I'm sorry if I'm asking a silly question. When I do "cat /proc/cpuinfo" 
I get "Revision: 24420360", so presumably I'm okay. Then again, while 
trying to figure out what field I was supposed to be looking at, I 
stumbled upon http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Neo_FreeRunner_Hardware. 
 From there, it seems that the user space gets that data from the 
kernel, which in turn gets it from the boot loader, which doesn't get it 
from anywhere at all hardware related. I've upgraded my boot loader with 
an image I downloaded from the Internet (so I could boot from ext2 
partitions on a microsd card). So now I have to wonder whether the fact 
that it says "24420360" actually means anything other than "I upgraded 
my u-boot"?

I have the debug board, which implicitly means I have the screw driver 
needed to open the device (already did once). I was more looking for 
something that says "this is the change you need to do in order to fix 
the buzz", and then just open the device and have a look whether that 
change is already in place.


This is somewhat academic, as I'm fairly certain that my phone is a V6
