Hi everybody!

I have a Simpad SL4 and I installed the Ångström Distribution with opie on it.
I want to install more software like a webbrowser, but there is not much space left on the flash memory. I found on opensimpad.org that it is possible to upgrade the flash.
Is there anybody who has upgraded the simpad to 64 MB flash? Does it work?
Where can I get a compatible flash chip for my simpad to upgrade it?

Update:
Conrad could not make me an offer for the chips, but I found them at digikey [1] for 23,79 € for one chip and I ordered and got them! :-)
Next step is to remove the old flash chips. This could be very difficult for me, but I will try it!

I'll report when it's done.
