  1. Update: Until Februari 2023 I won't be able to dispatch out stickers and I'm not sure I'll watch the forum, but until then if you want stickers you can message @Hook to request stickers regardless of location :). They are still available and still free. Edit: do not be concerned, i'm just away traveling for a while :).
  2. The -X has a single stage button, I suppose the specs page needs updated. Can confirm the on the original pro1 first stage is rather devoid of tactility, works for me though.
  3. Because chat and forums are slightly different in purpose... Also we're mostly talking offtopic xD. Discord rather than other chat things because that's what caught on somehow (there are IRC and Telegram groups too but not very active).
  4. Since the Pro1X has started shipping, I'll bump this topic with the message that stickers are still available and until i run out of post stamps they're free of charge ;).
  5. You're a beast! I'm still stuck at 50WPM but I have been out of the game for a bit due to a dislocated thumb 😬 (no worries, it's fully recovered by now). For me what i'd call a "leasurely" pace would be 40-45WPM which I'm sure people can do on a touchscreen, but for me it's not even so much about speed, it's just way less frustrating and harsh on the fingers when there's some feedback rather than just hammering my thumbs on a pane of glass.
  6. hand! i feel like we'll have more eyes on this once the pro1x's go out πŸ™‚
  7. πŸ‘‹ I am not new but, hello all! πŸ™‚
  8. I had ripped the membrane on one of the buttons a bit like that when reassembling, but it was still good enough to work (all bits still attached). The second time I assembled i placed some kapton (mylar) tape over it to protect it from damage on assembly because I was quite concerned about destroying it further, this appears to have worked.

    Disabling 4G+

    I believe there's a setting in "settings -> network and internet -> mobile network -> preferred network type" that allows you to control this type of thing, the options there are cryptic to me though so hopefully someone with a bigger brain will also chime in πŸ˜…
  10. i got the normal "early bird" one after many refreshes
  11. Or someone has a bot that bought them all at once.
  12. + me + anyone i know that tried to go for the super early, did anyone actually get one?
  13. You are not alone. [edit: for those with the same issue, it appears to work after you retry a bazillion times]
  14. 9. If you managed to screw up the screw cover stickers send @netman a message :)
  15. Here is the keypad before sticking it to the phone:
  16. I have one phone i stuck an iphone 4 keypad to I found still in stock in a local webshop after a long search: I cut off the edge of the iphone case thing with a knife and put double-sided tape on there. Removing the case entirely wasn't possible as it's integral part of the sliding mechanism. It works allright but there only being a shift key on the left side is rather annoying, also it slightly interferes with the camera when closed but if I'd been more thoughtful before sticking it on there that could have been prevented I think. Also the keypad is quite low quality and it's
  17. If I understand it correctly, this happens because some firmware or parameters of the touchscreen has to be updated for the margins to be correct. There's a thread about it somewhere on the forum... It can be fixed by either: - reflashing stock firmware (which does the magic on first boot) - some illusive app which only works as root (you'd have to ask fxtec or someone else who has it to get that)
  18. This can be true, but I like to believe we're doing quite well at welcoming everyone on this forum :)
  19. Being in the UK does severely limit your target audience as basically everyone outside it would pay import duties as of januari...

    Pro1 Just died.

    It isn't easy to brick a Pro1 just by software indeed though, you'd really have to be trying.
  21. I've had mine just a bit over a year but don't recall the exact date of arrival, still the best phone ever <3. I feel compelled to share my stickers thread here :D.
  22. I think you get the wrong idea, topic titles sometimes disappear when @EskeRahn merges threads that are just saying the same thing but I've never known any posts to be deleted for being critical or negative while watching this forum pretty closely...
  23. Very happy they are useful :). All you who requested stickers: they've been mailed out and should arrive in approx a week :). More are still available to anyone who wants some.
  24. Say Pro1 ten times fast. I have not gone beyond disassembling the screen part, but I did take off the stickers on the keyboard corners for putting them in a scanner and testing my replacements. The best info about disassembly so far are these instructions IMO https://gelraen.github.io/fxtec-pro1-teardown/ also there's a document from F(x)tec themselves but beware this describes disassembly of pre-production unit where there are no stickers on the keyboard corners so it's different and taking the bottom half apart is different (i don't think you need a heat gun for the final units
