Re: Poll: N900 fans will you buy a N9 or N950 (if u could)?

Nah, done being a Nokia test subject. Loved the N900 and Maemo ... but the devices are far to expensive to keep experimenting on one device tree's. I may pick a MeeGo device up in the future if it...

Re: Nokia's MeeGo device will be called N950, will be out this year!

More or less done with buying Nokia experiments. Love my N900 and will keep it till it dies, but when it does I will move on. Nokia phone maybe. but one running Wp7 or Android [IF it ever happens].

Re: Windows Phone 7 on N900??

Of the OS choices, WM7 wouldn't be that bad to me as an alternative. I am sure it can be done, the Xda-developers have been making these things happen for years. Sure in time given the opportunity...

Re: How can i ask my n900 to format my memory card to ext3 ? (xterminal)

Just a note, you will need to edit some things to get the card to auto mount and ext3 is harder on flash devices like sd cards than ext2.

Presently have mine partitioned for ext2 and nitdroid.

Re: Make n900 smooth, is there even more ?

Patient's young jedi :)

OC isn't always a good thing, in moderation it can be. As crash said knock it back a bit and see what happens. At 1.1k mhz your flogging the bugger to death.
