I was mistaken about this. Both SoaS (yes, Strawberry) and the XO-1 act identically: downloaded activities register immediately; *copied* activities (from a USB stick) require a restart to register.
As I stated previously, restarts (by whatever method) work fine on the XO-1. With SoaS Strawberry, restart from the (old) user menu worked fine; the CONTROL + ALT + BACKSPACE method crashes. I'd sure appreciate at least *one* SoaS option that works.

There should be no difference in this regard, can someone verify if this is happening? Also, when you say SoaS, you mean Strawberry, right?
