Hi all,

I just purchased a MayGion IP camera and I'd like to replace the stock firmware with something a bit more functional.  I have a couple of questions about OpenIPCam hopefully someone can answer:

1. Is OpenIPCam just for cameras with ARM CPUs?  The wiki seems to suggest so, but my camera is running a Ralink RT5350 which has a MIPS core.

2. How far has the firmware progressed?  I can only find some test instructions which seem to suggest it is just a kernel with no userspace yet.  I have been thinking about creating an IP Camera distribution based on OpenWRT, but don't want to duplicate any effort if there is work in progress here.
