Basically we have to fix things in the following order:
1. make dfu-util work so that we can flash the rootfs from a Mac
1b. write a GUI tool that presents the list of available flash files
and allows to download, cache and (re)flash them
2. update AJZaurusUSB (http://www.dsitri.de/wiki.php?
page=AJZaurusUSB) so that the OpenMoko is recognized (and no Apple
CDC Ethernet driver intervenes)
This is basically done (but not tested because step 1 is missing).
A short description is here: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/
MacOS_X#USB or here http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?
3. find out how to configure ssh, SMB, Bluetooth etc. for more
4. find a better way to run OpenEmbedded natively on a Mac. I already
had started the MacOE project (http://www.dsitri.de/wiki.php?
page=MacOE) but did not yet succeed.
