unfortunately not in my case. It's a "hit-and-miss" deal. "Made-up"
statistics on my phone looks more like 80% of the time it'll boot and
have an unresponsive home screen and then after hitting Aux button and
getting to any app subsequent invocations of Aux or attempts to go to
"home" have a very high chance of hitting that nasty dial screen (with
no "back" button BTW).

thanks. I am will try to keep that in mind... so far it just booted
"fine" but I don't trust it for long ;)

done that and am getting:

Could not load
errorString() "The shared library was not found."

careful snooping about reveals that there is one driver and it's "neo":

root at neo:/root# ls /opt/qtmoko/plugins/phonevendors

is that the intended behaviour or am I missing something "critical" ?
