Right, i could have thought of that on my own... The card i actually
installed QTmoko at has been the card which has been delivered with the
phone (a 512 MB Transcend Card). The one i bought yesterday has been a 2 GB
Transcend card. Both of them made Problems.

Earlier this year i bought a camcorder. With it i bought an 8 GB SDHC Card.
My Camera stopped recording occassionally, but pretended it would record
further. The device hung, didnt react on any key input. Now guess which
brand it had ... Right, Transcend. 
Now i'm having a Kingston 8 GB SDHC card in it, and it works flawlessly...

Guess i'm off to the shop tomorrow, buying sone SanDisk card, as you said it
works for you. Thanks for the hint :)
