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 ;-)

The driver is build into the kernel, but it seems that this version of the driver is not working. We need to wait for mister data or some one else to submit the driver or write a new driver for it.

best regards

btw: I usualy do not answer quicker on private messages then on public ones wink.gif
The time needed to answer questions is the same and I prefere to answer on public questions because more people profit from that.
