Pdaxrom Rc12 For C3000 Beta 1
« on: December 24, 2005, 08:51:29 am »
Hi,

so, finaly I have made it, a fully working pdaXrom for c3000. Btw it's not really finished yet as I still have to finish the c3000 implementation in the pdaXbuilder but I think I'll now take one week of real holidays before finishing that

The Beta can be found Here and here are some instructions :

1) Check and decompress the pdaXrom-c3000.tar.bz2 to your CF or SD card

2) Ensure that your C3000 machine has a standard HD partitioning (e.g. as it was originally), booting may fail if this is not the case

3) Turn the zaurus over and flip the battery case switch to “Unlocked”. Remove the battery cover, and find the small reset microswitch on the left. The battery cover or the stylus can be used to press it.

4) Switch back to locked without puting back the battery cover yet as you'll need to reset again

5) Insert the CF card with the image in the root, as described above.

6) Plug in the AC power jack. The yellow charge lamp must be on indicating external power, or you will get an error message in japanese later.

7) Press the “OK” key and keep it pressed while pressing the “On/Off” button on the front side.

8) The Maintenance Screen will display. Choose “Update” this is item 4.

9) The next screen will ask the source, choose “CF” or "SD".

10) The next screen asks for confirmation, choose1 “Yes” this is the left button

11) now, in the pdaXrom updater menu, choose option 3 - "NAND Flash utils"

12) choose option 1 - "Resize root partition" and enter 6 (any other value may either not permit flashing or brick your Zaurus)

13) Your Zaurus will then reboot, reset it and restart from steps (5) to (10)

14) Then choose the first option 1 - "Install new ROM"

15) When it ask you if you want to format internal user flash : answer "No"

16) Choose 6 - "Install hdimage (c3000 only)" and wait as it will take a while

17) Finally go back to 3 - "NAND Flash utils" and seect 2 - "Format user Partition"

Et voilà, now you're ready, just reboot with 7 - "Reboot" and enjoy pdaXrom on your c3000

and please give feedbacks about found bugs and method you used to fix them

to Switch back you'll have to firstly reuse this updater.sh to resize your flash to 5Mb, then either reinstall cacko rom as you would do whenever, or you'll need to follow the procedure to go back to Qtopia from the c3000 forums here

my tuto works with an rc12 root-akita image but I don't know if it will work to dual boot Qtopia while having pdaXrom as first choice ... it may worth a try but not right now  ... Maybe I'll try later btw

edit : first bug : to be able to use ipkg well, you'll have to edit destinations in /etc/ipkg.conf to suit hd mounts as it' s not the standard pdaXrom's one

Thank you so much!
Everything looks great and the instructions you provided were accurate and without guesswork.  I am running pdax on my c3000 successfully.  I am at home and without wireless so I cannot test that right now.  Other than that I have had no problems with the built in apps.  You deserve a break.

Waiting for next Z.  Will still hang out here to offer help when I can.

now downloading...I am very excited for the great thing provided by you and the pdaxrom team:)
marry christmax everyone!
(and hope that i can find as many bugs as i can, so we can have a real released rather than a beta soon)

As for hardware supported in this release : I've tested wireless with my WCF12 wifi card and I think that every card supported by pdaXrom should be working as well.
Flavien who made the first beta testings tested his usb mouse with success so everything should work like pdaXrom too.
My only concern as I don't have any BT card to test with is the bluetooth support as there are some errors at boot time and during install with bluetooth related stuff which I still didn't got rid of
