I dont know whether to upgrade to OS2008HE from OS2007HE on my 770. I was wondering if you more advanced users could help me make a decision. I would like to know which one is more stable but has the most features. I use my tablet mostly for internet browsing and as a remote for Media Center and PhoneLink.

Thanks, Avery

I opted for 2007HE because, just at the moment, it's the more robust choice. Maybe diablo-HE will become a reality and then I'd take that. I'm using Fanoush's high speed MMC kernel, his initfs and the OS in on half of a 1GB MMC card.

I heart 2008HE. I don't know which is quicker speed-wise, but just having the sexy interface and the ability to play with the latest files/programs wins for me. It does have its problems though, no sound is a big one, but it's pretty stable once you kill metalayer-crawler with fire.

Bunanson has listed some of the working programs here http://www.internettablettalk.com/fo...ad.php?t=20161 and I have to agree that Maemo Mapper is super speedy on 2008HE.

I have been using it on standard internal flash, so I will have to follow speculatrix and try it on mmc with the high speed kernel, as I also have a 1GB mmc.

I'm with Atarii, I like 2008HE. But since it is quite bad for media playing (you can hear sound with headphones, but the playback is not all that great), I have both OS2007HE and OS2008HE installed in a 2GB card, using Fanoush's kernel (I have OS2006 in the internal flash for charging , as it is the only one that detects when the battery is full, and I like that ;-)).

It's weird everybody report sound problem with 2008HE. It sounds just perfect on my N770. The only patch I applied was the fanoush SDHC kernel patch so nothing to do with sound.

BTW, to stay on topic, definitely 2008HE, especially since I have no sound problem ;-)

I tried the softvol trick in mplayer, but it did not seem to make a difference (between softvol=true and softvol=false). However, I installed ogg-support (0.7) before (instead of mogg), and it did seem to make a big difference in the volume!

Now the media playing is working decently (, so I'm thinking whether I'll get rid of OS2007HE to free up some space.

Where did you get the 0.7 version of this? I can only find version 0.5 on gronmayer.com

Edit: Found here: http://maemo.org/downloads/product/OS2008/ogg/
