The modem (yes, the modem) can now run Linux kernel 5.10 ( @postmarketOS )... we're sure many of you know where this is heading :)
Massive thanks to biktorgj, konradybcio and others.

@Bobo_PK @PINE64 @postmarketOS

my guess is that a fully free software firmware for the pinephone modem if in the works, but I could very well be wrong here

@iansutter @Bobo_PK @PINE64 @postmarketOS It can't be fully open because the firmware for the DSP is closed, but this brings it slightly more to the open side.

@PINE64 @postmarketOS please consider getting some **powerful** #riscv processor for your forthcoming laptops and phones 😃

@PINE64 @postmarketOS what are the chances this modem is pin compatible with #librem5 or mostly for laptops and PCs?

@wisemonkey @PINE64 @postmarketOS IIRC, the uses m.2 for their modems. The Quectel EG-25G in the appears to big to fit on such a card:

@linmob @PINE64 @postmarketOS thanks, so at least #PinePhone can make use of this, as long as it gets in mobile it's good news.

@PINE64 @postmarketOS Imagine if something as small as a Nintendo Switch but with Linux.

@PINE64 @postmarketOS yo dawg I herd yo liek linux boxes so we put a linux box in your linux box so you can hack while you hack.

@PINE64 @postmarketOS this is super exciting, is there anywhere i can read more on it?

@PINE64 @postmarketOS I don't know how I'm missing these posts it's a good thing I read a lot. This never showed up in any of my feeds.
