Well i didnt really know what i was doing, and had to upgrade the harder way
using VirtualBox to run Windows to run KIES the samsung firmware upgrade
software on my phone.

It didnt go well. I didnt think I had 'bricked it', but spent 1/2 an hour
trying to work out how to get it back on. Instead I found yet another post,
half way down) but with much more full info. Although I didnt do some
of the bits they said to do with running VB as root as using regedit, I
still somehow managed to get my phone to then continue its firmware upgrade
... and it worked !! phew !

So the upshot - I'm now running Android linux ie 2.2 and its a lot
faster ...

See you tomorrow at the meeting
