[maemo-users] Updates in red-pill mode

Hello Jonathan,

Why then should there be patches to some of the OS 2006 files? Do you mean that these patches could simply be experimental even though they have a version later than the ones installed in the 770?

Does anybody at Nokia releases patches to essential OS 2006 system files which can be updated under red-pill mode?

I don't think Red Pill mode is advised for general use or system updates.
It's really more of a backdoor.  I've used it to get Python to install in
the past as it seems to get past the missing library error though I'm not
sure that's so much of a good thing either.
