Just in time for the holidays ...

(install instructions and script updated on 2090410: see below)

New progress/bugs:

All Ok:
- 20090401: 2.6.28 ok (even 2.6.29-rc2 ok)

  newer package exists), normal + when suspended
- 20090401: wake up when receiving sms
- 20090401: call + echo check

- 20090401: duplicate sms thing: solved
- 20090401: mail ok
- 20090401: wifi ok
- 20090403: voice notes (see my mail/patch) ok
- 20090404: usb cable handling: ok (mailed a patch to Filip, I hope he
  integrates all the 2.6.28 patches and commits them)
- 20090404: bluetooth ok (need to downgrade to bluez3 and not use
  bluez4, install script updated accordingly)
- 20090410: voicemail number is now saved across reboots (see
- 20090410: snooze function works correctly now for repetitive alarms

- 20090412: wlan no longer always "online" after unsuspend. I don't
  know if this saves power or not though ...
- 20090412: SMS's are deleted from SIM after being read (see THIS NEEDS

Problems (more like small nuisances now):
- if you set the time back to something in the past, the clock service
  crashes and you need to restart qtextended if you want to use the
  clock again
- second call incoming needs to be checked if working ok
- bluetooth is not working totally ok, only after initial boot it
  works, not after suspend/resume. Seems to be kernel/bluez3 version
  combo issue ... After suspend/resume bluetooth seems to work, but
  receiving files for sure don't.
- if you try to delete the "Wireless Lan", the system crashes ... cool
  huh, a crashed phone? So for now: don't do it :-)
- there's a race condition with the timers for the alarm when
  vibrating. Sometimes this results in the alarm being dismissed but
  the phone keeps vibrating. Solution for now: set an alarm a minute
  after it, and that will stop the vibrating.

Install instructions:
download the script , read the comments
at the top and then execute the script on your openmoko (after having
flashed the device and made sure internet works).
For those who just want to replace their existing QtE: just download
the QtE compressed file and replace your existing QtE with it:
