SHR is one of the many distributions that currently work on the Openmoko phones. You can compare a distribution with an Operating System on normal computers. It gives the phone all the software needed for operating. For more information about the different flavors, see distributions. Template:SHR

Warum SHR existiert

Die Stable Hybrid Release (SHR) ist eine von der community entwickelte Distribution die auf dem OpenmokoFramework (FSO) basiert und einige Standardanwendungen umfasst. Es sind verschiedene grafische Toolkits verfügbar, zum Beispiel GTK und EFL. Angefangen hat SHR damit, die Openmoko2007.2/de GTK software mit dem neuen FSO zu kombinieren, aber die dinge haben sich geändern.


Warum keine reine FSO benutzen?

FSO (englisch) ist eine initiative von Mickey Lauer und seiner Crew um eine gute D-Bus Infrastruktur zu entwickeln die auf Neos und anderen Geräten läuft.

FSO ist bis jetzt die stabilste und benutzbarste release solange alles was du willst ein Telefon ist. (Ich meine *alles*. Es gibt blos einen dialer als demo applikation.)

FSO hat nicht den Anspruch selbst ein komplettes Image zu sein, es ist blos die Infrastruktur und eine Demo Applikation.

Andere Leute sollen ein Frontend auf FSO setzen. Und das ist was wir tun.

Installing SHR is very easy. I will explain how to install the testing version of SHR. It is stable enough for a daily use. Stable version will be available soon (Stable announcement), unstable (for the adventurous testers) is also available.

I suppose that you know how to use NeoTool

You need to download two files from here

- the kernel (uImage-om-gta02-latest.bin)

- the root files system (jffs2 file)

You can view the sources here.

Connecting your FreeRunner to your computer

For the next configuration steps, you will need to type some commands. It is much easear to type on a real keyboard than on a touch screen. So you need to connect your FR to you computer, and make a bridge to internet. Use this page

Setting local time

As any linux system, the UTC time is used by the system. First of all, adjust this time:

date -u -s 010220052009
Fri Jan  2 20:05:00 UTC 2009

Then, you need to "localise" your system. Search for the appropriate country with:

opkg list | grep tzdata

then install the one corresponding to your area. opkg install tzdata-europe

Then select your city (search the city availabled in /usr/share/zoneinfo/your-country)

You can fully localise your system by installing the glibc-binary-localedata correponding to your langage. Search the ones available with:

opkg list | grep glibc-binary-localedata

install with

opkg install glibc-binary-localedata-fr-fr

(example for France)

ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Paris /etc/localtime

Changing root password

SHR is shipped without root password (just press enter)

This is very dangerous if you connect using wifi, or USB. You need to activate the root password:

passwd

en type your selected password (2 times)

Customize the RingTone

You need to have a file containing the RingTone you want for your FR. You can find some at RingTone

Then transfer it to your FR (i.e on the SD card):

scp file root@192.168.0.202:/media/card/

Now you need to indicate that the FR must use this file for incoming calls. Modify /etc/freesmartphone/opreferences/conf/phone/default.yaml

Known Issues

Phone

GSM network is lost after one day of uptime: restart your FR once a day!

Address Book

SHR is not implementing a PIM (Personal Information Manager) yet. Work is in progress, but to included in SHR testing This has some consequences on daily use:

- only contacts on the SIM card are available

- it is not possible to import a Vcard file

- Incoming call only display phone number (not the name of the calling person)

- it is not possible to send message (SMS) using the name of the receiver. You need to remember his phone number

GPS

GPS is not activated at start up, and it is not possible to activated it using a graphical interface. You need to type:

cd /etc/init.d/
fso-gpsd start
