Setting up the Phone


This guide is subject to updates and revisions.

This guide describes the steps needed to set up the Librem 5 phone for application development.


We begin by connecting the phone to a workstation and setting up a network connection before installing tools that assist with software development on the phone itself.

Once development tools are installed, you can develop software on the phone itself. Alternatively, you can use the network connection to conveniently copy software built on a workstation to the phone for testing and installation.
