When running the flash_open2x.gpu I only get a black screen and nothing happens. I have read the previously posted tutorials and did everything the way it was described, my SD card works for GPH upgrades too ...

... what is it I'm doing wrong? :(

It actually is the 1.4 firmware that I'm using. It just doesn't want to work. It's really strange, I've never had any problems with the gp2x before, software-wise that is. I'll give it another try after work.

EDIT: I got it to work now!! The problem was that my WinACE did not extract the
"gp2x_write" and the "gp2xole" in the archive properly onto my SD card, it worked fine with WinRAR.

Guess I was just too blind to see the obvious or else I'd have noticed the 2 missing files on the SD earlier ;)

Anyway, tis workin' now, yaay!

Not sure why you'd want to, but anyway.

I've got idea for 'packages', like say gcc or qtopia, which would be distributed as squashfs images, and be automatically mounted on /opt. These could either be on the SD card or copied to the writeable nand. So you would have say, /opt/gcc/ with bin, lib etc under there, same for /opt/qtopia. Comments ?
Excellent idea. Then upgrading the compiler toolchain becomes a single download issue.
I have been a little frustrated and confused by the complexity of installations in current sets.
