Welcome to the OpenMoko™ public Wiki
frontside

OpenMoko™ is an Open Source project to create the world's first free mobile phone operating system which runs a full X server and can therefore run most X applications.

The OpenMoko project is a community that anyone can join, to help design their ideal phone.

You can install any OpenMoko software over the whole range of supported phones, and if you upgrade your phone, you don't lose that software. Bugs fixed on any phone are fixed on all.

The Neo1973 from FIC is the first of possibly many phones that OpenMoko may be used on. Buy it at Openmoko Online Shop. You may wish to see the Shipment 1 FAQ and Phase 1 Software Testing

Please join us in collaborating on the OpenMoko project through any of the project resources including this OpenMoko wiki. Please see the wiki editing help page for information on making contributions to this wiki. A core team of developers funded by FIC, Inc. leads the project.

An introduction page is available, with photos and videos. Moreover, the usual Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page might be helpful. Developers may find the change log an important resource.

WARNING: The software is not suitable for end users yet. It is of alpha-quality, and much functionality which expected to be present in a phone is not ready for an end-user yet. That means that even the most critical phone uses like making/receiving calls and SMS, using contacts and a calendar, are not there yet or are not finished yet. If you order a Neo1973, DO NOT expect to be able to use it as an everyday phone until December 2007 at the soonest, and probably later.


Latest status
  • The Openmoko snapshot from 20071113, when employing a few steps, can be used to make and receive calls, but this has seen very little testing and is in early alpha-testing state! Please also note that there is NO graphical frontend for sending/receiving of SMS included. After installing additional software however, it should be possible to send SMS.
  • With some tweaks, it is now also also possible to use the Qtopia to make and receive calls, use contacts, and other basic tasks. But Qtopia has some issues with suspend, so it may last only 3-5 hours without external power or replacing the battery. See Qtopia on Neo 1973 for details.
