Hi Neil,

I'm glad you're interested. The Replicant 4.2 system isn't ready for
daily use quite yet, i.e. modem RIL/Wifi/Bluetooth are non-working.
Right now it is just meant for testing purposes, so battery shouldn't
be too much of a problem. But if you want to avoid this bug in any
case and have a spare SD card, you can test Alexandre's image, which
is based on the Goldelico system and provides those other fixes.
