- fso-gt02 is installed
- LED still does not work
- phoneui-apps: i don't intend to sue the device as phone
- rules: is there a howtod/description? as i said i don't have a backup of  
my old installation where i tweaked rules.yaml and don't after 1.5 years  
not recall what i did there
- dmesg: what does a message in dmesg have to do with fso? or do you mean,  
that indicates that kernel wise everything is in place (drivers)?

apparently i set DEBUG in the wrong set of config files  
(/etc/freesmartphone/conf/default/ is _not_ a sensible name for a  
configuration not being used) -- but now i see at least messages about  
state changes in /var/log/fsodeviced.log and signs of activity in
