Koolu is proud to announce availability of Google’s Android Platform source code for the Openmoko phone “FreeRunner”.

While Android was released as open source software in late October, a certain amount of work had to be done to get the code to work on other manufacturer’s phones. The FreeRunner, an open design of phone from Taiwan-based OpenMoko, needed certain changes to the Android code to have it work properly. The free software community, with the help of people all over the world, was able to change the source code to have it run on the FreeRunner.

The code will be located in a git repository at git.koolu.org and the instructions and other information will be located in a forum at forum.koolu.org
