Finding hardware revision

From Openmoko

Jump to: navigation, search


For all methods, you will need to login via USB Networking or otherwise SSH into your FreeRunner, and find the hardware revision using one of the following methods:


root@om-gta02:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo
Hardware	: GTA02
Revision	: xxxx0350

The line that says "Revision" is the one you want. The "03" means it's a FreeRunner, and the "50" (not "05") indicates the hardware revision, in this case revision 05. "xxxx" is "2442".

For A6 and A7 checking

Try cat /sys/devices/platform/neo1973-version.0/pcb, on my A6 it gives 0x001, on A7 it'd be 0x101.

Caution: may be wrong for hardware versions earlier than 05, or for u-boot earlier than about June, 2008.

Using libgsmd-tool

# # Get revision
revision: "HW: GTA02BV5, GSM:


If your are running fso, you can use mickeyterm and the at+cgmr command. Or you can use mdbus, like this:

root@om-gta01:~# mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device org.freesmartphone.GSM.Device.GetInfo

The result will be something like this:

/org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device: GetInfo ->  dbus.Dictionary({dbus.String(u'imei'): dbus.String(u'nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn',
 variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'model'): 
dbus.String(u'Neo1973 GTA01 Embedded GSM Modem', variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'revision'):
dbus.String(u'HW: GTA01Bv4, GSM: gsm_ac_gp_fd_pu_em_cph_ds_vc_cal35_ri_36_amd8_ts0-Moko1', variant_level=1), 
dbus.String(u'manufacturer'): dbus.String(u'FIC/OpenMoko', variant_level=1)}, signature=dbus.Signature('sv'))

Where 'nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn' is you IMEI.
