Just a note on this.  I've followed this (altered slightly as noted on the
Wiki itself) several times successfully, several images.  About a month ago
the mokoservicescripts.tar.gz file vanished, but a link later in the thread
pointed to a mirror, where mokoscripts_r.tar.gz was available, same
content.  But now that mirror is gone as well it seems.  If anyone wants
the file and can't find it elsewhere, I've got it at
http://newkirk.us/om/mokoscripts_r.tar.gz.  (I ended up stuffing that and a
few other non-feed items in that folder and installing from a script
whenever I reflashed)

Thankfully that is unnecessary with frameworkd running the show.  I'm
dual-booting right now between 2008.8u and Raster+FSO, and I love where
things are going.  FSO includes the multiplexer and a complete dbus
interface to it all, so that I can start up GPRS with just "mdbus -s
org.freesmartphone.frameworkd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device
org.freesmartphone.GSM.PDP.ActivateContext internet3.voicestream.com x x"
out of the box, no configuration or headache, while
"GSM.PDP.DeactivateContext" brings it back down.
