To anyone interested in the #Pinephone, or even the #Librem5 and #Linux #smartphones in general, we owe a huge debt of gratitude imo to #Megi.
He's not employed to do this, but donates hundreds of his own personal hours helping to get the hardware working, increase battery life (over and over) and generally make a huge amount of the smartphone progress we've seen, happen.
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:
This is the last week to pick up a #pinebookpro before production pauses on May 24th.

Information about production break: https://www.pine64.org/2021/05/15/may-update-connection-established/
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

Here are the full sources for the new LS1028A processor module for MNT Reform, designed by RBZ Embedded Logics (Madrid): https://source.mnt.re/reform/mnt-reform-layerscape-ls1028a-som#mnt-reform-layerscape-ls1028a-som
The chip on this module has dual ARM Cortex-A72 processors and 8GB or 16GB DDR4 RAM while keeping the Vivante GC7000L GPU with open source drivers.
If you want to have a cool #retroarch setup on postmarketOS edge like lazzardo, check out the new wiki page he wrote:
Most devices, like his BQ Aquaris X5, or the #pinephone and #librem5 need a touch input scaling patch. So he created one, upstreamed it to RetroArch and applied in Alpine 🎉
@linmob Question for next PineTalk podcast:
So, I ordered a pine phone from the latest batch, which is due to ship by the end of the month IIRC. The question is, what would be your top three recommendations of which OS to run on it and why?
I should also state that I really don't want to cause a flame war here, I just want to get an honest evaluation of the current state of the best OSes for the pine phone. Thanks in advance!
This blog is now hosted on the GPS/LTE modem of the Pinephone ! Very impressive feat

"phosh is graphical shell for mobile, touch based devices like smart phones. It’s the default graphical shell on Purism’s Librem 5 (and that’s where it came to life) but projects like Postmarket OS, Mobian and Debian have picked it up putting it into use on other devices as well and contributing patches."
