The Wild Ducks Project is about making an open Symbian phone based on off the shelf hardware. It is something you can do yourself, in your home or office for a reasonable cost.

All About Symbian has a nice video introduction to the Wild Ducks Project.

To get started , all you need is :

The project also intends to provide a 'low cost' smart-phone development kit consisting of the Beagleboard , a Beagle UMTS extension board and a LCD touch panel.The goal is to provide a platform to researchers, hardware geeks ,experimenters and companies who may want to experiment with the free Symbian stack for projects where a closer control over the hardware, firmware, and lower-level software is required.

For more information about the project, see the about page.

Get Involved!

The project is driven by a community of passionate and intelligent volunteers. To get involved, first join our mailing list to get support and take part in the technical discussions.

Next, to get started making your own device, get a BeagleBoard and build a Symbian^3 ROM image for it.

Once you have a working device, take part in the project by adding missing functionality! Right now, we need help with:

  • Touch LCD support
  • Bluetooth support
  • WiFi support

and more.

You can also check Quick Start for Developers.

And if you're in London, drop by our office in London for help and tips. We typically work on the project on Tuesday evenings starting around 6 pm, and we always provide pizza!
