    Hi pb,

    No luck with the phonebook app. I did everything you suggested, and it still hangs.

    Also, where can I get the file etablet.rom ?

    Thanks to all on the forum. I've been working out the templates for the Notes application. They are located /eTablet/etc/template. In each template directory there is the png (edit: note the png must be png-24, not png-8 if you want sync to Evernote to work correctly) of the image at 768x888, a summary png image at 97x97, and an xml file containing the file information and labels.

    Note that the Name tag in the xml must be the directory name in which the three files reside.

    Attached is an install script for two new music stave templates I created as an example. Edit: Updated to work correctly with Evernote.

    Enjoy

    Hi mrcndrpqn,

    The latest ROM file is located here:
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/EeeAP/ENote_0_Rom_TW_81_0126.zip

    You'll have to unzip it to get to the file, of course.

    About the phonebook.. If you are comfortable opening a telnet session to the EeeNote, you can check how your SD card is mounted:
    1] Telnet to 169.254.2.1
    2] Login as user "root" with no password.
    3] Type "mount".
    4] Type "/usr/local/eTablet/remount.sh".

    Paste the output into a message here so we can see if your SD card is getting properly mounted as read-write.

    Hi BodeNGE,

    Thanks for the images.

    It would be great if someone would consider putting together a package of translated image templates.

    As mentioned before, there is an English ROM which should probably not be loaded because of possible bootloader compatibility issues, but it does contain English templates for the calendars, tasks, and some other items. The templates could be extracted from the ROM and packaged as an install script.

    The English ROM is located here:
    ftp://ftp.asus.com/pub/ASUS/EeeAP/Rom_ENU_031442.zip

    You would have to:
    1] Extract the gzipped "etabletz root" sections and unzip them.
    2] Concatenate the unzipped files.
    3] Mount the resulting file as a disk in linux.
    4] Unzip, then un-cpio the "/data/rootfs.tar.gz" file from the ext2 partition.
    5] locate the "/eTablet/etc/template" folder from the un-cpio'ed archive.

    I should probably write a program to extract the firmware parts, since I'm currently doing it with a hex-editor.

    Tried mounting in XP, and yes, it does need to be mounted in Linux...

    can anyone help me out?

    I am a eee note user in Korea, and trying to tweak this thing can display korean letters.

    thanks to pbarrette and other users, I managed to sneak into the eee note with the telnet connection.

    then I tried to copy some font files into the device, required re-mount, and I copied the font files in it.

    the location of font files I found out is

    /usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.6.2-arm/lib/fonts/

    I copied the korean font(ttf file) in it, but eee note still can't display the korean letters.

    so I tried to find some kind of config files about font files, but I couldn't find any.

    usually on linux, the font config file should look like 'fonts.conf' or so.

    but I can't see any on the eee note.

    can anyone help me with this issue?

    The only definition I can find for the fonts is in the style sheet located in the root directory. Try modifying there.
    /userStyle.css

    Hi euankr,

    You may want to check:
    /eTablet/etc/setting/sys.config

    Try changing "default=en" to "default=kr". There are no Korean translation files, so your menus should stay in english, but that is also how the default font is chosen by the system.

    You could also have a look here:
    OSAKANA TARO???? - page 2

    This person is also on the forums here and has done some translation to Japanese. He also has a download on his blog that contains the ".ts" files you would need to compile ".qm" files for your own language.

    Thanks pb.

    I tried to change the sys.config into 'ko', but it didn't work.

    after I read the blog, I tried to overwrite all the ttf files in the fonts folder.

    with this, I managed to change the font in the reader menu, but I can't still see korean letters in the menu screen, nor in the web browser.

    I'll keep trying... don't you have any more suggestions? :(
