MS4 and MS4.1 both had zhone when I tried them, but you have to pick the 
correct image as there were 3 types with varying levels of included packages:
* openmoko-fso-console-image - no X, just the bits needed to get the framework 
running without a GUI
* openmoko-fso-illume-image - minimal X and illume, but no zhone etc.
* openmoko-fso-image - X, illume, zhone and other apps

MS4.1 is probably a better choice as it fixed a few bugs in MS4.

The unstable feeds are most of the way to MS5 now, and probably don't provide 
a clean upgrade path from MS4 any more. Your best bet is to pick the right 
MS4.1 image above, or wait a few days for MS5. Another  option is to use the 
repository tree at:
This hasn't been updated for some time, so should still work with MS4.
