Help for Develop RS Media

I am new for Developing Applications for rs media ,I have some Questions : 1- Is there a way to develop an application for RS Media using .NET?2- I want to Excecute a program at RS Media But not By RS Media Development kit because it use the SDcard which is an old and small storage.3- Is there is better way to interact with the robot better than IR remote ? 4 - Can I connect /replace the Processor by another enhanced one ? or plug a Pocket PC like RoboMe ..I think the Best thing in RS MEDIA than ROBOMe is it has alot of motors .. so I want to use something like that (without hurting the head ) and with total control it by My c# code or c++.

Thank you for care and help,
I checked the RS Media Develuopment kit

http://sourceforge.net/projects/rsmediadevkit/files/?source=navbar

I liked some of them like :
CopyBot ( I read the documentation it says that it include the source code , but in fact I didn't find it .., do you have its link.

2- If I used the USBNET way then I'll not open the robot and hack it's motherboard right?

3- I read in one thread that you says there is a way to control it using wifi
http://www.robocommunity.com/forum/thread/20308/newish-RSM-hacks/
,
how to?
What is the combonents needed : because I search on the internet I found many USB to Wifi , but it seems it convert the computer's usb , I want the robot to send ,
computer recieve and computer send , robot receive.

What is needed and software to use it ?

So USB cable allows rs media to transfer files b/w pc and Rs Media but not control it and send commands and execute programs/commands,

like this article says :

http://rsmediadevkit.sourceforge.net/usb_console.html

Right ?

so even if I made this so I have to hack it by serial port to control it right ?

Okay sir so I a agree and I decide to hack it by using serial way:
do you have a simplist and step by step with Pictures and videos how to do it ,

because I see some but they was not clear and was not all of them loaded fine

Also I want a Hello world program or anything I can try this with a code I can run by myself..,
I'm sorry about that but I want to start from a long time ago but I was afraid before I meet you :)

I found the way to open and items to connect by Bluetooth ( I hope it will work fine)
Do you have an example for code and libs to can execute on the RS Media using serial Bluetooth ?
Is it deferent than wire Serial for programming ?
what is the tools needed ?

In the past I Used the Java development kit using the SD card , now I want to use the Bluetooth I will plug in.
thanks.
