I'm trying to figure out what to do with my 5500, and I'm sure your advice could help not only me but other people looking for a similar solution.

I frequently use otrplayer to listen to news downloads, and I'd like to upgrade my storage capacity to at least 2GB with a SD card. Based on the searching around I've done, I understand that my options are:

1. Use a Sharp 3.13 ROM, modified for 2GB SD support.
PROS: 2GB SD, audio
CONS: distro is no longer active

2. OZ 3.5.4
PROS: 2GB SD (?), audio
CONS: distro is no longer active

3. Angstrom
PROS: 2GB SD, distro is under active development
CONS: no audio


Am I right about this? Any other options? Should I just go for 1 or 2 until Angstrom has audio for collie? Thanks for any tips.

Just go for either the first two. Sharp rom wise be aware you have tkcRom and Cacko Crow using it which also work well with that modified SD card driver. Angstrom is on it's first release so not particularly stable for collie users yet - just give the developers some time and i'm sure they will have the hardware working soon and we can finally move away from Methuselah's Kernel.

Thanks to help from people here i'm running tkcRom fine with a 2gb SD card. I tend to play large (up to 8 hours) mixes and tkcPlayer copes with that better. It still confuses the hell out of the seek bar though...
