This project provides a PCB extension board and software to combine a Beagle Board with a Freerunner compatible display and case.

The goal is to provide a demonstrator and experimentation platform how a future modern state-of the art Openmoko device with ARM-Cortex A8 and UMTS could be (neglecting miniaturization). This allows to develop software and new user interfaces. When packing the board into a Freerunner case, one can provide sound (microphone, earset, speaker) and vibracall.

[edit] What it is good for

  • experimenting with touchscreen and new user interfaces on Beagleboard
  • learn how the OMAP3530/OMAP4430 design works
  • make it a mobile application development platform by adding a battery pack and a UMTS usb stick
  • investigate how an Openmoko with UMTS and OMAP3530/OMAP4430 feels (not from haptics but screen operation and UMTS speed)
  • porting SHR, QtMoko, Android, etc. to ARM-Cortex A8/A9, NEON

[edit] User space file systems

Initial tests have shown that it is quite easy to port/configure Freerunner GUI distributions to run on this hardware/kernel. Therefore we encourage to port

  • Android: e.g. rowboat
  • Angstrom
  • QtMoko
  • SHR
  • etc.

[edit] Binaries

locate binaries for MLO (first phase boot loader), U-Boot, boot scripts and splash screens, Kernel, Angstrom or Lenny Demo Image, patches (config.tgz) and modules (modules.tgz) from http://download.goldelico.com/ombeagle/trunk

Please note that you have to copy them in a specially formatted SD card. Look into the makesd script for an example (WARNING: adapt to your system or you may destroy your hard disk).
