it's time to say thank you to you all, especially to rasputin: you made my phone work great (most of the time) and look nice.
and the most important: made it work as ftp server.
my intention to buy a linux-based mobile phone was the same as using linux for everyday-work - and of course i expected the mobile to support usb mass storage out of the box scsi-emulated, bad surprise...
and then you saved me. thanx rasputin.
i flashed two mobiles (one has linuxmod 5, one has 3, it's quite some time ago) both are running mostly stable.
and for others, who sometimes forget things like me (and for me if i search in 3 month):
if you don't get the modem configured on your computer, then you forgot to load zaurus module. if you have zaurus module loaded, you will get kernel messages showing you that modem usb* (for me usb0) was found. then you can ifconfig it.
As long as you do NOT flash a locked firmware onto your unlocked phone it will stay unlocked. All modded firmwares are unlocked, only the stock (OEM) firmwares can have a lock.
If you use Vista with SP2 you should be fine.
Ok, so I have to get the unlock code to install these mods?
thanx alot i was getting really bored with my v8... i was scared i would brick my phone. i dont know much about modding. i used the skinman for my z3 back in the day. i took a leap of faith and flashed the linuxmod3a into my v8 2gb and all good.... if u pay close attention and follow the guide. its really simple. thanx again....
quick question. i already had A3 CF bootloader on my V8 2gb.. but 2 be on the safe side i flashed the A3 CF bootloader in the link u provided. i read on another post on this site that u need a noRsa A3 CF bootloader to run linuxmod firmware. this person had problems with their phone.
¨¨NoRsa boot allows you to use unsigned firmwares (non original firmwares) such as Linuxmod.
When you turn it on in bootloader mode, the screen shows "NoRsa boot A3.CF"
should i listen to this and download a A3 CF norsa bootloader ??
