Ok, I don't know. As of reported to work I would do it as described.  
But I also wait about my reseller
(pulster) if this is a warranty. Then I wouldn't do the work by my  
self :-)

If not, I would like to see some pictures from that. Are there any

The insulation I think is better than not doing it :-)

I indeed had some reregistering and saw that by the symbol :-)

I am look forward to update to a newer version of whatever. There I  
only need something:
Working phone (calls/sms), working GPS (with navit), working WLAN (at  
least with scripts).
A plus would be bluetooth with headset for car radio and optionally  
working hands free.

Has the Om2009 such a feature set?
