A first release of the OS 2007 / 770 hacker edition (http://www.notacloud.com/blog/?p=26) is now available for download at http://maemo.org/downloads/os2007_hacker_edition.php.

Similarly to official IT OS releases, the download is offered to product owners only.
You will need to enter your Nokia 770 product identification number to download.

But this is not a official release. It’s not a end-user ready release. 
It’s a tool to allow developers to continue working on the 770, moving on to the OS 2007 / Bora software platform, bridging the gap between 770 and N800.
It’s less than alpha. No Q.A. was done on it and who knows what it might do.
It should not brick your device but then again, we can’t be totally sure of that either.
I’m running it on my 770 and so far it’s doing fine :-).

Multimedia is still quite broken, but there’s still hope.

Have a look at Markku’s notes (http://maemo.org/maemowiki/Os2007On770) if you are interested in the gory details.
Markku is updating these notes as he continues to work on this.
Help is appreciated. The wiki page is open to contributions.
Additions and corrections are welcome, including suggestions for addressing the remaining issues.

Problem reports specific to this release are welcome as well and should go to the Garage project (https://garage.maemo.org/projects/os2007on770/).
Not to the Maemo bugzilla and definitely not to any Nokia support. There is no official support for this.

Finally, patches are most welcome, preferably attached to the Garage project's tracker.

Best regards,
