This is a page to collect everything on getting color display (nokia 1600 for now) to work on r0ket.
Finally there's a l0dable to show a color BMP or animation instead of nickname by nihilant: http://y.nu/nick_colorbmp.zip (includes source and compiled binary).
It only works for color displays and only supports 24- and 32-bits BMP files with resolution 98x(n*70).
There is a built-in menu (central button) to configure the parameters, e.g. the image to display and the delay between the frames… …because if the height of the BMP is an exact multiple of 70, each “frame” is displayed sequentially as an animation (and the interval between the frames is configurable).
Please write more color software! You will have to use own display buffer, but it should be possible somehow. Or fork main firmware and add funny stuff like faded background. If you cleanly do it using ifdefs it might even be integrated in main firmware, but feel free to post links to own git forks on this wiki!
