Om 2009 is the third version of the Linux distribution developed by Openmoko.
If you don't have Moko11 as your GSM firmware yet, you should update it: See GSM/Flashing
You can add a bind-home directory to the first partition (must be ext2 or ext3 ) of your SD card. On the Om 2009 boot it will be mounted as /home/root. This way you can reflash your phone without losing anything in your home directory (Paroli contacts and settings, maps, etc)
Make sure there isn't a bind-home directory first
If this exists you are already using bind-home, otherwise keep following the directions below and reboot after this
mv /home/root /media/card/bind-home mkdir /home/root
