"xrandr -q" and "xrandr -s 240x320" work for me (and effectively crash 
X, since you can't use the keyboard any more, and illume doesn't adjust 
very well...

Also, the touch screen doesn't seem to understand that the resolution 
change, which makes using it pretty difficult.  Finally, display looks 
kind of funky in 240x320 mode, almost as though it's not quite driving 
the LCD correctly.

I have no idea how to get it into 8 bit mode.
