Solution for recurring WSOD:
With the 2+4+2 qi, WSOD seems to happen more often. And curiously
enough, removing power (as in pulling the battery out), doesn't help. It
is then guaranteed to reboot into WSOD. Strange that the phone is
capable of keeping this state over poweroff - do qi and uboot write
state into flash?
The solution is to boot into NOR flash, and then select "Poweroff" from
the menu. After that, I get a normal reboot without the WSOD. Graphics
indeed seems a bit faster with this qi. :-) I hope the WSOD problems can
be fixed in the kernel and/or the xserver. It happens without this qi
too - perhaps not as often.
