hello Motorola A780

I’m lucky to be able to play with a motorola A780 smartphone for some days (actualy i have to return it tomorrow). Those nifty devices run MontaVista linux on an Intel xscale PXA271 processor.

Nice thing is that since linux 2.6.12-rc4 usbnet has a fix for the non-standard usb class specification more info. So no need for the belcarra driver and 2.4 kernel.
Make sure to add:
CONFIG_USB_ACM=m
CONFIG_USB_USBNET=m
to the kernel config.

Next i installed the convenient utils from silvio?, and got nano running: img.

And… compiled my first A780 hello world using the gumstix toolchain: img.

Hoping i’m allowed to fiddle a bit more with it so i can do something usefull.
