Vagitizer : Yes, Ezex will sell you an eval copy of the epods one (well, their base model that the epods was built on) with whatever you like on it for US$599.
But that doesn't change the fact that
1. You would still need some way to copy the ROM contents off it
2. You would still need some way to flash the ROM to the epods.
I think those are the real problems, far more than whether or not PPC 3.0 can be obtained.
I don't want to sound negative, because a 3.0 upgrade would be great, I just think we need to solve the difficult problems first before we run towards the easy stuff.
Oh, and SiliconIce : Their minimum order size is 500.
epods, 2.04 Hack, 64MB Compact Flash, SMC 2632W
