One (little) feature request: As the system already uses ext4 for internal partition, please allow the usage of ext4 partitions in the "shared medium" variant of the sd-card as well. exfat would be even better ;-) Currently, only fat32 is permitted, which can't handle files bigger than 4 GB, which is a problem for e.g. offline wikipedias. Android wants to format sdcard with any other file system.

I know that there are unofficial ways for rooted Android, but this would be a nice (and probably easy) feature for the "normal" Android.

I rooted my cosmo the "official" way, ie installed the rooted kernel in one of the slots (should be EMPTY_NORMAL_BOOT_3 or EMPTY_NORMAL_BOOT_4). The problem is that the SIM card is only detected in normal (non-rooted) android, not in the rooted version.

Can it be that lk does initialize the modem only when booting from the normal android boot partition?

Hmm, for me it is working... Despite having problems unlocking the user partition (I didn't activated the encryption...)

Did you install twrp from the zip file ( link above ) ?

Yep, I used the one at . Note that it shows the TWRP logo for 1-2 minutes before giving up on decrypt the user partition. And I repartitioned the system before (60/60).

Just change the 5th bytes onwards from the 00  to your current mac (use e.g. ifconfig for this), than press ctrl+c to save and exit.

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Serial Console

Wasn't this more a built-in feature of the geminis SoC + the bootloader?

Additionally, I think the microcontroller of the cover display is connected with something simple - straight uart, i2c or spi. This could be used for debugging as well

P.S. The forum server throws a lot of http 500...

At least for me, also the right side of the Gemini supports the hub.

Manaplus (free and open source MMORG) works fine

I measured it some time ago - there are going 1,5A by 5V over the USB cable. Which are 7.5W - which is ok I think.

Gemini PDA - Hardware / Displaylink adapter works (under Android)!
« on: July 01, 2018, 04:28:31 am »
I tried a (random dual output USB 3.0 which I bought several years ago) Displaylink adapter on the right side. And it worked flawlessly after installing the Displaylink app :-) Only problem is that in OpenGL ES apps the external display doesn't work (Tested with supertuxkart).
It even works in combination with the Gemini Hub and without a external power supply.

So there is finally a way to have power, USB and external display at the same time :-)

I'll add the type of the adapter tomorrow when I have access to it again.

Gemini PDA - Linux / HDMI on Linux?
« on: June 22, 2018, 02:50:55 am »
For this we would need which "bad tricks" planet used for connecting the HDMI converter. We don't even know whether the converter simply gets the same signal as the internal display or they can be used independently, do we?

Gemini PDA - Linux / Mainline linux kernel
« on: June 22, 2018, 02:48:32 am »
I think that it is indeed possible to get all needed bits mainlined. Most, if not all components in kernel are OS, they need "only" to be fit to get into mainline kernel (and if only into staging as a first step) And for mali - the friends at panfrost are very active.

Overall I think we are at a position where the people were a few years ago. And nowadays, almost all things are running with a mainline kernel.

Gemini PDA - Linux / FM radio in debian : is it possible ?

I've no root access yet, but /proc/devices reveals a character device major 224 which is called fm on android.
