Cacko Kernel For Sl-5500/5000d

Hi!

Yes, I found the apps there, and I just (last night) started to check
out the cacko ROM.  So far, I really, really like it.  Unfortunately I've
been running into problems with the version of Opera in that is in
that .zip file.  I don't remember the exact errors, but it would not
install, and complained about the tar format...

I was able to install jeode, and the jeode demos, but have not tried
to use them yet.

If anyone else knows what's going on with the Opera in that .zip, or
has a pointer to another one, that would be cool.

Many thanks,

John

There is Opera 7.30 on page 3 where you got your cacko apps.

Also, if you have a Yahoo account, you can find Opera 7.55 in the SL5500 group at Yahoo Groups http://groups.yahoo.com/

Also, make sure the files you are installing are in the ROOT of your card, not in a directory.
Otherwise, you will usually get an error message.

This thread is getting off its intended topic.
Let's try to keep it on-topic (meaning me too)

Well..... I have good news and not so good news.

The good news is: I saved a bunch of money.... And got another 5500.

The not so good news is: after flashing the ROM and then the kernel I DON'T have the blinking battery light.

I have tried killing the battery and putting it in the charger, charging from various battery levels reseating the z in the charger about 50 times. And last but not least my 4.5v car adapter as it used to kick off the blinking light.

Here is the process I went through:

Step 1. Flash this: http://www.zaurususergroup.org/UpDownload+...it-lid-53.phtml

Step 2. Boot the Z and setup a fresh SD card

Step 3. Flash This: http://www.zaurususergroup.org/UpDownload+...t-lid-223.phtml

Step 4. Install the battery applet

If anybody would like to test this and see if they still get the blinking light I would appreciate it.

@technojunkie:

Sorry, that doesn't help me. I am using standard sharp rom 3.13.
The 32-30 kernel always gives me the flashing battery light.

Thanks anyway.

Doug

EDIT
I also do not use the cradle to charge my z.
I always use the power supply directly connected.

Well Phooey...

Ummm... question, When you flash the 32-30 kernel do you do kernel only or FileSystem+kernel?

I flash the kernel only.
I tried to flash Ospack+kernel together, and the kernel does not get flashed that way.

OK so you're using Sharp's filesystem with the cacko kernel.  Well that narrows things down a bit (I think) I have been away from this for a while working on homework (both work and school) I hope to get back into it again soon.

I am using Sharp ROM 3.13 with Cacko Kernel 32-30.

Battery flashing (blinking)... I found software (ZLed - aka Zaurus Led Signilizer) and disabled Battery blinking in it... It helps!!!

Memory (Installd memory applet gives 8Mb Swap from RAM, wich more faster than my SD)

Questions:
Should I install mmcsd.0 driver insted of Sharp_mmcsd.0? How can i do it? Only replace and rename?
Should I enable assync mode for SD? (how?)

Can anyone fixed bug with memory in Cacko Advanced ROM/Crow Rom, when Installing Cacko Kernel 64-0, system memory 48Mb insted of 64?

I tried your suggestion.
True, the light doesn't blink, but the actions are the same.
In other words, when you plug it in and the light doesn't come on, it's only because the program is controlling the light.
The problem is not actually fixed.

It was worth a try though

I can't help you with your other questions.

Hi Doug,

Do you know if there is any option to install the kernel and disable or uninstall only the battery applet? This could be a provisory solution.

AFAIK, whether or not a battery applet is installed or disabled has nothing to do with the blinking light problem.

The problem is with the kernel.

This is a known problem with this kernel version. Try to reinsert the connector a few times, or try plugging it with zaurus suspended, etc. I know it may be annoying, but I wasn't able to figure out the problem...
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=48336\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
So, I think your answer would be no.

I'm pretty sure it's the kernel as well partly due to th eabove commants but mostly due to the fact that the 64/0 image wipes the contents of /var on reboot incidently causing the new battery applet to 'uninstall' leaving you with the original applet ans a blinking light.

Dougee I'm still poking away at this so hopefully I can find a workaround or solution.

Are you one of the folks whose z won't even charge because of the blinking light or are you in the 'inconvenience' club?
