Mobi is software which is designed to provide access to a Un*x machine using a Bluetooth-enabled SonyEricsson phone.
A simple menu file is used to define a menu structure. Menu items can be tied to arbitrary shell commands or external programs, maximizing flexibility. Menus can also be loaded from programs rather than from files, meaning that dynamically changing menus are easy to realize, e.g. to browse a filesystem, an MP3 collection or a mail folder.
Mobi connects to any phone within its reach which passes the Bluetooth authorization process (usually by providing the correct PIN number). If the phone gets out of reach, Mobi will reconnect once it is found again. The number of simultaneously connected phones is restricted only by hardware capabilities.
Mobi uses the accessory menu of the phone. This feature is present in most SonyEricsson phones. It is tested on a T610, but should work on T68, T68i, T610, T630, Z600, and perhaps other models.
The accessory interface has been completely redesigned for newer phones (K750, W550, W600, W800, Z520), but I am not able to implement this since I do not have access to one of those. For the P800/P900, there are different solutions.
What's New in This Release:
No phone reset on connect, since it may end a call in progress.
Improved installation scripts (using autoconf/automake).
Menu files may now recursively include other files.
Improved music playback scripts. Makes it much easier to support other players.
Reloading the menu file will not do a full reset, but only replace the menu.
