And that worked for me 3 (three) times already, without any hickups.
But pichlo is right, it is not 100% safe. Nevertheless I would (and surely I have to and will ) go that route!

and one (two?) time(s) it was also between different HW revisions!
okay, last time I lost somehow support of 'multiboot' package, which btw was deprecated long time ago but normal boot/work behaviour

Someone once posted a joke "mod" made by glueing two partially functional N900s together. Despite an extensive search I could not find the link.

The search facility on TMO sucks big time. It cannot search for words shorter than 4 characters (so "CPU" or "duo" are out) and limits the results to 12 pages so hoping to find the wanted thread manually in the search results is often doomed to failure too.

I was hoping the original poster of said thread would speak up but he has probably not seen you post.

Found it! You're right, it wasn't exactly easy to find.

Oh.

A part of me knew, that this was a joke...yet I wanted I believe.

I tried googling "core duo n900", without any luck, so I thought maybe this was a secret project.

Thanks for clearing things up.

It is not really a joke, just a lot of work/(not so)fun But there are some Problems

http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...10&postcount=5

Im wondering if a second n900 is really the right expansion module for a first n900 in mobile role after you manage the connection/escape from the firsts n900 closed old hardware and software.

Have you any advice for someone buying an N900 in 2017?

I got one for the first time, and would like a few hints especially related to current software packages.
