Well, I am still considering about cm7. Let me see.
Botbrew does has services you can turn on to configure at boot, as well as several ways it detects flashes, although most of those are centered around packages or the terminal.
But thanks for those tips, there is definitely some weirdness going on with the vibrant that I haven't seen elsewhere, but is good to know about because it could resurface in other devices.
But yeah, for instance, you could use light pad to turn your sdcard into a web server, and host websites off of it, so that's one of the services options.
There is honestly a world of stuff in the repo already, and he's about to add debian INSIDE android.
Crazy. Thanks, cashmundy. I will look into cm7.
