Hi, >Is there any chance to have a community maintained release? If >I remember correctly some drivers are missing to get there, >any chance to get the open sourced? >From a Nokia 770 customer point of view, any solution around this device needs to come sooner than later, since devices get old quite fast nowadays. From a Nokia Corporation perspective open sourcing components might be a slow process even if all the parties involved have a clear and common wish opening a specific source code. If we are talking about hardware drivers, the process might be *really* slow. Therefore, there are little chances that the solution for 770 customers comes from Nokia opensourcing components, really. The current hacker edition looks like the best candidate to become a more continued solution. Some people here have got a deep look at it. What do you think? On the other hand, it would be useful for everybody to highlight what are the hot zones, what theoric solutions can be applied, which ones can be discarded and who is responsible of what. Or in other words: what 770 users are *really* missing today and how this could be brought to the device. Quim
