Thanks for testing.

Can you please share how is wifi sensitivity for you? I can connect only when i 
am very close to the AP.

It's not implemented yet for GTA04...

Nice to hear, i think i will try to raise a volume for default states though..

For me bluetooth is not working with 3.2 kernel. This is what i get:

root at neo:~# rfkill list
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
1: Bluetooth: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no

        TX bytes:39 acl:0 sco:0 commands:9 errors:0

root at neo:~# hciconfig hci0 up; sleep 2

Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)

and there is following error in dmesg repeated:

14573.206573] Bluetooth: hci0 command tx timeout

With 2.6.32 it works good. I guess it has to do something with USB power 
saving patches. I can remember it somehow worked on early 3.2 kernels.

The web api on both has changed, so we have to update the apps to make them 
working again...

Known bug, but no time to fix it yet.

Nice to hear.

I bough 16GB class 10 SDHC card yesterday and i can boot in 30s. I have same 
40s for NAND. Maybe UBIFS can even improve it. Anyways we are now faster then 
Android and iPhone ;-)
