One additional note. The callrecord app does not seem to work with a USB headset connected. I haven't tried with bluetooth headset yet. The Android's built-in recorder *does* work with headsets.

So "resolved" but with caveats...

Every things is on default except 'Disable Battery Optimization' which is on...

Thanks for this! Toggled that and it started to work as expected. I wonder how much of battery drain this will cause...

I've been using 'Call Recorder' app for years now, Work great...

If you read the opening post, I tried the same thing, but could not get it to work properly. I have rooted cosmo. What settings do you use? I thought I tried most of the recording modes...Can you share your settings?

Essentially, it only records the microphone side, not what's coming in from PSTN. Yes, you can record the other party too if you e.g. use speakerphone mode, but that's not really usable. So in the recording I can hear my voice, but not the other party.

Could you then use an automation app to start that recording automatically??

And one question, since you have tried it: Does it give off a "beep" when recording??

Automation app might be good idea. The weird part is that several links (google for it) claim that in Android 9, you should be able to record every call automatically (at least if using Google's phone app). I tried that one instead of the builtin version and found no difference with recording functionalities.

As far as I know, there is a "record button" on the main screen when on a call. What it records, and in what format and where it gets recorded to, I don't know...

(Or if it even works at all... :o )

I have tested it. The calls go to phonerecord-folder on internal storage in 3GPP audio format. However, the problem is that you have to manually start the recording for every call (the automatic recording option does not seem to be there).

  is there any free and preferably open source application for recording your phone calls? All I'd need it to do is save the calls to flash (or memory card). Having a 2-channel (stereo) recording with local and remote side on separate channels a bonus.

  I tried this, but it only recorded my end so doesn't really work...

That said, I do look forward to not needing the CoDi, perhaps finally getting a working compass and a better camera.

The camera issue was addressed by Shuntcap's custom builds of the camera software. The primary feature I'm interested in would be better speech quality for phone calls...

I had not stumbled on that page in their support wiki. But based on this you do not even need TWRP if you can just get to the basic recovery.

Just grab the image and follow the instructions:

You'll lose all data on the device since it requires repartitioning the device at least for the duration of the installation...

I can't expect it because I didn't get a reply about not finding the update ...

How did you contact Planet? I contacted via this form at and got immediate reply about Zendesk ticket creation, and got a reply within 24 hours (although they do say on the page that it might take a few days to respond).

I'd recommend using the webform, that way it's not an issue with Planet's spam filter. And like I said, you do get immediate, automated acknowledgement.

My best guess is that the OTA updater's current implementation is incompatible with V15 (which is very old).

I'd suggest contacting Planet support and ask them about getting the firmware files for manual update. They do not indeed seem to be publicly available.

I got reply from Planet. No go on warranty. The replacement of the screen is £125, and it includes shipping (both to Planet and back).

I'll have to check if I take on their offer. I think that once I get Astro, I'll actually install Linux on this thing and start using it as a pocket PC. At which point the CoDI is more or less without purpose...

I contacted planet via their web form. Let's see what they respond. They do state that it's a 2-year warranty within EU as part of their warranty policy...

Other functions do work as you say, but unfortunately it seems that the silver button at the end that allows you to lock the device is bound to CoDI being on...

Cosmo Communicator - CoDi / Codi broken
« on: August 15, 2021, 05:04:44 am »

  it seems I was able to own the device for almost 1½ years but now CoDI apparently was broken. I just had a phone call and everything was working perfectly. Next thing I know, five minutes later when I take the Cosmo out of case, the CoDi is mostly black except for a few lit pixels.

  Now taking a better look, looks like there's a hairline fracture going horizontally through the display panel. There is nothing visible on the outer plastic casing, so initially it did not look like there's anything wrong. Only when carefully inspecting under bright light I can see it. Codi utility still shows everything and firmware flashing works too.

  What have been the experiences of shipping the product back to planet and getting the Codi replaced? Do they do this under warranty? I mean, the 2 year warranty as mandated by both EU and British consumer protection should apply here, especially since the phone was not dropped or anything like that. How long do the repairs take?

  I have already backed Astro so I just might live without the CoDi the next few months until those are shipped as well...It's not like I used it all that much, except to see who's calling.

I would suggest a factory reset to the phone. Get Android SDK from Google.

Check if you can boot to recovery and/or fastboot mode (Vol-up (the rocker switch) + power on).

If you can, the fastest way to factory reset is probably to say fastboot unlock and reboot the phone. Unlocking wipes all data from phone. If this fixes issue, you can then re-lock the flash drive afterwards.
