  1. It is highly advised to take a backup of your device specific partitions right after you receive the device. Update 20220829: tl:dr: Community has not found a safe way to restore backups as of yet. Making below described backups is still highly advised for a future where some wizard found a reliable way to restore those backups. For now, if you have broken sensors from flashing another OS, the restorecon method described in the "Repair sensors/ folder..." section does 100% work to fix those while retaining your attestation keys. While restoring any backup has a high chance to make the keys

  3. NEW Version of guide here Below the original text: (above inserted by EskeRahn) If you're reading this, it seems like you miss the good old Android OS or you've accidentally fried your PrawnX already! Don't worry! We have your back. The link below is the full build of the Pro1X stock Android OS (v2.1.2): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1_sgQ64ef9Di9kJ63Y6WNqllGRgRFOjac?usp=sharing We are still compiling/drafting a complete user manual for flashing your Pro1X, but hope this helps you out for now.

  4. Hi folks, I just started working on the mainline kernel a few days ago with ichernev and so far I've got USB and simplefb up and going, no button, storage or regulators yet.

  5. Hi. We(me+Ichernev) are currently messing around mainline kernel on Snapdragon 662. We are going to submit some base stuff pretty soon depending how maintainers will go on merging simple compatibles. However we are working on other devices, Redmi 9T(me) and Oneplus N100(Ichernev). While progress is going to be slow we will get there at some point, one of harder things will be Adreno 610 support due to no GMU but i hope this will be done by SoMainline for 665 SoC so we just can pick it.

  6. While all our work is public, we don't necessarily post a neon sign saying, "Break ur phone here!" 😉 The Pro1-X work is moderately stable now and has been moved to the official LineageOS org on GitHub: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_device_fxtec_pro1x https://github.com/LineageOS/android_kernel_fxtec_sm6115 You are welcome to use these for your own builds, but please be prepared debug any problems yourself. There are a few outstanding fixes on our gerrit, esp. this topic: https://review.lineageos.org/q/topic:pro1x-old_kbd_driver Also, please remember that although we work

  7. Following @esialb's thread on Ubuntu Touch, here's one showing that SailfishOS works too: ——— Instructions: - First and foremost, backup your "persist" partition. Better safe than sorry. Instructions are in other guides, Please, do not skip that step, there is no other way back to the vanilla persist partition. - Download and extract the latest artifacts.zip from the SailfishOS port repository: https://gitlab.com/sailfishos-porters-ci/halium-qx1050-ci/-/jobs - Pick your clacky Pro1x, power it down, hold down [Volume -] and [Power] until it boots

  8. 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! 😄

  10. Please stop. You made your points, there are people here who invested in this project knowing that, you are doing a disservice to the intent of the project and to those that have supported this from the start, many of us have the Pro1 or supported it since then and see this is a project worth backing. You approach amounts to not achieving anything if whomever you are advocating for put money in through IGG then they need to read what that actually means. I have had my pro1 serviced and supported and I myself support the group even though the Pro1 is not my daily driver. But many of u

  11. Dear Community, I have just received my Pro¹X yesterday (photoed near a Pro¹): Its build quality is absolutely perfect, it has no rattling effect, buttons are even and not too loose (similar to Pro¹). Its colour is good - I like original black colour but this deep blue also looks good. I see there is some room for improvement at software side (and I have not used it extensively), but so far I don't see its radios are significantly worse than Pro¹'s radios (however, there are some improvements yet to be done). I feel keyboard's backlight is different - either Pr

  12. Since I ordered my first Fxtec phone, a Pro1, in Sept 2019 (which also seems to become the one to arrive last...) I've read everything Fxtec communicated (plus every comment in this forum), including a couple of personal mails from support, and while I've been having my doubts and a lot of bad feelings about the goings-on myself more than once, too, from all we know nothing of what they have said over the time can safely be called a lie. Wrong, overly optimistic estimates by the bucketful, yes, but really nothing where we can be absolutely sure they would have known beforehand that their annou

  14. Hey F(x)tec community! We thought it would be a great idea to invite Pro1-X owners to come join our beta testing scheme! We know our stock Operating System still needs optimising and requires further development, we believe with the help from our community members, it could speed up the progress of finding and fixing bugs/issues to provide you with a better user experience. Therefore, we created a Telegram group dedicated for users who are interested in testing new Android builds. Anyone with a Pro1-X will be eligible to participate in this programme. However, before you go ahea

  15. This is the complete guide on how to flash the stock ROM on your Pro1-X. We will be using the Qualcomm Image Flash Loader (QFIL) inside the Qualcomm Product Support Tools (QPST) pack to flash our XML-based stock firmware. Whether you want to restore your Pro1-X back to factory settings or fix a ‘bricked’ device, flashing the stock ROM back to your Pro1-X using Emergency Download Mode (EDL) with QPST/QFIL is the safest method. However, this process ONLY works on Windows PC. If you do not own a Windows Operating System computer, you may consider setting up a Virtual Machine (VM) on you

  18. 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

  20. This is the complete guide on how to root your Pro1-X with Magisk. Rooting you Pro1-X can allow you to 'unlock' superuser permissions along with flashing custom ROMs. This process will require you to have OEM unlocked before proceeding as we will need to use Bootloader mode to flash a patched boot.img from Magisk. It should take around 20-30 minutes for users who are new with rooting their phones. Instructions for unrooting your Pro1-X are also included in this user manual.

  21. I had this problem. I found I was able to set everything up by doing it with no SD Card and no SIM Card installed. I set it up over wifi, then I installed my SIM Card and SD Card. Everything seemed to work fine after that. I've been using it fine for a few days, now.

  22. Thanks for the work, people. Life got in the way here a bit. I did a bit of digging based on the rar shared in this thread by Kaali: The APK does seem to contain code to write config data to the chip (com.goodix.tools.ICParametersConfig.class). I attached a version of the *.cfg converted to decimal, separated by newlines. There are 239 bytes in total, which do not seem to map cleanly to the config information in the datasheet. I also attached a version of the flashing instructions with Google translations in them. I used the APK with my Pro1 in USB debugging mode, and after havi

  23. 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

Sure, F(x)tec has done mistakes during the journey but I think that they are trying very hard with limited resources. I received my Pro1 after long wait and during this week I am supposed to receive Pro1-X. Let's see how it works compared to Pro1.

  28. I was able to install and use Ubuntu Touch on my Pro1-X after locating the fastboot images on their development server: Jobs · UBports / Porting / Community Ports / android11 / Fxtec Pro1-X / fxtec-pro1x · GitLab. Unzip artifacts.zip for the most recent build, which will have out/boot.img and out/userdata.img.

  31. Your points are well-taken, even in your first post. I don't know what has been happening. I suspect they don't have a lot of money to play with, which might be why they couldn't hang onto that in-house person. I guess I just appreciate their doggedness to get us hardware in our hands that then may be able to become what we want. They crowdfunded a phone they had already designed and built with only more memory and Lineage and UT ready to go. Suddenly, they lost the SOC they had paid for and found themselves having to design a new phone in a pandemic remotely in China. I don't know m

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.

  35. Thank you for summing up. This is essentially the situation we are currently in. I am unaware of the price we sold the units to Expansys, but it is up to them to determine a price on these units once they receive it. At face value, our recent update might not have provided much, but we just wanted to address this topic to our backers in terms of the 'origin' of those units being sold and to reassure those units are not the ones they've ordered. This is completely false. Firstly, we most definitely appreciate our backers giving us the opportunity to kickstart our Pro1-X proj

  36. I 100% agree that running inside a chroot or LXC container is 98% of what people would need. But one thing I would gain from using a mainline kernel, is kernel updates almost in perpetuity, rather than running a container on a fork of a 4 year old kernel. Additionally, it provides a path forward in de-blobbing many of the drivers and features inside our phones, which is a security improvement. I understand that right now this is mostly philosophical and problems for future sspiff, but I've been into handheld Linux devices for long enough to have felt the pain of not being able to upgrade

  37. Nice! I just received my Pro1X (Black/6GB/128GB) yesterday, just unboxed it today and still haven't played with it much yet. I do have the original Pro1 and used the hell out of the thing. I installed SFOS, an Arch Linux ARM container and some apps, it's one of my favorite Linux PDA.

  38. Sorry, we'll just have to agree to disagree. Where you see "intentional false information," I see overly-optimistic estimations, which, when they don't pan out, they get beat over the head with it. No wonder they kept communication less frequent until they got close to a real production phase. And of course hardware "quirks" would affect software, if the software has to use that hardware that is being fixed. My guess would be a that pre-production models went out in June. I don't know this, but that seems to be about when hardware tweaking was mostly done and the big concern was g

  39. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) unlock is needed when you want to unlock bootloader on your Pro1-X. Although having access to bootloader can allow you to root your device and flash custom ROMs, the downside is that you will no longer be able to use Google Mobile Services (GMS) such as Google Pay on your device. We firmly believe that by allowing users with more access and control over their devices can help them achieve more, which is why we shipped our Pro1-X’s with “OEM unlocked” by default to offer convenience when flashing other OS’s such as LineageOS and UbuntuTouch.

  40. If you still haven't received one when all of batch #1 has shipped, you will have a reason to complain, and rest assured I will complain in case the phone I ordered in Sept 2019 won't come in batch #1, too. If you cannot contain yourself for the few more days that will take, all the more so after you have been waiting for more than two years now, your fuse it too short. And then tell us which other tiny, but "thriving" and "efficient" company has been denied an already promised supply of SoCs, making scrap out of their mainboard, in place of which they then had to create a completely new

  41. I found an easy way to fix this from any ROM, without having to wipe userdata. tl;dr: Edit: Make backups. It shouldn't be necessary, but you never know! Flash the 2020-08-25 stock ROM, but skip flashing/wiping userdata. More info here. Let it attempt to boot (for a couple of minutes). It (very probably) won't ever get through it, because the userdata partition wasn't wiped. This doesn't matter, though. It does flash the touchscreen firmware, which fixes the unresponsive screen edges. Edit: I did not time it, but I think I let it sit at the boot logo for 2-3

I signed up so I could thank everyone who has been posting the IGG updates here and bringing some transparency to this whole process. I originally ordered the Pro 1 because Verizon was barking that my old slider would not be supported and I would lose all service. Well, functionality has become more degraded and quirky, but I've been able to make it work well enough. I keep looking over my shoulder f

  44. I think the other thing to look at is their perseverance. Given IGG offers no guarantee of delivery, most, given the obstacles they hit, might have thrown up their hands and walked away. This small group of folks is making sure we get our phones come Hell or high water. I can't believe they are going to have ended up with massive profits. They are doing this for the love of keyboard phones and they will deliver. Thank you Chen and the rest!

  48. November 2020 backer of the Pro1-X and first-time poster here. F(x)Tec's February update on IGG says they are due to start manufacturing when Shiyan, in the Bao'an district of Shenzhen, "come[s] out of covid lockdown next week." I found this post on Baidu (in Chinese) stating that many restrictions in Shiyan were being lifted on 20 February, now two days ago. I think the speculation that the February update was written in relation to last week is correct. It's also possible that F(x)Tec really was expecting restrictions to be lifted next week, and it turned out they were lifted early

  49. To all who still struggle with this issue. People in the fxtec unofficial discord have discovered that flashing ONLY the vendor.img from the stock restore thread will fix the aliex screen issues and won't bork your LOS18.1 installation. For stock and earlier versions of LOS the apk still does the fix. We only have one person done it for now so not 100% guarantee though. Edit: According to feedback from other users this method didn't work. Stock restore thread

  50. They will tell us another story like in the last two years. It's only over when it's over. As long as they haven't folded, I'll keep waiting for my Sept 2019 order, and if it will be 2023. Until now, judging from all former experience, there is no reason to believe they wouldn't eventually deliver, as disappointing as such a delay is and as much as I understand everyone who'll say ok, then I'll pass.
