    Welcome Thank you for buying the SHARP SL-C1000 / SL-C3000 / SL-C3100 / SL-C3200. This device is not sold from SHARP out of Japan. It is a Japanese device with English user interface and English keyboard. If you are mainly interested in a calendar, addressbook, etc., you are perhaps better off with a simple organizer.

  • Page 12: Device Backside

    Comment regarding the Serviceport: Zaurus-enthusiasts will assume that there’s the well known SHARP I/O port hidden behind the cover. Wrong ! Behind this cover you will find the same connector as in all previous Zauris but for the SL-C1000/SL-C3000 there is NO longer serial or USB communication supported via this connector.

    It’s very simple to make a screenshot with the Zaurus. Just press “FN” + “Shift” + “C”. The picture is stored in the “Screen_Files” directory of the Zaurus or on a memory card (if one is inserted). Page 16 SHARP SL-C1000/3x00...

    Note: While changing the settings in “PC-Link Setting” the USB cable should not be connected to the Zaurus. Otherwise you will see the error message “USB-Alert”. In this case please pull the USB cable and try it again. SHARP SL-C1000/3x00 Page 19...

    # umount /mnt/usbstorage Attention: If you perform a factory-reset and restore our localisation backup, you need to create the directory “/mnt/usbhdd” manually. Please check this in case the automount doesn’t work. Page 20 SHARP SL-C1000/3x00...

    Annotations about Software Applications MoviePlayer The SHARP Movie Player is able to play .asf-files, encoded with MPEG4 Video V1 and simple MPEG-files. Also well known is the doublepack mplayer/Kino2. Please remind to donwload the mplayer version for the C1000/3x00 series models. The former C-series Zauri were equipped with an ATI graphics chip that is no longer used in the 1000/3x00 series.

    Reinsert the battery, close the cover and turn the switch back to "Betrieb". • Connect the power supply and wait until the yellow charging LED lights up (without AC connected, the Zaurus won’t start the Reset procedure !). Page 22 SHARP SL-C1000/3x00...

  • Page 24: First Start

    This option may take 1.5 hours or longer ! First start A nice, red logo from SHARP appears and the Zaurus is reset. After a minute, the well-known "CG Silicon / Zaurus" screen is visible, which means that there is another exciting minute to wait.
  • Page 25: Run Restore

    Use only the matching backup for your Zaurus. Please don’t try to restore a backup from another model in your SL-C1000 or SL-C3x00. Please remind that the backup needs to be placed in the subdir “Backup_Files” of the memory card (see note on page 22). SHARP SL-C1000/3x00 Page 25...

  • Page 27 Click the left button and the time of Kanji on the Zaurus will be over for the time being. While restoring the backup, the "CG-Silicon" screen appears for a moment, then a progress bar, which hopefully will reach 100%. Afterwards the Zaurus restarts and it is done!

  • Page 28: Alternative Roms

    SL-C1000/3x00 Quickstart Alternative Roms We ship our Zauri with a heavily modified and extended SHARP original system. In internet forums this system is often called “TRIsoft Rom”. The term “Rom” does not mean a real ROM-chip. It’s the usual description for the system that is located in the flash memory or (for the 3x00 models) on a partition of the harddisk.
  • Page 29: Rom-Image For Which Dog

    SHARP Rom. Back to the SHARP ROM SL-C1000 / SL-C3100/3200: To get back to the SHARP Rom you need to perform a NAND-restore. This is done in the Zaurus service menu. All steps are explained at page 34.
  • Page 30: Restoring The Harddisk (3X00 Models)

    Restoring the harddisk (3x00 models): Most other systems change the partition scheme of the harddisk or (for the SL-C3000) overwrite the SHARP original system data. To restore to the original state you need to re-set the partition table and place the proper files and directories in the system partition(s).
  • Page 31: Diag / Service Menu

    Here upon, the Zaurus shows the first page of the service menu in the format portrait: Navigation within the menu is possible with the stylus, the arrow keys or the scroll wheel. A function is selected by "OK" and getting back from anywhere is accomplished by pressing "Cancel". SHARP SL-C1000/3x00 Page 31...
  • Page 32: Quit Service Menu

    It is senseless to create a backup of the harddisk. This would take hours and you will need a CF card > 4GB. The contents of the harddisk can be quick and easily restored if you use the file http://www.trisoft.de/download/SLC3000SYSPART.zip from our download area. Page 32 SHARP SL-C1000/3x00...
  • Page 33 If the backup process is complete, press “Cancel” to get back to the menu screen. The created NAND backup will have the filename systc100.dbk for the SL-C1000, systc300.dbk for the SL-C3000, systc310.dbk for the SL-C3100 and systc320.dbk for the SL-C3200. SHARP SL-C1000/3x00 Page 33...
  • Page 34: Restore With Service Menu

    It is imperative to use a power source to run the restore process. Attention (2): Never ever try to restore a NAND-Backup from a different model. Only the restore of the appropriate backup set will result in a working Zaurus. Page 34 SHARP SL-C1000/3x00...
  • Page 35: Boot To Command-Line

    Tick the “Reset” button • Continue holding “D” + “B” pressed and power the Zaurus on Now you should see the white bootscreen with the red SHARP-Logo. But this time the screen should scroll up, revealing the following lines: INIT: version 2.78 booting...
