ok, this morning had a lot of opkg updates (0000utc, 200802) after which
usb charging was back to normal. I then flashed uboot with todays daily
- charging via laptop/desktop is still 500ma.
Somethings improved - the software seems *much* snappier and I like the
red aux button to show when its actually alive vs suspended/dead
