It's working fine. ... just takes your time to get it installed right :)

I just managed to install ASU so it works fine for all normal phone 
stuff.  (Call/SMS/Conntacts/GPS/GPRS)
I will set up/update a wiki-page for the ASU installation i have done.
And maybe i am also able to create a rootfs with my packages. so that 
the first
installation of a working ASU would be easyer for the beginning.

But first i have to clean up some things. .... btw could someone please 
send me a fresh ASU- "/etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia" ? ;)
