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:
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

So - after a minor glitch with a strange serial port problem, I had no problem installing the HH.org bootloader. I then downloaded the X11 image and copied it onto a compact flash card. Following the instructions I renamed the jffs2 file, inserted it into the simpad, connected a terminal via serial and reset the simpad.
however, reading the final page of the HH.org bootloader instructions, and watching the output of the terminal, it seems the bootloader is looking for a differently named image, and would automatically install without the need for the terminal, if it was correctly named.
i then continued as instructed, i.e. "copy hda1:/rootfs.jffs2 root" and the install completed. i then booted into angstrom.
All in all, not too bad. Only other issue thus far is the lack of space - really cramped, so not been able to install anything

in the past i've managed to install previous versions of the bootloader, but always reverted to the siemens one because of the instability of early linux builds. wanted to try the new build, so followed instructions: erased flash memory via terminal. then closed terminal and ran serload blupdater.img. prompted to reset, but no response from serload when i do. tried all combinations of reset plus button and nothing seems to register. now just get the tartan screen obviously.
simpad connected to windows xp machine, bootloader is siemens 2.5.3, old OS was CE 4.1
