Default Entourage pocket edge development

I was wondering if I could get some help developing some things for the pocket edge... Possibly a custom rom, gapps and what not. Any help would be appreciated.

I just ordered 1 of these for $155 shipped. Of course my 1st stop was xda, & am shocked that there is no activity for this [potentially] great device!

Here's hoping that some of the devs will pick up 1 at these new lower prices & start working their magic

A woot sale is not "new lower prices". That said, I'm in for one, and also looking for the hacking I hope is already going on this!

Checking in too, I got mine yesterday and am very excited about the device.
What I was able to establish quickly is that most 2.2 apps will work out of the box on the Pocket Edge (I made apk backups of my apps on my N1, copied them onto the SD card of the Pocket Edge and voila, I had most of my favorite apps

I would be specifically interested in knowing how to access the e-ink screen programatically. Seems that the current apps focus mostly on the LCD screen.

Did you try sideloading the market? What about amazon market? You didn't order yours off woot and have it arrive so fast, did you?
Sorry, I'm just really curious to see how this thing works out.

I just got my PE through a dutch version of woot, I upgraded it to 2.2.1 right away, but there's still plenty to tweak. I have no experience whatsoever with those things, but I'm very willing to learn and help you out, just tell me what to do.

I am not quite sure what to do. I believe it's an adb pull. I meant to do a little more research but have been really busy with work.

Anyone have more knowledge about this?

They have an open development forum on the entourage website that may have useful information for someone wanting to hack this device (I got one on woot too.)

I can't link outside the site since this is my first post, but it's the Open Edge Community Forum at the very bottom of the forum page.
