  1. Hi all, I just updated to 20200831 by downloading the zip file from LOS website to my sdcard, and then applying the update via Recovery. This time around I tried opengapps 'aroma' flavour so I could tweak which google apps I really want. Turned out installing not much, and especially ommitting gboard so I could take advantage of LOS's AOSP keyboard (sticky Shift, SYM shortcut, etc.). So, if anyone is wondering whether they can use opengapps-aroma? IT WORKS. Oh, by the way. The Lineage stock apps seem to be cool. I ended up installing a minimal set o Gapps and feel good I did it
  2. Perfect, no use ordering the "frame included" version then. Thanks
  3. The one with the frame, includes the black "bezel" the glass is attached to. No frame: With frame: This is the Aliexpress link - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000523673519.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.69b03c00X4Hbs9&mp=1
  4. (Posting this on the screen protector thread and also the case thread because relevant for both). The quote below is from the screen protector thread: Here's a crazy idea. Maybe you could modify some existing cases for a fee? In my area (Brazil) the best fit I could find are cases for the MotorolaOne Vision (XT1970 is moto's code for this device). The back openings for the Moto One Vision case are a match for the Pro1 (even the Fxtec logo is visible as it is in the exact same place as the fingerprint reader on the Moto). What isn't right are the openings on the sid
  5. EDITED TO LINK BY MODERATOR: (to avoid having replies split in two threads..)
  6. Hi, I'm thinking of buying a couple Elephone U Pro panels as well. In AliExpress I found two options. One is the panel/screen only, and the other includes a frame. Which one did you order? From the photos on the listing it seems the Pro' does indeed use not only the same screen but also the same frame as the U Pro.

    Spare Parts

    After about 20 days use, today my Pro1 got its first "baptism". I dropped it on to the ground outdoors. I was standing on a concrete floor with a rough patch nearby. Needless to say, Murphy's law at work, the phone hit the rough patch . Nothing broke (phew!) but the aluminium back case got two ugly dents. I'm thinking of ordering a spare back shell for a future replacement (later on when it's more damaged from daily use). A screen replacement (Elephone U pro) is on the plans too, just to be a bit future proof, and if I found a battery I'd get one too. Does anybody know if F
  8. Any way to debug in case it fails next time? I'd be happy to provide any logs or data for a better insight on the problem. Thanks
  9. Thanks! Wasn't my first sideload (I had already flashed LOS) but it felt like the first, I got really nervous after my beloved pride and joy Pro1 refused to boot, and kinda got lost as to what to do next 🤣
  10. SUCCESS! I managed to install the update by flashing via Lineage Recovery / ADB sideload. For anyone who might be in the same pickle as I was, the procedures I described a few posts above were the solution. The most difficult part was getting to boot into recovery, I don't know why. I am sure I chose "Boot to Recovery" a few times at the bootloader but it never worked. What worked for me was the Power Button + Volume Up button method. Talk about relief..! 😁 TL/DR: 20200824 OTA broke my LineageOS setup. Fixed it by: 0) Downloading the latest (20200824) Line
  11. Is a reboot between sideloading Lineage and opengapps mandatory? I still havent sideloaded anything else than 20200824, waiting for latest opengapps to finish downloading (stock flavour is huge - 877MB).
  12. I got this a couple times too. Disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable a couple times solved it. Sideload is now going about its business (39% so far and counting). UPDATE: Apparently, sideloaded succesfully. ADB on the PC (linux) hung at 47% for about 2 minutes but the phone was going on about its business (Step 1/2, then Step 2/2, then finished). There might be hope for us? I still haven't booted because I'm waiting for opengapps download to finish. I'll sideload it again as per @Hook's recommendation. UPDATE 2: Sure-fire way to get to recovery for me turned out to be via
  13. I couldn't even get to the recovery. After trying a few times to reboot to recovery via the bootloader, I succeeded and got to LineageOS Recovery. I am now sideloading the 20200824 build via Recovery, will do the same for opengapps too. I dared not try to switch the slot because wasn't sure how I managed to get recovery to appear because it was refusing to at first.
  14. I am waiting for any help before factory resetting. It'd save me many hours setting up all over again. EDIT: If I reboot to bootloader and select "Boot to Recovery", I still get the error screen. So at the moment sideloading the update is not possible.
  15. HELP! The OTA update - 20200824 installed automatically but now the phone can't boot. The only thing I have done differently from the install instructions is I've used OpenGapps instead of MindTheGapps. After the update installed succesfully and prompted me to reboot the phone, I got a Lineage OS animation for a long time (about 5 minutes) and then an error message, something along the lines of "not possible to boot, you might try a factory reset" With options to either Try Again or Factory Reset. I rebooted into the bootloader and then powered off the phone from ther eto get to work
  16. I've seen the solution to this somewhere on this forum. Either on this thread or on the Lineage test builds thread.
  17. I bought one of those for travelling. I think the brand is AUKEY. It is rather large and heavy (which unconsciously makes us think it's a "quality" item...). So maybe not the first choice for someone who travels really light, but it has 2 2.1A green ports and one QC orange port. It lives in my travel briefcase. For everyday use my BB Priv's charger is plugged beside my bed and I connect the phone to it every night. There's and old dual-2.1A Moto X charger at the office should the need arise. And in the car I have a QC charger plugged on the cigarette lighter, but that guy hardle ever sees
  18. Yessir, I already did that! Am just giving it a few days to have a larger data sample. 👍
  19. Yeah, each one has pros and cons. I chose OpenGapps for GCam. Snapdragon camera got to my nerves after 2 days of Stock ROM.
  20. Hmm. I found AOSP keyboard on apkmirror, installed it. It just crashed every time. Oh well...
  21. @EskeRahnI don't know when (if ever) I'll be able to be as frugal a phone user as you! My main battery eaters would be the screen (thanks for the tip about blue colour) and Firefox. I tend to do a lot of webpage reading. Besides that, I have DAVx5 syncing my contacts, calendar, tasks, etc.; Nextcloud client; K9 Mail with a 15 minute interval on two IMAP accounts; and cLock from LOS is in my home screen with a weather forecast which is regularly updated (I think every 30 mins). Apart from these, I can't think of any other apps I set up (apart from all the LOS/system tasks of cour
  22. Oh right, I installed a more complete flavour of OpenGapps (it's called "stock") and I got Gboard instead of AOSP. So I'll get around to installing AOSP keyboard. Thanks for the tip!
  23. How to activate it? I'm on LOS and am also missing the sticky shift. Thanks
  24. This is a recommendation I make to all my friends irrespective of the brand/model they buy. Especially because for a while now almost 100% of new phones come with QC chargers. These are a great way to make the customer wnat to switch phones after a year's use!
  25. I haven't made any measurements but can confirm that being positioned in the very same spot of my desk as the previous phone (Motorola One), the Pro1 has a weaker connection to my office's AP/router. To the point that sometimes the connection drops and it starts consuming my cell plan's megabytes. The Moto never dropped the conection while in this exact same spot, and always had a strong signal (the wifi status icon would always be 75% full at least).
