Hi again,

Received my Astro yesterday, 6/24....only took 2 years, 3 months...

Pretty nice so far....

Bit different than using Cosmo....for both physical design and different version Android reasons.

So, in process of getting used to it....

Display is bright, sharp with vivid colors.

Keyboard is good of course...

Will report with more info after using it a few days....



On about June 9th, I saw my status changed to 'Locked' !


Although have not received any email from PC saying my Astro has shipped or a tracking number....

So it goes....



Hi John,

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your input and thoughts....

The Zaurus was great and remember using pdaXrom along with other OS's.....those were the days.

It was a few years ago that 'InSearchOf', the developer popped in and said he might do some updating on it, but unfortunately, don't think he ever did.


Maybe you'll have better luck.




Just noticed your post now....

Sounds good....

Thanks for doing this!



Hi Conrad,

It's been years now since I had my 3200, but as I recall I had no problem replacing drive with something like a 8GB CF card.

Since it's been so long, I can't recall for sure whether I duplicated the drive onto the CF card or flashed it.

Changing drive is doable, but please be very careful when you do it so as to not break any cables, connections, etc.



Given the recent update and PC history on the prior devices and Astro, I'm amending my previous guess (in post up above)....

I now assume that I might see my Astro in February....hopefully, latest date will be March....

Welcome to the Cosmo club....

Sorry to hear you have screen problem.

I have not had this problem on my Cosmo that I have had for 1.5 years or so.

I would contact Planet Computer and report the problem and ask for their support.

Did you buy this as new Cosmo or used one?


Based upon PC's update today, that production should start after the Chinese holidays, so about October 10th....

I guessing we'll be lucky to see our Astro's by Christmas....and might be after New Year........

So it goes.....

Sorry to hear that it didn't help.

Did PC offer to repair it if you were to send it to them?

What was PC's response?



This is an interesting thread. I thought my Cosmo battery was worn-out (ordered a new one but it never showed up), but I'm not getting the drain cited here.

I run Linux-only and I've disabled CODI and I get 10 days or so of down-time before the battery drains out.

Other than a disabled CODI, my internal wifi/bt doesn't work, so that may have something to do with it, too.


Have similar experience....use mixture of linux and android, CODI always off, BT off, get around 10 days....before need to charge again....

Sorry to hear about your keyboard troubles......

Seems very likely the isopropylalcohol did something to the keys underneath them...Assume it was the vapors from it evaporating.....

While you could use superglue, I would probably try some other glue first, maybe a bit of rubber cement? or some other glue that would hold the key on, but allow you to pop off a key if you needed to in future.

Would assume that superglue would be a very permanent solution such that trying to remove a key that was glued would likely break the plastic.

Maybe worth an email to Planet to hear what they recommend?

Let us know how it goes......

Hi gymbo,

Thank you for your help!

Think problem must have been some issue with settings getting changed...

I found a setting that did not seem right. Changed it back to what I thought was correct and Voila! I could turn on mobile data again!


Cosmo Communicator - Android / Can't Turn On Mobile Data
« on: July 26, 2021, 07:07:11 pm »

Not sure what's happened, but when I tap on the Mobile Data button nothing happens.

In Settings, I clicked on 'Turn On' Mobile Data, but nothing happens..

Can anyone please advise?

Not good situation.....



Very cool!

How do you like UB Ports vs the other linux options available to us?


UB Ports is a good operating system. The interface is very good. Usability too. It's very polished. But Debian for me is better: much more apps and more versatile. But I must admit I use Android most of the time, because the camera works with all apps and I can also use my banking app. Android is also based on Linux.

Thank you for your comments. Very helpful.
