Hi Roland,

1) I never had any problems setting the date/time, no matter what the rootfs
used was. But, as I said before: when you set the date/time back to
something in the past, the clock service crashes and you need to restart
qtextended. Also the initial screen asks you for the date/time at first boot
after flashing, and that setting fails indeed, I need to set it afterwards
in the clock app again.
2) That I never experienced before. Although, for me it seems all my
contacts are on SIM *and* in the addressbook, so maybe that's a problem that
I never encountered before :-) I should empty my SIM and try again, but I
don't feel like doing that. Also, it seems saving a contact from the
received-call list doesn't work as expected ...
3) I use qi for booting.
