Publishing a Yocto based build system for Nemo Mobile

Since shipping the Necunos NC_1 devices were delayed we wanted to find other ways to give back to Free and Open Souce Mobile Software community for their awesome work. Our employee had their freetime side project where he was converting Nemo Mobile’s OBS build system to Yocto based one and changing the outdated Mer middleware to more recent OpenEmbedded based middleware.

Yocto Project is a community driven umbrella project that is created to help building embedded systems and embedded software. It is a great tool to develop mobile distribution!

Now released Nemo Mobile Yocto build system includes instructions to create Nemo Mobile images, toolchains and QEMU emulator. At the time of publishing this build system only supports qemux86 and qemux86_64 targets but adding new devices as Yocto layers is straight forward.


Head to https://source.necunos.com/nemomobile/nemomobile to start Yocto Nemo Mobile development!

Ready QEMU images and toolchain can be found from here and Nemo Mobile Yocto Wiki is here.

And Yocto Wiki is great place to get on with Yocto development.


Project is based on AsteroidOS Yocto project. Thanks to AsteroidOS guys!
Huge thanks to @locusf


Nemo Mobile is community driven project and should be used only in a development purposes. In this stage Nemo Mobile is only meant for development, not for production.
Necunos is providing this build system only for development purposes and this project has no affiliation with Necunos products.

About Us

Necunos provides the most transparent and secure complete mobile solution.

We started with creating a secure communications software but realized that it wont be secure if its running on Android or iOS where data collection and backdoor access is inevitable. We decided to create our own Linux-based up-to-date independent operating system that would respect peoples privacy and provide them with transparent security. Once we got deep into the hardware and operating systems we noticed we couldn't trust the hardware running our operating system. There are too many unknowns and too many closed firmwares running in there. We decided to go and create the most transparent and clean mobile hardware and software stack solution where the user can be absolutely sure that his communications are secured and privacy respected.
