In my experience, the revision that cpuinfo reports is not as expected:
Hardware    : GTA02
Revision    : 0350

I've gta02v5, but I would be afraid to simply guess that 0350 means v5.
Querying the modem gives me what I would expect:

root at om-gta02:~# libgsmd-tool -m shell
libgsm-tool - (C) 2006-2007 by Harald Welte and OpenMoko, Inc.

revision: "HW: GTA02BV5, GSM:
