Okay, I'll do that. However, I recall the driver was working fine with
the old 4.0 build I had installed on the sdcard before flashing the new
4.2 images. I'll let you know. I also have a newer openmoko battery as
well as a Nokia one. By the way, how does one go about using a Nokia
compatible battery on the gta04?
