Linux and Android for T-Mobile Wing
Welcome to our project wiki. We aim to bring Linux and Google's Android operating systems to the T-Mobile Wing and HTC Herald / Atlas platforms.
Currently a minimal Linux distribution featuring the 2.6.25 kernel and debugging / development utilities operate on many Wing and Herald phones, along with a minimally functional Android installation. The system boots using the HaRet boot system, so no flashing is involved. The kernel is based on the work done by the linwizard project.
Current guides detail repartitioning an SD card to contain the Linux distribution, along with some swap space for some extra breathing room. (The Installation guide here is an in-work guide towards the next version of wing-linux. Use the INSTALL file within the current 0.1 release for how to install it for now.)
The latest release is 0.1. It requires a repartitioned SD card to operate (instructions included in the file). Get it here.
The 0.2 release is slated to include several new features:
- The ability to install and run without repartitioning (just copy the files on and go)
- Improved compatibility for many phones
Call for Developers
If you have a T-Mobile Wing, HTC Atlas, or HTC Herald and would like to help, we're looking for developers familiar with Linux programming and especially kernel development. While we do have a working kernel for some, a great many things, like GSM, wireless/bluetooth, and sound are not working yet. Shoot us a line if you're interested!
