Seems like I-Openers are trickling in to the NYC area.
I just picked up one on Saturday from CC in College Point, Queens.
There's a sticker on the box, with 4/25 on it, I guess that's the shipped date.
I have 2 more on order (different names) right after the 1st one.
(Same sale dude, had him place 3 orders with different names, address and credit card).
Original order was 3/19.
Hopefully I'll be able to pick up the other 2 next weekend.
Seems like this is version 3 of the iopener, can not log in to root at all
and won't let you bring up a command line prompt, once the demo starts.
Got the dremel tool to grind down the epoxy, then scraped off some more of the epoxy with a jeweler
screw driver, but it wasn't enough. As I tried the pop out the chip, I cracked the socket,
luckily it still works, but it gave me a big scare, as I got I black screen when I powered on the iopener...
but once the chip was out, I cleaned the edge of the chip and the socket,
popped the chip back in and back up it came :)
Messing with the WebSurfer is a whole lot easier...
I've also received my Virgin box today, 1 day earlier than I'm suppose to get it according to UPS's website.
All I need now is a MailStation and I'll have all the toys I need for this year or not... :)
Anyone see those eBillBoards LCD Ad panels around the city?
Like at newsstands, pizza joints, etc...
Will be nice to snag one of those to hack... see here-> www.ebillboards.com
