Hrabosh: I pressed the power button (a have v31 on the NAND memory, thus
not able to use /boot/append because Qi is not reading UBI FS .. right?)
and saw kernel messages scrolling down the screen- simmilar to what I
can see when my Linux computer is booting.

USB device (ethernet mode) works fine. If i switch the phone to USB host
mode (by running the script in dev tools), message in kernel log

[131.660000] s3c2410: changing USB to host
[131.900000] hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2

- last line is repeated cca 10 times.

Ethernet mode is then not working (unless I run "USB device mode" from
dev tools), but FR is charging the battery if plugged to the
computer/charger. Devices, connected to FR's USB port, are not working
and seem not to be powered at all.

Hrabosh: It works! Thanks! But media player seems not to be able to play
music fluently when phone is in use (reading SMS, using Arora... ) -
QMplayer is playing fluently no matter what you do with the phone.

Hrabosh: There was such option in some player I had in SHR distribution.
You could choose whether to play using spekares or  BT headset. I'll try
to google something more ...

Hrabosh: OK, I'll let you know.
