Yes. I am still active. The last changes were additional features for
the MSWindows version. I am currently implementing a way to make
native calls via a single ARM instruction. The idea then is to replace
functions with native calls until I can remove all MMU calls from the
ROM. WIthout MMU on todays devices with sufficient RAM would likely
triple the emulator speed, with the replaced functions running at full
speed. The code is not ready to be published yet though.

Einstein should compile for and run on the N810 without many changes,
if any at all. But I assume it does have to be recompiled.

What do you need to get it going? Someone to compile the binary for
you? Did you try the N800 version? It may work without any changes or
even without a recompile.
