updating my PHP to #216 i got hung at the "timezone page" it would not highlight ,New York est, so i picked another ,Texas worked to get me past there . is there a better place to put the little " things"
How can I flash UBPorts to the eemc? After testing pmos, KDE neon, and manjaro neon I see UBPorts as having the most promise and ebung the furthest along in development. predictive text, a functioning app store, theres an app to connect to my self hosted nextcloud server, theres just a huge list of positives I'm seeing. Next task will be to see if I can get verizon service going on it. In the mean time I really want to run this from the speed of the internal flash storage.
Some other things I'd like to do; screen rotating, test the camera, test headphones and I'm sure I'll think of more with time.
@Marathon2422 I haven't been able to change time via GUI either (EST) I had to do it via CL

@admsjas See @AppLee answer at the bottom of this thread https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3334/pinephone-tutorial/31
Updated to #217 got hung in setup with demo screen " pull down" , quick off/on, got past that.
it is very slick and good looking in operation.
Re the time zone function ,I guess thats related to location etc .
About the timezone, Bearded1 on UBports TG channel send this :
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata sudo timedatectl set-timezone America/New_York
You can set the timezone using either command and even by choosing
Manuallyin the settings...
Changes may take some time to be visible.
I tried manually in settings but it didn't work, thanks for the CL setting
ignore this one, battery died on me
My PinePhone arrived!
UT_# 221, redownloading #221 , to see if i had a bad download , could not get past the ubuntu start screen
Feb 20th 9pm ish -- made my first pinephone call (on plasma OS 02/20th) :- ringing and talking was very tinny ,but it worked , so it can and has been done , it won't be long now , well done all you guys working on this ,all the little bits are coming together now.
@PINE64 I would like to know how to access, take photos using the integrated cameras.
I have had no luck sofar getting either of the cameras to return an image. Post a tutorial or something.
Im using either postmarket OS, or Ubuntu touch, depending on which has fewer kernel stability issues at the time.
@PINE64 provides the hardware, the community (hence you/us) provides the soft part.
Plus this forum is not the best place for your request ; https://forum.pine64.org/forumdisplay.php?fid=121 is more suitable.
To try and answer your question, you can find a way to take pictures with postmarketOS here (never tried though) :
For UT I didn't search more but couldn't find how to do it.
For now cameras are listed under 'not working' for UT.
See the readme here:
i just loaded 233 build and flashed to the emmc. when i went to change the password i get the error:
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
I don't see a question here and this is not the thread purpose.
Please check the gitlab for opened issues and post yours : https://gitlab.com/ubports/community-ports/pinephone/issues?scope=all&utf8=✓&state=opened
And try to give more details and check for reproduction.
As much as I can, I force myself to reflash with another build which I think worked ; then test.
Then reflash with the build I suspect is not working and check again.
Sometimes flashing errors occurs... Or I was the problem
i thought this was the place to discuss thing regarding UT on pinephone if not my apologies. the issue was the same running from sd card and from the emmc

Today's build brings many new improvements to the PinePhone, including performance and the modem automatically starting at boot (as well as auto-rotating the display - although I haven't gotten that working just yet).
I can't wait to go back home and test it
