First, nice to have an openmoko Freerunner in my hands (for a few weeks
now) trying out some things. Thing is, I wanted to test the latest
updates to work with the GPS and SD card.
After an "opkg upgrade" my phone reboots and stays in the openmoko
splash screen. Booting with power+aux and booting I get an "Bad magic
number" message. Booting with aux+power (NOR) I can't boot because
something is missing (sorry, my phone is working now and I forgot the
message, but let's say it didn;t boot :) ).
I flashed the FR with dfu-util to
"uImage-2.6.24+git20080424-om-gta02.bin" and it works again. Doing
another "opkg update" + "opkg upgrade" again restults in my phone
staying at the openmoko splash screen and I had to flash it again.
Is there another way of upgrading or is something wrong with the kernel
package at the moment? Should I be trying another FR image for the
Or am I doing something wrong?
Thnx in advance,
