Contents

Installation

Download the tarball or images and install them as usual. The complete SD-card installation process is detailed on the website

Development versions are found here.

Usage

Buttons

  • short press on the AUX button brings up the keyboard
  • short press on the Power button kill the application in the foreground
  • long presses bring up menus after half a second
  • the aux menu lets you search for BT keyboard and switch USB modes

SSH

There is a root password by default : "root".

In the beta release, /root/.ssh/authorized_keys contains an entry for m@one. This is no intended backdoor, please replace it with your own SSH public key, or delete the file.

Networking

Default networking is configured (FR 192.168.0.202, Gateway 192.168.0.200). You can modify this.

Issues

  • The GSM can't be powered off with no SIM card inserted, he will persist on registering.
  • If you enter your right SIM PIN and Hackable:1 say it's incorrect, press Cancel for the second PIN request and press the Antenna Button (right top) and select Power-Up GSM Antenna.
  • Don't upgrade (apt-get upgrade), it will break the configuration (no uImage.bin installed, gps and gsm not working, ...)
