Great. Sorry about that.

This one: https://github.com/maemo-leste/ofono-d4/tree/motmdm-serdev-ngsm
Or in particular, this one (w/ debian dir)

I've been using Tony's simply because I had it built already and he's
also working on some things. Maybe we can try to get a 'merged' version
going sometime again. Let me know if you think we should package yours
instead. Or both, somehow. But ideally we do a few more development
cycles and settle on one ofono.

Yes. We're sorting out some issues now (Tony found a problem with uart1
not idling well with modem), but that should be fixed & built somewhere
today. Really, you should see 60-70mW with modem online, the screen
closed/locked (use the power button twice), and the service "ntp"
stopped. (/etc/init.d/ntp stop)

I've been using my Lab PSU to measure the power drawn by the Droid 4
without battery at 4.2V (from boot, opening the device once to stop ntp
and put it in lock mode):


And it idles quite well, even for 24+ hours it will look like this (this
is not 24hours, but shows a bit more idle state):

No idea yet, but will take a look today. Definitely would explain why
the audio start is also never stored / loaded upon boot.
