Maemo Leste

Welcome to the Maemo Leste website; Maemo Leste continues the legacy of Maemo. We aim to provide a free Maemo experience on mobile phones and tablets like the Nokia N900, Motorola Droid 4, Allwinner Tablets and more.

Feel free to join us on #maemo-leste and also join our mailing list if you're interested.

Maemo Leste is based on Devuan Ascii (Debian Stretch) and all the "supported" devices ship with recent Linux (mainline-based) kernels. We are also already working towards supporting Devuan Beowulf (Debian Buster) as well.

The project is not usable as a daily driver for your device, Maemo Leste is currently in development phase and we are actively searching for developers. For some devices, we have development images available - such as the Nokia N900; for an impression see Screenshots.

So far we have set up devuan/debian repositories for our packages, with builds for armel, armhf, amd64, aarch64. We have FOSS replacements for some closed maemo packages (and we have no closed packages in use), further building on the Maemo community efforts to replace all closed bits by open software.

Installation guides are provided per device. For open tasks/issues, please see the bugtracker:

For more information, check out our initial blog post as well as the following monthly updates:

There is also an OpenFest 2018 presentation about Maemo Leste (The slides are also available).

Software status is (partially) documented here:

A proper overview of the current (Maemo) software state will be provided soon.

Here is an incomplete list of support (to varying degrees) devices:
