Re: FreeCalypso status

Hi  Nick

The uSD slot in my freerunner is broken, so I figure these 
instructions would be best for me:
http://www.matthews.pm/freerunner/leo2moko-p3.html 


Yes that's the only option. I run from the uSD,  but I don't see why that 
method wouldn't work forty you.

And am I correct in thinking that the latest revision of FreeCalypso 
is this: 
ftp://ftp.ifctf.org/pub/GSM/FreeCalypso/leo2moko-r1-bin.tar.bz2


I leave that for Michael to answer.

Am I correct in thinking that once flashed, the phone should work 
indistinguishably to the official firmware? SMS  voice both fully 
work?

Yes

It's the latest (and only so far) *practically usable* version.  The
full-source, gcc-built FreeCalypso firmware effort is trudging along
and got interesting progress (I got the TCS3.2 version of L1 running
on the Calypso), but it is still pretty far from usable: I'm just
beginning to integrate L23.

That has been David's experience indeed - unlike me, he uses his FR
running leo2moko with the end user hat on. :)  David, thanks for
testing and confirming the functionality of this fw.

 Do you still want calibration data? I can send it along if you like.

No real need, but you can send it along if you like.

 Finally, is there some way I can donate to you for this stuff?

Bitcoin donations are always welcome:

https://blockchain.info/address/159Yx6JRJ4oMLPTYrh1jW7fQ5D5tPHdnoM

Non-Bitcoiners can donate by snail-mailing a check or money order to
the address on my domain name registration (Michael Sokolov, PO Box
488, Oceanside, CA 92049-0488, USA), but please be aware that with
this method, a portion of the check/MO amount would have to be wasted
on check cashing fees, between 3% and 10% depending on what kind of
check it is - because of my illegal living status, I cannot have a
bank account in my own name, hence I can only cash checks by utilizing
the sleazy check cashing outfits.  (No bank account in my own name
also rules out Paypal.)

VLR,
SF
