  1. Services might get terminated more aggressively causing some apps to harass you less promptly with notifications I guess.
  2. I am not up to date due to I can't update my patched rom without erasing userdata xD. Not entirely sure if I am lacking the vignetting patch or it is just the lighting (i don't really notice it in other photos. or this one before it was said for that matter).
  3. with the stock camera app click here for original jpeg
  4. That does make this sound a lot like a software issue, I haven't been able to reproduce it however.
  5. I also have one, but it is most definitely not for sale.
  6. Try the contact form on the website, they might not be receiving your e-mails for whatever reason. People that requested refunds before did receive them.
  7. I'm no longer missing my n900, and definitely not the dumb slab phones I used after it :)
  8. Alas no, we are waiting for a TWRP that can decrypt first. Until then TWRP is only really useful for SFOS users.
  9. We're getting a nice slider keyboard phone for the first time in 5 years (more if you don't count blackberry), and all some people can do is complain it's too little too late... Unless you have some very special needs SD835 is pretty damn good for quite a few years to come, miles better than anything mediatek and the likes have to offer today.
  10. The diodes are the only thing missing, but your belief is not fully correct. The limitation with having no diodes is that if you press 3 keys that are in a rectangle on the matrix for example something like this: Where A B C are the rows and 1 2 3 are the columns of the matrix and the red dots are pressed buttons, where the row and column are connected together by the switch. Then C and 1 are also connected together because row C is connected to column 2 which is connected to row A which connects to row 1. From only having GPIOs connected to each row and column it's impossible to tell which 3 of the 4 connections are actually pressed (or if there is actually not 4 keys pressed) from my logic. From the order in which things happen you can know the first 2 keys that where pressed, the latest driver should have no trouble with those. When there are not 3 keys that are corners of the same rectangle on the matrix (say you'd press B1 instead of A1 in the example) there is no such problem and all 3 keys will be easily detected. For some details on the Pro1 specifically, the chip in charge of scanning is an AW9523B in a simple 8 by 8 matrix, and I managed to get the multiple keys to work by instead of controlling the output side of the matrix as a push-pull output controlling the data direction with the output register set to 0 so that during a scan 1 of the 8 lines is configured as an output and all the others are a high-z input. The way the matrix is laid out IMO is adequate for pretty much any use, like for games you can have easily enough combinations to do diagonals with two key combinations on the left side of the keyboard and some action keys on the right side (note that rows and columns on the matrix don't map straightforwardly to rows and columns of the keyboard). Another saving grace is that all the modifier keys are independent (they're not part of the matrix and just go to a GPIO on the SoC). Strangely the chip has a port that has actual open collector outputs, but that's the side that has the pull-up resistors so we can't really use those straightforwardly, but it doesn't matter given the trick mentioned with switching the pin directions works equally well as an open collector output (even in software it's tidy since the output direction is just a register with a bit for each pin you can use as if it was the output data register). Also note that the Gemini, Cosmo and Titan use the same AW9523B chip in a similar arrangement and they suffer from the same limitations as far as I know. Please do point me to that application note if possible, if there's tricks that I don't know I may have to get to work... 😄
  11. When i wrote that I didn't realize the keyboard is where all the things are attached to. No need to further disassemble for the sake of photos, I hope you get a working one again soon :).
  12. If it is not too late an single picture from less close by showing the entire opened part of the bottom half would be nice, same for the screen side and bottom of keyboard. Thanks very much for documenting this :). Surprisingly little damage visible from the water.
  13. This was indeed fixed with a software update as was stated: The updater is pretty quirky though, it may only take effect after a reboot and also it may tell you are up-to-date and then change it's mind after reboot. To make sure you have the latest tell it to update, reboot, repeat. I am certain the code was changed as I am responsible for that (for the multi-key support in keyboard that is) :P. Any combination of 2 keys should work, the modifier keys like ctrl, alt, shift work completely separately. Combinations of 3 or more keys depend on which keys they are as to whether they will work, and this isn't fixable in software. If you want to know why that is look up how anti-ghosting works and be aware that there is no diodes in place to do N-key rollover.
  14. I think fxtec has to follow you also before a DM option will appear. @Elysia
  15. I've only played with Cosmo for a while but own Pro1, my observations from that: Pro1: faster nicer SoC, smaller form factor, only really suitable for thumb typing but really nice feeling keyboard. Definitely my favorite of the two because I primarily want to use it where I don't have a table to sit it on and type with thumbs. Also the way it snaps open/closed just makes me feel happy. The curved screen is the biggest downside in my opinion, it's harder to protect and more prone to impacts due to covering two sides of the front with glass. Cosmo: sadly mediatek SoC, very big phone, keyboard more suitable to 10 finger typing because of key size and type (much bigger travel when pressing) F and J keys are lacking identifying nub, keys are very prone to toppling over when not pressed straight down, thumb typing possible but not nice. Also I find the keyboard layout weird but you'd probably get used to that fast enough. Build quality seems better on the Pro1 yet you can close Cosmo and have the screen not exposed which probably makes it less fragile than Pro1 in that mode. It's really up to preferences what is the best one for you though.
