Thanks for your feedback - I've (finally) installed SHR testing now.
Looks quite nice, and was easy to reflash :).
I've only tested it for half a day (and managed to crash/hardlock the
thing several times already :/, but hey, maybe the best Freerunner
software I've seen wrt look and feel).

I managed to get Mofi working to connect to my wlan (WPA-PSK+AES).
But, after suspend/resume, I'm not sure however how to get online
again (over wlan). Maybe a know issue? (It seems I'm not able to
enable wlan again in the settings)

As for mplayer - are there any known to work mplayer frontends (or any
other *player frontends) for SHR? I managed to get pythm work, but am
not sure how to make it load files over the LAN.

As a sidenote; I am not able to boot the device when USB is connected.
Is this a know "bug"? Are there any known workarounds?
