Is it posible to put a very small linux based os on an ipod touch?
No, unfortunatly the current line up of ipods cannot run ipodlinux or rockbox, which unfortunatly means I must stick with my previous gen ipod.
I use rockbox personally and would love one of the new larger capacity classics but until I can run rockbox I will have to stay where I am because I am too lazy to re-encode my flacs into apple lossless.
I too was a rockbox fan... It was amazing watching movies, or playing gameboy games on a 1.5" screen.
Returning to the question at hand, i suppose VNC is sort of an answer. It wirelessly connects you to your computer, and lets you view a live screenfeed, whilst letting you control mouse and keyboard. Its almost like running Windows, or Mac on your iPod... just a little choppier.
they will have to develop the display drivers, touch screen drivers(i imagine would be the hardest), and the hardware drivers(audio in and out, etc)
it /can/ be done. . .just not yet
personaly, i cant wait for this to happen, i want to see what the open source group can bring to the feild
unfortunately its still in the development stage
Aren't they the people who helped develop Pwnage, and WinPwn?
yep that be the same people
What is rock box? I dont think i have heard of that before?
Rockbox is a firmware for the old iPods (up to the Classic, and 2nd Gen Nano), and other various MP3 players... it supported a HUGE selection of games and plugins, including an Mpeg player, and a Gameboy emulator, for example.
It looked like crap, but it did what the normal iPod could do, and a lot more.
Can you put it on the ipod touch?
nope you cant y would you with jailbreaking available and 3rd party apps the touch can do way more things than rockbox
