I think there's already been a thread recently about this; please check
the archives.

It's neither SHR or QtMoko, but I have begun to write some code to
integrate OsmocomBB with my own telephony implementation (called
"DeforaOS Phone") for the Openmoko Freerunner. It is very, very early
work and therefore far from being functional yet, but for the record,
you can find it here:,v&revision=1.2

Previous versions of the DeforaOS environment are already packaged for
the hackable:1 distribution, and released within the "dse" series. For
more information on how to install and test this:
