    Hi.

    I've been given a Magalhães netbook, basically a clone of Intel's 2nd version of Classmate PC. I'm thinking of doing some modifications to it:

    - replace or remove splash screen that says "Magalhães". Is there an easy tool for this?
    - replace original wireless b/g card (USB\VID_0DB0&PID_6877, Mini-PCIe MS-8677) with a wireless b/g/n + bluetooth 3.0 combo (probably Intel, Atheros or Broadcomm from ebay). Will it be recognized? Will I be able to use FN+F1 to enable/disable the card like with the original, or can the BIOS be modded to allow it?

    The following link contains 3 BIOS files: MG1ASLIC.ROM (modded with SLIC), MG1ABAK.ROM (from backup) and MG1ANET.ROM (from internet). The last 2 have different CRCs but they're probably the same BIOS.

    Hope you can help me ;)
