Hi Philip

You can pop up/close the keyboard at any time by (shortly) pressing the
Aux button.
In order to get the wifi working, you might have to run:
rmmod s3cmci
rmmod ar6000
modprobe s3cmci
modprobe ar6000

Thanks for your feedback

ps: http://trac.hackable1.org/trac/wiki/UserManual is minimal for now
but awaits for everybody's fillings.
