    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Assuming you know how to write to the flash drive in it (assuming it boots from a flash chip), and can find out what the CPU is, then you may be able to build a bootable kernel for it. There may already be one out there. Have you tried googling for that?

    Ok. A quick Google search doesn't turn up any Linux distributions for this phone. What OS does it run currently, Windows Mobile? WinCE?
