Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Unboxing

A bit belated but I thought I would create an unboxing thread. Attaching several photos of opening up a pack containing Gemini 4G/Wifi + connection kit.

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / WaterField case for Gemini
« on: May 16, 2018, 07:40:54 pm »
I have had my eye on WaterField cases for other gadgets such as my Nintendo DS and PS Vita, and recently ended up finally ordering a couple. Turns out that the case for PS Vita fits the Gemini quite well.

The main interior pocket holds the Gemini pretty well, though not super snugly, and seems very secure against drops. The main pocket clips shut with button clasps.

The back mesh pocket zippers shut, and is big enough to hold:

- Charger
- Cable
- Gemini Hub
- Gemini HDMI adapter
- DotPen stylus

Very pleased with this for taking the Gemini traveling.

Attached a few photos of the case loaded up.

Gemini PDA - Android / Command line style launcher

Just stumbled on this "Linux CLI Launcher", quite neat launcher / home screen that emulates a command line style interface. It provides a row of buttons of recently launched apps as well.

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Cell connection issues
« on: May 07, 2018, 02:17:47 pm »
So I was testing the cellular connection today, able to load several pages and run a google speed test, then a strange little x appeared on the T-mobile LTE indicator and won't go away. Tried a few things, and found that I am able to start pinging just about anything -- it will actually get the right IP for sites -- but it can't actually send any packets. Anyone else run into issues with cellular connections failing?

I'm starting to worry that the carrier may have blocked the device...

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Tested microSD cards?
« on: May 07, 2018, 01:07:27 pm »
Who has tried microSD cards in their Gemini? What seems to be the best, largest card to get at the moment?

I am probably going to grab a few off amazon in the 128GB-256GB range to see what is what and will report back, would be great to see what everyone else has tried first to test as many as we can over time.

Gemini PDA - Android / Magisk modules installation?
« on: May 06, 2018, 07:12:28 pm »
Has anyone had any success installing Magisk modules?

I am trying to install this module for an ad block hosts file but it fails with a pretty unhelpful error. Weird that this doesn't just work since Planet recommends installing Magisk Manager to finish rooting the device...

Gemini PDA - Android / K-9 Mail Signature
« on: May 05, 2018, 09:42:22 am »
It would be great if everyone using K-9 or other mail clients changed their signature to:

"Sent from my Gemini PDA device with K-9 Mail. Please excuse my verbosity."

(Or similar for non-K-9 users, though I rather like it so far.)

This thing lets me write email exactly how I would at my desktop so no need for the default brevity comment!

Gemini PDA - Android / GNURoot Setup
« on: May 05, 2018, 09:26:41 am »
I have been having a hard time getting a usable Linux environment setup under any of the tools I usually use under Android such as GNURoot. Anyone else tried this? I'll post notes here as I figure things out.

Right now trying to update GNURoot Wheezyx package to get wine and a DE installed... seems to not have many packages available for some reason.

Gemini PDA - Android / Sophos virus result on WirelessUpdate
« on: May 04, 2018, 06:20:56 pm »
Any thoughts on Sophos identifying WirelessUpdate as "Andr/Xgen2-P" virus / PUA? I haven't been able to find much info on this result and Sophos doesn't provide an option to remove it unlike for the "low reputation" Gemini branded apps (which I obvious won't be uninstalling).
