Introduction

In order to run Papywizard your Nokia 770 Internet Tablet must run OS2007HE.

As supplied the Nokia 770 runs OS2006 and must be upgraded to OS2007HE before installing Papywizard. The Nokia 770 cannot run OS2008.

The Papywizard program is written using the Python programming language. You must install the Python 2.5 runtime before installing the Papywizard program.

Nokia 770

The Nokia 770 was the first of a series of Internet Tablet handheld computers made by Nokia. The Nokia 770 is a very good device, but it suffered from a lack of development by Nokia, who quickly switched their development efforts to the newer N800 and N810 Internet Tablets.

The original firmware (the Linux-derived Maemo operating system and standard applications) is OS2006, which does not support the Python 2.5 runtime, which is required to run Papywizard. So, the first step is to update the firmware to OS2007HE (HE stands for Hacker Edition).
