And the initial boot-up with a keyboard slide:

Have flashed and reset so many times with early software, I never realised that the initial start-up is just 1 minute if you skip all the wizardry. πŸ˜„

Most of the delay probably was to make that android launcher landscape compatible πŸ˜„ I am looking forward to not needing 15 minutes to enter my wlan password πŸ˜„

Actually not ALL steps are, as I recall it.... πŸ™„It is really odd the Android offers this half heartedly landscape support, that is there for some things but not others...

I mean that F(x)Tec needs to add a custom launcher to support landscape is ridiculous....

How about a Sailfish flashing Video? πŸ€”

I just keep finding that mandatory "Accept Google services" part a bit disturbing.

We will prepare formal technical docs very soon, with info on how to flash your device, etc.

Yep, we'll soon make formal, well-illustrated docs in our new support page. Quick sneak peek of what we are working on:

There will be Lineage OS as well, to run on Pro1 so there will be plenty choices for that. πŸ˜‰

I think this is the first time I've heard some noise from the Pro1 speakers. Are those in any wayΒ decent? I'm kind of used to any kind of smartphone in various price ranges to just have terrible audio quality once you go past a certain volume level, but there might be physical constraints with them being super flat, power, or whatever. I likely missed out on exceptions, but people in this house have Samsung, LG and OnePlus stuff... and they don't really shine there.
How is it looking on the Pro1 end?
The best phone speakers I've heard personally were the speaker moto mods... but those were pretty fat and came with their own battery to drain from after all.

Also, the "powered by Android" is not consistently positioned between the static and animated boot-screen. Literally unusable :^)

Is it official lineageos support or just an unofficial port for now? There is no mention of lineage anywhere on xda or even the lineageos site about this device

I will leave this to be answered by Developers from Lineage OS. I think it would be very likely, as our Lineage OS developers are very well known and experienced. They have been of great support so I would hope at a certain time while the device hits a wider user group it would be likely to happen!

Wow this phone really is the dogs bollocks. Can't wait for some indepth independent reviews to kick in :) I sure hope tech sites/influencers have ordered theirs in the first batch :)

I'm very glad to see these videos, because I'm excited for the device, to get my own, and for it to sell well.

But as a general point, is anyone else as puzzled as me why 'unboxing' videos are as popular as they are on youtube?

Why is there such a buzz for what is surely theΒ least interesting part of getting a new device? Show me it working! Show me it from all angles! But only show me the plastic wrapping or peeling off stickers if you're trying to get me to sleep...

I never really understood that either. So just made a series of single images, so people can browse quickly over in seconds and only investigate whatever they want to see,
