Anyone interested, meego with call support has been released but is still LIMITED TO FEATURES and is jus for playing around with the preview.

READ FULL INSTRUCTIONS AND UNDERSTAND BEFORE PROCEEDING. YOU'RE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK
*although its not really risky at all.. but i've met some really dumb ppl in my last tutorial which is a shame on humanity*

Instructions

1) http://repo.meego.com/MeeGo/releases...t-armv7l-n900/
download the 500mb image file *.bz2 File* and 1.5mb kernel file *3-n900 *

2) rename the downloaded image to meego and extract it using winrar to My documents.

3) rename "meego" in my documents to meego.img
and rename the kernel file to kernel simply kernel *remove the .-n900 part too*

4) https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download
download this and connect your N900 to pc via mass storage or use a cardreader *preferred* and use the win32-imagewriter to "Write" it to your microSD card

*IT IS VERY IMPORTAND TO REMEMBER TO EXTRACT IT TO MICROSD AND NOT THE BUILTIN OR YOU WILL CORRUPT YOUR eMMC*

5) http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/maemo-d...-downloads.php
download maemo flasher
install it
example you have installed the flasher in C:\flasher-3.5 and downloaded the kernel in C:\downloads
then restart ur pc, press f8 before you see the windows logo, choose "disble driver signature enforcement" then open start menu, search/run "cmd"

6) In cmd, type "C:\flasher-3.5\flasher-3.5 -l -b -k C:\downloads\kernel

then it will ask u to connect a device,
turn off the n900, wait for 1 min, then press the "U" key on the n900's keyboard and THEN connect the usb cable WHILE PRESSING THE 'U' KEY.
then you'll see the kernel being flashed. after its done, remove the cable and wait for some time for Meego to boot up.

*I CANT MAKE THIS ANY MORE NOOB FRIENDLY*

BTW the moment you switch off your cellphone, the meego kernel will go and you'll be back to maemo.
IF YOU WANT TO USE MEEGO AGAIN, FOLLOW THE 6TH STEP AGAIN

BEFORE PERFORMING THE 6TH STEP, MAKE SURE THAT THE BACK COVER IS ON. *Thanks to Stskeeps

the flashing went good but when my n900 started to boot it stuck on waiting for root device (and a particion ). this did you try it? maybe my mem card an 8gb class 4 toshiba is the culprit
