We want to support Maemo 5 but I don't currently have access to a N900. I only have a N810.
This makes it difficult to support N800 and N900
There are no current plans to support N770

The old maemo port maintainer is retired and I have taken over his work for the upcoming 1.4.0 release.
This involved a rewrite of the port so there are some major changes to how the hardware keys work.

Having said all that, the 1.4.0 packages will probably work in N900 but I am not sure the non-keyboard keys will work (N900 may not be sending the same Fn keys when you press its hardware keys - for example "menu" and "+")

1.4.0 isn't released yet but this is the story so far.

Hiya Tarek!

I've been following daily for the past few weeks over at
https://github.com/tsoliman

I'm so exciting for this new, upcoming build on my N800.

I would love to be a tester if you need an extra one. :)

Off topic:
You also have a youtube-dl update thingy on your page as well.

Is this a fix for MyTube?

Is there a download to grab this file for Maemo 4 or does someone have to compile it for themselves?

I'm just a little confused since I'm only seeing the source code that you have.

Anyway, many cheers and blessings from a new fan of yours. :)

-James

If you would like to test you can grab a build from the link in the first post of viewtopic.php?p=69423

Keep in mind, stuff has changed in those builds (keybindings and so on)

I also don't have a N800 (only have N810) so I'll need your help ironing out what needs to be changed to fully support it.

Regarding my github fork, the Maemo rewrite code has been merged into scummvm/scummvm/master so there is no need to follow my fork anymore.

Regarding youtube-dl, it is indeed a fix for mytube.
Let's keep this forum for scummvm and talk about this non-scummvm related related thing on github.
