I have a few observations about the DSI interface, which I am hope others can qualify.
It appears that all that is required to drive DSI display are one or more data lanes. There is no requirement for a separate I2C EDID bus as the primary lane is bi-directional and acts as a command and control bus - correct?
Looking at the schematic for a Nokia N8 it uses two lanes plus two GPIO for backlight control which signal a DB1754 LED backlight controller. None of the GPIO was brought out to the DSI connector, so the simplest way to control a backlight is to jumper the connector to some of the GPIO pins?
Google Nokia_N8-00_RM-596_schematics_v2.0byfirdous.pdf and view http://www.parts4repair.com/product_ima ... 8_zoom.jpg
for more info.
Even if I connected the display, it seems there is no signal on the DSI pins so I guess there is nothing can be done with the DSI interface at this point?
