I'll second both points. I really appreciate all of the work going in to SHR.
The current shr-u is definitely faster in many areas and has some great
I'm also finding it to be more unstable than the September version was.
Unfortunately, the unstableness I'm seeing is hard lockups - no flashing AUX
led and a long press on the power button does nothing. I have to remove the
battery to reboot. They're not repeatable because they seem mostly random.
A few of them do seem to be related to some sort of graphics update (i.e. I
press a button on the screen and then I can't do anything else, or I try to
switch applications and then can't do anything else). I'm probably having to
remove my battery 2 to 3 times a day.
Any suggestions on how to debug this enough to have something to file as a bug
Again, thanks for all of the hard work - it is much appreciated.
