Return to Finding hardware revision.

Personal tools


For all methods, you will need to login via USB Networking or otherwise SSH into your FreeRunner, and find the hardware revision using one of the following methods:


root@om-gta02:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo
Hardware	: GTA02
Revision	: 0350

The line that says "Revision" is the one you want. The "03" means it's a FreeRunner, and the "05" indicates the hardware revision, in this case revision 05.

For A6 and A7 checking

Try cat /sys/devices/platform/neo1973-version.0/pcb, on my A6 it gives 0x001, on A7 it'd be 0x101.

Caution: may be wrong for hardware versions earlier than 05, or for u-boot earlier than about June, 2008.

Using libgsmd-tool

# # Get revision
revision: "HW: GTA02BV5, GSM:


If your are running fso, you can use mickeyterm and the at+cgmr command. Or you can use mdbus, like this:

root@om-gta01:~# mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device org.freesmartphone.GSM.Device.GetInfo

The result will be something like this:

/org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device: GetInfo ->  dbus.Dictionary({dbus.String(u'imei'): dbus.String(u'nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn',
 variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'model'): 
dbus.String(u'Neo1973 GTA01 Embedded GSM Modem', variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'revision'):
dbus.String(u'HW: GTA01Bv4, GSM: gsm_ac_gp_fd_pu_em_cph_ds_vc_cal35_ri_36_amd8_ts0-Moko1', variant_level=1), 
dbus.String(u'manufacturer'): dbus.String(u'FIC/OpenMoko', variant_level=1)}, signature=dbus.Signature('sv'))

Where 'nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn' is you IMEI.
