Booting is now very slow (maybe due to something else such as increasing RAM) but I do not get any errors when using NetHopper to visit a very simple web page.  Clicking on a link on that page yields Error -61001. Clicking on the Network icon yields: Sorry a problem occured (-48807).  So, it's a bit of a mixed bag.

There is now a pre-compiled Einstein for iOS (Cydia/Big Boss) for jailbroken devices  so I will try that with an iPad one and see how that compares.
