The main issue with osmocomBB is that it requires a GNU/Linux host computer to run. While the layer1 runs on the modem, the layer3 currently requires a GNU/Linux computer to run on. Even on a smartphone this isn't great as you cannot keep the application processor suspended anymore, else you would loose calls. I guess that it would have taken less work to make OsmocomBB usable as a feature phone or smartphone modem firmware. I tried to convince the main person behind FreeCalypso to do exactly that, without success. Given that devices supported by Replicant: - Don't have a free software bootloader - Don't have free software WiFi firmware - Don't have mainline Linux and bootloader support It is currently more urgent in my TODO list than finishing the port of OsmocomBB to Nuttx.
