Whats Up With This?
« on: October 24, 2006, 03:14:30 am »
I was just looking around on an eBay store and I see a Zaurus.  But the screenshots of applications on it just don't make sense.  What ROM is this.  And how would I get this apps working?

Here is a link to the Zaurus for sale.

Looks very much like pdaXrom to me.

As it says in the description, its pdaxrom. Looks like an older version, though.

I haven't been able to find some of these programmes for the Zaurus though.  The Index doesn't have 'em.

Thanks.  I haven't used pdaxrom before.  Still on Cacko.  I tried OpenZaurus once and it really screwed up my Zaurus.  Chresho helped me out on that one.

My advice:

Make sure you have a good NAND backup of your current setup before you start.

Spend a bit of time reading others' experiences.

Choose the right version ... beta 4 and the new release 121 seem, from what I've read so far, to be for experimenters. I'm still using beta 1 because its absolutely stable for me. Others seem to say the same about beta3 ... I haven't had the inclination to change anything on my Zaurus for quite some time, because at the moment, it just works.

As usual, your mileage may vary.

Good luck!
