i am totally ignorant of computer workings. mother had and loved plain old iopener which died--i think she is sending it to me. i purchased her another on hacked on ebay. my question will a hacked iopener function as plain iopener? if so how? "new" one is running windows. sorry if this is too simplistic a question for this bbs but i really would like some help, thanks!
The easy answer is, it won't function as a plain iopener.
It'll function as an Iopener with Windows on it, basically like a PC.
If you wanted to use the Iopener's original software from the sandisk, you'd need to know how to copy a minimally hacked version to the sandisk, and alter the isp phone # along with the userid and password.
I've done it and it's not really that hard, but there is no e-mail support, and I didn't really want to have to take the time to hack it in.
