It cannot be flashed currently, only starts by preloading kernel and initrd over USB to RAM.

But as we already got multiboot for n9, it should be pretty easy to start from it from internal flash memory.

But as with SailfishOS/FirefoxOS/Android you will have crippled OS support(because of old kernel) or lack of bluetooth/telephony/bme[battery charging], etc (on new kernel).

So this OS will be as usable as other 3rd party OSes ported to n9, unless somebody will backport old drivers to new kernel (so we are again back to the point kernel-update-project for n9, which never succeed and there were 2 big attemps).

I really wish the best for this project and love n9(it's still my daily driver), but after looking past, I'm a bit sceptical...

@danpio: Aren't you BeOS fan that uploaded some image for me maaany years ago?

BTW, I would love to have white n9 :-/

I believe they are using the work going on with filippz kernel update project which would be 3.5

Hi,

For starting:

I have installed PR1.3 and ubiboot small.
sdb1: MyDocs (partitionned)
sdb2: Harmattan rootfs (untouched)
sdb3: when i install ubiboot make this partition
sdb4: extended partition to make 2 others.
sdb5: pmOS rootfs
sdb6: initramfs for pmOS

Attached picture is my N9 partitions.

I have a problem now: impossible to have the ubiboot start menu. Check my logs.
I have in error:
Boot menu script not found. when ubiboot run by default Harmattan.
I think partition MyDocs is damaged i tried to format it but no succes. How to repair this partition? for exemple when i try to copy some files from MyDocs to my HDD it says: Error splicing file: Input/output error.
Each time i split MyDocs with extended partition and ext3/4 partition i have this problem.

I would like to keep Harmattan OS cause i can't charge my device if there is no OS inside N9. pmOS doesn't support usb charge.

Any help?

filippz has it working with ubiboot with a serial console.

No. They are using mainline plus a few patches. postmarketOS on N9 is currently configured to build 4.15.rc6, the config file says 4.15-rc5, but when I try to build either manually with the patches, it brings up the interactive config which leads me to believe there is a config mismatch. filippz has it working on 4.16 but hasn't published the patches yet.

I've been trying to boot 4.14 stable with ubiboot on the N950 for Maemo Leste based on the patches used to bring it up on the Droid 4 (display patches are the same). It doesn't help that I don't have a serial cable but I just discovered CONFIG_USB_G_SERIAL so I'm going to see if I can get a serial console that way.

When partitions and pmOS on device are done you need to run kexec command with ubiboot telnet and it will run pmOS.
I have the kexec command.
Can you help me to charge my device when harmattan can't boot?

Your logfile seems to me a word document that I cannot open with libreoffice, it says it's corrupted.
Why not use plain ascii format?
