This page lists various images you can try out on your Openmoko supported smartphone and some #Other downloads.

See Distributions for a more descriptive comparison. Then see Development Branches Policy when you want to know where the really bleeding edge is.

Contents

Installation instructions

See Flashing the Neo FreeRunner for installation instructions. Neo 1973 users: Getting Started with your Neo1973. If you want to install a system to a microSD card, see Booting from SD.

The release directories can contain up to four files:

  • a Root FileSystem image. These are the files with rootfs in their name. They come both as a .jffs2 ready-to-flash image, and as a .tar.gz ready-to-cp tarball.
  • a Kernel image (files with uimage in their name).
  • a u-boot bootloader (file with u-boot in the name).
  • a splash image file.

Also, the archive directory contains two identical versions of most files, one having the date in the filename. For those convenience ?

One usually needs only to flash the phone with the root filesystem and the kernel image. The splash image is eyecandy. The u-Boot bootloader is a critical component, you don't want to install a new version of that systematically, but there have been improvements since the one released in shipping phones.

Om 2008.9 (ASU)

Neo FreeRunner images

There is no need to reflash if you have installed Om 2008.8 and used opkg update && opkg upgrade. Comment about naming scheme on the community mailinglist

The bleeding edge: Om "base / empty" images

The org.openmoko.dev branch does not have any applications preinstalled other than settings and installer, and it is unstable for now.

Images for testing are at: http://downloads.openmoko.org/daily/

To get packages from testing, use this /etc/opkg/testing.conf :

src/gz testing-all http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/testing/all
src/gz testing-arm http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/testing/armv4t
src/gz testing-neo http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/testing/neo1973
src/gz testing-gta02 http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/testing/om-gta02

unstable comes from the same branch, compiled with the AUTOREV flag. There are no images, but packages are at http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/unstable/

Reference: See "Repository and Images" announcement for details on other "Base image", "testing" and "unstable".

Once you have this base image, you can install the GTK+ telephony apps including gsmd, or Qtopia, or Mickey's framework. Check out the FDOM page for an idea of what to install.

Om 2007.2 images (GTK)

Main article: Om 2007.2


Openmoko discontinued support for this release.

Celtune offers different Images and a huge amount of packages (2007.2, pyneo, fso) for neo1973, freerunner and others. Celtune images can be found at http://rabenfrost.net/celtune/ .

Andy Powell maintains (or used to maintain ?) images based on the 2007.2 software stack for the gta01 and gta02. A. Powell's ScaredyCat images can be found at: http://buildhost.automated.it/OM2007.2/ .

FSO images (freesmartphone.org)

Main article: OpenmokoFramework


The file system will be in a jffs2 "summary" file. A file with the extension ".jffs2.summary" can be flashed to the FreeRunner just like an ordinary jffs2 file.
