If you have a Maemo device that is not the N900, we suggest you install the Tor package from the Maemo website. The Tor Project does not produce these packages. They are maintained by the Maemo community.
The following instructions should help install an experimental Tor controller and Tor as packaged for the N900 Nokia telephone. This is currently an untested configuration. The browser in this configuration does not have Torbutton and it should not be used for high security anonymity needs at this time.
Press 'New' to enable the maemo extras-devel repository.
Note: This repository contains untested packages that might harm your device.
See Extras-devel for details. You should probably disable extras-devel after installing Tor, or proceed at your own risk.
Enter the following information into the catalog addition screen:
Catalog name: Extras devel Web address: http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/ Distribution: fremantle Components: free non-free
Make sure 'Disabled' is unchecked, hit 'Save', and wait for the package list to update.
Visit TorCheck to confirm that
you are routing browser traffic through Tor:
Note that this might not always give you the latest stable Tor version. Additionally, the N900 web browser does not have Torbutton. This means that while it may be useful for circumvention, it probably is unsuitable for strong web browser anonymity requirements.
