  1. Okay, I found the solution. This "member title" is actually considered to be sort of an exclusive perk for active users who have contributed a lot in the forums. In my Admin control panel, I was able to find the current threshold to "unlock" members title - 500 content posts. Considering @Hook's suggestion is very constructive, I've lowered the threshold to 0 contents required (unless there's any thoughts on this?), meaning all new/old users can set their own titles now. Enjoy! 😄

  2. Don't know why I didn't notice this before. I always liked signatures in forums so that folks could see, whether asking or answering, what devices you had. However, we do have a "member title" field in our profile. So I'm using it to let everyone know I only have a Pro 1 so that people can regard any answers I have about a Pro1X with suspicion. 😄 It's still a good idea to specify what model you are talking about in thread titles and posts as things can get confusing with the two different yet similar phones, especially if people have not listed under their names, but it is still usefu

  3. @Heruvim I got mine from here: https://www.expansys.com/ You might want to consider import taxes and warranty, there is some discussion here, search the forum on 'Expansys' for more info. Shipped to NZ in about a fortnight. No complaints at all from me, seems very solidly built and runs very well, new daily driver from day one.

  5. Finally, this issue has been fixed by restoring backup files. I need pass '--memory=ufs' for each command $ ./edl w persist ./persist_backup.img --memory=ufs $ sleep 3 $ ./edl w modemst2 ./modemst2_backup.img --memory=ufs $ sleep 3 $ ./edl w modemst1 ./modemst1_backup.img --memory=ufs $ sleep 3 $ ./edl w fsc ./fsc_backup.img --memory=ufs $ sleep 3 $ ./edl w fsg ./fsg_backup.img --memory=ufs $ sleep 3 Here is link for my backup files if you need them: https://github.com/steward-fu/pro1x/releases/tag/v1.0 Thanks

  6. Yet another way how to backup persist (or any other) partition even without PC, with rooted phone and Magisk: Install Magisk module "backup" and reboot. After that using some terminal app in phone (I use Termux), first gain root access: su and then enter backup persist it will create file persist.img in folder /backup of your phone's internal storage. The path can be changed of course. I suppose same can be achieved with dd command, but the above is easier. Instead of terminal app in the phone you can of course use adb shell from a pc.

  7. I installed the utility AccA from F-Droid that @brunoais has already commented on in this thread, it seems to work well. There are settings for limiting charge level, charge rate, high temperature cut off, and low charge level shut down. As already stated, your Pro1(X) needs to be rooted, so this tool may not be for you, I took instructions from here: Note: This procedure works on Pro1X, I'm not sure about Pro1 at the moment. I'll amend if I work it out or somebody with a Pro1 can clarify. I also took the advice of ensuring 'offline charging' was enabled on my Pro1X, (guid

  8. This update looks correct in my opinion. Community is sharing high knowledge, some powerful users/developpers are working in alternative OS, fxtec work hard on debugging issues with components manufacturer...what else ? Delays aren't really a problem according to backing such of niche hardware. Most important is the follow-up here. (one more time : in my opinion 😄)

  9. Update: Until Februari 2023 I won't be able to dispatch out stickers and I'm not sure I'll watch the forum, but until then if you want stickers you can message @Hook to request stickers regardless of location :). They are still available and still free. Edit: do not be concerned, i'm just away traveling for a while :).

  12. All I can say up to now is that the raw GPU performance of the Pro1-X is indeed much lower than the Pro1's. In Super Tux Kart (love that game!) the X reaches somewhat less than half the frame rate, given identical graphics settings (top: Pro1, bottom: Pro1-X): While this is unfortunately quite noticeable in a fast-paced game like that, it of course does not matter much in normal phone use. In many cases the Pro1-X actually feels faster than the Pro1, e.g. when launching apps, as if the disk-IO was faster. However, that may also be related to Android 11 (on the Pro1-X) being bet

  13. So, the speaker issue is definitely improving. With the battery fully charged (and /sys/class/power_supply/battery/voltage_now >~ 4100000 µV), the tapping sound reappeared sometimes while changing the volume of a playing youtube video, though not to the extend to make the video unwatchable. Now, with the battery charge at 72% (/sys/class/power_supply/battery/voltage_now ~ 4000000 µV), I'm back to "cannot reproduce" ... I am now quite confident that this problem will quickly go away with ageing of the battery, as others have observed, and I regret opening the Pro1-X for this (

  15. So I fixed my keyboard issue. Hastily way. Since beginnings I had to press hard on several keys, wich is incompatible with a real use of the keyboard. Mainly letters 'a', 'e', 'm', 'h' (and mny more)...are swallowed. But sometimes it has worked as expected (not often), and sometimes it's a real pain (often). Average : a bad experience Example with taping this as fast as possible : "Les chiens aboient la caravane passe" Ls cins aboint la caravan passe Ls chiens aboint l crvane passe Ls cins abint la caaravan pass Digging into software doesn't help to find a workaround

  16. I made an account just to say that just tightening the screws fixed most of my keyboard issues with my pro1! I was having issues with the m, e, d, l keys, but no longer! =D Thanks for the write up! I'll post if I find out anything else Edit, seems to be only a partial fix. I do still get double presses on the e and l still, but it is much much rarer!

  20. Hi All, So I have finally made some time to expand the /home storage on my Pro1X. Piggz gave me the instructions on discord some weeks ago (and echoed here a few posts above), but they were suitably vague. I will share what I did, though it may or may not be wise to do the same. I bumbled my way through, not carefully considered my way through. EDIT: I should have noted that this will delete all your /home, so back up anything of importance. On the SFOS install i ran as devel-su "resize2fs /dev/sda13" as per @GoaSkin instructions here. I had to replace the stock recovery

  21. @steff I used the upload form on liquidas webpage. That worked well. And an update to my case: I opened the first ticket on Sep 22nd and sent them the drivers receipt via email on Sep 23rd. On Nov 11th Liquida confirmed that they dropped/finished my case. Today I got an answer to that ticket from September saying they confirm the accounting transaction (whatever that means exactly). So I guess they are a bit overwhelmed by all the tickets they have/get and are about 2 months behind... Nice that at least their dept collection department seems to be fully automated and that they don't

  23. I have updated LineageOS 16.0 to include backported security fixes up to ASB patchlevel "5 November 2022". At http://findus.zwergenschaenke.net/~puma/linux.html#lineagepro1 grab the ROM dated 20221117. Remember that this is for the original SD835 Pro1 only. The note about lacking upstream code-review from previous months still applies. All I can say is that the build seems to run without issues on my own prawn. Note that, with this release, I have added a compile-time option that disables most of the kernel messages generated by the keyboard driver. I always disliked how e

  24. There's no consistent relation between purchasing/backing date and delivery date; Fxtec told me there would have been some problems on the Chinese side with regard to the shipping order. I already have my October 2020 Indiegogo early bird order, but I still haven't received my September 2019 (!) Pro1 order (later changed to Pro1X)...

  25. Replying to my own question: Seems like it doesn't look very good for HDMI-out on the Pro1X, at least when it comes to alternative OS's. Unsurprisingly, I can confirm that my all-in-one UGREEN USB-C dock, which works flawlessly with the Pro1, does nothing regarding HDMI when connected to the Pro1X (also Ethernet does not work with the X btw ...). After a bit of reading, I wonder whether the solution that was presented during development of the Pro1X is actually using any native "HDMI-out" features of the SoC. Rather, it seems to implement an MHL interface and needs a proprietary APK

  27. One thing that I will flag, for anyone else who may be following along, is that you probably shouldn't use scrcpy for hours on end. At least in my case it overheated my Pro¹ X so much that it automatically shut itself off.

  28. So I started playing around with my Pro1-X again. After the device being shelved for ~1.5 weeks, the battery is now at 61% and /sys/class/power_supply/battery/voltage_now never exceeds 3870000 µV. In this state, I cannot reproduce the speaker issue! So, maybe, it indeed occurs only on brand-new devices (and batteries) where the voltage exceeds 4.1 V significantly after charge ... ? This might explain why the problem goes away after some time of using the Pro1-X. edit: Re-charging the Pro1-X now, to check whether the problem comes back with battery full.

  30. NB - I just tried to do this, and the command "fastboot oem off-mode-charge enable" does not work. It generates "FAILED (remote: Invalid input entered)". So instead, I tried "fastboot oem off-mode-charge 1", and that worked. I just switched off the phone and plugged it in, and it did not boot into Android. It just gave me an image of a battery with percentage of charge in it. Success!

  32. I believe @TechLvr is using my (LOS16) rom. Therein, the respective section under "System > Languages & Input" is indeed called "Input assistance". In my case, the spell-checker panel looks like this: Where I have several "System languages" selected under "Languages & input": During typing one can then switch between those on-the-fly using the "globe" icon on the on-screen keyboard, or using "FxTec+Space" on the HW keyboard. Did you install any alternative keyboard apps?

  33. There are no guarantees on the dates. They have stated that they expect to have it shipped in December. Though we do not know if more than the already ordered were produced, so new orders put up today might not be sent in December - but this is not knowledge just a guess,

  34. Hi guys, First Jolla user here. I just found info about this wonderful phone, found pre order with December delivery and wanted to buy it However after I found this thread as well and I see that here we have strange delivery issues Does it mean that if I pre order the pro1x now I won't get it during December. Instead no one acutally knows when I will get it. Please confirm if I understood correctly

  35. Just to add that I'd cracked a small corner of my screen maybe a year or so ago and ordered the cheap screen from China for like 45$ CAD or so shipped. It wasn't a ton of damage though so I waited for a major reason to switch it, which was as of 3ish days ago getting a ton of random ghost touches making it type messages and send pics to people LOL no joke. So I just replaced it and wow it was so hard to remove the screen without a heat gun. Tons of glass shards still stuck and took a while to remove carefully with an xacto knife. Also the 3M adhesive was confusing but I used logic and figure i

  37. I have problems also pretty much exactly as you describe them. I am on the T Mobile network also and live pretty close to the Canadian boarder, but don't cross over. As I'm talking to people sometimes one of us or the other will cut out... sometimes both of us at the same time. The duration varies, but can last multiple seconds... long enough the other party gets frustrated and hang up. Sometimes switching to speaker helps, but not always.

  38. For me, yesterday I called FedEx again (fifth time) and forwarded my mailings second time and received a promise third time that they will forward it internally and get back to me. As per our conversation with representatives, they know about these problems but I think the problem is handled centrally. (I have asked why their response was in English although I wrote in my local language and they told their internal communication is in English and that is the reason - what I still not really understand as it is not evident their local customer speaks the language but it may explain why l

  39. I thought I was the only one with this problem... Also in Germany, also my IGG order delivered by Fedex. I also got a invoice by Fedex and several reminders. Thankfully the driver gave me a receipt, which I emailed to Fedex twice and even sent them a letter with a copy... Still the dept collector (Liquida) took over eventually. Just uploaded them all the emails and the receipt and asked them to drop the "debt". They got back to me after a day and told me they did. So this story is (hopefully) finally over for me, but it was way to stressful and time consuming. Just a reminder to

  42. I don't know about the firmware fix, but there are two issues here. One is connectivity on different bands--- that is what the firmware fix will address. The other is that Verizon is only allowing white listed phones on their network and the Pro1X isn't one of them. It will connect unofficially with a muled SIM, but it may stop working at any time. That is out of FxTec's hands. There is a whole thread here about Verizon on the Pro 1 and Pro 1x, Some claim to get it working, but rarely come back to periodically verify that it keeps working. I got 3 months with Verizon on the Pro1 before SMS

  43. Think this one might be dead in the water for SD835. Would have been fun to try, but no audio, wifi or cellular kills it for me: https://wiki.renegade-project.cn/en/state As an aside, W10 22H2 going forward has dropped support for ARMv8 as well.

  44. I had this, only I think it was a fade to black. In my case, it happened a little while after a sharp drop cracked the screen at a particular point on the edge. Assuming you haven't dropped it, I'd say it should be something to get fixed under warranty as others have said. But I'd also suggest you enable debug mode on the phone before the screen deteriorates further, and install scrcpy. At least then you can use the phone through the computer and back up data before you're ready to send it in for repairs.

  45. I have been using my pro1x as a daily driver for over two weeks now and have loved everything about it other than the cellular connectivity issues (i have not noticed any wifi issues with mine). My issues have been in placing and receiving calls (I have not had calls cut off). I did notice that I would not have a problem placing a call if it was done immediately after a restart and I was using that as a work around (I only make a couple of calls a day). But my partner was getting fed up of talking to my voice mail every time they called. So a couple of days ago I started playing with the prefe

  46. Deep discharge should indeed generally be avoided, though the system should do an auto-shutdown before the voltage drop starts. The only benefit is calibration, so perhaps once a year. Similar the system ought to take care of not overcharging too (it charges slower towards the end), and in daily life it is hard to stop the charging below full. Some software exists allowing more control, but AFAIK only for rooted devices. So my general advise is to use a slow charger, when the device is idle, e.g. at night. (More hints see e.g. this )
