Once a whiner

I have just flashed fso-image-om-gta02.jffs2 (20090108). It took me 
several tries until it finally flashed.

I got several dfu errors (110, 84 and plenty 71). After a couple switch 
off/on it finally worked.

Unfortunately I can't get the phone app to work. I get always Zhone 
stopped running unexpectedly.

BTW, FSO makes the phone look more computer like, than om2008 versions. 
I'm not sure that's what I expect from a phone. om2008.12 doesn't seem 
bad to me except that the keyboard makes it useless (I can't properly 
input a contact, delete is a joke, guessing words is total bullocks). 
Sorry to be harsh on the developers, but even after reading wiki/lists I 
couldn't avoid the disappointment; it's 80% there, but the last 20% 
truly are critical to me.
