Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Uninstalling Linux
« on: November 24, 2021, 04:29:18 am »
My cosmo is triple boot (Android, Gemian, UBports). I am selling the device and interested buyers want only Android. How can I achieve an Android-only Cosmo?

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Android update from V23 to offered V25 fails
« on: September 04, 2021, 05:00:51 am »
I should add that my device is triple boot (with Gemian and UBports) and Android has 30 GB. I tried the Android update several times, but the update is reported as failed after accepting the update and rebooting.

Battery life for a turned-off Cosmo seems to be around 2 days. For users that use their device not as a daily driver or phone, this is really disappointing.

Has anybody reached higher values?

Is a physical kill-switch for the battery the only option to solve this? Is there a recipe for it?

For people that need a new Cosmo Communicator: there is a 30 % discount in the official Planet Computers shop.

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Connecting two Cosmos via WIFI or Bluetooth

Has anybody connected two cosmo communicators via WLAN or Bluetooth? What are your experiences?

In some Linux distributions, one can easily create a new WLAN (sometimes called ad-hoc) on device 1; then, you can connect device 2 to this WLAN.

On cosmo's standard network manager in the bottom bar, I choose "Configure Network Connections", then the plus (+) dialog, which opens a promising list (including Wi-Fi, Team etc). But if I select one of them, nothing happens. Could this be a problem of user/groups settings?

I tried several devices in my aplay command, but I cannot reach the stereo speakers instead of the ear speakers. Any CLI solution would be great, aplay is not required.

Thanks for your time.

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Installing Debian from microSD card
« on: December 04, 2020, 08:58:38 am »
I followed the wiki page and the corresponding youtube video. Everything ok, except that writing the debian images fails with two "ERROR:" lines instead of two "OK" lines in the step described as "Once you select the boot partition, the custom OS will be installed on your Cosmo Communicator."

I am using an old 8GB microSD card from Kingston. Could this be the problem? Any recommended microSD cards that work well with this device?
