Note : this is still an old kernel. 2.6.19-hh8
kernel only works on CF card for now...
You can compile your own fake WinCE update
downloading this archive,
unpacking it and simply typing make. This will create a AD620N.nb0
file that you can flash on your A620.
You can find a compiled toolchain here. If you
want to use another GCC toolchain, please modify the Makefile and
change the value of the SDK variable.
Linux distribution files are in the dist
is a file containing an EXT2 filesystem (mount it with a loop device).
Kernel of 2007/01/21

Sources are now hosted on official Handhelds CVS.
Opie and GPE
In order to launch Opie, you should follow those

image. Those image are images of Asus 716 port. I do not
provide any support for them, I'm only a kernel developper, so
most applications works, but some don't !
Put a CF card (at least 128Mo) into you PC CF card
reader, and as root, create 2 primary partitions on this card: the
first one should be a FAT32 partition (type 0x0B) of approximatly 10Mo,
and the second should be a EXT2 partition. Those partitions MUST
be primary partitions (not extended) (they will be /dev/hda1
and /dev/hda2 in your future Linux system)
format those partitions
copy zImage file into the root of FAT32
partition. Unpack linexec archive into this partition.
unpack the Opie disk image into the EXT2 partition
plug it into your A620
Execute linexec.exe and enjoy !
