    Another tutorial!
    Meego:This guide is based on N900, but will work for all other omap devices with slight tweaks.

    1: Download Meego: http://wiki.meego.com/n900 :

    1.5: Take your UNFORMATTED SDcard (higher the class, the better).

    2: Place it into your computer (Linux or osX is best) and do this:

    3: [Linux Commands] sudo dd bs=4096 if=<raw_image> of=/dev/sdX affraid (AHHH! Looks weird! What is it! KILL IT!)

    I'll break it down a little:
    Sudo = Super User (The Boss!)
    4096 = 4GB SD Card. 1GB = 1024. I
    f you have an 8GB it won't be hard to work it out.
    <raw_image> is where you write the file name (remove the <>).
    /dev/sdX is the SD card. It will not be X (unless you have lots of devices).

    The easiest way to see what device the SD is, open gparted and have a look.

    If you have limited hdd space use: bzcat <raw_image>.bz2 | sudo dd bs=4096 of=/dev/sdX

    Meego is now extracted and 2 partitions have been created and it will now boot! You can't get simpler than that!

    Now to get the OS to run on N900:xTerm:

    sudo apt-get install u-boot

    Restart your phone with the keyboard open (slide up).

    Meego Type: run mmcboot

    Maemo Type: run noloboot

    cheers Go Team! bounce
