so I started pulling my 770 apart. First I flashed in the developer
rootfs, which turned out to be very striped down - so I decided to
immediately switch back to standard and add a few things on the way.
But first I needed to get the original image back, to do this you
have to go here.
And by the way, this nice awesome hardware is made in good old Germany!
I started going through the filesystem, a modified stuff like
/etc/sudoers to include user ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/sh
so I can just get a root shell, without calling gainroot.
Searching further I found all the images, like the big Nokia logo
that you see on startup (/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/hildon/qgn_indi_startup_nokia_logo.png) and the Nokia hands (/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/hildon/qgn_indi_nokia_hands.png). Guess what, of course I replaced them - no big
magic. I also found this funny logo - actually its not funny if you get to see it
Also all the themes are nicely split up into multiple files, so modifying
or creating new themes should be easy (I can't do graphics).
I guess I'll built me a real nice image over the next days. Also I don't
know how the licensing is - can modified images based on the original
firmware be redistributed?
