@nitrokey Hey NitroKey, as a #postmarketOS dev this honestly gets me a bit worried. I've seen several companies jumping on the "Linux on mobile" bandwagon without realizing what makes the PinePhone and Librem 5 so great: mainline Linux kernel support.

Just some screenshots of Shattered-pixel-Dungeon a fun little Roguelike RPG running on the #Pinephone
I showed this one before but I realized there is a .jar version in the LinMobGames repo now so you can use it on more then just Mobian. I just love this game it's not specially complicated but a ton of fun and I even played it before I had a Pinephone! :D

I'm personally extremely grateful and encourage everyone to donate at the bottom of his page here:
We are proud that mobian developer kop316 has now gone for a real fork of the unmaintained mmsd and will be trying to get it into Debian. Also @purism will be using his code on the Librem5. It goes both ways! This will hopefully become the basis for The Next Generation of mmsd:

i've booted mainline linux on this (ls1028a) but still working on the display pipeline, which is kinda nuts (mali dp->cadence mhdp (imx8 flavored)) and gpu (GC7000UL). so far:
- monitor/edid detected on DP and have mali dp fb0, but stays black
- etnaviv binds but MMU faults
on a positive note: lots of peripherals work and the cortex-a72s feel snappy
