I'm Going Mad! Sl-5500 Flashing Issues!
« on: August 16, 2006, 12:17:15 pm »
For the past few months I've been exclusively using my C3100.

Today I tried to flash my 5500 to the latest OZ hentges rom, to no avail.

The currently installed rom (OZ 3.5.4) boots fine, however, flashing does not work.

I am using the same CF card I've always used, it works on my other Z, it's FAT16 formatted, the initrd.bin & zImage files are correctly named, etc.

When I press C + D and then reset, nothing happens. No lights, nothing.

I've also noticed that my battery is as good as dead - the Z will only power up with the power cable plugged in.

Is this a problem when flashing?

I just realized my collie cannot even detect the CF card... It's not a problem with the slot however, since it detects my WiFi card just fine!

What's going on!?
