Astro Slide - Android / Re: Building LineageOS for Astro feasible?
« on: June 19, 2024, 12:03:46 pm »
There's a device tree I got hold of on the Planet Community GitHub organisation. Advice is really to focus efforts on that organisation, where I'm working on funding via Open Collective, and from Planet.

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Re: Android v25 Firmware

I have addressed the issues in the README. I suspect people are downloading HTML as a 'zip'.

I take it by your username that you're 'lolnemo' on Discord... I'm trying to get Pateron to allow me access again, and I have GitHub Sponsors, Ko-Fi, BuyMeACoffee, and Liberapay.

Working on setting up a 'tier' system, but to everyone who donates: this isn't a service I offer; merely financial support.

Still have not been able to get a dev Astro. Or Gemini.

Planet is still alive, and I'm working on negotiating employment with them for Linux on phones.

I can't go into much detail, as I do not wish to set expectations.

However, they are alive and well.

Do not attempt Gemini ROMs or rooting on the Cosmo. This is *dangerous*.

They each use different chips, and no common platform, a la Project Treble.

I don't think it'll happen for a while.

Bear in mind, this was only by luck I found the OTA package on an old server of mine, so obviously it's not an official solution.

Although I suspect the next update for Cosmo will *have* to be an OTA package like in my Git repository, because the Wireless Updater is offline.

Hi Greg, this isn't an official Planet support platform.

I do however have experience with CoDi, and might be able to help if it's not hardware.

Your next step would be to post a picture of the CoDi screen - front panel.

You can't update via OTA (and do NOT use my V25 update patch), so you'll need to flash V23 from the Planet support site.

V19 is the minimum version that supports multi-boot.

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Re: console Mode in Gemian possible ?
« on: December 16, 2023, 04:50:51 pm »

I just got my comso and try to set it up with Linux. Does anybody know how to run console mode ? If is run "systemctl isolate" the cosmo crashes immediately.
Do i need to set the right video mode first ?, where and how ? (Cant find any grub config file)


This isn't possible due to the way Gemian runs. There's also no GRUB config.

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Re: Dual boot with 4g working
« on: December 16, 2023, 04:50:17 pm »

I had the same bug with both rooted android and stock android. I'm going to try again later today if I get around to it. Will see how I go

Interesting. Are there any error messages that appear? I don't use Gemian, but I wonder if the modem needs a hard reset. You could achieve that by going into aeroplane mode and exiting again.

Sounds like you have a way forward. Yes please if I can have a script and clarity on how to use it correctly. Thank you

Hey @Robsno5!

Sorry, I completely forgot about you. It's nothing personal, I just have a lot of fingers in pies, and forget to reply to people.

In terms of flashing v23, I've created this archive just for you:

You'll need to enter 'fastboot'. Once in Fastboot, connect a USB cable to the *left* side of the Cosmo, and run the script (as root) in the archive. Make sure no other Android devices are connected.

The script should do it for you. If there are any errors, report them here for me in a code block. Then if it all flashes okay, run `fastboot reboot`, and you should be in V23, factory reset, and clean Android.

Hope that helps.

I've never seen this bug before. Are you using Rooted Android, or not? What's the firmware version of Android?

To be honest, here isn't very visible for the Gemian maintainers.

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Re: Flashtool on Windows 11
« on: October 15, 2023, 02:25:45 pm »
Thanks for this useful hint! I wonder what does OS' memory protection have to do with a flashing tool...


Likely to do with the driver for interfacing with Mediatek's preloader. This isn't unusual. But I wouldn't trust it with a five-foot pole... it doesn't happen on Linux, but it could do, if it was a hardened kernel.

I've never had this happen to me though.

I've just successfully flashed my Gemini, but to get it to get the FlashTool to recognise the Gemini I had to disable memory protection in Windows 11:

Windows Security > Device Security > Core Isolation

After a Windows reboot the Gemini could be flashed. Just reporting here in case anyone else has the same problem in future.

To turn on Core Isolation again afterwards I had to remove the FlashTool drivers (slightly technical, but a quick google solved the issue)

Would be worth adding this to the `shymega/planet-devices` wiki as a PR.
