Is it possible - or what needs to be done to make it possible - to install Qtopia 4 libs (or statically linking them) on a stock Qtopia 2 Zaurus, and run Qtopia 4 apps?

a stock zaurus runs qtopia 1.5

there are some ROMs on qtopia.net running qtopia2,
http://www.qtopia.net/modules/mydownloads/viewcat.php?cid=6
none of these run kernel 2.6 as far as I know so you'd get no performance boost, and as far as I know you'd lose backwards compatibility to run all the Sharp proprietary apps.

this has been discussed here... the thing is, if you want the cutting edge, try OZ or Angstrom and Opie2 (fork of qtopia4), if you want traditional apps and max compatibility try Cacko, and if you want maximum apps then pdaXrom. That's a bit oversimplifying I think.
