Being a Linux newb (wow cant remember the last time I used that word lol) can someone with a bit more experience simplify the instructions here - UNE Installation - magician so a windows user can understand them?
For example can I only do this in a linux enviroment and if so is there a live CD or something that can fulfill the task?
Justed picked one up this arvo from the o2 shop near me. On the shelf at £100, but they are already reduced to 49.99. A weekend of hacking awaits...
What would i need O2 wise to use one of these?
All other features can be used right out of the box, picked mine up yesterday I haven't hacked it yet so it's just running in it's standard configuration.
It's a good piece of kit if you can look beyond the poor touchscreen and WiFi (it randomly drops the connection even though other devices have no problems.
I'm sure it's full potential will be unlocked once its been hacked!

im seriously tempted...
Hmm, wonder if its got any good alarm functions? I'd like it on my bedside cabinet...
I picked one up on Friday. It's a great bit of kit even if you don't hack it, much better quality than I thought it would be.
I don't have anything O2, so the messaging doesn't work for me, but I do that on my phone anyway, I don't think I need to see messages in my kitchen.
The new app shop allows you to use google calendar so that is much better than the O2 calendar anyway. Personally I wouldn't bother with a PAYG or contract from O2 to go with it as it's not going to make any difference how I use it.
I've decided not to hack mine as it seems fairly tricky and probably a bit beyond my abilities. I have read you can add the open frame apps, it's the same Open Peak hardware rebranded for O2. You have to telnet in to it and you can add the apps, including facebook and flickr apps. I might have a go at doing that as it seems less likely i'll brick it! The apps are just .swf so it could even be possible to write some stuff for it. More info about this on joggler.info
Great toy for £50, I'm loving the internet radio and YouTube is quite cool on it.
For anyone planning on installing Ubuntu, I would avoid connecting it to the internet before hand, as it will update the firmware as soon as it is connected.
The Ubuntu install doesn't effect the base operating system. It just installs Ubuntu on a memory stick and boots from that. Thereby there is little risk in having a crack.
Anyone managed to work out how to set the alarm to Radio??
