Can I have 3MX on Impulse NPX-900???
« on: December 03, 2009, 09:49:33 PM »
H,i first post so be nice please..!

I just bought a lot of The Impulse NPX-900 thought they would be good for kids Xmas at least until I tried to use one myself.
I couldnt hook up with internet, well I could, it showed connected but nothing in the browser screen, really cant suss out the wireless option 'cause when I try to configure it the options are in Chinese.
And obvioulsy I then find out there is no installations to be had...Damn!?!?
So new OS sounds good. read up on it, 3mx fantastic, download it, bang it on a SD Card switch on press f3...nothing, tried again nothin, different SD Card nothing just keeps booting up as normal...!
Anyway please help guys, I am a noob on the loose.
Just in case the specs are different:
400MHZ INTEL/MARVELL XSCALE CPU
128M SDRAM
1GB NAND FLASH.
So can this be done, can I change the OS? If so does any one have an Idiots guide..
Thomas

Sadly nothing on this forum in the form of software or alternate OS's will work on that device. Xscale is an ARM based CPU. Everything found here is for MIPS based cpu's.  :'(

Good luck on your search. Find anything interesting let us know.

Cheers.

Good God !!! its John McClane... ;)

Good thinking, a mouse pad..but.. ive got five of them (bargain couldnt resist).
Ive decided to send them back and have just bought some of the Maplins variety
instead.
Cheers

But I might just keep one to play with.
