Thanks so much for the summarization of the all the development. Just found this device in my girlfriend's stash. Says she used to use it for a while long while back. At last I have an old device to play with! And, oh God! I love the GB look so much. The stupid play services update screws up everything. I guess I'll live with F-droid on this.

Cheers to dev!
