I'd recommend you give qtmoko a try. I used to run SHR, but have
found qtmoko more reliable. It still occasionally screws up (failing
to unsuspend [though this looks like it's fixed in the new version],
and once failing to make outgoing calls), but in general it's a
pretty good experience. Plus it's actually maintained.
