Upgrading

Is it possible to upgrade from 2008.8 without flashing the device? Is there a proper upgrade path? --KB Jørgensen 07:59, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes, if you had upgraded on 17 sept, you would have om2008.9. If you now update a 2008.8, you will be ahead of 2008.9. You must see the updates as a fluent line (that om is trying to give a name) and openmoko picks every month a new point release out of it. Dolfje 09:45, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. That cleared things up alot. --KB Jørgensen 11:19, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Oddities after upgrading

After doing a flash to 2008.9 and installing illume-config, the carrier info no longer appears and I assume the low battery notification mentioned doesn't work (at least when I left my phone on for 5 hours last night the battery was down to 1 bar and wasn't red [not sure the actual level, I didn't think to check at the time]).

Is there a way to fix this? -- TechieM2

Default splash back?

I don't like new splash image in this update. How can I change it back? (forgot to backup) -- Mikhail

Recommended Packages?

Are there any additional packages after the flash that are recommended? There seem to be a class of packages that are intended to be installed within the 2008.9 distribution, and another class that aren't based on Qtopia. TangoGPS is a good example of an app that seems to install a lot of packages that don't seem to be in the spirit of 2008.9.
