Archos just released the PMA430 firmware source as GPL

Post by Charbax »

Archos has just release the PMA430 firmware source code to the developpers at http://openpma.org/ and they are soon going to release a revolutionnary new firmware for the PMA430, that will feature direct support with all Zaurus software, bluetooth, samba and more!

So it might be worth modding the Wi-Fi antenna to get better range on your PMA430, cause there probably soon are going to be new uses for it even though that the much more powerfull closed source 604 Wi-Fi has just been released.

I'm afraid this is not true, at least nobody has told us so... ;)

This is true, though, but this firmware is not based on Archos sources but on our own work...

And it will be released tomorrow, Friday 24th.

Have you guys had a crack at the 604 WifI???

If you could open that, that would be great... even if only to allow kernel hacks that would allow for the loading of a variety of OSS on the device...
