i live in halle (sachsen-anhalt) in the eastern part of germany. started using the gta02 in august 2008.

evaluated almost every version that was available since that.

currently running (as of 2009-01-01):

shr-lite-image-om-gta02.jffs2 from http://shr.bearstech.com/shr-unstable/images/om-gta02/ (24-Dec-2008; 01:36; 61M)

my experience:

  1. caller's voice very low (phone can hardly be used outside)
  2. gps is NOT working with tangogps but usable with agpsui
  3. sms-sender is given by phonenumber only, content of contactlist is not used

since my provider is o2 germany, i started using homezoneapplet 0.2, but there was an error in the how-to "homezone_readme.txt":

it says
from console on your freerunner (not ssh)
~# enlightenment-remote -module-load hz_fso
~# enlightenment-remote -module-enable hz_fso

but the correct syntax is:
~# enlightenment_remote -module-load hz_fso and
~# enlightenment_remote -module-enable hz_fso


i do have the following questions though:

  1. are my entered contacts stored on the SIM or in the phone? Om 2008.X stores by default on the phone, but the app gives you the opportunity to copy to SIM.
  2. how do i get tangogps recognizing the gps chip?
  3. how do i get tangogps using OSM-maps? i have a 200 mb bin-file downloaded.
  4. how do i fdisk my mmcbkl0. the old kernel seems to use the old partition table? when i print the infos in fdisk, the settings are okay. i have a 512 mb sd card.
  5. how do i get wlan to work? i was never able to connect to a wlan, regardless of encrytion (open, wep, wpa, wpa2). the graphical frontends as Mofi seem to hang after trying to connect.
  6. how to use bluetooth? in the used SHR isn't even the settings-entry anymore.
