Help with warez
We have a mechanism whereby any contributor can upload large files to us without having to request an account or make any other special arrangements with us, i.e., you can remain completely anonymous if you like. If you have some TI warez which you think might be helpful to us, we kindly ask that you please consider uploading them to us via this portal.
The following items are what we are currently most interested in:
The source for the Calypso DSP ROM code, or at least a COFF file with symbols corresponding to the DSP ROM version 3606 that is cast into the Calypso silicon we are working with, to enable us to debug issues deep in the DSP and to understand what the DSP patches that came with our TCS211-20070608 version of L1 actually do.
An original source for the tpudrv12 RF driver module (
tpudrv12.c): we currently make do with a reconstructed source (reconstructed from disassembly), but a genuine source would be much better for understanding, and would serve as a much better starting point for potential development of new TPU drivers for other RF types such as Silabs Aero family.
tpudrv10.cdriver for TI's older Clara RF, to allow us to run our own firmware builds on our historical D-Sample board.
Schematics or any other hardware documentation for TI's D-Sample and/or E-Sample development boards. We have a real TI-made D-Sample kit and a PADS PCB file for the E-Sample (hence we could build the latter board ourselves), but no schematics for either.
A copy of the D-Sample hardware test code that supposedly includes a
D-Sample TETRISgame and this cute LCD picture.
A source for GPF (any version) with the Nucleus OS adaptation layer included in source form.
Please also note that all of our current FreeCalypso work is very strictly limited in scope to just TI platforms for GSM/2G and not any others. If someone is interested in any kind of newer-than-2G technologies and is thinking about contributing in that direction, please read our IOP page first.
Help with monetary donations
I (Mother Mychaela) have spent tens of thousands of dollars on this FreeCalypso family of projects over the years; any community donations to offset this project cost will be greatly appreciated.
The most efficient way to donate is by Bitcoin; my Bitcoin address for donations is 159Yx6JRJ4oMLPTYrh1jW7fQ5D5tPHdnoM. I can also accept donations via conventional banking systems or Paypal, but doing so would require special arrangements — please email me.
