i have encountered nothing that is not working, and ive encountered a lot.

here's a brief list of things that definitely work for me:
the point of this is to illustrate that everything works, except the things that dont. if you havent seen anything that doesnt, dont worry.
01) phone/contacts/conversations
02) openvpn
03) gps/maps/drive/turn-by-turn-directions
04) ssh over wifi/usb/wifi-hotspot as root or user
05) vncserver {vnc-ing INTO the n9, not FROM the n9. havent found a vncclient yet}
06) wifi-hotspot {joikuspot. you have to run a terminal cmd first}
07) firefox {fennec v11~a1, no flash yet, but it could be coming}
08) camera {video, iso, white bal, flash}
09) tklock-both {power button unlocks lockscreen + homescreen}
10) things i compile in scratchbox
11) locally&remotely executable terminal commands to:
+customize launcher-buttons on home screen
+change profiles {silent/meeting/general}
+(un)lock lock/home screens {simulate power-btn short, long, and double press}

+Nokia N9 64GB Black 059J238 {malaysian}
+PR1.1
DFL61_HARMATTAN_20.2011.40-4_PR_LEGACY_005-OEM1-958_ARM.bin
+patched open kernel
zImage-2.6.32.39-dfl61-20113701

been using open mode+open kernel for about three days, the only problem I seem to be having is being re-prompted for passwords to most accounts on reboot, but I didn't use the device much before going open, so not sure if that is a general problem or not

I believe that's a long-standing issue:
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=80540
There's a number of workarounds discussed throughout that thread.
I hope to God it's fixed with PR1.2!

caveats / complaints / things-that-suck / needles-in-my-eye

these are things that im worried arent solvable, even with open mode. they all could be.

1) SOLVED big scary warning
the openmode disclaimer is ****ing awful, but its solvable!
-flash the firmware {leave the closed kernel}
-turn on dev-mode
-in terminal, 'devel-su'
-'disclaimer-cal remove View-openmode'
-without rebooting, flash the openmode kernel
-rm -rf /home/user/.aegis
-reboot again
note that this murders your rootfs {installed apps and all settings}, but does not require you to kill MyDocs or home, so your DCIM is safe

2) BORKED cannot downgrade firmware
i REALLY REALLY want to solve this problem. i think its worth exploring how to, e.g.: flash the very first version so that any arbitrary version can be installed. from what i can tell, the problem is 100% the flasher app. maybe theres another flasher app already? maybe some reverse engineering could be gotten underway to do so? this is not impossible to do, and theres nothing malicious about wanting to do it {e.g. to test previous versions}.
the sole purpose for stopping downgrades is to patch-up aegis holes, and the sole purpose for aegis to exist is so that businesses dont shy away from 'open platforms'. large corporations dont know how to do business in an environment where they cant abuse the endusers.

3) WORKAROUND ~/.profile is read by the thing that starts up the xserver-ish monstrosity, and you can BRICK YOUR PHONE AND LOSE YOUR EMMC {photos, convos, contacts, etc} if you do something stupid to it.
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=81813
workaround: change the /usr/share/applications/meego-terminal.desktop to do "-e bash" instead of calling .bashrc in .profile

4) WORKAROUND /root/.bashrc has lines that set PS1 overwritten in a stupid way
silly bug, no lasting damage, easy workaround, what the hell is doing it and why?
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=81794
workaround: set pstemp instead, then do PS1=$pstemp

5) SOLVED chroot!
im surprised this isnt up and working. at least one person has it on an n950.
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82114

6) SOLVED pidgin
libpurple and gtk+ are working, with vkbd support!
so where's ma pidgin. {im occasionally working on this one, but its a pain.}
pidgin works just fine for me, with a bluetooth keyboard.
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82057

7) SOLVED thunderbird, claws-mail, SOMETHING
my only requirement for email be that the whole msg {headers, body, and attachments} of all messages be fetched both on a schedule and by demand, and permanently stored offline.
i dont need my reader integrated with my fetcher.
i dont need my writer integrated with my reader.
fetch/read/write are very separate tasks for me that i only occasionally do at the same time.
-built-in email machine is actually quite nice, though you cant copy/paste in the gui, and searching sux {imo}. you can always just find/grep/xclipboard in ~/.qmf.
-chroot thunderbird works ok

8) SOLVED lock screen customization
you can add an icon by setting a gconf string. im led to believe you can also tweak style.
i want a count of my missed calls, texts, and emails-by-account, and maybe a smaller clock to save battery. i would also like battery percentage and stats
really cool, but imperfect, soln is to use operator logo in the wonderful way done here:
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=81798
another cool application of same idea:
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=81443

9) SOLVED making the power button {and vol buttons?} run arbitrary commands for short/long/double
i got the arbitrary commands thing working using a pyqt app without a display.
yay, flashlight toggling works
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82538

10) SOLVED full vnc control
i want to be able to simulate touch-screen drags, or at least control the main interface.
EDIT: netview doesnt have a CLI, so you need to be at the phone to start it. it also doesnt take normal x11vnc options, like -nopw for secure LANs[/COLOR]
EDIT: ok, cool! i got this working without the netview gui, using the bundled x11vnc in netview {doesnt work with one from dev repo}.

the netview app by nokia in store enables full vnc control. The framerate is a little slow but it works fine enough.

I can report that all of my account login problems have been solved with the firmware reflash.

My big concern now is PR1.2. We need to get the new kernel source ASAP.

That is not going to happend... Even factory need to do very major things.. (clean whole phone and retune whole phone, rewrite imei ++++). Very nice IF someone can do this and not clean whole phone .

interesting- do you happen to know the mechanism of action? i had been assuming that it was strictly a limitation built into the O.C. Flasher; i hadnt seen anything that suggests otherwise.

This is kinda beyond the scope of this thread...
But does anyone know of a similar GUI app to this, that was devised for Maemo5:
https://market.android.com/details?i...ger&hl=enWorks
If so, hopefully it can eventually be ported to Maemo 6x.
