  1. Pro1 uses a display originally manufactured for Elephone U Pro. Here is an original display (my handwriting of the amount of black spot problem was blured) made for Elephone U Pro: Here are the displays arrived today: No, the original display I had in my hands was the original display of my Pro1 (early version). It looked like the top/bottom displays in the photo above. However, looking deeper of the most right one which is installed in frame, I suspect its sticky part was not covered with black tape (like the display in the middle). I think it may be a repl

  2. For the few remaining fans of Pie, I have just uploaded a new build of my unofficial LineageOS 16.0 for Pro1 (SDS835). At http://findus.zwergenschaenke.net/~puma/linux.html#lineagepro1 go for the ROM dated "20240515". After many months of near-inactivity on my side, this build again introduces significant improvements (or so I think). As usual, it gives you security patches backported from the ASB up to May 2024. Beyond that, I finally upgraded the bundled version of WebView -- which had not been updated in 2 years -- to Chromium 124.0.636.82 (the version used by recent LOS 21).

  3. That confirms they never had working prototype. If they are going to have the first kick off meeting with the manufacturer during this month then the project has barely even started. Current schedule sounds very optimistic. The upgrade from Helio G88 to Helio G99 is very nice since Helio G99 is produced using TSMC 6nm process instead of 12nm (used in G88). The difference in power consumption is night and day. I have Qin 3 Ultra and KingKing Mini 3 phones and I can confirm the claim of better battery life. Qin 3 Ultra has better battery life even that the battery is smaller. It is still we

  8. They have said the new dimensions are closer to the Passport than the Key 2. Actually, the new changes make this more tempting to me. The elimination of a front facing camera is strange, but given the get away from social media aspect of their philosophy, maybe getting away from selfies is a good thing and you probably aren't going to use an eInk phone for Zoom. I agree, they are never going to hit September for delivery. They'll be lucky to hit Christmas. I predict post Chinese New Year.

  10. Oh, I missed the question...! There is a fairly easy way to statically add kcm files with the need to build and install a new apk after adding – not dynamically, though. https://community.fxtec.com/topic/3848-pro1-x-us-and-us-intl-with-dead-keys-keyboard-layouts-finqwerty/?tab=comments#comment-65908 I cloned FinQwerty, I think I modified pro1x_qwerty_usa_1.kcm because it had a bug, then I created a new kcm file pro1x_qwerty_usaintl_1.kcm (to use myself), added entries for the latter in generate_layouts.py and in the finqwerty_layouts.xml and built a new apk (using IntelliJ IDEA

  11. It seems they try to get money from other projects. Also, as shipping company has started to sell phones may result in the lack of enough phones left to be sent. Although they told shipping company does not sell client's phones, it may not necessarily completely true - they may not had the actual number of phones sold this way and they may counted with additional stock manufactured (over the necessary amount) will cover this kind of loss but final number of sold Pro1X this way was also continued after they told it does not affect client's phones. So in their last message, start of shi

  15. A new update. Changing things up again. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-minimal-phone-first-e-ink-qwerty-phone/x/17980121?secret_perk_token=aba958e5#/updates/all Apparently they will offer a choice of front camera or not (located in the lower left is odd). Also, though not in the update unless I skimmed too fast, on the Story page with specs it looks like they are making the Minimal logo button a touch pad. Eventually they are going to have to stop these design swings and get this thing prototyped. Lol. Right now they seem to have a Titan Slim with a Titan Pocket

  16. Well it's more profitable to sell them behind our backs instead of deliver them of course... Where was this 'pre-order bonus' mentioned? I don't want/need them, but I want to verify these were promised at some point in the campaign.

  18. I think you are right. If they only produced those 200 pcs listed in eBay then I understand why they did not deliver them since many people here did not even need/want those earphones (including me). However, if there is more units then it is little bit strange. Why not to deliver if they had produced them already? To my understanding the whole point of forgetting earphones was to cut costs.

  19. Interesting Minimal update. They have ostensibly, theoretically revamped the entire phone. The changes are too numerous to list here and the changes have angered some backers ("Give me back my money"), but I'm intrigued by the end result, if it happens. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-minimal-phone-first-e-ink-qwerty-phone?gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwhtWvBhD9ARIsAOP0Gog81m2pmAu5UUGZnnVEgkCnsJK290YNBNLpBgKvyKeR3cDz-lCRwfoaAn9wEALw_wcB#/updates/13

  20. Someone named fxtec_21 purports to sell 200 brand-new Pro1/X earphones on ebay: Fxtec In-Ear Earphones - Wired with built-in Microphone - 4 replacement Ear tips Strange, as those are (and afaik have always been) listed as out-of-stock on their own shop: https://store.fxtec.com/product/fxtec-pro1/ Not that I'd like to buy them (the shipping cost to continental Europe is 4x the unit price), but out of curiosity: Is this official?

  23. I have received my order from this seller today. I have ordered both displays with and without frame. The frame looks original part and display was declared to have small dots at the bottom. Also, these displays look like if they were prepared or more probably installed earlier in Pro1s. Original display has a blue foil to cover sticky copper part at a big area of its bottom as it arrives from manufacturer. Pro1's display originally has a black tape to cover most area of sticky part (after blue foil removed) and also a conductive tape for shielding display controller area.

  26. As I'm getting used to the new phone and mainly the keyboard, I've done some typing tests. At the moment, I am getting 300-320 (340 peak) characters/minute (German, including capital letters). This is good news since on my Pro1 I was at 320-330cpm with 370 peak (only English) and I'm only using the keyboard for around two weeks now. Especially the reprogrammed keys Ctrl right / Right shift help a lot. Currently, I'm already typing blindly quite often but I have to 'recalibrate' my position after deleting characters. The keyboard definitely has potential!

  29. Is it just my browser, or has the forum become public again? For some reason, my default browser had lost all its cookies, which logged me out of all websites, but https://community.fxtec.com right now showed me the complete original start page with all the latest "topics" before I logged in again.

  30. That would explain it. My guess is when I migrated from my pro to my pro1x, the settings for quickstep came along. So even though you can't set it, the behavior was still able to work on the Pro1X. Either Google's built in backup had the setting, or my restore from titanium backup did it.

  32. Yeah, I've been watching this, too. It's always good news from Minimal; I'm surprised they aren't just giving away the phones, it's all so generous. If it's a scam, it's an interesting one. Promise upon promise, even after the money is safely somewhere else...

  33. EDIT: Decided to finally clip this tangent off the Unihertz Slim thread, since I was kind of responsible for the tangent. :D Took me a couple of tries to figure out how "split" works, but I did it. :D I think THIS could turn out to be interesting (keyboard, Android 13, not good for graphic intensive games and video but can otherwise run Android apps and rootable/flashable). I might buy one if it actually becomes available off the shelf, but, no, I am not going to back it on IGG Not encouraging that they are still far from their goal and ordering has slowed down. Now the

  36. I remember it being promoted as well but not for Indiegogo. Instead, I think they wanted to send it to their very first 'Preorders' but they changed their mind quite early which was okay for us all. Nobody really wanted these earphones. I don't know if anybody actually got them since I believe somebody said that their quality was very bad.

  37. As far as I know, there is no solution for the Pro1x unless you have access to a Pro1. If you connect the display to a Pro 1, you can use the Pro 1 method of flashing/reflashing Stock Android 9 and then put the display back into the Pro1x and it will work properly. However, there is no patch we know of for the Pro1x using those displays.

  38. Not that I know of. I do assume they will still make some updates, though maybe not often, since they are still allowing pledges. They are clearly not answering questions much except to tell people they will send out Discord links for backers.

  39. ...and it also looks better from this viewpoint... So if they want to have a more general opening page where they can show their different products and smartphones are only one category of them, then it may be a good sign... 🙂 (So they may not want to shut down their smartphone business but extend (incorporate) their other product lines...)

And neither link has the videos, although they are still available HERE and HERE (on the second link you have to scroll down to find the take apart and repair videos).

  45. Not once did they ever mentioned website orderers anywhere, not even when asking them specifically about website orders, and only mentioned "backers" in their replies. Therefore, I can't reasonably assume anything else than that website orderers are f*cked.

  46. In principle, that would have been a good idea, but then again they never were shipped, as far as I can see... At least I never got the spare battery I ordered with the Pro1X I backed on Indiegogo.

  47. wut... you want to give the scammers more money? 5 months now since their last update. they don't even respond to this forum anymore. Casey is absent for like 6 months. It's clearly not a shipping issue at this point... I truly don't understand how some people are still defending fxtrash after years of bs. I wouldn't be surprised if this forum silently disappears one night to save on server costs. This forum is basically nothing but bad PR filled with complaints. Even if this it shows up it will maybe barely work for a couple years. There's no way this will h

  48. Of course much of the forum's content is not exactly helping the company's reputation, and with a public forum that content must have been showing up in all kinds of search engine results. TBH, I had been expecting them to do something about that rather sooner than only now. Maybe some inconvenient questions turned up in the context of their recent/current connection to that new "Clicks for iPhone" device (https://community.fxtec.com/topic/4062-self-built-slider/?tab=comments#comment-68348), and that drove them to take some action?

  49. It appears that the forum has indeed transitioned to a private mode, restricting access to registered users only. This change may indicate a shift in strategy by FxTec to mitigate public exposure of any issues. While it's understandable to feel disappointed by the lack of accountability and unresolved refunds, it's crucial to consider migrating valuable information elsewhere before potential closure. As for alternative devices, exploring options like the Honor Magic V2 could offer a fresh perspective and improved user experience.
