So i'd like to try adding space via the SD/MMC mod. having read the various wiki entries and forum posts, if i understand correctly, I need:
  1. SD card
  2. cheap SD -> USB adapter (optional?)
  3. ribbon cable 0.5mm pitch 20 pin ?
  4. adapter - this? or this?
  5. wire and assorted soldering bits and bobs
I'm happy dismantling the Simpad, and am competent at soldering small components. Is this all I need, or am I missing something?

Secondly, does anyone know a UK firm that has the ribbon cable components? alternatively, would someone be wiling to order the parts on my behalf, and then post them to the uk? the lc-design site did not seem to offer international sales.

Thirdly, what is the most recent recommended bluetooth module? I am less interested initially in this mod, but would probably try it if there was a cheap module.

Thanks in advance for any help

Im new to the forum cause I was curious with working on/with the Simpad and came through opensimpad.org in here.

I tried images with 2.4 kernel and 2.6 kernel. Now Im using 2.4 cause there is a module for mmc available.
BUT I would love to use the newer 2.6 images in my "bluetoothed and sd" Simpad.

Is there a compiled module respectively driver available for sd/mmc. That would be great.

Thx in advance for your help,


Btw, Im also missing some useful software for 2.6 kernel images like minicom and synergy client/server ;-)
