Back from the (wifi) dead

The importance of nandroid backups cannot be stressed enough.

Installed the 3G patch (early, impatient) and killed wifi by also installing the optional high memory kernel. The radio patch itself works amazingly, pushing the Nexus to slightly better than the G1 in overall terms. Still hit the blackspots where 2G and 3G are passing the buck, but that is exactly the same for my other radio devices.

Quick configuration change

I have re-partitioned my microSD to give 3.5GB total in the ext2 partition. At this stage, 2.1GB of that is used.

I always use a Linux box to play with the partitions and I am very careful about the order in which things are unmounted and unplugged. Two resizes so far and no data loss.
