Cosmo Communicator - Linux / kali on cosmo
« on: June 24, 2021, 12:36:18 pm »
has there been any progress on getting kali to run on a cosmo? has anyone gotten it to work?

For MMS follow the link:

unless i have misread something, with codi v1.15 the touchpad should be working as a mouse and SMS/Phone should be working over wifi. Neither seems to be the case for me.

I will try installing the new network manager to see if that helps with the 'no network' error  :)

I went through the "Cosmo Linux Mobile Data" guide. At the terminal, I get a 'GPRS not attached' error after following the steps. I'm able to use WIFI to access the internet if I manually turn that on. The SMS app reports a different error, "please insert SIM card" - which I suspect is the result of my turning off the non-functioning mobile data in conman and enabling wifi.

looking forward to future updates from PG on the linux side. If I can get a reliably working phone, SMS, and mobile data rig going I'll be a happy camper  :)

putting the firmware file in the root directory seems to be the missing element. I'm not on CODI 1.15 (w00t!)

unfortunately, the 'mouse' aspect of the touch button still does not work and I'm still getting the 'no network error' when I try to use the SMS or Phone apps in the debian image. Anyone have any ideas? I'm stumped...


I followed the guide from the PC support page to install their image of linux on my cosmo. I was unable to get the firmware for codi updated to v1.15 as the android app crashes when I try to point it to the 1.15 firmware update file. Linux is installed and running and I'm able to use WIFI to connect to the internet. However, when I try to use the phone or messaging apps I get a 'no network available' error.

I'm guessing this has something to do with the codi firmware being at 1.14 instead of 1.15 though I'm not sure why that would be the case.

My questions are:

1. how did y'all get the codi firmware updated to 1.15 when the android app crashes when you attempt to manually update the firmware?
2. has anyone else encountered this error, and if so, how did you overcome it?

ty ;D

Cosmo Communicator - CoDi / Codi firmware update stays at 0%
« on: February 26, 2021, 06:45:44 pm »
Hi all,

I just got my Cosmo today and am bummed to see how dorked up the firmware update process is for Codi. Basically I turned the unit on, saw the notification to update Codi, I clicked the notification, the firmware update failed, and now Codi is totally unresponsive. I've tried the usual stuff:

* reboot
* factory reset
* enabling 'do not disturb' and 'airplane mode'
* manual firmware update

nothing. the Codi version reads as 'Unknown' The best I seem to be able to do is to start the firmware update and have it sit there at 0%. The message says 'Flashing resource image' but nothing seems to be happening. It's been over an hour.

I've seen on these forums and elsewhere that the firmware updating process is super-jenky and folks have had to try multiple times (dozens in some cases) to get anything to happen. My question to y'all is whether or not the update process sitting at 0% for a long period of time is normal? At what point does 0% becomes something non-zero?



found this which got me further along:

Basically - what I did was
1. download the files
2. point the Cover Display Assistant to the firmware file via the 'advanced' menu
3. as the poster suggested, I ignored the 'app keeps crashing' error
4. went back into the Cover Display Assistant
5. turned Codi off via the android settings menu
6. flashed

the progress bar is movinating !!!!!!!
