We'd like to clear the record: The #PinePhone has two blobs -- neither runs on the main SoC: One loaded to WiFi/BT module, other enclosed within the cell modem. In the modern world of tech, both blobs are unavoidable.

@iooioio exactly. We might have abundance of abandoned X11 WMs, but surely no abundance of Wayland tablet shells at the moment
@martijnbraam indeed! Not sure how usable it is at its current status though
