Updates on Philips MCI 730

I finally was able to get source code package from Philips. Initially my request (via support) was denied. Then i sent message to the open.source@philips.com and finally got source tar. It contains a lot of interesting, including user interface binaries and kernel source/tool-chain. Currently i am far from my home, but soon will return and will try to root this device. The package also contains some scripts to create firmware update package and uboot source code. Firmware is based on MontaVista Linux 4.0 with 2.6.10 kernel. I think it should be possible to get root access without serial console. Stay tuned 🙂
