smoku on meego-arm today said that he has success in booting dell streak from p2 of a sdcard with a boot img flashed to the device.
The trick is to get a correctly configure initrd when building the boot.img
He was going to post later.
This should allow you to progress without the sdcard adaptor.
I have also has two confirmations of the procedure at
Sorry, no news from me. I'm still waiting on getting the right hardware. I don't think we can do anything with just the phone. No matter what file transfers I make, if they're on ext3, the whole file system goes.
Maybe it's stupid configuration, but I can't do anything until I have a sd to micro sd converter. Not sure about everyone else, but I don't think there will be much progress until we start working entirely from source, which will be painful.
There are one or two things that are just configuration and file tweaks, like wifi possibly, but I can't tell from here.
