I've flashed the rootfs and a new kernel.
So then I got all excited and inserted my SIM into it and powered up.
Turns out I should have read some more. My current phone (Nokia N80 -
can I run openmoko on that?), is a 3G phone and it seems that the neo
doesn't like it.
I then stole one of my teams SIM and it fired up fine. I get a GSM
signal but cant make phone calls.
I am still finding my way around the phone.
I noticed that the icons disappeared from the home page, anyway I'm off
to investigate the machine.
One thing though
cu -l /dev/ttyACM0
Only gives errors at present
cu: open (/dev/ttyACM0): Permission denied
cu: /dev/ttyACM0: Line in use
My Linux systems skills obviously need honing.
Anyway, I'll head off and study now.
