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 also Wooted and am waiting on my new toy to arrive.

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.

I got mine (from Woot!) yesterday. I applied the update. I have signed up for the betas, but not installed the beta OS yet.

I plugged in a USB keyboard and it worked well. I did the same with a mouse, though the X and Y axes seem swapped; maybe it only works with a particular screen orientation. I have a Bluetooth keyboard that I will try next.

The included apps aren't great, but they could be worse. I copied some .apk files from my rooted HTC Aria just to see what would install.

Apps that installed and worked:

1) Titanium Backup (the free one). Doesn't do much since I don't have root.
2) Google Maps - everything but the location-based services seems to work.
3) RealCalc - looks freaky on the huge screen
4) Google Listen - though it's broken because it needs a GMail link
5) SystemPanelLite

Apps that would not install:

1) GMail
2) Winamp (I don't like the eDGe's music player)



Looking forward to getting Market and Gmail working one day!
