Welcome home HackRF Jawbreaker 305, welcome home!

To get the HackRF Jawbreaker running I:

  • Installed Ubuntu 12.04 in VMWare Fusion
  • Ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade
  • Ran the amazing build-gnuradio script
  • Followed the instructions on the HackRF beta page to build the hack-rf tools and upgrade the firmware

The first couple times I attempted to run the build-gnuradio script it failed. This was due to a lack of ram. My VM was provisioned with 1GB of ram and 1GB of swap out of the box. Bumping it to 4GB or ram (I imagine 2 would have done it) got everything building correctly.
