i bought a very cheap raspberry pi screen) from dx.com. Today i got it working. I had initially tried to run the terrible install script (shell that replaces big chunks of /etc and /var) to only make the pi stop booting.
Instead i downloaded the full custom raspbian image .
Not sure how much to trust this little device now - no idea what the diff to a vanilla raspbian image it. But it's working. see here the pretty pi:
