i have been reading about this fix for a couple weeks now and how it
is in andy-tracking and testing and how it was supposed to be in
stable "soon."  reading your email, andy, i assume that it is now in
stable.  so i excitedly installed the shr distro since someone else in
the thread mentioned it as a good wsod avoidance choice.  i installed
a rootfs dated 12/16 and a uimage dated 12/14.  well, much to my
dismay, i just got a wsod again.

so, my question is: what is the easiest way to get the wsod fix.
which distro, which uimage, etc.  my choice would be to use andy
tracking since that seems to be the future but i understand that most
of the distros will have some broken bits due to some changes.

this is really the last annoyance for me in using the phone on a regular basis.
