hackable:1

Hackable:1 is one of the many distributions that currently work on the Openmoko phones. You can compare a distribution with an Operating System on normal computers. It gives the phone all the software needed for operating. For more information about the different flavors, see distributions.

hackable:1 is a community distribution for hackable devices like the Openmoko Freerunner. It is based on Debian GNU/Linux, and while originally integrating a GNOME mobile platform its infrastructure assists in the generation of flashing-ready software images for embedded devices.

The latest releases are based on the DeforaOS Smartphone Environment, providing both the user interface (based on Gtk+) and the underlying GSM backend. They are labeled as "dse", of which the dse2 release was shipped on July 14th 2011.

Previously, hackable:1 has implemented the GNOME Mobile platform, as declined in the original OM2007.2 software stack. This series of releases was labeled as "rev", of which the last stable version is rev5 (codename « Chuck »), released on December 22nd 2009.

The user and developer website is found at http://trac.hackable1.org/.
