Mac OS X Recipe 1: Install MacPorts

Install MacPorts

See http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/macports/wiki/InstallingMacPorts

Install X11 before Xcode Tools; that way the X11 SDK will be automatically selected when installing Xcode Tools

Install all the GCC variants when installing Xcode Tools

Customize > Cross Development > all

Verify shell environment

Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app

$ cat ~/.profile
    # Your previous .profile (if any) is saved as .profile.mpsaved
    # Setting the path for MacPorts.
    export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
    export DISPLAY=:0.0

Verify gcc & make

Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app

$ gcc_select --list
    Available compiler versions:
    3.3		3.3-fast	4.0
$ which gcc make
    /usr/bin/gcc

$ sed -i.bak '/bin_PROGRAMS =/ s/dfu-util_static.*$//g' src/Makefile

Patch to work around NULL dev->config structures on OS X (Bug #672)

Either get the patch content out of Bug #672, or use one I created: http://www.snmoore.net/openmoko/patches/dfu-util-osx_null_config.patch

Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app

$ cd /Volumes/OE/workspace/tools/dfu-util

Mac OS X Recipe 3: Use dfu-util to flash the firmware

WARNING: this works ok for me and my Neo, but try this at your own risk

Note that I found it was usually necessary to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable each time I ran dfu-util, sometimes waiting a few seconds

Get the Latest Openmoko Firmware

The two images listed here are just examples; pick appropriate ones, see Flashing_openmoko

Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app

$ mkdir -p /Volumes/OE/workspace/images

Boot the Neo1973 Into uBoot Mode

Hold the Alt button whilst pressing the Power button

Verify the DFU Interface

Disconnect & reconnect the USB cable

Mac OS X Recipe 3: Use dfu-util to flash the firmware

WARNING: this works ok for me and my Neo, but try this at your own risk

Note that I found it was usually necessary to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable each time I ran dfu-util, sometimes waiting a few seconds

Get the Latest Openmoko Firmware

The two images listed here are just examples; pick appropriate ones, see Flashing_openmoko

Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app

$ mkdir -p /Volumes/OE/workspace/images
$ cd /Volumes/OE/workspace/images
$ wget http://buildhost.openmoko.org/tmp/deploy/images/uImage-2.6.21.6-moko11-r1_0_0_2388_0-fic-gta01.bin
$ wget http://buildhost.openmoko.org/tmp/deploy/images/openmoko-devel-image-fic-gta01-20070803091138.rootfs.jffs2
