Main screen

fyp is a Debian for Freerunner based distribution which uses LXDE and Zhone on top. It is a FreeYourPhone.de community project.

Status: first beta image is released

Contents

Concept

The main concept is the use of LXDE and Zhone which is embedded in the background and the whole is based on Debian/FSO as a subsystem. This will allow the user to use the basic functions of the phone in a fingerfriendly way, but also gives the opportunity to take the pen and go surfing the web or do some messaging.

Features

  • a new Zhone theme
  • preinstalled applications (Iceweasel, Pidgin, TangoGPS, Wicd)
  • it fits on the 256MB NAND flash

Installation

Usage

Buttons

  • AUX (short press) shows the keyboard
  • Power (short press) pops up the shutdown/suspend menu

Recommendations

  • use the recommended Kernel
  • make and use a swapfile on your µSD (warning: this may destroy the µSD card after uncertain time)
  • save the TangoGPS map files on the µSD as there is little space left on the NAND
