Cuong Nguyen, 22 Dec 2009Try to flash another firmware! (an 0DR is recommended!)Is it not hardware problem ?..
i adore Linux platforms in mobile phones, and as soon as i've seen it in markets i instantly bought it.
the Camera as 5 MP is outstanding - the speed of taking photos is also remarkable, the headsets is loud and nice, the alarm ring tones - can ring the whole song (not just 1 minute of it), the screen & color is amazing, the design is something else neat design of the buttons but not separated that you might press two/three keys per once, & it is slow, hard to find a decent software for it, the media player is bit weird, group SMSing is 1 by 1 which ends up with lots of (timeout of sending) and stay in your outbox. & i was hoping that the CD suit might be installed on linux OS but i was wrong.
i can mod it but i'm afraid to brick it.
in the end - i need to obtain another device that provide my needs - but i'm keeping this unique piece.
Hey people. What about EAP/TTLS and PAP support? I really need it to connect this phone on my collage via WiFi.
every time I try to take a picture with the motozine it says "camera is busy" and shuts the camera function down. anybody know how to fix this?

I think nokia's wifi phone have the ability to catches signal(hotspot)far better than Moto ZN5's. cant rely the ZN5's wifi.
Exceptional mobile phone. Actually I consider it to be the Motorola’s MASTERPIECE.
Motorola is known to manufacture mobile phones with rock solid built quality using top notch & expensive materials like steel, aluminum, mineral glass rather than glossy plastic commonly used by Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, LG. The ZN5 is no exception either; it is almost built in metal & has a thick mineral glass over the TFT display matrix which is excellent. The set looks a feels like a monolith.
Actually a very famous website www.smape.com did a durability test on ZN5 and in one of their tests they rode over the ZN5 lying in the road on a Honda CRV weighing 2.5 tones. The ZN5 passed with flying colors. Only the mineral glass cover over the display was broken but the mobile phone operated normally receiving calls, playing music etc.
The display in ZN5 is way ahead of the European contenders like Nokia & Sony Ericsson. Actually mobile phones which are manufactured in Japan by Japanese companies have exceptional displays & generally are way better than the European counterparts. Just think about top LCD screen manufactures of the world – Sharp, Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, JVC,etc all reside in Japan. Whereas European mobile phone manufactures use TFT displays manufactured by local European companies, Motorola uses TFT display manufactured by Sharp Corporation of Japan.
The phone is all about the camera and it does not disappoint on that ground. Believe me, it is currently the BEST 5 MP camera available today, make no mistake about it. Only the Nokia N82 comes close. Motorola ZN5 is also the industry first to introduce VARIABLE APERTURE technology in the camera unit of ZN5.
The hardware found in ZN5 almost represents the hardware of a stealth fighter plane i.e. built to kill its opposition. Running on a Freescale MXC275-30 platform having 532 MHz ARM11 processor speaks for itself. Also it has two Image Processing Units (IPU) instead of one and thus can handle image & video much better than its opposition. Internal memory is 512 MB which is huge, also you can extend it up to 4GB with a microSD card.
Audio sound quality from the music player is awesome. Believe me some of the renowned Russian websites like www.smape.com, www.mobile-review.com, etc known for their thorough review have told that the ZN5 can challenge the mighty Apple iPod on this ground which, literally speaking is phenomenal for any mobile phone. After using Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung I have to accept that ZN5 is the best when it comes to sound quality.
This mobile phone is capable of playing videos of very high bitrates (Higher bitrates means better quality) due to its 2 IPU’s & 208 Mhz DSP. Bitrates as high as 1100 kbps can be played easily.
