Astro Slide - Android / 1 Speaker not working
« on: June 26, 2023, 03:25:33 pm »
I don´t know if this is a hardware or software problem ( after  last update ). One of the speakers isn´t working ( the one near the vol up button ). Earphone  are working in left and right ports.
Any tips ?
Thank you.

[EDIT: Removed the other, duplicated thread, hoping that this is only a software issue. I'll move it to the HW section if it will turn out it's a hardware one. Varti]

Astro Slide - Hardware / 3.5 mm headphone jack hardware problem.
« on: December 05, 2022, 07:49:06 pm »
Astro 3.5 mm headphone jack produces noise and also affects  radio . Please see :

The solution is to buy a usb-c headphone. ( no noise ) or a bluetooth headphone.

I am using an HP headphone usb type C.

But this not solve the problem  of the internal radio, mentioned above.

Maybe Planet can make a radio app that uses usb_c phone as antenna.

Note :
With display is  off or locked  there is no noise   when music is playing but the radio problem persists even with display off.

Astro Slide - Hardware / ear phone noise
« on: December 02, 2022, 07:31:10 pm »
The ear phone in astro produces a lot of noise when connecting and when listening music or any audio or even any video in youtube, etc.
I also related here a problem with the radio app.
Cosmo does not have these problems.
Does anyone have these same problems? Thanks.

Note :
With display is  off or locked  there is no noise   when music is playing

Astro Slide - Hardware / Radio high noise from speakers
« on: December 02, 2022, 06:13:20 pm »
The radio internal app when used produces high noises when selecting the speakers. When using the ear phone it works fine. When using the speakers the music in radio is worse and you cannot  recognize it.
Does anyone have the same problem ? Thank you.

Note .This problem persists even when display is off or locked.

Astro Slide - Android / keyboard gemini apk on google play
« on: October 19, 2022, 06:49:01 pm »
Hi. Why keyboard gemini apk is not available on google play ? I had removed in the past this app when my phone was rooted ( pm uninstall ) and could never install it again. And in cosmo I could also install a version modified with accents to use in Brazil. ( used apk Editor pro and modified keyboard kcm file ). Now I did a factory reset on my phone to restore this apk. Please see my other post and never , never lock the bootloader if you have unlocked it. This caused me a problem and I tought that my phone was bricked.

Astro Slide - Android / bricked phone help - SOLVED
« on: October 19, 2022, 03:45:37 pm »
Hi. My astro is bricked. Can someone provide files to reinstall android on it ? Thanks.
I have unlocked my phone and did a root on it. After this some apps like bank apps and others was not working. I decided to do a reset on my phone and after this I did a lock to oem again. After this the phone was bricked booting only in fastboot mode. ( like a bricked phone ). So, I have unlocked the oem again and for my surprise android returned.  So, please do not lock oem after you unlock it.

Libreoffice is only  installed with ssh.
Please see :

After enabling ssh, I have installed the container with libertine and then libreoffice.
You need to restart ubuntu touch after all.
But libreoffice  is too small to read.
I will attach photos.
Good luck !


After a long time without using gemini, I decided to reinstall linux on it.
But dialer-app is not working. No sound on voice calls. It rings and I can answer a call with the silver button. But only this. No sound on conversations.
I remember in the past ( DEBIAN TP first version ) it was working.
I think the problem is /data/system.img.
I have downloaded the previous first version and extracted the system.img  to /data/
So as described in the old wiki ( not available now ).
But from memory:
sudo apt-get install xdelta3
xdelta3 -d -s /data/system.img system.img
sudo cp system.img /data/system.img

The problem is that the file from wget is wrong or it is not working correctly.
The system.img from first version seems to be correct
So I can't do this test.
Please if someone has this file , let me know.
When I did the command  xdelta3 -d -s /data/system.img system.img I got an error
xelta3: not a VCDIFF input : XD3_INVALID_INPUT

Thank you.


I saw this :

So I downloaded the firmware image  of KALI linux ( from  Planet site ) and discovered that the md5sum of the correct system.img is the same of the link above  ( New md5 output after update: 1b6f07d345cbb9fadca562e788375515 ).

So I have extracted  and mounted linux.img .
First  I made a backup of system.img . ( cp /data/system.img to somewhere )
Then I removed the system.img from /data.
I copied the system.img (from kali ) to /data.
I did a Reboot.
But the phone didn´t work and neither the camera-app.
So, I copied the backup of  system.img to /data ( overwriting the system.img from kali ).
I rebooted linux again.
And for my surprise the phone was working . The camera-app too ( of course ).
I really don´t know. Maybe when booting with  kali system.img in /data some configuration was changed in debian.
The most important is that now everything is working.

Gemini PDA - Linux / Ubuntu Touch on gemini
« on: June 14, 2021, 02:47:10 pm »
Just for curiosity. Has anyone installed Ubuntu Touch on gemini? And if so, Id like to know if it is better than   debian ( from Planet ). My gemini is not in use. It is left in my wardrobe with Android only for a long time. I am using Cosmo. Thanks.
