    I recently bought a cheapo pic frame but my intent is different. I want to understand the direct inputs for the lcd and get rid of the control board. maybe use it for a microtv or other display with a simple power supply and and composite input or some other. is this possible.

    Did you have any trouble with getting the device connected when attempting to upload the new firmware?

    With Ubuntu 8.04 it doesn’t appear to be getting assigned to a device node, which I suspect related to the “unknown partition table” error I saw in the below dmesg output. Just curious if you or any readers had any thoughts!

    you need the latest svn snapshot of lcd4linux and installed libst2205u. build lcd4linux yourself and make sure your enabled the st2205 driver during the ./configure step (something like ./configure –with-drivers=st2205u).

    I saw that thanks to you there is an OpenWrt package st2205tool. I’m having trouble getting this to work with my Innovage-shift3 picframe and OpenWrt 8.09.1 as I describe here: https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=14726
    Do you have any ideas that I could try?

    I know this is quite old, but is it possible to 1) display the GUI and 2) mirror the images.
