I would love a better ROM than the Sharp ROM, and the Guyhelm-Cacko sounds like it might be good.  I hope its finished soon.  :-)

I've actually been relatively content with the Sharp ROM -- relatively, I mean, compared to what else is on offer. Anything that involves extensive terminal tweaking after flash is enough to put me off changing: maybe because I'm lazy, maybe because I'm stupid, or maybe because "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" seems like pretty a good philosophy for something I use every day for writing, e-mailing, PIM and listening to music. I really can't afford to have it in some half-finished beta state.

For all intents and purposes, the Qtopia/Sharp ROM is polished and stable, if not exactly feature-rich. I personally would rather see enhancements to it instead of a slew of whole new projects, but that might only be because I have no coding skills whatsoever and an aversion to heavy-duty tinkering (which I'd say goes beyond the definition of tinkering).

One thing I can't understand is, why can't we find a 6000W ROM and extract the Bluetooth software modules from there? (I think guylhem's got one already.) That way, the 6000 would have native BT support and we could be ahead of other models in at least one software category.

Is there any other Rom for the sl-6000 that will allow me to use WIFI connections without a command line script ? I can't wait until DrWowe's CG6000 rom is out to breath new life into my 6k...

A ROM, no, but you can use either gpe or opie with openzaurus to use wifi with gui tools.

Does OZ still display yellow/orange "interference" lines on the 6k? That was kind of a problem last time I checked.  I don't mean to belabor it, though.  It would be a nice 6k system if that had been fixed.

I'm satisfied with the Sharp ROM too.  It would have been nice to try guylhem's rom, but I think it's more on the dead than alive side.  He does good work, but I have the feeling to get it to the point of being released will take a while more, perhaps 6 months to a year down the line.  His last work was in October, which would make it about 6 months since any work was done on it.

Does OZ support wake on alarms yet?    I mean does it have a working calendar system in either gpe or opie?  Thats one of the big reasons i have not given it a long test.

I am starting to play with running pdaxrom with enlightenment17.

[img]http://www.thegrantclan.org/images/zaurus/pdaxrom_e17_kopi.jpg\" border=\"0\" class=\"linked-image\" /]

I currently have USB networking so that I can uses x11vnc to control the 6k while it is in the cradle.  

KOPI has imported my ics file so I have access to my currect calender.  The lack of Pi-sync bothers me a little both as of e17 ont he z I so far find it very nice and responsive.  

The screen rotate button int he ibar works great.  I was not able to get matchbox to rotate the 6k(at least I coudl nto find how).

The escreenshow module does not work.

Teh battery meter shows 100, 75, 50 , 25 but also show how many minutes it believe I still have left.  I am not sure how accurate it issince I have nto been timing it.

Suspend works from teh power button.  Every time so far this weekend it has returned without a problem but I currently have everythign installed locally and not on a cf or sd card.

I am currently still trying to get Wifi working.

I hope to get wifi working in the next couple of days.

Just though I would put inthat info about using pdaxrom on the 6k...

Nevarrie,
It would be really nice if you could share your experience in using pdaxrom on the 6k, esp the wifi part, thank you, and i understand that we can actually dual boot the pdaxrom from sd so to keep the stock in internal flash?

can someone point out the + and - of doing so?

p/s: it's really been quiet around here (6k) and i really envy all the attention others (3k, 1k) have..
