I am quite pleased to announce that a lot of gentle negotiation has paid off and I would like to unveil The Open2x Project.
This project is reasonably significant for one reason right now.
It will make the following available via its SourceForge project over the next week to 10 days.
- Full GPL Linux Kernel source (2.4.25) for the MMSP2 platform (GP2X is based on this)
- Full GPL Das U-Boot (1.0.0) bootloader source for the GP2X
The projects aim is to use this as a basis to produce community driven open source operating solutions for GP2X with extra features, performance, stability etc.
Anybody with experience of ARM Linux kernel or low-level hacking is very welcome to get involved in the development effort. There are contact details on the site.
A little more information can be found on the following sites.
