basically, if you\'re able to fit a rom in it it\'s possible ... try to copy cacko or pdaXrom or even openzaurus and if you can have all the files (initrd.bin , updater.sh and eventually tools.rar) in the card then you\'re en route for flashing
SL-C3000 - pdaXrom 1.1.0Beta1
SL-C860 - pdaXrom 1.1.0 RC8 (charging circuitry dead :( )
CF RamStar 512 Mb / Hitachi 4Gb microdrive (thanks to creative's muvo² :p)
SD Sandisk 1Gb / Viking 256 Mb
Linksys WCF13 CF wifi card

Anyone willing to donate for my work, please consider donate to pdaXrom and/or OE/OZ projects instead, I wouldn't have been able to do anything without them ...

If it does not fit - you can try the following:

 - unpack tools.tar and remove kernel images for other devices, then tar everything back
 - flash kernel and ROM images separately - again remove all kernels from tools.tar, flash, then put kernel for 760 back and delete inird.bin, then flash

But is it realy worth  the hassle?

Thanks alot!!
Yesterday, I flashed Cacko 1.20 (29MB), because the 32MB of Cacko 1.21 didn\'t fit on the card.
The Card has 30.5MB of space. So if I remove the kernels of C700 C750 and C860 it\'ll fit

thx, jabbath

edit:
Not a week and it won\'t matter anymore. I\'ll order a SD-Card (256MB) for 36€
