Subject: Re: Button release detection?
From: Robert Hak (

Yes. You can detect button usage. It's how we are doing it. 'Use the
source Luke'.

As to the firmware change. Possible? Yes. Likely? No Try writting it
and submitting a patch. We'll take alook at it.

I was wondering if there is a way to detect when a button is
depressed, and again when it is released. This would be very useful
for games. On a related note, would it be possible to load a game or
scheduling program as the main firmware using rolo so it would take
up as
much memory as needed?
