Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I can't boot Neo with charger?
A: 1. You can't boot GTA02 without a spare battery. You should boot Neo with spare battery and attach your charger, then you can boot into neo.
2. Once your phone is booted, remove the spare battery. Freerunner will remain running,
3. Insert dead battery and let it charge.
Q:Uable to flash FreeRunner after booting either into NAND or NOR.

I can ssh into the phone via USB per the wiki instructions, but dfu-util does not find the phone.

Following page contain very usaful information:
For general GPS introduction, you could find it at GTA02 GPS
How do I get the wlan working?
See GTA02 WLAN
Can it play VGA video?
No, it can do about 20 fps QVGA with software, and something beetween QVGA and VGA playing MPEG-4 using hardware (at resonable fps). Scaling is also done with GPU hardware.
How to change the background picture of the root window?
Copy whatyouwant.png over /usr/share/pixmaps/wallpaper.png, best results may come up with pictures that have width=480 and height=640. I think that the X-server must be restarted, at least it will show up after the next boot.
Does it support Java?
There is a port of Jalimo for Openmoko.
