fMMS 1.0.0 aka “time to sleep i think…”

Finally! 1.0.0! Working it’s way to -testing as you read this! Link for QA:

There’s a new thread at for fMMS 1.0.0 and later;

Everything you might need should be available in the above link, however I plan to follow up with a few posts going through the application in more detail.

Thanks for reading, testing and commenting!

Also, a big thank you to those of you who have donated!

awesome work! very impressive that u managed to add a feature like mms when it apparantly was too complicated for the main dev team.

maybe the only little feature missing now is midi support for mms. maybe it can be done with a opl softsynth from scummvm, or timidity midi softsynth… but it sounds like excessive work. most people dont use that polyphonic stuff anyway

thanks for one of the greatest and most important contributions to maemo ever! i will donate when i get a new job

Great work!
Using fmms (0.9.13) in havoc mode with the carrier Telmore (uses the TDC network and settings) in Denmark.
Works like a charm.

Guys like you are the reason why Open Source/Linux and therefore the N900 is so great.

It’s taken some time (not too long though :) ) and now it out running free. I’ve seen the improvements over time and applaud you. Well done :)

You’re my hero. I’ve been wanting MMS for months.

I got it set up in just a few minutes of googling around, although the default settings for advanced APN did leave me unable connect to my t-mobile USA GPRS internet until I renamed the APN back to the correct one.

I’d really like to see this ship with the n900 out of the box, so I can suggest non-tech friends this great phone.
