Hi all!
First of all, greetings for bring us OM 2008.12, it's probably one of
the most great releases of OM
(the boot in particular is reeeeally cool!).

Now, I flashed it yesterday, as follows:

>>  dfu-util -a kernel -R -D Om2008.12-om-gta02.uImage.bin
>>  dfu-util -a rootfs -R -D Om2008.12-om-gta02.rootfs.jffs2
>>  dfu-util -a u-boot -R -D gta02v5_and_up-u-boot.bin

And all it's ok. GSM works, SMS also, GPS, ssh and internet (through
USB) out of the box, etc etc.
I installed illume theme as follows:

>>  /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop
>>  vi /etc/enlightment/default-profile
>>  Change it in "-profile illume"
>>  shutdown now

And after changing Illume configs for "Engine" from "SOFTWARE_16" to
"SOFTWARE"  it works very fine.


Sometimes, it appears almost randomly, OM 2008.12 freezes.
It's a total blocking of the system, nothing works through touchscreen
or ssh, and I'm forced to reboot.
It could be while I'm using TangoGPS or while I'm pressing the answering
button, when I talk or when I close a call.

What do you think about this?

I'll test OM 2008.12 for one or two days but, if this will continue, I
will flash in SHR, in the hope
it will increase the usability of the phone... but, it is a pity, OM
2008.12 with illume is really cool ;)
