sure that if you don't have text feedback, mapping the buttons cannot work.

I had a look at the plugin mechanism.
The big struct containing all the pointers is touchy to make backward
compatibility.
Is there not another way of making system calls through a trap or
something like that? (like most modern OS)

I saw a flash in my player jukebox. I have read somewhere in the list
that you had a failed attempt in flashing the player. Are you sure there
is no way for recovering a badly flashed player? (jtag or something like
that)

I would be glad to help for player flashing because I could not find how
to connect to the 'ON' button.

Automatic power on is clearly a must have for the car application.
