    what are the major differences (in hardware) between the HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) and the HTC Wizard that Linux sees?

    I know of GPS, accelerometer, and possibly the trackball.

    If the Dream is not too different from the Wizard, could we use the Linux kernel from it for this project?

      No.
      Our linwizard branch is based on the omap850 whereas the
      HTC Dream is a Qualcomm CPU that needs the msm sources.

      The linwizard sources are patched to work specifically with the
      HTC wizard. Other omap850 phones will also work but need
      their own drivers for the rest of non SoC devices.

      Using our sources for msm won't be any help at all.
