  1. Fxtec has confirmed that you can use external display with Pro1-X on Ubuntu Touch even so that the chip has changed.
  2. Are you looking for this? It is available at IGG with secret Perk!
  3. You have probably enabled "Power button ends call" feature from Accessibility settings. Disabling that feature should allow you to answer calls. However, I don't know what causes black screen.
  4. Thanks! I am always mixing GB vs Gb thing since in Finnish we have: - gigabyte = gigatavu (Gt) - gigabit = gigabitti (Gb)
  5. That does not affect to Snapdragon 835 directly since I don't believe that Qualcomm has manufactured these chips for a while. However, the situation might that the supplier sold rest of its SD835 chips to someone else if they were willing to pay more than F(x)tec. Maybe the price went up for old CPUs because there is global shortage for new chips. F(x)tec had already paid the chips before hand (maybe lower price).
  6. It is possible to upgrade the storage and RAM chip but you would need special tools for it. I have seen people doing it with Nexus devices. Also, RAM and CPU are usually tied together (soldered on top of each other) which makes it even harder process. Nexus 5 Hardware Modded to 64GB Internal Storage By Replacing eMMC Nexus 5X Hardware Modded to Upgrade RAM from 2GB to 4GB I checked what chips were used with the QX1000 test device for FCC. QX1000 Smartphone Teardown Internal Photos internal Photox FX Technology It had probably 4GB RAM and 64GB storage even so that Sams
  7. The situation is basically the same than previously. Pro1 price was about 700$ and you were able to buy SD730G devices about +300$ (like Mi 10 Note). You always have to pay some extra for the integrated keyboard. I am willing to pay that extra. Also, keep in mind that many sites have reviewed Poco M3 4/64Gb. If 6/128Gb unit was reviewed the performance was little bit better (also UFS 2.1 compared to UFS 2.0). 4Gb is quite little now days but 6Gb is OK and 8Gb good for everything.
  8. I think that you are doing just fine with SD662 for those tasks if you are not expecting most snappiest experience. I have checked few Poco M3 reviews (SD662, FullHD+ screen, 4/64Gb or 6/128Gb) and the performance is sufficient for everyday tasks. - https://www.notebookcheck.net/Xiaomi-Poco-M3-Smartphone-Review-The-150-Euro-smartphone.515467.0.html - https://www.androidauthority.com/poco-m3-review-1198097/
  9. Even so that Qualcomm would not support SD835 anymore it does not mean that SD835 is totally outdated. SD835 uses Linux kernel 4.4 which has long-term support to February 2022. Android users rejoice! Linux kernel LTS releases are now good for 6 years https://www.kernel.org/category/releases.html
  10. SD662 (Q1 2020) is almost the same chip than SD665 (Q2 2019). I think that both chips will be supported to same date. Same goes for SD732G (2020 Q3) and SD730G (2019 Q2). So, I don't think that there is difference between SD730G vs SD662 in the life cycle. And there is also SD720G (2020 Q1) which is as old as SD662. I think that it is all about the cost. Personally I would ditch 48MP camera sensor if that could save some money for SD700 series. But if the SD662 is the only choice then I take it.
  11. 720G is not a 5G chip. If F(x)tec would use SD720G, SD730G or SD732G they would not need to redesign antennas. However, I don't know if it would be as easy swap as SD662.
  12. @brunoaisWhere did you get that information about SD720G and 9 months timeline?
  13. Lineage OS developers can fix security issues from OS any time but vulnerabilities in the SoC code is a different thing. Qualcomm included SD835 in the security bulletins atleast back in November 2020. I don't know if that is going to continue anymore. Google ended support for Pixel 2 devices (same SD835 chip) in October 2020 but Pixel 2 Preferred Care customers will receive security updates to April 2021. So, there is still some support left from Google.
  14. This does not look good at all. Another delay for us is very frustrating and I am skeptical to the new timeline since there are so many changes. How they can manage everything? SD662 is a downgrade compared to the SD835. CPU performance is decent but its GPU lacks power. I think that they should have select SD730G (2019 Q2) or SD732G (2020 Q3) instead. And how about SD845? Geekbench 5 (single/multi): SD835: 393/1637 SD730G: 523/1677 SD662: 302/1398 3DMark SSE: SD835: 3127 SD730G: 2344 SD662: 1171 Worst thing is that Pro1 ja "Pro1-X" will be
  15. Does anyone know what is the situation with Anbox on Sailfish? Previously it was said that getting Anbox to work should be easy task. https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1559040&postcount=1816 Anbox is not as good as official Android support but better than nothing.
  16. Atleast Japanese tech site has received their unit. However, I don't know if it was from the Pre-Christmas Perk of something else. https://pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/topic/review/1297/422/
  17. At least one Pro1-X QWERTZ unit has been made so far since I saw a photo of it in Twitter. If there was a shortage of QWERTZ keyboard mats, maybe it is resolved now?
  18. The campaign is open for few hours anymore. I decided to take spare battery also so I can change the battery myself if ever needed. XDA secret perk seems to be still available.
  19. Latest news that I have seen but I don't know the details.
  20. That is not true. Initially it was clearly stated that you are able to cancel. Here is the quote: I don't know why that was changed before 11th December.
  21. Apps are using different ways to detect if the phone has been modified. Some apps check root and others bootloader or SafetyNet status. See my post earlier for more information. If you root your phone with Magisk and use Magisk Hide module you can make many apps to work. Then you can go even further and change the decive fingerprint to "Fxtec/QX1000_EEA/QX1000:9/PKQ1.190723.001/05500.20Q202:user/release-keys" from stock with Magisk Hide Props Config. After that trick the phone will pass SafetyNet check. There are also ways to patch custom ROM to pass SafetyNet but the trick has to be
  22. LOS 18.0 build for Pro1 can not be official until Lineage OS team has released LOS 18.0 officially in general. LOS 17.1 became official in April 2020 but I think that this time it might happen sooner. LOS has recently reached full force after rebranding (Cyanogen Inc. saga) From XDA to Cyanogenmod to LineageOS: A brief history
  23. I don't know about the microphone but there was thread about ear speaker. Also, you can find couple teardowns from here.
  24. @tdm Would it be possible to make AICP build with SafetyNet hack to pass the check? I know that there are some ROMs (like ParanoidAndroid) which passes SafetyNet check but I don't know how it is implemented. If you don't need root then you would not need to try any Magisk Hide things to pass SafetyNet. Currently I am running Havoc OS on my Xperia XZ1 Compact and it passes SafetyNet checks by default.

  25. Indeed, the refund option is now gone even thought it was there in the begining. It is little bit strange. I got the mail below when I backed the campaing. I think that F(x)tec has proven to be trustworthy in the past since devices has been delivered or refund given (thought waiting time has been long for both). I just hope that everything is still under control and F(x)tec is not financing old Pro1 orders with Indiegogo money. I still have full trust to the company. Also, they have XDA on board. I think that XDA would not participate if there was something suspicious. XDA has the
