It's not possible to find the applications in application manager with
red pill mode too.

Yes I'll do it... again. An i hope this time I'll be able to get a
version which i can backup as an basic system.

It's costs some time to reflash, istall bootmenu, reflash kernel (48Mhz
support), arrange all the applications in startmenu / personalmenu /
install voip-account / im-accounts / ... / install all the third party
applications and so on. I know I could reuse a lot the stuff stored in
the home directory. But which stuff? I'll have to look. All in all it's
*not* a *short time* I need to set up the tablet again and again and its
very frustrating that in diablo tot the answer to some strange problems
is only flashing the tablet again. (It's the second time in 2 month)

However, the bug in modest is fixed and so I'm looking forward to a new,
better and more stable installation :-)

Thanks for your tips, ciao Uwe
