that's just transmit power, though, isn't it? Wouldn't affect detection of networks, I think?

apt-get update && apt-get -s upgrade

then pick the apps you want to update.

Re: N800 + OS2008 + MMC boot (this worked for me)

you need to add a new pkg repository: http://repository.maemo.org, I believe.

If you don't know quite how to do that, shout and I'll add more detail.

Re: OMWeather Update available

thanks Vlad,



that's most interesting; when I visit (uncustomised) weather.com, it shows me temps in Fahrenheit, so I assumed that was how OMW did it, too.

Re: N800 - Setting the Hardware Clock??

here's how:

/mnt/initfs/usr/bin/retutime --rtc-from-system


you can use:

/mnt/initfs/usr/bin/retutime --get-time

to check the current RTC clock time, too.
