Great news for all N770 users! Someone discovered that is possible to make Skype run on N770 with Os2007 HE.

All you have to do is follow these steps:

  1. Install skype-ui through Application Manager

  2. Download this package in your PC and extract the file named skyhost

  3. Find a way to copy the file skyhost to your maemo device in /usr/bin

  4. execute this from root on your device:

chown user:users /usr/bin/skyhost

That's all! You can find more information on the original post.

Spim - MIPS Emulator for N770

You can download spim for N770/800 from here:
