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.

My typical use would be as an e-book reader (PDFs mostly).

I used OPIE Reader for EBooks.... I even read Z4CK using that program back in the day...

Weird thing is that the arrow up/down on mine are backwards IMHO (ie:down arrow makes text go Up and vice versa)...

But that's not a big deal when you get used to it. (confusing at first though).

Anyway, the feature that I loved about OPIE Reader was the auto scroll was editable, so you could set it a adjust the pace to match your comfortable reading speed and easily pause resume by tapping button at the top of the screen. The button is even big enough to tap with you finger (so you don't need to hold the stylus... Sharp was amazingly "Before it's time"! smile.gif ).

Anyway, I recommend OPIE Reader... and hey, some of the problems many have even been fixed in latest version as I am sure mine is extremely old version.
