Getting the firmware:

Zipit updated to version 3.1.08.
I added ROM files to my http server: http://coderx.cjb.net/~zippy/ .
You can download the files from http://www.zipitwireless.net/~zippy/
as well, I'm storing them for backup. I hope this helps the
decryption/decompression efforts.

The 2MB ROM image contains a bootloader, updatable variables and
GZIP files for both the kernel image and the ramdisk fs image

kernel.gz - GZIPed kernel image (expands to over 1MB)
ramdisk.gz - GZIPed ramdisk image (expands to over 4MB)

To examine the files on the ramdisk you need a Linux box.
Un-gzip the ramdisk.gz file and mount it.
Something like:

cp ??? /tmp/ramdisk.gz
gzip -d /tmp/ramdisk.gz
mkdir /mnt/ramdisk
mount /tmp/ramdisk /mnt/ramdisk -o loop

Hello Darren,

Wireless Messenger device.

We have received your request for the GPL code used in the Zipit
