[edit] Introduction

HTC-Dream is a android based phone. Android is running on top of a Linux kernel. So we have basically no work to do using this kernel to boot an Openmoko user space. This work is done. I booted an Openmoko user space. The way to do it on your own is described below. For questions ask leviathan and GNUtoo in irc://irc.freenode.net/#htc-linux

If leviathan doesn't answer, he might be smoking ATM or be working elsewhere. In this case, try to contact him on jabber, or leave him an offline message: leviathan@xmpp.ccczh.ch

If links are down, just try the overlay'n directory. The site is outdated very fast!

[edit] Bootloader

You need to install fastboot. In order to do this, you will have need to have "root" on the existing Android device or already have a developer version of the bootloader installed.

[edit] Using precompiled image

Download an kernel image from:

(I had to disable anonymous ftp because some people misused it to upload copyrighted movies and pr0n. Sry. -- leviathan)

[edit] Building new kernel

Use the kernel from the replicants. Fetch the kernel sourcecode from http://gitorious.org/replicant/gnulinuxkernel And configure it as you whish.

export HACK_DIR=`pwd`
git clone git://gitorious.org/htc-msm-2-6-32/leviathan-incoming.git
cd leviathan-incoming
git checkout --track -b msm-gnuconform orgigin/msm-gnuconform
git pull
wget http://ftp.o2s.ch/defconfig_OE3 -O .config
make CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/local/openmoko/arm/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ ARCH=arm
sudo make CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/local/openmoko/arm/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ ARCH=arm modules_install
sudo mv /lib/modules/2.6.32 /mnt/foo/lib/modules/

umount /mnt/foo

mv Newramdisk.cpio.gz newramdisk.cpio.gz
sudo cp Mkbootimg.bin /usr/bin/mkbootimg

[edit] For SD-card rootfs

mkbootimg --cmdline "console=tty0 no_console_suspend=1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootdelay=2 fbcon=rotate:1" \
--kernel $HACK_DIR/leviathan-incoming/arch/arm/boot/zImage \
--ramdisk ./newramdisk.cpio.gz -o openmoko-boot.img

  • Start into fastboot
  • execute
fastboot flash boot openmoko-boot.img
  • restart the phone
fastboot reboot

Introduction

NB., If you're looking for a currently developed distribution for the HTC Dream, you may also be interested in the SHR Project (Dream Install Guide).

HTC-Dream is a android based phone. Android is running on top of a Linux kernel. So we have basically no work to do using this kernel to boot an Openmoko user space. This work is done. I booted an Openmoko user space. The way to do it on your own is described below. For questions ask leviathan and GNUtoo in irc://irc.freenode.net/#htc-linux

If leviathan doesn't answer, he might be smoking ATM or be working elsewhere. In this case, try to contact him on jabber, or leave him an offline message: leviathan@xmpp.ccczh.ch

Setup the rootfs

Bootloader

You need to install fastboot. In order to do this, you will have need to have "root" on the existing Android device or already have a developer version of the bootloader installed.

Kernel

Using precompiled image

Download an kernel image from:

(I had to disable anonymous ftp because some people misused it to upload copyrighted movies and pr0n. Sry. -- leviathan)

Building new kernel

Use the kernel from the replicants. Fetch the kernel sourcecode from http://gitorious.org/replicant/gnulinuxkernel And configure it as you whish.

export HACK_DIR=`pwd`
git clone git://gitorious.org/htc-msm-2-6-32/leviathan-incoming.git
cd leviathan-incoming
git checkout --track -b msm-gnuconform orgigin/msm-gnuconform
git pull
wget http://ftp.o2s.ch/defconfig_OE3 -O .config
make CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/local/openmoko/arm/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ ARCH=arm
sudo make CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/local/openmoko/arm/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ ARCH=arm modules_install
sudo mv /lib/modules/2.6.32 /mnt/foo/lib/modules/
sync
umount /mnt/foo

Building boot.img

mkdir $HACK_DIR/mk_boot_img
cd $HACK_DIR/mk_boot_img
wget http://wiki.openmoko.org/images/9/92/Mkbootimg.bin
wget http://wiki.openmoko.org/images/f/f6/Newramdisk.cpio.gz
mv Newramdisk.cpio.gz newramdisk.cpio.gz
sudo cp Mkbootimg.bin /usr/bin/mkbootimg

For SD-card rootfs

mkbootimg --cmdline "console=tty0 no_console_suspend=1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootdelay=2 fbcon=rotate:1" \
--kernel $HACK_DIR/leviathan-incoming/arch/arm/boot/zImage \
--ramdisk ./newramdisk.cpio.gz -o openmoko-boot.img

For internal rootfs

mkbootimg --cmdline "console=tty0 no_console_suspend=1 root=/dev/mtdblock5 rootfstype=yaffs2 rootdelay=2 fbcon=rotate:1 rw" \
--kernel $HACK_DIR/leviathan-incoming/arch/arm/boot/zImage \
--ramdisk ./newramdisk.cpio.gz -o openmoko-boot.img

Flashing boot.img

  • Start into fastboot
  • execute
fastboot flash boot openmoko-boot.img
  • restart the phone
fastboot reboot

WLAN

Firmware

mkdir firmware
cd firmware
wget http://ftp.o2s.ch/pub/openmoko/htcdream/firmware-wl12xx/wl1251-fw.bin
