DON'T mess with system files unless you know exactly what you are doing and have a backout option ready.
I've tried to install the PE golden update zip several times now -- it appears that it won't start the update process. Currently the EE image is on my PE. (A fact, can't take it back now) I can only assume this puts it in a state where normal recovery with the golden update won't work.
I have some experience with third party firmware on my Droid1. I am a Linux user/admin of 17 years. That said, it didn't keep me from downloading multiple update.zip files from various threads here and getting confused on which did what. ooops. 2 days ago I didn't know there were two different devices: Entourage Edge (EE) and a Pocket Edge (PE). I'm 98% sure I upgraded to e-update.golden.zip (EE) that emusan had tweaked to not do the TARGET != UPDATE check that DarkGrue had success with. Thus, attempting to install the EE firmware on my PE.
At this point I have a brick. I'm willing to try editing a lot of system files at this point -- with or without a backout option. My backout options seem to be gone.
It would be nice to have ClockWorkMod in this device! And I'm interested in cooking up new firmware/roms if we had it. The pile of PE on Woot around Sept 9th should bring in more folks, hopefully some are devs.
