I've been working on the 3D printable case [0] for the GTA04 (and GTA01
+ GTA02) in the last weeks/months. I'm almost done with the first full
and usable version. It was pressented at the FOSDEM as well and a lot of
people liked it.

I've also fixed a bug in Iliwi (SHR's WiFi application), which prevented
it from connecting to WPA2 networks. Now you can easily connect your
GTA04 to your network through a GUI and use Firefox or Eve (both in
SHR's feeds) to browse the web – this is already working quite well
(except the power usage of the WiFi chip).

I've also written an easy step-by-step tutorial for installing and
setting up SHR on your GTA04 [1].

Now, that I'll have some more time soon, I'll start working on SHR/FSO
again, where I'll help with integrating some of the workarrounds for the
GTA04 modem into FSO with the aim of using my GTA04 with SHR/FSO as a
daily phone.

A lot of work is already done there. It can send and receive calls and
SMS, has a working (not perfect) audio routing etc. but there is some
testing and bug fixing needed.

Furthermore, I'll keep the SHR kernel [2] synchronized with Neil's
3.2-gta04 branch, which is working pretty nice already, as Radek stated.
