Having tried the initial 2008 release that came with the phone, upgraded
to 2008.12 and then changed to SHR, I'd advise giving the latest
iteration of SHR-testing a try. I've found it to be fairly stable and
usable, although not everything is totally ironed out. I can make and
receive phone calls reliably, wifi works (although the GUI app for
connecting does not). GPS is reported to work, although I haven't tried

last SHR left wifi on all the time, which was a huge drain.
I think you mentioned using the phone as a music player - I hear that
the sound reproduction is not the greatest from the moko, that there's
no bass because of a hardware issue. Its probably possible to do some
compensation for this with software, but from what I understand the
GTA02 will never be a high fidelity sound source like an IPod.
The other issue I have with the phone is the lack of volume in the
earpiece in SHR. I can converse fine at home, but in noisy environments
its a problem. There's no GUI volume adjust, and changing the levels in
the config files can result in echo for whoever you're talking with.
Still, its better for the current SHR-testing release than for the
