Should the debug header information on this page be given its own page, and grouped with the other debugging stuff? I've just spent 10 minutes clicking around looking for this info, after being asked where it was by someone on IRC who couldn't find it.

[edit] SDHC Support?

From what I have gathered, SDHC requires support for SD 2.0. According to Samsung, the S3C2410 does not support that spec, and that is where the SD controller for the Neo1973 is. Given this, I do not believe the Neo1973 will support >2.0GB microSD cards. See What is SDHC? and 2410UserManual.pdf. I would like to edit this on the main page, unless there is a reason it would.

The SD controller can be skipped and the card can be driver through GPIO directly - and this is doable. The problem is I don't know if Linux knows about SDHC at all - or you'd have to teach it all the command set. balrog 14:43, 27 March 2007 (CEST)

Development seems to be coming along in this post about a patch for Kernel 2.6.19. Sirkha 07:45, 10 April 2007 (CEST)
