LG enV3 VX9200 meets DSLinux: Tetris in your pocket
Jon Nileprecinct Feline
If not now, when?
Certainly Im entertained by the various Windoze implementations of Tetris (particularly TetrisArena)
not to mention miniclips Flash version which runs so handsomely under Linux.
Still, there comes a time when the EA version these folks run on their cellphones is
just too kewl to be without. Click below to see my CraigsList ad.
There has to be another way.
DSLinux is supported
I got the thing from a guy for $20 because hed flashed it once & its outlived its usefulness.
Theres no point in using it for service considering its a full featured camera,
image display station, & MP3 player as well as a Tetris platform.
The Windoze interface requires a 1.5M driver download & the forums agree
theres no point messing with the sync app. But once its connected
& its modem USB mode set & activated, DSLinux mounts its 4G SD card uneventfully right away.
It stores alot more than MP3s JPGs & vstore downloads (hee hee).
The VX9200 considers my car charger to be perfectly standard although it warns about
others I have but then charges from them anyway. The Verizon charger is worth a $30
investment tho because it supplies the standard USB cable which enables both data transfer
& charging from the computer as well as the wall outlet. A 2.5mm to 3.5mm audio converter
permits playing music thru headsets & soundsystems, although its true if its a bit loose
& the flip is open it can send noise which is interpreted as a BlueTooth voicecommand request.
A PDF of the userguide is easy to find online.
A full featured device its hard to be without
Tetris has come a long way since the 80s.
