Watapon Test
« on: June 16, 2009, 05:29:17 pm »
Hi,

So i flashed Watapon on my zaurus sl-5600 with pxa250 cpu.

however, it's not faster than the standard SHARP Rom :

Bogomips are the same (397..)

ZJB reports, for Watapon and right, SHARP

int artimethic : 7,63          vs  7,68
doubl A           1,23          vs  1,2
infinite A         2,71          vs  3,6
Strings           3,47          vs  4,3
Draw              6,65          vs  8,4  
file IO             2,09          vs  9,0

because of the blue crystal them i switched back to the original sharp ROM

I tried to play a video in mplayer but it seem not going better as with Sharp's rom.

Never mind, the machine does all i need

Give tkc v1.0 with opie player2 a try


Its been  a while since I fired my 5500 up but with a small swap fiel setup, tkc should trounce the SHARP ROM if only because you will be able to play mpeg videos in landscape at 25fps

I guess tck is not freeware. ANd Opie player seems a little bit buggy, and tricky to install ?

The TKC Rom v1.0 was free, not sure where its hosted not (might be on the OESF repository)  They created it as a SHARP based ROM without PIMS etc so leaving more room for their apps.

I agree opie2 player is a little tricky to install but with even a small swap file is stable and used to work fine for me.

Ok, also Angstrom is a possibility... since the 2.6 kernel seems faster ?

Anyway, couldn't one give up the flashing hassl and only swap the internal flash content ?

1) Maintenance menu / format.

2) / Update....
