Could you please send me why ?
- Setting up ScratchBox ???
- Downloading, extracting maemo x.x rootstrap ?
- Setting up UI environment like Xnest/Xephyr?
- Setting up CPU_Transparency stuff ??? (need for advanced stuff) ???

I am asking you, so we improve it.

In general scratchbox as already pointed out provides a chrooted
environment, which is not the same as in device development. The armel
rootstrap in SB should atleast provide the same compiled binaries etc as
that on the device, so as to provide properly cross compiled binaries
for the device.

I think the accepted fact is that development for different processor
non-PC devices is different.
