This page lists various images you can try out on your Openmoko supported smartphone and some other downloads. Note however, that some of these are works in progress and may not have even released any files yet. Nothing is guaranteed to work. Proceed at your own risk.
Unofficial users repositories can be found here
Distributions and installation
See Distributions for description and comparison of the images downloadable here.
In most cases you will download
- a Root FileSystem image and
- a Kernel image
to flash into your phone. The third available file is the u-Boot bootloader, probably you don't want to install a new version of that unless there are bug fixes that you really need.
If you want to install a system to a microSD card, see Booting from SD.
Understanding Om distribution releases
Om 2008.9 (ASU)
Om 2008.9 is an updated release of Om 2008.8. Flashing this image is equal to upgrading Om 2008.8 to a certain date by okpg. If you upgrade on any of the two systems, that ends up in exactly the same system .
- Main article: Om2008.9 Update
Neo FreeRunner images
Note, that this is a certain "point release" of Om 2008.8. Updated images under the 2008.8 section are newer, because those are updated builds of the same distribution.
For older releases of this distribution, see Old Openmoko Distribution Releases
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-i686 http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/testing/i686 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)
Openmoko discontinued support for this release. The host that used to distribute it has been taken offline at the end of August 2008.
