  1. There are so little instructions on the ih8sn in the internet so i thought i could share how to get it to work on pro1 if anyone is interested in that. Fresh install is not needed and you don't need magisk or any SU package to pass safetynet after this. Not sure if this works for other OSes than Lineage but someone can have a shot and tell if it does. Requirements: -ADB on your computer -Debugging and rooted debugging enabled on your phone from developer options. -Latest ih8sn aarch64 release downloadable here, extract the zip, you don't need the .conf file as it is for different phon

  3. Quoting my old post. So 8 months ago I got a new display from Aliexpress and asked from a local phone mechanic to do the replacement. He refused because he didn't know the phone and didn't want to take responsibility from accidentally breaking the device. So I tried to do it myself, which went well otherwise but I put too much heat on the display, which ended up with the display plastic frame melting and losing the shape 😐 Should have got a heat gun with adjustable heat level 😄 So I put my Pro1 in the drawer and while waiting to get the display+frame from Fxtec (which was promised much ea

  4. You actually don't need UniversalSafetyNetFix with pro1 if you use MagiskHidePropsConfig. I have understood that USNF is more needed on devices with hardware attestation and pro1 uses basic attestation so only changing of the fingerprint with MHPC and putting google gms on denylist is needed to pass safetynet, and that always worked for me too. Then you might need to set some other props with MHPC for some programs to work that check more than just Safetynet pass. Anyways there is a new way to pass SafetyNet on Lineage without magisk at all called ih8sn. I personally switched completely t

My insurers app doesn't like rooted phones either and i am now able

  7. If he doesn't answer, people complain. But it is hard to be specific when you can't be sure about the situation enough to give an iron clad assurance. Rock and a hard place. The problem is not just how small Fxtec is. It;s that it does very little in house and they don't own or have priority with any of the pieces. Unlike Apple, who own all of the pieces and have high priority, or Samsung, close enough to the same. FxTec has to juggle multiple providers and contracts where they have very low priority. So, if they have scheduled fkashing and packaging for shipping, but things are hal

  8. Gotta step up to them. Yes, they are slow but they always have been very honest with me; the only ,problem' was they once sent me a replacement phone which was locked up (by google something) and could not be used at all. Helped by a forum member. But hey, it worked after that. Then I bought a second back cover (because I'm stupid and broke off the fingerprint ribbon cable) and waited for the delivery for eternity. Yes, I tried to contact them several times, they even wanted me to cancel that order and send me the money back but I did not want that. Now all of the sudden they got back to

  9. Got my Pro1 back from repair and decided to start out with Lineage 19 as described above by Eske (I flashed the 20220613 recovery image... probably could have used the Lineage 18 recovery which also worked for AICP, but I wanted a fresh start). I also wanted to note that I was able to sideload version 25 of Magisk as a zip (depreciated install technique) in order to get SU, which ios all I use Magisk for. I had to open the Magisk Manager app to finish install, which was painless, but I think might be new. I don't remember having to do that before just for SU. Took me 30 minutes (and then a

  11. I suppose the certificate needs to be acquired for each software release no matter how small the change is. Fixing a bug would cause a new release and require a new certificate.

  12. It's admittedly confusing, and I have no special insight on what happened here. @EskeRahn's guess is plausible. However, this last update is the first one to explicitly say "Mass shipping has now been confirmed..." I would take that as a clear sign that the manufacturing hurdles have been surmounted. Hopefully.

  14. And I am another who really has never been given any reason to complain about F(x) Tec's customer service. Yes there have been delays, but in fact the communication was good if you factor in that they don't say much if they don't actually have any news. When there were delays, they were very clear that there would be delays and they didn't know how long. I accepted that. Certainly never got a Frankenphone back. It's only my experience, but I am very happy with the CS I have received from this company. Far better than anything I have received by any other phone company.

  15. Indeed. I met them at the London event before all the Corona mess. And it was quite obvious that these are really good guys, and kind too. If you could blame them for anything it would be for being overoptimistic, and that communication isn't their strong side. But they undoubtedly really tries to go an extra mile to bring keyboard phones back. I'm amazed to see their stamina! Had it been me, I would have folded after the swindle, but oh no, they 'just' went for reinventing the whole inner part once more!! And Chen's handling of the Moto-Mod project that failed due to Motorola, was also a

  16. Since I bought my phone I've had to replace my screen before already, but since a few months the replacement has been slowly breaking in the very same way. I've contacted support, and after a long wait and a reminder they got back to me. They asked me to confirm my shipping details and once I've done so, they sent me a replacement module along with a complementary battery and sheet of screw cover stickers right away. (Just like for Milly it seems). This arrived merely 2 days later and I've swapped my screen module over the last weekend, having everything working as it should again. I'm happy

  19. I missed that topic this far! The below video shows 60 wpm/252 cpm, but I'm now about 10% faster. There seems to be a convergence to about 40-65 wpm here, which together with the accuracy (very little mistake rate) should be enough to convince people about how useful can a hardware thumb keyboard be; and that's without bringing screen estate and application/OS keybindings into the equation.

  23. Thankfully, they aren't giving up. I'm glad for that. I do wish they were more transparent on sharing what they don't know and what they are barred from knowing more publicly. It would make PR so much better. This shouldn't be needed but, for real, people need to be reminded about how pandemic status is still causing complete mess in China...

  24. The problem with this, is that it is just for typing text not controlling your phone like you do with a keyboard, think ctrl + tab and other shortcuts. I wonder if you could develop such a mode where the virtual keyboard is sticky. There is that and the fact that the front screen is way too narrow on the Fold.

  25. After typing on a keyboard phone again for a while, I can just feel again how awkward touchscreens are to type. I do not type enough to get really fast but I do type on it! On the touchscreen I often wait until I am at a computer before I reply.

  26. Add to that not having to look concentrated at the keyboard during typing, to keep touches inside the dedicated 'key' areas.....

  27. You're a beast! I'm still stuck at 50WPM but I have been out of the game for a bit due to a dislocated thumb 😬 (no worries, it's fully recovered by now). For me what i'd call a "leasurely" pace would be 40-45WPM which I'm sure people can do on a touchscreen, but for me it's not even so much about speed, it's just way less frustrating and harsh on the fingers when there's some feedback rather than just hammering my thumbs on a pane of glass.

  28. Due to the large inner display of the Fold 3, the keyboard can be emulated very large and clearly on the lower half of the screen. Probably even more comfortable than on the Fx Pro1. 😅

  30. Wow, who'd have thought. A replacement screen has been sent by F(x)Tec today (requested July 2021). Along with 'a complementary battery due to the inconveniences caused'.... Hopefully this screen, my third, will not develop the ghost touch issues of the first two. Otherwise, at least I'll be using my Pro 1 for another 9 months or so 🙂

  31. Hello again, I can confirm that dual boot with Ubuntu Touch and current LineageOS 19.1 is working. Some small things have changed over the year: Magisk (needed to get root access in LineageOS) can not be used as version 21.4 (last version available as zip) in Android12 (it does not turn up as installed app), so sideloading that doesn't make sense. Instead the way with patching boot.img is needed. But it turns out to be quite easy: The file "boot.img" has not to be extracted from full nightly build img, the file is exactly the same as the recovery-pro1.img . Just download linea

  32. I hope that package contains a phone. 🙂 Have you ordered anything else from China which may also be that package? ...maybe are you a former Pro1 backer who did not receive Pro1 yet (or having it in for repair)? Okay, their message about shipping makes it really "suspicious" that it may be a Pro1X. 😄 Also, your round position of the globe would also help or may give huge hope for others nearby (USA, parts of Europe, Asia, India, etc, etc.) 🙂

  33. Indeed this looks self contradicting. I do not know why. My personal GUESS is that they in April just got a confirmation that it passed and they would be getting the official approval, but did not get the actual paperworks... But I could be wrong. And do seem odd that this should take more than a month to be delivered.

  34. Note that they have now purged the oldest of the four releases with 18.1, so expect them all to be gone within weeks. So IF you are interested in 18.1, then make sure to pull a copy ASAP.... (They did the same with 17 after 18 was released)

  39. I have tried rigoursly to find a stable way to trigger it, without any luck. The bug is common for Lineage 18 and 19 as well as AICP R Unfortunately we do not have an Android 11 for the Pro1, so we can not tell if the bug is in Lineage or deeper. When the bug kicks in, the phone DO draw power from the charger, but only to sustain what ever the phone is doing, not to charge it, so the battery percentage remains at a (roughly) constant level for hours. There seem to be some system to prevent over-charging a constantly connected phone, my personal theory is that it is this system,

  40. This is a known issue, though I think most of the discussion has taken place in the Lineage 18.1 thread and in the Lineage room on the unofficial FxTec Discord. No one seems to have quite figured out what brings this one in terms of reliable steps to recreate. I certainly haven't, though it does happen to me, just not often and not predictably. Then again, I haven't kept up with all the postings, maybe others know more.

  41. If they can fix a static noise problem with a SW fix and then flash a new SW version right away without reapplying a certificate, this would break my theory. Possibly the fix is in an application which is not covered by the certificate.

  42. I got My Pro1 back. I decided to not steal my T-mobile sim back from my Pinephine plus keyboard (mostly because it requires removing the keyboard and the connection is finicky), but T-mobile is no longer offering the $15/month plan w 1 GB data so I went to Ting Mobile for my Pro1. They even claim the IEMI is supported (my theory is if you type any random set of numbers and letters in there the decision tool will say you are supported 😄 ). They have a plan that is $10 for unlimited calls and text and 5$ for each 1GB of data, which works out to the same as the T-Mobile plan. The SIM is iden

PS Just noticed that the https://opengapps.org/ has pulled the 20220503 for Arm and Arm64, reverting to previous 20220215, so I guess they have some serious issues (that I have not encountered). Their page does not have a text on this, and the 0503 is still available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/opengapps/files/arm64/

  49. So, nobody's going to point out the math 🤣 Mass shipping mid June. Yet LoS needs another month 🤪 Anyway, I'm excited. I can't wait to have them both after one year without. I look forward to comparing them side by side. A shame it won't be in time for the SummerJam festival in Germany. That's what I had lasered on the back. I wanted to show it off @ SummerJam. Guess it'll have to wait another year.
