Latest Images

This page is intended to summarize in one place the various images you can try out on your OpenMoko FreeRunner or Neo 1973. 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.

Currently, the images in development include:

  • The 2007.2 GTK Image that ships on the Freerunner
  • The ASU (April Software Update) qtopia-based Image
  • The FSO (FreeSmartPhone.org) Image
  • The SHR (Stable Hybrid Release) Image

A nice summary of these various stacks on Michael Lauer's blog: GTK, ASU, FSO? TMTLA!

2007.2 GTK Image

The latest release should reside here: http://buildhost.openmoko.org/releases/Freerunner/

Note that the recommended set is not always the latest, but is the most stable, reliable, and functional.

Several videos of this stack by Youtube user freeyourphone and video review by BVB Tech


ASU (April Software Update) qtopia-based Image

There has not been a recommended release of the ASU yet. You may wish to review the ASU_Feature_Plan or some screenshots

  • You can download the latest daily builds here:
    • For FreeRunner http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/freerunner/
      • Look for files of the form: openmoko-qtopia-x11-image-om-gta02.tar.gz
      • and: Openmoko-openmoko-qtopia-x11-image-glibc-ipk-P1-Snapshot-YYYYMMDD-om-gta02.rootfs.tar.gz
    • For Neo 1973 the link is http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/neo1973/
      • Look for files of the form: openmoko-qtopia-x11-image-om-gta01.tar.gz
      • and: Openmoko-openmoko-qtopia-x11-image-glibc-ipk-P1-Snapshot-YYYYMMDD-om-gta01.rootfs.tar.gz

FSO (FreeSmartPhone.org) Image

Milestone 1 is here: http://downloads.openmoko.org/framework/milestone1/

Video of FSO Milestone 1

Browse the source: http://trac.freesmartphone.org:8000/trac-example/browser

I think these are FSO screenshots but I'm not positive.

Learn more at its wiki page: OpenmokoFramework


SHR (Stable Hybrid Release) Image

The Stable Hybrid Release (SHR) is intended to be a combination of the FSO, some of the 2007.2 GTK software, and the ASU that provides all of the functionality of the 2007.2 software, but with the stability of the FSO and the new GUI toolkits provided by the ASU. It will probably be based on an ASU build, with the FSO software and GTK end-user apps added.
