cayco: NOTE: it appears that after each reboot of the OpenMoko you get a new interface on the Mac (this is under investigation). - I am experiencing the same behaviour.

Comments on Mac Software

First, thanks for all the hard work, it got my Neo happy and booting.

Some comments:

  • some indication when the "refresh" button is pushed that it's doing something. (Checking, downloading, etc)
  • what the status means. (F seems to mean "flashed". C means Downloaded?)
  • maybe some sanity checking? (Making sure the rootfs and kernel and uBoot aren't incompatible?)

I too have the ever-changing Ethernet interface issue. Historybuff 19:46, 4 August 2007 (CEST)
