Uhm.. you don't like the media player? use mplayer... you don't like
the browser? there is microb (based on mozilla and open source) you
don't like the default mail program? there is modest and/or claws mail
(open source). And you don't need to reflash whole device to install
these programs.. btw i have a n800, don't know if these programs work
on n770.
