I can only speculate, but I would expect a JTAG port to be made
available -- probably on the phone itself, but failing that, through the
"hackers lunchbox" (or was that toolbox?) accessory. That would allow
you to reprogram flash without relying on the existing flash booting, as
long as you have the JTAG connection and software on your development

Subject: Question about kernel level hacking

As I am mainly a low level programmer I will probably try to put my
hands on the Neo at kernel level like customizing
the linux kernel with patches or even try to program the Neo with my own
I think that the openess of the platform will allow me that. Is it
Is there a way to recover a mistake at this level (that is, the boot
loader doesn't work any more)?

Thanks a lot,
