Hi Joachim and others,
thanks to Joachim Ott's instructions, I managed to get a working
system on a spare SD-card, boot the phone and add extra debug
messages to the problematic rootfs.
I have found out that when Neo stops at the 40%, it is staying in
/etc/rcS.d/S40networking at the command:
echo -n "Configuring network interfaces... "
it never gets after the "ifup".
any idea what to try next?
