For some internal pics of the Gmini 400, try the gmini400.com site (can't
offer any direct links to the pics, they're terrible and I refuse to repeat
them here! ;-).

So possibly the linav project (http://linav.free.fr/) is closer to get
something to work on it.

Or you suck out all the info available everywhere, setup a cross compiler and
start porting/writing Rockbox. That requires quite some (embedded) programming
skills though.
