  1. 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

  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. 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...

  7. They alias Unihertz or they alias F(x)tec? ...just curious. 😄

  8. was more thinking that it´s a more relaiable source with a MOLEX connector that you can buy in a lot of different places, with short delivery lead time. I will order some from Mouser to test with. Looked a the USB-PCB from my crashed phone, if I could reuse that PCB to prepare it for a fast swap. But that PCB is quite bent, so I doubt it will work. //Per

  9. Somehow this situation brings Zeno's paradox about Achilles and Tortoise to mind. Closer we get to shipping, new obstacles arise but they are smaller and smaller.

  10. I'm really glad they're not giving up too, there was surely money to be ran off with when they didn't have any chips to buy so I might have been tempted. I'm not requesting a crystal ball "all devices will be shipped" date which would be pointless, all I ask is to replace "something" with "flashing", "packing" or "shipping" in the latest update. He must know what he's trying to book and that isn't affected by how much of a mess China is in nor how many times they've been bumped by a more important customer or due to stopping for bugs.

  11. Sadly the "question" was actually two questions in one and the answer wasn't clear. I guess a bit of manpower is needed for flashing but a lot more for packing so maybe there's a big pile of flashed phones ready to be boxed up. Or maybe there isn't. I don't understand why anyone would bother to answer without being clear, it's very frustrating!

  12. The second i've heard mentioned before. The first is new to me. Before the obvious suggestion of a factory reset, you might try to do a very long power-press, (about 10 sec) it seems to do a deeper reboot than just the ordinary 'restart'.

  13. Strange. I tested the usual fixes (restart phone, clear data, clear cache, reinstall Swiftkey...). I tried one more time removing and reinstalling Swiftkey and now it started working again.

  16. On my Pro1, all keys are intact but all of them are shiny. When I was holding a less-used Pro1 in my hands, I was wondering it was originally matte - it looked a bit strange for me at first. 😄

  17. it was issues getting them off, might be a bigger issue putting them back though 😁 I i belive the keys on a gamer keyboard is pushed a little bit more frequent than the keys on my phone 🙂

  18. Paint on gamer RGB keycaps doesn't last long and these will be hit by fingernails more often so chipping will surely be even worse. Maybe you could doubleshot with a burnably thin layer of black over transparent? Or depending how the keys work maybe you could paint and laser the legends on the back? I was considering chopping up my keyboard to create something as close to the ISO-Colemak layout I've been using in Sailfish for years but your idea is better 🤣

  19. I'm planning to cast key caps in transparent acrylic or epoxy resin, paint them black on the top and then laser etch the new characters on them.

  21. Two years later....BUMP! I guess this didn't happen, but if @Hyrum is still around, there are a lot of people who now own these things, and X variants heading out soon. Show of hands....who's still interested?

  22. Sadly, it seems I was mistaken. They apparently did not even start flashing yet, because the factory has no workers. I was under the impression that they had at least talked to the factory about flashing during friday before telling us that's their "tentative ETA". More delays to come, it seems. https://nitter.net/chenliangchen/status/1543191027879743489#m I hope they can at least sort the flashing during next week and (hopefully) shipping the week after, even though I have a bad feeling at this point.
