@PINE64: You guys are amazing! I think the transparency, how you develop the pinephone, and how you took all the different communities with you on your path, it is quite exemplary.
there is one thing which seems to me a little inconsistent and in convenient.
If you want to go "back" e.g. in settings, you have to reach somehow the "back"-button across the screen.
In my opinion the ui would be more convenient, if you could just swipe from left to right to go back - especially if you use your phone with just one hand.
@Stefano I hope that. It would be a reward as well for the hard work they have done and the time they have invested.
I think the Xperia X port is worked on more than a year now. Thats quite a lot of time he put in it I imagine.
I learn python at the moment. Maybe a can participate with some apps someday.
I don't understand what that actually means - being a gold sponsor -, but I am happy about it, "Finally" Ubports gets a preinstalled UT-device. The installer really is great and makes flashing UBtouch quite easy but it isn't for everyone still.
After one of my Xx's broke some days ago, I (re-)consider buying one myself.
Nevertheless, I hope both benefit from this partnership.
@makeixo I've been working on this port in my spare time for around 1,5 years now.
I know that. I have followed it. But this part was more or less rhetorical with points I would have to consider.
But what I know for sure. I would donate some extra money if someone achieves that the camera finally takes some decent pictures. I know that has nothing to do with the port - its a DRM Key thingy. It is just a waste.
at least with arm64 bringup.
What do you mean by that? I thought it is arm64 build. Is there another version?
The problem is probably that it depends on the user what it's worth for him/her.
That's hard to say. I have no idea how many hours you have spent on it. How difficult it is to write a port like this. How many users are already using/supporting the port. Will the Xx be at some point a core device which can replace my Xx with SFOS?
A SFOS app developer gives users the option to choose how much they want to pay. He offers 3 categories. This would take in consideration what you have said.
There could be a 3 category recommendation (one-off payment/monthly):
This way user could categorize themselves and the system would be flexible enough that user can donate some amount between 1 and 2 or 2 and 3.
In other news: I've enabled the remaining necessary changes for Anbox to work on the Xperia X. These changes, also, should land within the next two days.
Ok, GPS does not work on my Xx.
Does anyone have the same issue? Do you think that reflashing could solve the issue?
@Giampy: Flashlight works fine on my Xx, too
Regarding the funding of the port. Maybe UBports or @fredldotme should give a recommendation how much someone, who wants to use the port, should donate. I know paying for stuff in foss world is always a difficult topic, but maybe that would help to generate some more donations. Furthermore, it would make it easier for people like me, who don't have any clue how much would be a fair amount. Is it 10€? 30€? 50€? Or even more? I don't know.
At the end it's not that different what Jolla does. If I want to use an official port from Jolla, then I have to pay 50 €. If the phone breaks, then I have to spend another 50 €.
