I recommend using the latest version of qi.  I had to do this to get the sd
card to work after my buzz fix.  I used the sd card method to upgrade my
gsm. (note, you gotta wait a long time for it to work, patience with the gsm

I personally use the latest image version of SHR unstable, I think it's by
far the most reliable and usable.  In the latest image opkg is a bit buggy
(I have to use opkg-cl instead) and manually reinstall all the packages,
though I forget the command to do that (it was on the wiki I think)

Let me know if that helps.
