Pdaxrom Beta4 For C3000

Sure it DOES sound cryptic, and I wouldn't risk it by all means   without clear instructions and a lot of positive feedback from other C3000 users.

Pdaxrom Beta4 For C3000

Meanie

So what exactly does this new bootloader mean for c3000 users? Are you just suggesting that this might get used in the next spitz pdaxrom beta?

I have been thinking about giving pdaXrom beta2 another go. I've currently got my drive partitioned like this:

hda1=900MB ext2

hda2=100MB ext2

hda3=3GB vfat

iirc pdaXromb2/spitz recommends you have standard formatting before running its installer but I think the first thing you need to do is let the installer re-partition your drive. Can you install b2 onto a custom partition setup such as my current one? Would hda1=/, hda2=/home?

I would like to see a 2.4 based pdaXrom b3 for c3k which incorporates all Meanies fixes, the new SD driver etc.

One more question, especially to sashz and ThC. Where the U-BOOT is stored? I know it replaces standard Sharp bootloader, and for now I suppose it's stored in some part of NAND. It would be very good NOT to have it on C3000's 16 Mb chip, because this chip itself can become damaged (you know these NAND things  ).


I'm going to try to replace this chip with 128 Mb one, and all I need to know now is:

Do I have any chance to do it after installation of U-BOOT and by its means? With original Sharp bootloader, as reported several testers before - no luck, it doesn't recognize empty (actually FAT16/32 formatted) NAND chip, though it DOES support this chip itself, and refuses to do anything with it, including NAND restoration.

If the answer is "yes", I'll get my hands around my hot air blower   in minutes. If no...well, it must be other way, maybe with serial cable or alike, to perform such a replacement. Sharp technicians DO know such a way, as they replace broken NAND chips on Z's.

P.S. IC programmers DON'T work with NAND.
