I just bought a 2005 edition of the 770, flashed it to the 2006 OS level, and 
used the http://maemo.org/maemowiki/HowDoiBecomeRoot page to become root on 
my device.

Here are my issues:

1). According to the wiki on maemo.org, "Applications listed on these page are 
Maemo 1.1 compatible and usable for Internet tablet OS Edition 2005 installed 
devices. These applications WILL NOT WORK on devices with Internet Tablet 
2006 Edition. For those, check out ApplicationCatalog2006". However, none of 
the applications from the 2006 catalog want to install. All of the 2005 
versions install with no problems. What gives?

2). The 2006 OS release claims to include Gtalk and Jabber, but I dont see any 
new applications relating to the OS upgrade in the GUI menus. Is there 
something else I have to do to enable these apps?

Has the upgrade failed in some way? The "About product" tab tells me I'm 
running version 5.2006.13-7.
