PageOutline = The {{{mobile}}} program =

The {{{mobile}}} program is one of the various host (PC) based programs that you can use together with the {{{layer1.*.bin}}} firmware images inside the phone.

{{{mobile}}} is the most sophisticated OsmocomBB application so far. It implements the behavior of a regular GSM telephone, but is
extended in many ways with features interesting to researchers.

Using {{{mobile}}}, you can e.g. * perform cell (re)selection according to TS 03.22 * MM procedures like location updating, authentication, encryption * send and receive SMS * Establish MT and MO voice calls

In the spirit of all Osmocom projects, the user interface of {{{mobile}}} is based on text commands issued on the command line.


It is assumed that you have already obtained the OsmocomBB source code and compiled both the host programs as well as the firmware
(using a cross-compiler). Please see the general OsmocomBB GettingStarted for guidance.

Getting started with {{{mobile}}}

You need to follow the usual procedure using a CalypsoSerialCable, [wiki:osmocon] and the {{{layer1.*.bin}}} firmware image for your phone.


Command Reference



{{{mobile}}} was primarily written by Andreas Eversberg, based on some initial work that Harald did on layer23. The list of contributors is long, see the git log for details.
