Testing 5

to change from fullscreen paroli, in paroli, it's settings -> display and
toggle profile to paroli-serenity

Restored old root dir via ssh, tar

rm -rf .e (as recommended by angus ainslie)

opkgs installed:
 udev-static-devices    for faster boot (but not installed as i can't find it)
 woosh     (browser)
 yaouh (from opkg.org)

follow instructions at http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Paroli-background to
put my photo in as background

Later note: 14.7.2009: did an "opgk upgrade" which segfaulted; did "dd
if=/dev/zero of=/media/card/swapfile bs=1k count=10000" then "mkswap
/meda/card/swapfile" then "swapon /media/card/swapfile", which allowed opkg
upgrade to run to completion.

rebooted, gsm service won't start up, gsm0170muxd keeps erroring.
restarted muxd from tty, got error "Modem does not respond to AT commands,
trying close mux mode".  the page at
http://trac.freesmartphone.org/ticket/367 suggests these can be caused by
out-of-date bootloader, so upgraded qi to the testing-5 qi image, and lo!
the problem is gone.

Testing 4

Same proc as testing-3 below to change from fullscreen paroli to paroli-illume

Restored old root dir via ssh, tar

Use AUX during a call to change vol to 40%, this seems to be persistent

opkgs installed:
omnewrotate (in /etc/default/omnewrotate.conf set START="no" to prevent
	autostart as it kept demolishing the window system)
 (see also various files in
 /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-0/0-0073/pcf50633-regltr.7/neo1973-pm-gps.0 )

Testing 3

angus ainslie says 

"To change from fullscreen paroli you must
first edit /etc/paroli/paroli.cfg and set settings to True. You can then
get the settings menu up by holding the AUX button. In the settings menu
you can change the profile."

(done, restarted X with /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm restart)

cp /etc/freesmartphone/oevents/paroli_rules.yaml to
/etc/freesmartphone/oevents/rules.yaml to enable power-button shutdown -
after reboot, hold button 5s then release initiates shutdown within 5-10s.

time setting taken automagically from network after call made

GPRS just automagically works after:
1) hold down AUX inside paroli, after activating
settings menu as above

2) put my network (the thing that's
passed to the modem with at+cgdcont) in the "APN" field inside the GPRS
setup option

3) restart phone

4) again inside GPRS setup, press "status" button and wait for it to
connect.  def route etc. are all acquired properly.  bring down by
pressing "status" button again.

on angus' advice, installed unstable paroli from
(accepted updates of certain files), mine is version gitr23

ring tone is awful, see http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/FSO_ringtones for
advice on changing

opkgs installed:

retried with testing image 3 (08-may-2009)

ringtones are much improved!

Testing 2

tried with MAY 09 testing image 2

got from http://downloads.openmoko.org/distro/testing/NeoFreerunner/

installed qi + uImage + fso-paroli
