I haven't used my Z for over 2 years and I'd like to put it to use again. Are there any distributions out there that will breathe some life into my Z and make it useful again?

At one time, OpenZaurus and Ångström were up and coming and very promising. Is there anything happening with these distros?

Is there any possibility of Android on the Z? I thought I heard someone was working on it but don't know what progress has been made.

I am interested in anything that will make it useful and let me tinker again. I bought an iPhone about 2 years ago and as you know, there isn't much you can tweak. Even if you jailbreak, you are still limited.

Glad the site is still around.

I guess the real question is, what would *you* like to use it for?

I always found my C860 to be great for music and movies (and I think movies for the C1000) would be easier to make, there's a very good post about using handbrake to encode easily for it.

I think Android would be tough, even if there is a distro for that since I would imagine it would be too slow (but that is just a guess). Not sure what the state of Ångström is, but OZ development appears to have stopped a while ago:

Obviously, things that require a keyboard would be a great fit for the Zaurus as well, or something where you want to use USB devices (since the C1000 and all after that, have USB host)

And of course, there is always....Games: http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...amp;hl=nintendo
