Comment(by rhk):

 Ok, finally got -29 kernel installed from
 /uImage-moredrivers-GTA02_andy-tracking-d1a9cf85c8608601.bin with modules

 This Terminator is a tough one :)

 Newer kernel changed it so that no matter if I try -o 3 or -o 1 it makes
 the same very high beep and -o 0 and -0 2 stops it. It might be a little
 quieter than with the old kernel or it's just my ears getting destroyed
 slowly by the beep, making me insane :) No, it's really not THAT bad but I
 really wouldn't like to hear it when speaking on the phone.

 md5sum /dev/random - no effect
 pressing around the screen/phone - no effect
