Hello all
I've been trying to create a new root filesystem to load onto my 770 device 
with some applications already built in. So what I've done is extract the 
rootfs from the OS 2006 binary as described by the "how to" then I 
downloaded the xterminal package, and downloaded all the packages that it 
needs which don't come with the operating system. I use "dpkg -x <package 
name> <root location>" to extract those packages to the rootfs that I have. 
I then tar the rootfs, use tar2jffs2 and try to flash it to my device. When 
I do this, I have the X terminal already installed after flashing. However, 
the application manager will no longer load. Does anyone have any 
suggestions for why this might be, or how I could go about debugging my
