Libreboot flashing ^_^ Replicant installationNone

Most users are not aware that lower levels of the software in their computer have privileged and unmanaged access to the hardware. That is why it's a matter of both freedom and privacy to have free drivers, free firmware and free BIOS running on your computer.

During this workshop a volunteer of Technoethical will show you how to install Libreboot, a fully free BIOS. If you have any Libreboot-compatible device, you can bring it for the installation.

I am Marco, I volunteer for Technoethical since not long ago and I have limited skills in this field atm. So far I have flashed Libreboot only on these laptops: Lenovo X200 and Lenovo T400, and have assisted with flashing a Lenovo X200s that is the laptop I currently use. Flashing on the X200s requires soldering wires on the flash chip and it's beyond the scope of this workshop.

I haven't tried a lot of smartphones with Replicant as an OS, but from my experience I can suggest you the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (N7100), and the Samsung Galaxy S3 (I9300).

At the workshop I will bring Technoethical WiFi mPCIe cards 100% compatible with free GNU/Linux-libre distributions and endorsed by the FSF.
