Contents

Installation

Preparation

GSM firmware

If you don't have Moko11 as your GSM firmware yet, you should update it: See GSM/Flashing

bind-home

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

ls /media/card/bind-home

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

Boot loader

Also update to the latest versions of qi or uboot bootloaders The latest boot loader files are available at http://downloads.openmoko.org/distro/testing/

Om 2009 Installation on Flash

Installing Om 2009 is simple as flashing an image. Well, that's what you need to do..

  1. Download! You need the correct fso-paroli-image and uImage.bin files for your device. There are also rootfs tarballs for installing onto an SD card. Freerunner or Neo1973
  2. Flash! Detailed instructions for Freerunner and Neo1973.
  3. Start! The image will boot into fullscreen Paroli and all of the features listed above will be available. To learn more about Paroli, see Paroli

Boot AND REBOOT! The first time it boots there some problems might occur but they're gone after the second boot.

Installation on uSD

Make sure you use ext2 or ext3 as your file system on uSD. Then check this here: Paroli-developer-setup#Upgrading_Paroli_on_a_uSD_card_installation_of_OM2009 or Booting_from_SD#Prepare_the_SD_card.
