    1. Hi, I tried the ROMSettings connect with Joiku, but it doesn’t work, it gave me ‘Not In Range’ error, any suggestion? I had changed Joiku channels to 11, I also set android channel to 11, no use. wpa_supplicant.conf owner is system, Group is wifi, with rwxrwxrwx permission, is Is there more I need to do?

    2. This kicks ass! Thanks for your time and effort. I had forgotten how rusty my improv. mobile scripting skills were since trading in my old palm pilots for blackberries a few years ago. All works well so far – market access without a problem and very quick install.

      Now if we can just get 2.2 with Flash will be well worth the effort of not spending $300 more for a new playbook!
