Latest firmware for PinePhone modem!

That's great news. If it works, don't fix it, right? The Pinephone finally works for me as a phone. From what's reported here, it seems like 01.002.01.002 has most, if not all, of the stability and performance gains. I just happened to flash 01.003.01.003 first and it's working for me.

I have a 128GB SD card with multi-boot on it and, not only is it a good size for storing my audio and video media, it's also a good place to store Bookworm (testing) system backup images so I have a recovery option, if Mobian development results in regressions in functionality. 

I set Bookworm on eMMC to be the default boot, but it's convenient to boot to multi-boot Mobian, which I've dedicated to backup and restore tasks, and run dd to make backups, because its terminal cli history always has the commands right up at the top of the history file (up / down arrows in terminal) and I don't have to type much on the screen keyboard.

With sleep mode working, I think I'll order a new LCD screen. (Thanks for your post about screen replacement.) Now with sleep mode usually enabled, I'm no longer cooking my phone 24/7 like I have for the last 10 months so maybe a new screen will last.
