  1. Thanks for trying it @GoaSkin! I remember that I wanted to try it myself some weeks ago as I did on the Pro1 back in the time with that small PR, but got sidetracked to other time sinks and then simply forgot because I don't play much video outside of my LXC container. Great to hear that it (kinda) works.
  2. I updated the flashing instructions in the FP to use Adam's kernel.
  3. harbour-containers is now in the Chum repository, hence easy to install! Please let us know if there are any issues (but check the known issues first), preferably as issues in the repositories so that we get notifications. It's only tested by me so far, and on a single device, so I hope it will work well enough for other devices.
  4. I experience the issues with rebooting the phone when Waydroid has been started (and also the whole OS freezes when we close Waydroid), but I do not have to redo the chmod step at every boot, there must be something missing in your initial Waydroid installation.
  5. I got sound working in LXC! I will now try to make that work in the default install and then the app shouldn't be far from hitting the Chum repo for easy installation, but it'll be some work to automate that.
  6. We should know by tomorrow if Adam's kernel update works out of the box, with even an install script to simplify the process. I'll post an update here and edit the FP when this is confirmed. No need to back dtbo up, it's not unique to devices. Yeah, the video (playback and recording) problem is a known issue, it's listed in the FP, but I don't know if Adam knows where it comes from (or if it is a priority). I expect it may just be some configuration file to edit to properly set hardware decoding/encoding, but I am not sure. I really want to get audio working in LXC because this would
  7. Ha, I was about to reply, but I recognize this excerpt above. 👀
  8. Yes, this is expected with the UT kernel and current SailfishOS configuration. What happened is I submitted a PR to the Sailfish configuration that aims at complying with Adam's kernel, but the things that changed work in the opposite way with UT's kernel. So, if you are using the UT kernel (current instructions in the FP), then you have to revert the changes in these two files (edit them so that they look like the left panel): https://github.com/sailfish-on-fxtecpro1/droid-config-halium-qx1050/pull/4/files Alternatively, you can try using Adam's kernel, which allows using Waydroid,
  9. I'm not a Windows or Mac user, but I'm pretty happy that we have two tools at hand, including one that's multiplatform, fully open source and based on an open source language. The alternatives to that would either be (i) nothing or (ii) proprietary software, which I would view as a much higher "infection" risk. I mean, at some point we'll have to install something on our machines to perform operations to reflash our Pro1(x), there's no other way, and them being flashable easily was one of their selling points. Python also is a language that can easily be containerized in a virtual enviro
  10. Camera works for still images, calls work, WiFi works (but see potential issue in the FP), texts work, MMS work, F-Droid works in Waydroid but I couldn't add custom repositories because F-Droid would crash, I have not tried Google Play apps. Copy/paste works fine in Sailfish, what's difficult is to transfer the clipboard from native apps to Alien Dalvik or Waydroid ones, or to LXC of course. I remember that copy/pasting from emails was not trivial (we had to go into edit mode to copy text), I don't know if that's still the case because I read my emails in my LXC container now.
  11. For me with SFOS, the first command was necessary, or the second would have no effect at all (device would boot when plugged_. On another device with Droidian, even using the two commands had no effect, so perhaps it's OS-related, in which case I suppose Android only requires the second? I don't think the first one hurts anyway, so it might be a good idea to advise it if some OSes need it. Also, I got that from Tadi who has absolutely all my trust. 😮 After asking why the second command didn't work for me, he immediately replied that another one was missing. I didn't think about it much fu
  12. I've opened Pro1s but don't really remember, and it could be a tad different here anyway. What I know however is sometimes the FPC were not perfectly connected, but not necessarily completely disconnecter either. This happened to me after a soft fall when the USB charger was plugged, which applied some force to the USB board and probably disconnected it a bit. After that, several things stopped working, including I think the microphone or the bottom speaker. Reconnecting the ribbon cable fixed it. I can't tell however if the same could happen with backlight. In general, unless you really
  13. Can you make sure you used the Pro1x image and not a generic one? I used a nightly build and it worked with no issue here, but the release 15 days ago should be even more stable so all should be alright if you used that.
  14. I wanted to do it on mine but that didn't work, an extra command is required when in bootloader mode: fastboot oem enable-charger-screen fastboot oem off-mode-charge 1 (Thanks Tadi.)
  15. I have Droidian on a Pro1 since last year, and on a Pro1x since last night. Droidian hasn't been a daily driver for me (mostly due to battery life and the fact that I'm not friend with the ergonomics of Phosh) so I don't know everything about it, but feel free to ask questions. I have played with it somewhat actively last year to get alternate WMs working (Sway doable with some work, and with issues, i3wm doable too with a X hack), LXC (doable with Sway as WM but the keyboard mapping caused issues for my keybindings), Waydroid (Droidian may have the best support for it), or simply install
