I'm sorry, but I don't really understand.

If this is of interest to any of you, my phone wasn't usable with
recent SHR-T. With SHR-U, I get to be able to have in- and outbound
calls at least most of the time, after rebooting the phone for up to
about half an hour until I get asked for the PIN. Eg. yesterday I was
unable to make calls for quite a while, because the dialer kept
crashing. After some time, the problem disappeared.

I have other quibbles with the phone as well that I'd like to see
resolved before I'd call something "stable", though.

If a commercial phone had the same error conditions, however, I'd
returned it long ago.

Other than that, I appreciate your work quite a bit, as it seems to be
the only free, open and at least somewhat stds compliant distro so far
that makes my phone almost usable (and which kicks Android out of the
race from my POV).

If you are interested, I'll assemble a list of problems from my limited
"user experience".

Kind regards,
