    Okay, well I've managed to get my SplashTop running at 1680x1050 (native) if only temporarily (I broke it soon afterwards trying to update Pidgin) but if you are looking for a bit of help with it (and a script and some apps to make your life easier) I have started hosting a section on my website dedicated to hacking ExpressGate...

    If anyone is interested here it is:

    Also, if anyone is interested in expanding on the info that appears there just contact me (prefferably via e-mail at [email protected])

    Regards,
    SPARTAN

    I've been trying for the past week to change the resolution. I've tried using the terminal with the command xrandr -s "1920x1080x32" but it says "1920x1080" is an unsupported mode. I then tried to xrandr --addmode <output> "1920x1080x32" but I don't know what to put for output. I've tried VGA-0, VGA-1, and nothing works. What the hell is the output supposed to be? I'm just one step away from adding a resolution mode and getting Express Gate to work at 1080p!

    I don't have a file named bs-tinyx.sqx for some reason!

    As I said - I don't know how to do it.

    If you manage to find information about that - please post it here, or at least your modified bs-tinyx.sqx or bs-xorg.sqx or whatever you might change.

    I tried to use Terminal to edit xorg.conf inside Express Gate
    You cant edit anything inside EG. The content of / is located at RAM disk and is temporarily. The only method to do so is unsquash -> edit -> re-squash packages in asus.sys folder.

    I tried to use Terminal to edit xorg.conf inside Express Gate, but I can't seem to do so. After I cd into /etc, I tried to sudo nano xorg.conf, but it doesn't work. I've tried sudo gedit too, but it's not working! Can anyone help?

    Does anyone know how I can add resolution modes so that I can switch to 1920x1080?

    brings up a black screen
    Means you did something wrong. I can't help you there, as I don't know how to change resolution myself. Try asking linux-guru somewhere on irc or jabber-conferences, as there are just X.org and configuration is the same as in normal linux.

    Now it starts up, although it brings up a black screen. Did I edit the wrong file? What file am I supposed to unsquash and edit? What lines should be changed?

    I tried the commands dd of=version bs=1 seek=32 count=0
    That command is not right for what you need

    I think you'd better try
    dd if=version of=version32 bs=32 count=1
    and then move "version" to some safe place and rename "version32" to "version".
