I uploaded my progress on making a #pinephone backplate that can be used to build on for the keyboard challenge here: youmagine.com/designs/pinephon

4th attempt at a #pinephone backplate is printing now. Just realized I forgot to design any kind of battery cover. Doh.

@martijnbraam's pmOS CE install video starts with factory quality testing/flashing and shows the first run experience at 2:30 with the on-device installer.

Since the final rootfs, the on-device installer rootfs and the factory rootfs all run postmarketOS, this became a beautiful three layer cake of postmarketOS images. 🍰 😁

Version 0.0.6 of our sync app is now available on the OpenStore.

It includes a fix for the whitescreen bug on arm64 devices like the (Thanks to timdev and hummlbach).
Another improvement in this release is reliable storage path creation for saving screenshots.

My #pinephone seems to work just fine with 15 screws and the entire back frame absent. Why's it missing? I'm cloning it in openscad for that keyboard contest thing. :D

@normandc
WiFi on tje is provided by the Realtek RTL8723CS, not the modem. The driver sucks for sure, given its inability to stay connected when there are 2 APs providing the same SSID.

@PINE64 I got #navit to display a map on #pinephone. Need to get it reading the modem for gps next on #mobian

@stux Why? I mean, it is far ahead (because work on it started a lot earlier), but it isn’t particularly great on the yet – works better on my old Nexus 4 which is sadly no longer supported. Too much just does not work yet: Account set up, Libertine with GUI, reliable phone functionality …

currently testing 4GB zram on the #Pinephone (200% of internal memory).

zram compression apparently shrinks the data by slightly more than 50%, so 200% of internal memory is the highest reliable option one should set.

Having suffered from 'incoming calls don’t work with my SIM' for quite a while on most distributions on my @PINE64 , the issue is now fixed on @danct12 ‘s Huong Tram Linux/ @archlinux. video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1

so, 1GB #zram does in fact work reasonably well on the #pinephone. in this case, i opened 7 distinct & isolated firefox processes to use as much RAM as possible. Almost using 3GB on a device that has only 2! insane!
