ok, now that i am in a normal pc, i can write faster and easier.
i just upgraded my microsd card to a 16GB class 10, imaged my working 2.3 directly to it and expanded my FAT32 to the full extent.
it does boot a little faster and is a little more responsive.
i came across what you are saying about it wont boot with tasselhofs image, and it only happened with kingston microsd cards,
no idea why but 3 out of 5 flashes dont work and i needed to wipe the microsd, and then image it again until it boots ok.
i did an "stock 2.3 pre-rooted, with full market support, phone apps disabled and lcd density to 160 4gb microsd image"
its about 600 mb size but i dont have a way of publishing it for other to download an use.
what i would really like is to extend the data partition and the cache partition to have more room to install apps into
the internal storage, util now i havent got any success, if i change any of the first three partitions it just doesnt boot.
other mods i did today is to solder a ethernet wire ( just 1 ) to the wifi module's antena, got much much much better
, and the speakers wires i opened a hole into the plastic cover and re-routed them away from the touchscreen
and the battery, that took care of the riples sometimes apeared when pressing the screen.
did you solve the touch issue? i think its the very little yellow cable, try re-pluging it.
i'll keep trying anyways.
