    hi there, thanks for the great instruction. i managed to install everything in the right way and all the process went smoothly. still, when using android i have troubles with the keyboard. concerning the virtual one on the screen, it is really small and prevent me to see the single keys. the physical one is fine till i have to use the letters and numbers (using the Fn key), but then when it comes to punctuation, special caracters and directional arrows, everything is screwed up, is there any whay i can fix this issue? an upgrade to the latest android release could help? if yes, how can i update it, is there any instruction around or that you can give me? thanks for your help.

  15. Arjun says:

    There’s a patch available for the keyboard issue. Check it out here:

    Android Gingerbread 2.3 for the N900 does not support phone calls. You can check if there’s a new build available.
