[maemo-developers] Continuous reboot problem with the N770 hacker edition

Hi Markku,

I have no idea how I can replace the binary when the N770 is rebooting itself 
before the desktop is up :-( Is that possible?

If not, that translates for me, that I have to reinstall the N770. Are there 
any plans to update the N770 hacker edition image in near future to fix bugs 
like this? If yes, I would probably wait for a few days and test the updated 
image (and would be happy to pick up the other improvements;-)
