Fixes a few little bugs in a.o. the lcd4linux diff, documents library a bit more. Download Browse Source (Sourceforge)


Experimental, this version moves a lot of image processing from the device-code to a library called (how original) libst2205. This makes supporting other devices easier. Download


  • 12-bit mode supported, Coby DP-151 should work now.
  • Modified interface to the device. Programs directly interfacing with /dev/sdX *won't* work anymore, go use libst2205.
  • New: lcd4linux patch + example
  • Backlight control support (untested)

As usual, if you already have a hacked device, please restore your device to it's original firmware (by flashing fwimage.bak of the install of st2205tools you've hacked it with) before using this package.

  • The last pixel in a row (x=128 or 127, depending on how you call it) and the last column (y=128 or 127) are not being displayed (at least not in the output of the MPlayer plugin). Just black or garbage. --Bertm
  • One minor bug. The phack-executable doesn't accept -l, but the help does show this option. The setpic-tool however works great. --TD-er 01:03, 22 January 2008 (CET)
  • README contains old information (not urgent) --Bertm
  • 12-bit Coby doesn't function right. See Talk:Phackv1.3 for details (seems like it wants to have 24-bit). --Bertm
