This works with both Qtopia and the old GTK based OpenMoko distribution. It

This has been working for me for more than a month now. The only problem I've 
noticed is that either the GPS or GSM seems to sometimes go beserk. The main 
CPU is suspended but the phone is warm to the touch and the battery is 
emptied in a few hours.

So far I've only got this to work with Qtopia.

Since most of the development done for the FreeRunner seems to also benefit us 
GTA01 users, I'm pretty sure we'll get there in a few months. Also, since the 
main improvement over the previous version seems to be eyecandy, I don't feel 
like we're missing much by not having access to a pre-built 2008.8 image.
