HTC-Apache Debian Style
I am new to this forum and new to smart phones as well. I purchased a used HTC-Apache from Ebay to try to see if I could put Linux on it to use it as a (yes I know slow but) ultra ultra ultra portable PC.
So far through my searching I have managed to get it to boot into Debian (Bash only) once. The keyboard's key map was not correct (obviously) and so I accidentally backed myself into a corner and was forced to reboot. When it came back up into WM6, I ran HaRET (0.5.2) once more but it just hung at jumping to kernel. I could not figure it out... I did not change anything so it should have worked but alas no luck.
After fiddling with it some more I was able to get it to get past that point once more but this time it said there was no mmcblkp1 and listed ram0 - 15(?) I flushing the phone to factory (or kitchen rather) and tried again but it will not get past "jumping to kernel" unless I take the SD card out in which case it only boots to the initrd and can not find tty... because there is no card. I have the Debian root file system on the SD card and it is an SDHC 4Gig Transcend card. I know that SDHC is not supported on this phone but it has worked once before.
So now I am at a standstill hoping someone out there could give me a few pointers. My Linux proficiency is probably somewhere in the beginner to moderate range. THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
