about other models.
Of course if someone complains that my package does not work on his machine and can provide exact information what does not work and ahy, I can repackage the thing in a way that it will work. But that's all.

Daniel,

I'm thinking about getting a 2nd C3000 for similar reasons. Any chance we could get you
to detail your backup/restore procedure? Seems like a handy procedure to have around - I'm
sure many people will eventually benefit.

thanks
