unfortunately I the screen of my old GTA02 has stopped working (all white
apart from a bit of pixel garbish at the bottom, also directly after
booting). Now I know that you can get a replacement for about 80EUR. Even
though this is still an option it is a bit expensive regarding the fact that
the phone is now 6years old. The phone itself still works as I can ssh into
QtMoko. So I have two questions
a) did anyone ever manage to connect the phone to some other type of newer
screen (eg to build an incar navigation system?)
b) if I ever wanted install something new, how would I proceed only with
ssh as a visual feedback (if at all): Qtmoko and SHR need the user to
calibrate the screen inbetween, so I don't know where they will get stuck
Maybe you can share your ideas on what to do with such a device.
Many thanks and happy easter
You could use the freerunner as a SMS gateway, you don't need a screen
That is something i use, i can send a text message and perform some action
(switching lights on or off )
Or have a text message send to my other phone if a long running job is done.
Any idea if the touch screen still works? you might be able to use it
as a mp3 player, or alarm clock if it does.
Or use it as a gps tracking device.
If you like none of the ideas, you could also donate it to the
community, perhaps someone can use it as a base for a gta04.
