When you go for opkg update && upgrade, and if that upgrades illume for you,
it could result into your new keyboards disappearing.

Doing things mentioned here [2] to install a good utility for gprs etc. and
then updating the system may also undo some modifications, so backing up
89qtopia after [2] is a good idea.  You can have the qpe process disappear,
and the dialers, messaging etc. fail after updates.

It will help you rescue the setup when you restore it.  You will gain more
insights with actual experience.
