Meanwhile a developer replied to my question how to make changes permanent. Should be solved by a single command, will try it later.
#mobilenixos uses a simplified profile management system, compared to #nixos. From what I know, to change the phone's configuration, users are to 1) Compile the "toplevel" mobilenixos expression on the host PC (after setting up either a cross-compiler or a remote aarch builder) 2) nix-copy-closure the new expression over SSH to a mobile device 3) Add the new profile to a list of profiles using `nix-env` on the device.
New profiles may be activated on the fly, old profiles remain in the recovery menu.
