There test rom for SL-C1000/C3100

http://212.10.30.205/rc10/sashz/test/kathr...kita.zip.md5sum

please test.

Regarding repartion tool.
Please notice before using them you need to the fix the booloard, because the original Sharp bootloader can't handle more 64 MB.

WARNING: Bootloader fix and repartion is only tested on the C1000 series - C3100 users must have full ROM backup (NAND backup) in order to restore if theres any problems flashing.

Will test tonight.  What do you mean, -change- the bootloader?    That's going to be a biiiiit tricky here, as the only bootloader I'm aware of is the one built into the SL-C3100.

Got one handy, along with instructions on the install?

we fixed builtin bootloader for remove 64MB root partition limit problem  in original bootloader impossibe create root partition large than 64MB. With fixed bootloader possible use root partition up to 121MB (with 121 MB root partition second partition (user partition) will hide).

Look NAND Flash utils in installer.

if you want install with default partitions, you not need to use flash utils.

Well, I would like some instructions as to how to actually install the RC11.

However, at the moment I am only able to boot the Z into single user mode.  I wiped the drive during a partial install of OpenBSD, and then I panicked when it wouldn't load properly, so I re-flashed the NAND with the one from the Tri Soft website, which means I lost the boot loader that OpenBSD was using.  Will I be able to test this without actually being in the original Qtopia first?  Or can the installation be done in either single user mode, or is there a NAND image available?  I suppose a further question would be, does pdaXrom rely on being able to access the hard drive as it came from the factory such as the Sharp rom does?

Hm... I'm think it was bad idea for me to use bootloader fix... Installation program said that all done, press OK to reboot. After OK it shut Z down. And PowerLED turned off... No reaction on keyboard etc. (on hard reset too).
Now it's lays on the desk without battery (I hope It'll help, at least I hope I could get to Service Menu and use NAND Restore)

P.S. Battary was Fullcharged.
P.S.S. I have C3100.

ATTENTION!!!!

PLEASE DONT USE THE BOOTLOADER FOR C3100 - IT SEEMS TO BUGGY AND YOU MIGHT HAVE TO USE NAND BACKUP!


We need copy of bootloader. They can extract it with next steps:
1. Download this file http://pocketworkstation.org/files/recover...ract-updater.sh
rename it to updater.sh and put on CF card.
2. Run flash updating from CF card.
3. That will not update flash, but load system ROM to CF card.
4. Please send us the mainte.bin on laze ]at[ pdaxrom.org
