I currently have Qtopia on my microSD, it doesn't work 100% but enough to use
it as a backup phone OS. The key is to follow the wikis--- but make sure
you format and fill the sd card from a linux box, not from the phone. do
everything as root. also, make sure to update your u-boot so that it can
handle fat and ext file systems. finally, be very careful in uploading the
root filesystem -- -make sure you mount a .jffs2 (follow the wiki) on your
linux box and then FROM that you should create a tarball --- -which you THEN
and only THEN move over to the rootfs partition of the sd card. Otherwise
some important dev nodes get lost in the process.
wiki I used to start:
