This page is intended to summarize in one place the various images you can try out on your Openmoko Neo FreeRunner (GTA02) or 1973 (GTA01). 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|August Software Update) qtopia-based Image
  • The FSO (FreeSmartPhone.org) Image
  • Qtopia image from qtopia.net
  • The SHR (Stable Hybrid Release) Image

2007.2 GTK Image

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

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

ScaredyCat

Users may have heard of "ScaredyCat" images. These are usable images created by Andy Powell and are currently based on the 2007.02 software stack.


ASU (April|August 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 Neo 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

Qtopia image from qtopia.net

Qtopia.net images for the


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.

The SHR doesn't exist anywhere but in a few people's heads at the moment (2008-07-05). Hopefully, all the work in it will be integrated back into one of the other releases, and it will cease to exist. The point is to get us a release with stable calls & suspend/resume, plus access to all those other nifty apps we had on 2007.2 and the ASU.
