So far it looks sweet. I got the lead from Axim on the following thread

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...08&#entry154408

I flashed it with out any hiccups. How many other people? have this loaded? I couldn't find any other threads about this for 5500/5600 Z's.

I just flashed my 5500 with it. My take on it ... it works ... but the built-in apps is kinda like a throw back to the dark ages ...

The Notes, Pictures and possibly other apps all do one *stupid* thing: They scan the internal and I think external media for the supported documents and present a "protected" view of available files. I think it may seem like a way to be user friendly, but when you think of how many files one can squeeze into a 1gb sd card (or 4gb sdcard ... I've not tested this yet), then you know it's going to take a long time!

Besides, users who choose a linux device, should at least know about directory structure to be comfortable in navigating through a browse dialog right? I mean, even Windows have that!

I might install some of the apps from the oz/sharp feed and see if they work. Post back later.

I do agree with you on that. However I'm giving it the wife test.... If it's friendly enough for her to use it than it would be a victory for me. I'm tired of her asking me to check my "palm thingy" for phone numbers and addresses. I'm still testing it myself. I'll try to post some screenshots.
