Should have the option to auto connect or not...
esp. with diablo turbo...
anywho the last fella here who had problems did a apt-get dist-upgrade as he said..
Only use apt on Maemo if you know what you are doing.
Apt upgrading really isn't the prescribed way of doing on Maemo.
hell...what he was doing "WAS" upgrading to the latest cssu...why complicate the procedure with upgrading on top of that?

1- If a newmo (person new to maemo) wants to "cowboy" it and improvise on top of the steps by adding stuff ...good luck is all I can say...adding or subtracting from these steps will not get any help from me..
I spent a lot of time to make sure the process is laid out simply, exactly, precisely.

2- If someone knows exactly what they are doing and exactly the result of their action. Then they have done the process many times, they are well versed in maem-fu... and the purpose for them is experimentation....to come up with new stuff for us...godspeed....

3- If someone wants their device up and running properly..
Just follow the instructions..
They results are bulletproof as long as there is no deviation.
Mistype or omit ..then I suggest getting practice at certainty ...and do it over. No harm in that.

As far as anyone trying out the process...
I just did on one of my old n810's in December ...finally putting diablo turbo onto an sd for it....long overdue...
I count myself as "anyone else" as well as the creator and perpetrator of this walkthrough...
It's been long enough that I ...of course... forgot how to do most of what I wrote here...so had to take my own advice...
and it isn't the 1st time I had to follow my own walkthrough...
Works great for me...
That endsormeans guy...I give him 5 out of 5 stars...
He's some kind of wonderful...
like a cross between Jesus and a Unicorn...
a "Jesicorn" or Unijesus" ...one could say..
