  1. More than one 😄 There are places where i have to be and my good old Nexus 6 has there good mobile signal level and reliable mobile broadband network connection. Unfortunately with Pro1 I had none of these... 😞
  2. Just out of curiosity - now that December is over - has anybody got his/her Pre-Christmas Pro1 X 128GB; $749 USD; €617 EUR; Estimated Shipping December 2020; 10 out of 10 claimed?
  3. Be aware, that the cLock widget was not ported to LineageOS 17.1 - in case you are afraid that you are starting to miss it... 😄
  4. Well, my only intention was to help to make his/her posting understandable unequivocal 🙂 Thanks for pointing out the quotation mistake - corrected for now.
  5. Sorry, couldn't resist 😄 I guess you wanted to say: "But I cancel my order within 9 days if I don't have an email from Fx that my order is ready to ship."
  6. Still available... 🙂 There were 2 interested persons, who were not able to perform a bank transfer and one person who stated that the warranty is almost over as the phone was ordered at February 28th 2019. And one Blackberry user from Tallinn who is fond of phone keyboards but preferable the Blackberry ones 🙂 I know - transferring the money and then waiting for the parcel to arrive needs a certain amount of trust, but when you pre-order the Pro1 from Fxtec the situation is similar. Hereby I remember selling successfully my Nokia N900 to fellow TMO user from Italy. But I have a t
  7. Install LineageOS! It is just plain Android without Google "features" 🙂
  8. Interesting - shouldn't the A/B slot system be for just these cases - updated slot fails to boot and you can boot the previous slot which is still OK (without the update)? Can you switch the active slot at bootloader mode to previous one and try to boot that one?
  9. AFAIK it is still "alpha" or "work in progress". Do not expect the current community port to be an official one - the probability for that is very-very low. If you need Android applications then run Android (or LineageOS). If you like Linux and are ready to live with some limitations, then try SailfishOS - maybe it suits your use case. And don't forget to give something back to the SailfishOS community - at least bug reports are welcome 😄
  10. With the arrival of official LineageOS I gave my Pro1 a test run for about a week. No other complaints but a mobile reception sensitivity. Usually it is OK, but in some places where I have to be, there is no or very fragmentary mobile data connection. In comparison - my Nexus 6 has reliable connection there. I can't use Pro1 as my everyday phone and retire my Nexus 6. So I'll renew my sale announcement: F(x)tec Pro1 QWERTZ; Model: QX1000; S/N: fxtec000236 In original box with all included accessories (charger, cable, pouch etc). No pictures needed as you still can't differentiate it
  11. SailfishOS can be seen as a Linux distribution (Android uses Linux kernel too). Only thing where it relies on Android are Android drivers through libhybris. Certain Android Apps can be run in SailfishOS using an emulator and it is possible and officially supported only on certain Sony Xperia models - so no go on Pro1. The overall state of SailfishOS on Pro1 is a community port in alpha stage. Many thanks to those making it possible (the same goes to LineageOS porters)! Could SailfishOS on Pro1 be used as a daily phone? Well - it depends. Give it a try but don't hope you can fin
  12. Is there a particular reason for that? Moving Gapps and other addons? My Nexus 6 with no Gapps usually performs an LineageOS OTA update in 2-3 minutes.
  13. Temporary because the following updates already include boot.img. You made an inaccuracy here, according to the install page: fastboot flash boot <recovery_filename>.img It does not matter to which slot boot partition it is flashed if it is install and not a update.
  14. Something is up already: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/pro1 👍 Edit: since July 18th there is a thread at Lineageos reddit.
  15. Well, if somebody asked my opinion, then I'd put all efforts to get the official LineageOS for Pro1 out. It is always possible to tweak things later, make test builds and discuss them here etc...
  16. Did you mean "x on the Mobile Data" ?
  17. At least not the test18.zip. adb sideloading is just a different method of "flashing" as I understand it 🙂
  18. When I last tested it in the middle of June - my results were the following...
  19. Shouldn't you flash the permissive image after you flash the test18 image? Currently it seems that you just proved, that there are no problems with test18 image and if there were any, they were resolved with factory reset? Of course, I could be totally wrong how I'm understanding the situation...
  20. Could not confirm here. At first just flashed test18 over test17, but then rebooted to recovery, Wipe data / factory reset, sideloaded test18 to another slot, booted to initial setup and it passed the wifi setup with no problems (no sim card) and internet connection was present (time was updated). However - no gapps here.
  21. Confirmed here also. The upper row (numbers etc) is OK, but all other rows are shifted and yellow arrow (Fn) key does not always correspond to what is printed to the keys even if the shifted situation is taken into account.
  22. I'm wondering, what unit it is when you are talking about current? Current is measured in amperes (eg 1.5 A) but you are writing here "...with a maximum current of 1.5C."? Let's be correct and precise, gentlemen - it's physics 😉
  23. As a long-time KDE user - Plasma Mobile. But until that: LineageOS with no Gapps 😉 I also keep my eye on SailfishOS and Ubuntu Touch & ubports.
