MeeGo running on my N900
Yesterday I got the MeeGo running on my N900 and for my surprise I could make a phone call with it.
Well, it is not stable yet. It is slow and sometimes the phone call doesn’t work. When I receive one call it shows a blinking phone picture but it doesn’t really ring and it is not possible to answer it yet.
So, for now I will continue using my Maemo but with a dual boot trying to help get it running properly.
How to install it
- Get the N900 flasher
- Get Meego rootfs and kernel:
- Prepare the SD Card:
bunzip meego-handset-armv7l-n900acceptance-126.96.36.199.20100924.4-mmcblk0p.raw.bz2 sudo dd if=meego-handset-armv7l-n900acceptance-188.8.131.52.20100924.4-mmcblk0p.raw of=/dev/<your usb stick> # sdb in my case. Check it carefully with dmesg
- Flash the kernel:
sudo ./flasherRn -k meego-handset-armv7l-n900acceptance-184.108.40.206.20100924.4-vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-10.1-n900 -fR
