yeah, I damn myself for beeing to scary to flash it before...
rockbox didn't come up with any of my attempts.
If the external mmc is working, I might install rockbox on it, then
flash it from there, preferably a version that does not touch the
internal mcc anymore, (so a non-multivolume-version like plain vanilla
2.4), isn't it ?
Then, if no external mmc is present, the miniMon would tell me (or
you) what the problem is, right ?
If the external mmc does not work too, then the problem is not the
internal mmc-chip, but the driving chip, right ?

I think that's fair.
The display still has his protective foil, the housing has no
scratches, except from a bullet hole (long story), keys and mechs in
good shape as well as any of the sockets (was a 128 fm...)
