The word that we as proud owners of a Zaurus are part of the happy few Android users is traveling fast. Thanks for mentioning my efforts guys, but most credits go to others, I just followed their instructions and created a hassle-free installation so others can give it a try as well.
I've added the installation instructions from my earlier post in the menu on the left. Installation won't get easier than this I think, and believe me, it's really worth giving it a try. So install it while it's still fresh :-)

I'm still working on it, so it may be a bit premature to give it a try by following the instructions step by step.
Please leave a note if you find any errors. Thanks in advance!

I googled a bit, searching for opinions on this specific model. To my astonishment, I read in a review here that the reviewer
had a bit of trouble with the g-string coming out of tune recently
I was flabbergasted, really. Hellˇˇˇˇˇ, what's the big deal here, every time I tried (that was after finding out where the g-string was) it definitely sounded out of tune!!

I checked the symptoms and did a post-diagnosis so now I know what was going on with me the last week or so. It wasn't "just" a common cold, no, I had the flu!!
Oh yeah, and by the way, stophoest certainly doesn't have the effect the name (dutch for stop coughing) suggests. It's just a way of selling bad tasting candy to sick people like me. Well, paracetamol and lots of rest did the trick for me, like always.

Band of horses will perform in Paradiso, Amsterdam on 1.March 2008. It has been a while since we visited a concert, so this would be a nice opportunity.

LinuxMCE in favor of M$ Vista. Vista is suckin' big time, period! It's a 10+ minute boot each time, and after 5 minutes or so the systems hangs completely. So I finally decided to dump it. Installation of LinuxMCE was a drag, but finally I got it installed. Playing music and watching movies works great, but somehow my Hauppauge PVR350 (including the infra red control) is not detected. That means I'm missing quite some of the media center experience (whatever that may be), and I'm unable to control the system using a remote control.
Now I see that there's a new beta available, based on Kubuntu 0710. I guess that means I have to spent some time reinstalling

Poky 2.6.23 kernel with a copy of the Android OS from the SDK (qemu) emulator.
Installation on the Zaurus is done in the usual way:
1. Download zImage.bin, updater.sh, gnu-tar and android-root.tar.gz and copy the files to a SD card
2. Remove battery and power adapter cable
3. Wait for 5 seconds
4. Replace battery, close and lock battery cover
5. Attach power adapter cable
6. Keep OK button pressed while pressing on/off switch
7. From the Japanese menu, choose option 4 (Update), then 2 (SD) and finally Y
Flashing starts, and you are asked if you want to flash the kernel, if you want the microdrive to be formatted and if you want the root filesystem to be installed.
Accept all questions answering them with y
After flashing is complete, the machine is rebooted. Login with root and type /start to start Android.
This is the basic version, without any of the patches found across the Net.
Have fun, and share your results and findings of course!

this blog I created a complete installable distro.
The speed is astonishing, I never thought a Java based OS would be able to be this responsive!
There's lot to be done of course. Touchscreen isn't working, as is networking, the display is in portrait mode on default and a lot of applications are still missing. But it's a nice begin!
Great to have this working on my Zaurus, moreover when you know that devices shipped with Android will be sold in the second half of 2008. So we're one of the happy few, and I like that.
