Lol is anyone up to making a Cyanogenmod distro for the Epic? My friend and I just got our hands on the kernel sources if anyone's interested: http://www36.zippyshare.com/v/P1YUdKUw/file.html

Anyone doing cross compiling on these things?  I'd love any help to get some emulators running!  Nes and Snes mostly.

Mick inspired me and with his help, got Doom running on the Ultra. I hacked in cheat codes and future wad support.

Yes I just copied all the stuff into the existing root FS.

Yes, dftp, surgeon etc are still there, pretty much the same as the leappads etc.

Hi folks, I'm trying to find an alternate location for the LeapFrog NXP3200 sources linked to from this page: http://elinux.org/LeapFrog_NXP3200_Platform:_Source_Code The server that had originally hosted them seems to be no more: http://files.poxlib.org/

So if anyone has tarballs of this source, or knows of another location I'd love to know about it.

Thanks

Whats inside that blob chip in the original leap frog units?
http://wtfmoogle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/lfsomething.jpg
I decapsulated it with some nitric acid to find out.
Looks to be some sort of flash chip
http://wtfmoogle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/lfsomething1.jpg
best info I could find off the chip die
http://wtfmoogle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/lfsomething6.jpg

fyi the LF1000 has some sort of top later to protect from decapsulation

Wow, hard core RE.  Nice.  It does look like quite a bit of flash.  Could you tell if it was NOR or NAND?

I took it out of the case. If you can send me a DC adapter, I may be able to fix it.

Hello and thanks for accepting me.

Short story. I bought a Leapster Explorer for...nothing. Got serial access, and Networking connection thanks to OpenLFConnect. I try to compile the buildroot from Jason Pruitt without sucess. Then i found the folder of Mike Wolak from a post on this place (in http://www.epromfoundry.com ...and now it's down :( ...specifically searching for ohboy) and in that folder had a compiled image.

I used it (via Surgeon) and it work. I manage to download ohboy, fceux, and some other stuff (yeah Mike, the guy using the bandwidth it was me, sorry!).

All work well and nice.

What's the catch...i can't make that ohboy (for instance) starts automatically (after boot). I'm messing around with inittab, but every time i make the app run from there, i got a Seg. Fault. (On tty0, pts, etc...)

On the youtube video, Mike can start ohboy automatically. That's what i'm looking for.

Any help will be grateful!

Many thanks to Jason, Mike, elinux, the guy(s) from Moogle, and the entire community for still working (and playing) on those interesting toys.

Greetings from Chile.
PD: Sorry for mispellings or bad english.

Thanks... I spent so much time on this for the boot up map chooser and cheat codes.  Did a couple all-nighters and skipped work 1 day ha ha.

Anybody else been playing with the LeapsterGS these days? I just picked one up on sale for $30 at ToysRUS and planning to start poking about during Christmas week... Happily my DJHI seems to work great in it :)

It's a serial + microSD breakout board that fits in the didj/leapster cartridge slots. Moogle cooked it up back in the Didj days and I was lucky enough to get one while he was making them. http://wtfmoogle.com/?page_id=947

The Android based LeapPad Epic that comes out sometime this month could possibly open up some interesting homebrew. Though, at that point, it's basically just Android apps anyways. So, maybe it's not all that interesting, but it could be though.

Yeah, and it's even more so here, as it goes for around 10K pesos here in the Philippines, even if the specs make it no different from a typical cheapo grey-market/white-box tablet.

I do have a ton of leappad 2's that can be used for development etc which I am willing to give free.  The screen is missing on most or cracked and just ask that shipping is covered.  This could help developers to play around with them all they want.  I don't have enough knowledge to make major firmware adjustments myself. I was repairing them for a year or so and got burned out.  I have maybe 100 or so
