For a funny reason (and in fact it's a miscommunication with a seller whose English is next to incomprehensible ...) it so happened that I bidded two (oops!) used MDA pro separately on ebay.
So I will keep one for myself and (re)sell the extra one right away.
I offer it for 170 euros (final price) -- a very competitive offer.
It is practically still second hand, because I won't be using it at all but resell it again.

The original accessories (battery, holder, wall charger, software cd, memory, stock case) are all in place, plus an extra 4GB SD card.
The device is fully functional. NOT sim locked.
Some tiny minor marks of use, which are expected.

I am planning to install Debian on this by now low-priced device. (See https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=25666) If interested I can also set it up for you.

Brief specs:
Processor: Intel Bulverde 520 MHz
Connectivity: Tri-Band GSM (900/1800/1900), GPRS (Class 10), WCDMA/UMTS/3G, WiFi 802.11b (WEP & WPA compatible), Bluetooth 1.2, USB, Infrared
Display: 3.7" 64k-color 640x480(VGA) Transflective TFT touchscreen, with swivel to convert into landscape and portrait modes (almost the same as the Zaurus C-series)
Memory: 128 MB internal flash storage, 64MB RAM, SD (with SDIO)
Input: Stylus, Keyboard (62-key QWERTY)
Cameras: 1.3MP CMOS Camera with a strong LED flash light + QVGA (320x240) CMOS
Battery: 1620mAh Lithium Ion Polymer (now a lot of inexpensive extended batteries are available, up tp 4800mAh and even 5200mAh)
Dimensions & Weight: very similar to the Zaurus C-series
Operating System: WM6 (now it can run Angstrom, Poky and Debian EABI!), see http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/How...d7836d0329f8ef6 and http://wiki.neilandtheresa.co.uk/Titchy_Mobile

More details can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTC_Universal and http://www.pdagold.com/articles/detail.asp?a=257

PM me if interested. The price is final. Will ship worldwide. Shipment options are up to the buyer.

I will wait here for a week before ebaying it.

Thank you! wink.gif

Now the story goes...
"Two experts said they had developed a molecule-sized switch which...
could see 500,000 gigabytes squeezed into a microchip no bigger than a two pence piece...."

Everything will just get crazy then ... laugh.gif

It's amazing that I didn't realize this until now: the forum doesn't allow me to upload .bz2 tarballs! blink.gif
It would be great if this is enabled. It's a most common linux file format and is a better spacesaver than .tgz.
Thanks in advance.

Those who are using my rootfs tarball, which contains lots of goodies made by 2or0, may encounter errors while doing apt-get dist-upgrade because of some differences in the dependencies in 2or0's repackaged Angstrom .debs and the packages from the Debian repos, which causes conflicts and subsequently failure in the upgrading process.

I've repackaged the .debs from the Debian feeds, basically just changing the versions in the Depends line and the package versions.
Using these will prevent such error from showing up. Have tested in on two rootfs and the trick works. wink.gif

Super easy. Just install these two packages BEFORE apt-get dist-upgrade:

I've been looking for a way to use the matchbox panel applets on fbpanel and rox-panel, but no luck. So far I can only found one hit in Google which is a thread here: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=24922

But still it remains obscure to me as to how to add these applets to the panels and get them to work. sad.gif

The documentation of fbpanel is too filmsy up to now...

Has anyone succeeded in doing this? A howto will be super nice. Thanks in advance.
