Hi Goldfingas,
I kinda like your attitude, but there is no need to be afraid of
posting *anything* here. Just searching a bit around may decrease the
pain, since drop-dead-stupid questions are usually not answered.

Concerning your m3, I think we can only say "dunno".
From what I read of the wiki, no developer has ever seen an m3.
There is a line for the m5 that goes like "don't know, looks similar
to x5, don't have one", but 'I' do not know how far the m3 is from the
m5 or the x5 again.

If I see it correctly, the m3 does not have a proper display, only the
remote has, which *would* make it a big bunch more difficult to get
things done.
I am not able to discover any more information about this device.

So, starting a new port usually means collecting a *lot* of internal
information, which may include taking apart a device, taking high
resolution photographs or scans of it, identify chips, trace
schematics and so on.
We dont' *ask* you to take your baby a part, but once it's broken
anyway, a developer may *beg* you for it :-D

In short: No, not supported, no timeline, no developer on it, no chance.

best regards, lImbus
