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 distribution has the aim not only to be finger friendly, but also to give you a full featured desktop environment.

Features

  • a new Zhone theme
  • preinstalled applications (Iceweasel, Pidgin, TangoGPS, Wifi-Radar, EpdfView, Dates, Cellhunter)
  • it fits on the 256MB NAND flash

Installation

  • download latest release
  • flash the image and the kernel with NeoTool
  • optional: make use of the latest patch

Usage

Buttons

  • AUX (short press) shows the keyboard
  • Power (short press) suspends the Neo

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
