I have good news to announce. We have again made progress
towards our goals.
The first step is that the Openmoko Beagle Hybrid  (which is our
experimental and development prototype of such a new Openmoko)
is now working on the BeagleBoard XM . We had to find a new
solution to solder the connectors (since the BB-XM already
has some). And to do some minor software changes to U-Boot. But
now it works.
Here you can find some photos of the assembly process:
We now have a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 with 3D Video behind
a Freerunner touch display!
And there is also good news for the GTA04 OMAP/UMTS upgrade
board. We have finalized the PCB layout and ordered (thanks to a
bigger donation) 10 sample boards and a SMD stencil. They will
arrive in 2-3 weeks. How it could look like is shown here (showing
a 2-layer mockup board and some of the core components):
