Some details here by a Finnish space journalist: http://tiedetuubi.fi/avaruus/komeettalaske...en-saatu-yhteys

Interesting bits:
- the radio contact lasted for 10 seconds at 3:17 EET (1:17 UTC) last night
- 51 packets were received by Philae mission control in Cologne

An update from the above source: http://tiedetuubi.fi/NODE/2147 .

Main points:
- ESA press officer Pål Hvistendahl confirms Rosetta received something
- No useful data received, but new attempts will be made when Rosetta is in Philae's view
- on the night of Dec 21/22 a signal was received
- telemetry packets were received but they did not contain useful information
- signals on this frequency should be only from Philae
- Philae will only transmit after it has succesfully received a packet from Rosetta

Here is an article (in French) regarding attempts to communicate with Philae.
Basically they say that Philae's temperature will still be ok until January 15th but that they'll continue listening until end of January.
They also confirm receiving 2 bips decembre 21-22 probably from Philae.

Latest update

Spin wheel to be switched on:

QUOTE
"At best, the spacecraft might shake dust from its solar panels and better align itself with the Sun," explains Philae technical manager Koen Geurts at DLR’s lander control centre.


No contact from Philae since 9 July; December event determined to have been something else:

QUOTE
In the night of 21-22 December, 2015, the receiver on Rosetta was triggered, but analysis showed that this was not a transmission from the lander.

Koen Guerts says in the Twitter video update that OSIRIS made an image series of the landing site to look out for a dust cloud, which might be caused by a movement of Philae.
But still no signals from Philae directly.
