ok, but its not all roses:
If you switch to software_x, the gsm icon no longer shows signal
the settings app no longer works (I think they are tied together)
and I still miss/get delayed SMS messages when suspended (I can improve
by removing the battery module, but thats a real pita as you cant tell
at a glance what charge is left)
but overall, a *LOT* better than 2008.9
