My OpenMoko is bricked - a result of *my* deliberate
actions. Neither unexpected (the GSM stack is designed *not* to be
hackable) nor the result of any failing on the part of the hardware

That the manufacturer has made it relatively easy to hack the hardware -
and the software on the phone is the reason I bought it. I continue to
be happy with the purchase. It's not the first device I've bricked *with
a soldering iron*, it won't be the last.

The bricking of that particular phone, and its tenuous relationship to
your "troubles" and "complaints" is only that it comes from the same
phone manufacturer.


Kind regards
