Well, in the Cacko ROM for the C3000 there is a "Shotdown" icon in the settings tab, which lets you terminate QTopia. After terminating QTopia, you have to press the "/" key in order to get a menu. here you can shoose the pure console. If you do not press "/", QTopia will restart when the displayed timer expires.

Try this

CODE
echo "a" > /home/sharp/etc/launch.default
killall qpe


That will drop you in a linux terminal. You probably want to "killall qpeserver" too after opening te server.

To get back to qtopia, reboot or echo "q" to /home/sharp/etc/launch.default and log out of the console - it should restart qtopia

The qcop command (http://doc.trolltech.com/qtopia2.0/html/qcop.html) might be of some help here too. Can be used to perform all sorts of tricks.

did that on a 6000. You have to change the qt start script if you want to support terminate (survive means it will start again qtopia) + add a menu option for qcop QPE/System shutdown() IIRC

That's what the
QUOTE
echo "a" > /home/sharp/etc/launch.default
in my previous post was for. It tells launcher that you want console rather than qtopia.
