No biggie, it is quite easy with the OS X flasher GUI :-)  I'll check QtMoko

On the subject of flashing, is there any detailed explanation of the
architecture of an image?  Are kernels and rootfs images mix-and-match?  I
have seen that some distros only have a rootfs, others have both.   Is there
a way to take an image of the current state of my phone before flashing so I
can keep settings, data, etc. when flashing back?

That's just enough info to find it, I'll check that tonight too. Since my
unit was bought last week (already buzz-fixed), I believe I have a non-zero
chance that the GSM firmware is moko11.

qtmoko should give you 100% working calls forsure. Good luck and
