ive finally got my hand on a emate and i've swapped the rom simms.
booting the 2100 was difficult. first it wouldnt, the atfer a few tries
with a power adapter finally i got a kind of boot. no sound and no
welcome message, just a black screen with some vague dots and stipes.
it seems that it was the calibration screen, but very distorted. so the
screens for the emate and the 2100 are not the same. the emate is
bigger in size.

anyway after returning the rom simms and gazing at my splendid
soldering job on the serial port a few years back i fired up my 2100
just to notice that besides a clean brain wipe and reset, the factory
calibration problem persists. :-(

but it is true, any system patches are erased and you have to start
from scratch. My 2100 still charges fine, but the message is annoying.
