Multimedia, AV We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered (by snooping on its firmware files) that the Pontis MX2020 multimedia device that Geeks.com sent us for a review actually uses Linux (embedded distribution uCLinux, kernel 2.4.19). If it's video, audio, pictures, recording or even basic PDA functionality via its touch screen, the Pontis MX2020 can do it all. And for very cheap too.

The full hardware specs are not available. You can't port anything to it in the current form. The only solution is for iUbi to post the source code so people can start updating it.

Got Skills? It's only a computer, hardware is hardware, as long as it's not proprietary and even then it can be deduced, really helps if they haven't ground off the part numbers but even then there are plenty of catalogs with pictures. After all we're talking rocket science not brain surgery, all you need is tools, time and two units...
