Ok, I've got it working, and for those who have a ZipIt Z2, I'd love for you to test it.




My ZipIt is stock. This sounds like just the thing I have been looking for.

Will test and report back ASAP.


EDIT: Installing now.

Hmmm. The script does not seem to be loading.

Procedure I followed:

Downloaded your archive.

Extracted to folder on Win 7 machine.

Formatted 8GB microSD card to Fat16 (with the max 2GB partition)

copied contents of first-sd to root of SD card.

Put microSD card in mini adapter.

Inserted in ZipIt.


(It booted normally)

After 5-10 minutes, I hit the reset button with a paperclip.

Booted again.

Still boots normally without loading script.

When it boots it says there is an SD card, and the database loaded. But it doesn't do anything more than that.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: Repeated the above steps with a 128MB miniSD card, and it worked after the reset. I am currently sitting at a OpenZipIt screen. I'll setup side-track on the 8GB card and see how it goes. Thanks.

EDIT2: Up and running. Awesome man. Will continue testing.

i totally bricked my zipit... has anyone had any success using a 3.3v cellphone data cable to get into the terminal like the nslug? Or am I better off getting the rs-232 level shifter?
