 You can also use a MP130 ROM. Other that from then on the 120 will
claim to be a 130, I haven't noticed a difference. MP130's die quite often,
there's a good chance to pick one up for cheap.

This is easy. If you know what you do, it'll take you about 90 seconds. If
you don't, it'll take you as long as you need to read the upper half of
www.pda-soft.de/130_disassemble.html plus about 90 seconds.
If you don't feel up to it, I can do it for you free of charge if you pay

> 4. Any other suggestions that might be good for kids?

Love. Fresh air. Respect. Education. Exercise. Music.
Open-minded parents. Time without computers.

Fortunately, 120's don't have backlight ;-))

Good luck
