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-
    sudo dd if=meego-handset-armv7l-n900acceptance- of=/dev/<your usb stick> # sdb in my case. Check it carefully with dmesg
  • Flash the kernel:
    sudo ./flasherRn -k meego-handset-armv7l-n900acceptance- -fR
