  2. If you never got an auto-responder message, I would question they received it. I have always gotten an auto-response to a new email to [email protected] that was a new request (responses formatted with ticket number and "type above this line" don't get auto-responses). I have always only used the [email protected] address and have always gotten a real response from them within 2 weeks (it varies-- I've had responses within 48 hours... 2 weeks is the max). @Erik Any idea what's going on in these two cases?
  3. To be fair, that's Android 11 that messed that up. Lineage just seems to be using the same setup rather than modifying it. At least you can still get the full reset menu (system, Recovery, Bootloader).
  4. I jettisoned Microsoft Office and started using Softmaker Office years ago on Windows, Linux and Android. I have the full up paid version of the office suites for Windows and Linux. The old Android version was good but stopped being updated around 2017 and the cloud sync broke. The new beta for Android ia wonderful—I was involved in the beta test from the beginning. This allows me to keep my work in Dropbox and pick it up where I left off on any platform. They have done a masterful job. Upside: All but a few features will be free (IIRC, printing from Android, covert to epub and conver

    Also, be aware it's the device that is under warranty, not the specific user. If you or anyone else sells the device to another user, that user is still covered by the warranty.

    No, just an HTML formatted email right after I paid.

    Back on August 1st, 2019, I received an email invoice for my payment of my pre-order, but as someone who has used their warranty repair service, I never needed to use it. In general, they can access all your info using your email (presuming it's the same one you used when you purchased).
  8. Not long enough to be a firm answer, but it's been two months since my screen replacement (by them in London) and it solved my problem.
  9. There must be some way to get the security updates into older releases of Lineage. My old old Samsung Galaxy Tab S is still on unofficial Lineage 14.1, maintained my Dark Existence on XDA and continues to get current security patches. This is obviously not Lineage doing this, but it suggests the patches can be obtained and compiled into the OS. So the question (the answer to which is way beyond my pay grade) is can this be done for Lineage 16? Is there a source for the security patches or is the XDA dev extracting them from later versions of Lineage or... For reference:
  10. I suspect the parts are delayed because it is cheaper to order the parts when they are also ordering them for assembly of the Pro1xs at the factory... volume discount and all that.
  11. Not sure what you mean by "special care," Updating via sideload is: 1. Boot to recovery 2. Adb sideload (name of nightly update zip) 3. Reboot to recovery (this changes the slot to the slot where the new update was installed) 4. adb sideload current Magisk zip (no need to reboot to recovery after this step) 5. adb sideload Gapps package zip. 6. System reboot. I have no idea if steps 4 and 5 are necessary if you are just updating, but they take little time and they can;t hurt, so I do them. None of this disturbs your user data pr anything you already h
  12. Again, I've only ever adb sideloaded the updates, as well as reflashing Magisk and Gapps. It has always gone smoothly for me with both Lineage and AICP.
  13. I don't have experience with Magisk and OTAs although my impression has been that OTAs don't bother it. I sideload the weekly nightlies (I know, that sounds wierd) and after rebooting to recovery to change slots, I flash the Magisk zip. I don't think I have to, but I tend to be thorough, and it is so little trouble. I do the same with Gapps even though I don't think I have to.
  14. It seems to be pretty basic. Just the service framework, store stuff, google search. No calendar, contacts, maps, gmail, Chrome, etc. Anything you want to add you are left to download from store, but they aren't installed as system apps. It may even be equivalent to pico, Very few Google apps, which is what I want too. I don't use many Google apps.
  15. That must be a tiny hand holding the phone in the first image because if I put my hand around my Pro1 with the same hold, the Pro1 doesn't look any bigger in relation to my hand. 😉 Which is why I love the size of the Pro1 and have never been able to use portrait keyboards. But I'm really glad to see so many keyboard phones being attempted.
