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

I too am trying to get the SD/MMC mode to work. I did a "blue" wire mod. See attached


I would like to test. Did you ever get it to work in the latest Angstrom release -r18 (or any for that matter). I am having no luck.

Hi,

the current mmc-mod-driver for kernel 2.6.24 in Angstrom -r18 is not working for now.
I have made new patches, witch works since 8 months on my own simpad.
This driver is in very beta-stage and no good example for clean programming, but it works.

Regards,
mrdata

Thanks for the update. How would I go about trying your patch?
