My second mainline port (Xiaomi Mi 5) is in. Still quite early due to limited SoC support, but most basic things should work. Enjoy πŸŽ‰

#osk-sdl 0.65 is out, and adds support for disabling the on-screen keyboard for devices with physical keyboards!

I'm working on some changes for #postmarketos

@Fairphone The key insight from the fairphone "experiment" is that you can't have a sustainable phone without sustainable (read: free) software. The best repair options won't help if you can't get firmware updates (as seen dramatically with the FP1). I posted an article back in 2019 on this topic:

Using pmOS on the OnePlus 6! Performance is quite good, and works great in browsing and listening to music through Elisa. Thanks for audio support @calebccff πŸ˜„
