  1. When I still had an official LineageOS, I was applying every weekly OTA and "su" would be preserved reliably. I never disabled encryption. Those were the days of AddonSU though, which was officially supported by LOS. Always remember that Magisk is a third-party tool before blaming the OS for it to stop working for some reason. Today I run my own builds which I install via sideload. This requires "su" to be reinstalled at every update ... one gets used to it. At this point, I would not prefer one ROM over another just for its ability to maintain root across updates. Let's face it: us roote
  2. Uploaded my LOS 16.0 build dated 20211017. AOSP patchlevel of October 2021. Contains a version of @Slion's experimental "Fn-Tab-as-Alt-Tab" mod as discussed above.
  3. Guys ... you do need to clean your gear from time to time! πŸ˜„ Ever heard of this (famously quoted in Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket")? Different device, same approach. πŸ˜‰
  4. This. That's also the most annoying issue I have with my flap case, which otherwise serves me well (see earlier in this thread). The strap is somehow always in the way, especially when taking pictures in landscape orientation. When opening the flap by 360Β° it is possible to get the strap magnet to attach itself to the flap "in reverse", which gets both out of the way. But you obviously can't take pictures in that configuration. What's more: in my case the magnet of the strap is exposed (i.e. not embedded in the leather, like in yours). Believe it or not, it has left scratches on the
  5. I am ready to help, but I would first need to know what you are failing at ... Please have a look at this post, and try to understand it, following the links I provided. The first step is to prepare an SD-card with a partition containing the GNU/Linux distribution. This is best done from an existing (x86) Linux-PC using qemu as described in the first link of my post. As most modern Linux distros are based on systemd (which cannot run in an Android chroot), I suggest Devuan which uses traditional System-V init. It is possible to change the init system also in vanilla Debian, but that
  6. You are right. But @Dyna Smart do not provide much details in their report: Replaced themselves or by FxTec? Source of the replacement screen? Installed OS? My experience is that, in lack of more information, you never know what people understand by "not working at all", especially when they are at a certain level of frustration. Hell: I myself have sometimes said my Pro1's camera was "not f**ing working at all!", although this is objectively far from true ... πŸ˜‰
  7. In case you replaced yourself: most spare parts now seem to require a firmware update for the touch function to work correctly. See this thread and the possible solutions discussed therein.
  8. Termux is a nice project and has some interesting features. But as an in-app solution, I guess it will always be somewhat limited. That is why I decided to install everything from scratch by myself. Note that, in the beginning, I also knew nothing about chrooting Linux distros on phones: the Pro1 is my first Android device. Do not give up! The reward for all the work and learning is that I have now a GNU/Linux distro running really in parallel to LineageOS, which allows me to use the Pro1 like an actual PC, while neither disturbing the Android environment nor depending on it in any way (e
  9. Nice job! Always good to see I am not the only one using the Pro1 as an actual computer ... 😎 By using XRDP as a wrapper around VNC, you can forward sound from the VNC session to an RDP client (I recommend MS Remote Desktop 8 as it seems to work best with the Pro1's keyboard). This way you do not need a separate XServer on Android, and the Linux session can run in the background when disconnected. I gave an overview about such a setup in another thread. I do not use termux, but I guess it cannot install XRDP and the required PulseAudio drivers for you. You'll have to do that yourself f
  10. Oh, I did read that. As I did read all the other announcements since 2019. I guess, for those who have followed FxTec's path for so long, there are only to possible outcomes: you become either a pessimist or a believer. πŸ˜‰
  11. With all due respect: I think no one here ever got their phone within 3 months. Even if mass production restarts in November, FxTec will be busy for months serving all the Pro1-X backers (and probably quite a few remaining Pro1 orders). If you haven't pre-ordered a Pro1-X already, I do not think there is any hope to get it in the first half of 2022.
  12. Confirmed on LOS 16.0: With NFC switched-off, no clicking when recording from the 3.5-mm-jack. Thanks for sharing!
  13. No, don't think so. Also the device-specific code has distinct branches for 16.0, 17.1, and 18.1. That patch of @tdm is proposed against 18.1. So if it is accepted, it will be only in there. Currently the driver in 18.1 is still (almost?) the same as in 16.0 and 17.1 so backporting the patch to your local 17.1 tree should be trivial. That may change in the future, as there are several proposals for improving the keyboard driver in 18.1. I am loosely following that development, but almost certainly will not backport everything to 16.0, as I am in fact quite happy with the current
  14. Try to be optimistic. Money is not everything. I paid my Pro1 (without the "X") also more than a year before I finally got it. Now that I have a real keyboard phone, I congratulate myself for the decision to preorder every day.
  15. Build 20210922 is available. It includes the September 5 AOSP security fixes. As of this release, the build includes a backported patch, originally made by @Slion for LOS 18.1, which allows one to use "Fn-Tab" and "Alt-Tab" equivalently for switching Apps (see this thread). I find that feature really useful when holding the Pro1 by the keyboard. I have used that modified keyboard driver for weeks without issues. Still, be warned that this code has not been merged into any official LOS branch yet, and should thus be considered experimental. Edit: I think I should clarify:
