Even Easier

I have begun a project on my own to get an easy to add perl binary (its an application that runs scripts) and a script program to do all this work. All you would have to do is download two files, move one to the proper place, and run the other... I might even be able to make a bash script (thats which shell we run) to do it all so all you have to do is download one file and run it.. I will keep you posted.

Small delay

As a server Admin the DST (Daylight Savings Time)change has taken a great deal of my time. I was pleasantly surprised to see my n800 handle it with no problem. I am also working on switching the dual boot from ext2 to ext3 and the installation of an alternate WindowManager (go to and search the forums for ROX).

New stuff coming.

Coming Soon

I am putting together all the information needed to boot off your mmc/sd with the n800. Working on making it easy to follow for first-timers, and explaing what all the steps mean/do.

Why should I do this.

I noticed that there is so much that can be done with the n800, but so few easy to read and understand instructions.

This site will be filled will explanations and examples of how to modify the n800 (sorry n770 users, I just have the n800)

Ok, what makes me qualified

1. I have a n800
2. I am Linux certified LPI
3. I have been a unix admin for 3 years now and have 5 years of windows admin experience.

Any instructions I give, I will attempt to make them all tablet only. In other words, I will set these instructions whenever possible so you don't need a computer.

So it Begins

I just ordered my n800 from TigerDirect.

I paid $369 for the tablet, 51 dollars for a One year extended replacement plan past the 12 months you get from Nokia, and 24 dollars for a 2 gig sd card to get me started.

Once I have the device in hand, I am going to play with it a bit as stock, then begin to modify it.

I will be posting information on what I do, how, where and why, and hopefully it will wind up being useful to someone.
