Welcome to the Openmoko™ public Wiki
frontside

Openmoko™ is an Open Source project under GPL and LGPL license. The aim of Openmoko is to build the world's first free mobile platform which runs a full X server and can therefore run most X applications. You can install any OpenMoko software over the whole range of supported phones, and if you upgrade your phone, you won't lose that software. Bugs fixed on any phone are fixed on all.

The Neo 1973 (GTA01) from FIC is the first of many phones that Openmoko may be used on. You can go to Openmoko Online Shop to get the sales informaiton. Neo FreeRunner (GTA02) the new generation Openmoko mobile phone is not yet available - press here to get more hardware information. Otherwise, scroll down this page for info on the development status , or you can add your nickname to those interested buying the Neo FreeRunner at Buying Interest List.

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

To the novice, can start by use introduction page , photos, videos and Openmoko Official Index Page, to take the overview of Openmoko and wiki. Moreover, the usual Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and mailing list pages might be helpful. Developers may find the change log an important resource.

WARNING: The Openmoko GUI applications are not suitable for end users yet. They are still in beta. Do not expect to always and reliably make and receive calls from the Openmoko GUI. Thanks to the openness of the FIC Neo1973 hardware, there is also an alternative to the Openmoko GUI: Qtopia 4.3.x is released under GPL and is at the edge of being usable for phone use.


Latest status
  • The latest Qtopia snapshot can now be successfully used to make and receive calls, to send and receive SMS and use Contacts for both. However, if you do not enable suspend, one battery will only last 3-5 hours, but in suspend, incoming calls do not wake up Qtopia! See Qtopia on Neo 1973 for instructions.
  • The latest build can make and receive calls most of the time. Power management (suspend, standby time) are still experiencing problems. Reports on the new snapshots built daily (will break sometimes) are here
