There are no actions defined. If you press power for 2 seconds, dmesg should 
report this, if everything is ok.

LEDs should work.
Please check, if fso-gta02 package is installed. It depends on necessary 
packages with config files.

I think, you will need 2.6.39. SHR kernel is working here.

You have do define actions yourself in /etc/freesmartphone/oevents/rules.yaml

Try installing fso-gta02 and phonui-apps.
