freerunner arrived

My Freerunner kit arrived in the mail today. I’m pretty excited.

I’ve been going through the wiki trying to get started setting up the phone. I don’t have a SIM card (we have Verizon). But at this point, all I’m worried about is getting the factory image updated to a more recent image. I managed to set up a USB connection between my laptop and the phone, sharing the internet connection. opkg, the package management system, fails with some missing signature errors. The wiki mentions there would be a problem, though it doesn’t offer much more to solve it. That leaves the second alternative of manually flashing the phone.

Seems also that I’m not the only one getting started as there is a guy on the community list who’s also getting his Freerunner flashed and all. I guess I’ll be riding in his coattails as well as reading around on the wiki; it seems everything is there, somewhere. More to come soon!
