  1. It is more likely stock was never updated because they no longer had the services of the contractor who was responsible for the OS on the Pro1.
  2. Honestly, your best shot is to pay for the tech bundle on IGG (an extra battery can't hurt) as they are unlikely to have any to sell as spare parts before those go out. They originally said their intent was to send all perks for the same person at the same time. Not sure if they'll keep to that if the orders are made far apart in time. That's of course the display in the whole frame assembly. If you just want the display you probably have to go the AlieExpress route as I don't think FxTec has ever made just the display available.
  3. Yes, it should be covered by warranty. Looking at thew Wayback machine, the 2 year warranty was listed through at least March 4th 2021: https://web.archive.org/web/20210304055614/https://fxtec.com/faq It was only sometime after that, showing up in the archived page for April 11th, that the policy was changed to a 1 year warranty (made, I think, when they changed the Pro1x from a 2 year warranty to a 1 year warranty-- there probably weren't any Pro 1s being shipped by this time. https://web.archive.org/web/20210411034712/https://fxtec.com/faq
  4. I doubt they have had any replacement screens (or any other parts) since at least October, probably earlier. When everything gets sorted out (having parts delivered to factory, inventory, identifying parts for Pro1x manufacture, and separating out spare parts for parts pledges on IGG and repairs), they will finally get to the repair tickets. Since everything is ordered in bulk and sent to the factory, I don't think there is a way to tend to repairs first as ordering those parts separately and having them shipped to the UK might allow, They don't like giving updates when there is nothin
  5. I have no doubt they will honor their agreement that it is a warranty repair (as they did for my Pro1). What will be interesting to see is if any problem turns out to be a problem with the motherboard. I am sure they have no replacement motherboards for the SD835 Pro1. So, does that mean replacing the Pro1 with a Pro1x? My last communication, March 1st, was that they would contact me when they had an update on my repair. As I said above, I'm pretty sure there will be no update until the Pro1x is being produced and shipped because they would order everything all at the same time to
  6. @agent008 I have never heard of an OTA being needed or used if the 20200825 version of stock was flashed. It should have the fix. There was a file floating around with files from BOE that could fix the margins of the new display on Lineage 16-17, but I suspect, as @Rob. S. suggested, you are dealing with a different problem. Last November, my original, factory installed screen stopped responding to any touch. I checked the connections. They seemed good. So I had a local shop that is very good replace the screen with a new AlieExpress screen. Still, no response to touch. That tends t
  7. Thanks. I wasn't asking for release date... I know better (spending a few years with Dirty Unicorns gets you well trained 😄 ), I just wasn't skillful enough to locate any indication of activity. Don't care when, just happy it's in good hands. Thank you!
  8. Sean, do you have any input for my query near the top of this thread... what is the state of LineageOS for the Pro1x? I know the Pro1X hasn't hit the street yet, but I believe it is in production.
  9. I don't know what shipping costs they use on their website. On IGG, we were given a flat shipping cost of $40, which I think is similar to what they did for the Pro1 in their store, but it has been a long time. Based only on what they did for the Pro1, they will likely ship from Hong Kong using couriers. I'm in the US and they shipped my Pro1 from HK via FedEx. But I'm only using past data, I don't know anything specific about the Pro1x, but this is what I expect.
  10. Production does indeed seem to be starting...
  11. It's always hard to know, but right now they are still within the timeline of their last update. Even if they began SMT the same day they posted (probably not), that would take them out to the 24th and thus manufacturing might be beginning this week. So possible for shipping to start in mid-May as projected.
  12. I wish we would hear something about Lineage for the Pro1x, given they are allegedly shipping soon. @tdm @npjohnson Is there any news on the Pro1X front, or are you bound by an NDA?
  13. As I recall, when I ordered my Pro1, it stayed on a status they called "processing" (iirc, been a long time) until it actually shipped, fulfilling the order. I assume you are talking about an order on their web store, not IGG.
  14. </fantasy on> I wonder how hard it would be to resurrect the keyboard mod as a back case add-on (pogo pin interfce) for the Pinephone. Would probably have to work with one or more distros like Mobian and/or ManjaroArm. </fantasy off> Pine would probably resist a third party accessory that is better than theirs. 😉
  15. Nice! Here's the US link, which does have stock. https://amazon.com/Phone-Holder-Mount-Bike-Handlebar/dp/B085DMV7XD
  16. The 20200825 update is linked in the update of first post of this thread: Here is the direct link to the download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lEc-ummPsamKDWHpoJP6YJcH6IYS4abe/view I don't know about the OTA service in the stock Android 9 ROM, but I believe it was set up (and the updates were handled by) a contractor that is (I believe) is no longer handling things for FxTec (another reason for no further updates). They have said the Pro1x updates will be handled by Google OTA, so the Pro1x should fare better. F(x) Tec has definitely not gone out of business.
  17. The price in IGG is for a bundle that includes not only the Pro1X, but also a spare battery and a spare screen assembly (not just the screen, but the frame it is mounted in). You have to click to expand the perk box to see the list of what's included.
  18. Actually, I received the headphones also. 🙂 and no, I wasn't a moto mod backer (would have been if I had known before it was cancelled.
  19. Yes, that's been clear for quite a while, but good to have a definitive statement. Luckily, Lineage provides the updates for the Pro1.
  20. It is appreciated. Unfortunately, my Pro1 is still in the shop so I'm out of the loop right now (not suprisingly, nor unexpected—knew it would take time when I sent it in). I'm always happy to see it is still going. Looking forward to getting back and hoping, maybe, there might be an AICP for the Pro1x eventually.
  21. Very interesting. Your link does what I say in both FireFox and Edge on my laptop (which is where I've been reading this forum), but your link works perfectly in FireFox or Fulguris on my Moto phone (Pro1 is still in shop). Have no clue. But not a big deal enough to keep at it. Just puzzling. 🙂
  22. That's the url, but that's not where it takes me. Takes me to the QX1000 page. <shrug> That is, the url https://fccid.io/2AUCLQX1050 forwards me to https://fccid.io/2AUCLQX1000 If it does differently for you, I'm stumped.
  23. So, it's weird. Your interior photographs link takes me to the right place, the QX1050 interior photos under "label and label." But VaZso's link takes me to the QX1000 page, which seems to be the Pro1, If I go to the top bread crumb, FX Technology Limited, I see the QX1050 link with the 2022 date, but when I click on the QX1050 link, I am also taken to the QX1000 page, which is the Pro1. I can't find any link that takes me from the QX1000 page to the page with the interior of the QX1050 that you posted and if I click the QX1050 breadcrumb link on that page, I am back on the QX1000 page.
  24. I'm not sure, but all the dates are 2019. Seems to me this is the original Pro1?
