Cosmo Communicator - Android / Bluetooth Watches
« on: November 26, 2019, 05:52:31 pm »
Interestingly turning off Duraspeed has not only fixed the Bluetooth connection being dropped to my Galaxy Watch - it has also stopped (or seems to) the external screen process crashing.

However, in just 5 1/2 hours my device has dropped down to 37% I'm thinking that something just isn't right.  It spent a few hours playing music to my Bluetooth headset, but my Note 8 could do that and barely flinch so i think power management is an issue on the Cosmo right now.

Cosmo Communicator - Android / VoIP / SIP missing?

Android should have built-in SIP support, but I cannot find it.
* Normally you'd go to the "Phone" dialer and then Settings : Calling Accounts and there should be an option to create SIP accounts here, but all I see is my SIM carrier account.  No option to add SIP account.
* I looked around and couldn't find any place to add a SIP account.

I was also unable to find VoLTE options either.
Does anyone have SIP (using native Android as opposed to 3rd party app like Zoiper) or VoLTE working on their Cosmo?

Alas, Planet have disabled it in the build they are using.  Not sure if this is a Google requirement though, most phones I have used do not have it enabled (except Pixels).

VoLTE settings are enable with Settings / Mobile network / Advanced / Enhanced 4G LTE Mode.  if your network allows VoLTE is should just work.  Heck, even 3 just worked with VoWiFi (Dialer / Settings / Calling accounts / [network] / WiFi Calling)!

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Keys getting stuck

Thank you.  Good job I have my Gemini at home.  The Cosmo doesn't have the removal tool (no need for it).  Hopefully it just needs to be reseated...

Does anybody know a, safe, way to remove the keys on the Cosmo?  My "S" key keeps getting stuck, probably a bad spring not returning to the right position.  I'll be getting in touch with PC about this, but in the meantime was wondering if there is anything I can do myself?

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Mobile data
« on: November 26, 2019, 08:49:07 am »
Ok worked it out.  UI is very bad, and default settings (that you can't seem to access right now) have the second/eSIM as the data sim!

Turning mobile data off, then on again, and say "Yes please change the SIM used" fixed it.

Though my thoughts on this device are a little soured as my "S" key keeps getting stuck and the "C" key is not very responsive

Hi guys, hope one of you can help.

Finally got my Cosmo - feels nice and screen is pretty good too.  Of course I'll happily do a full review, once I can.

However it's failed at the first hurdle.  My network is 3 (Three) - 4G (LTE).  However whilst voice calls are working just fine, I can't get mobile data to turn on.  I turn it on via the settings UI, and it pops right back off

Anybody got any ideas?

Just out of interest did you have your Tickwatch E connected with a previous Android device?

If you did you will need to remove the Tickwatch E from your devices in your Google account (via website, not on your phone).  Had to do this with my LG Watch Urbane - was driving me nuts!

If you didn't have it connected then I have no idea I'm affraid

Can't even upgrade firmware... it downloads and aborts on reboot...Message I see with my microscope is something about  invalid zip file.

Anyone have a clue....

Yeah, if you have root and/or dual boot it currently will NOT work - we have to wait for the manual flashing site ( to be updated

Gemini PDA - Android / New firmware update released
« on: June 15, 2018, 09:25:44 am »
Hey guys, I just chased Planet Computers as the updated firmware for manual install still isn't available.  The response was not what I wanted

Apologies for the confusion yesterday. It appears that the full image of the updated firmware still hasn't been compiled. The official response I've received from a developer earlier today stated that we will have the links updated within a week once the full compilation is ready.

Of course I'm not including the full email as that has names etc - still, I guess this means that by the time we rooted/dual boot users get the update any extra fixes and updates will be ready and others will have already found all the problems

Is there any detail on how to do that?  (It's not something I want to try without being sure!)

As I understand it, in the flash tool (note I am on Windows, should be the same for Linux) all we need to do it untick the line called "userdata" once a scatter file has been selected - then flash as normal.  However, I have not yet tried this and the instructions that have been suplied are not what I would call detailed.  The update hasn't been published to the support site yet either, and we are rapidly approaching end of business day in the UK so we might not see it till tomorrow now.

Does anybody have detailed instructions on using the flash tool?  I had to find a post on Redit about pressing flash then rebooting the Gemini for it to be detected - that snippet wasn't on the official instruction page.

On the plus side, I asked Planet "Is there any chance that in the future OTA updates will work for those of us with rooted and/or dual boot based devices?" and the response I just received was:

Yes, this update actually corrects those issues. It should no longer be a problem with our future updates.

So if manually flashing this release is a one off I will be very happy indeed!

As somebody that has my device dual booting I was unable to update, I contacted Planet Computers support and was told:

You will be able to correct this later today once we update the download links for firmware on our website. You will, unfortunately, have to re-flash again, but you can untick the user partition in order to avoid data loss.

I have asked a follow up question to see if those of us with root and/or dual boot will ever to perform an OTA update - I will post whatever response I receive.  I am not overly happy having to manually update Android each time, but I can live with it (for now) - one thing I AM happy about though, Planet Computers got back to me within 1 1/2 hours - not bad for a small company.

Gemini PDA - Android / Haptic feedback driving me insane!

Many thanks Gidds, that did the trick.  However I did have to reboot before the setting actually took effect - guess that might be a future fix potentially?

Hi guys,

Does anybody know how to turn off the haptic feedback that the Gemini uses when pressing the back button (on screen) or and of the keys on the physical keyboard?  It's driving me nuts!

On most Android systems this option would be under accessibility, but I can't see any options for disabling it in there.

Many thanks in advance!

Gemini PDA - Linux / Debian TP2 + LTE in the UK
« on: June 04, 2018, 06:13:30 pm »
Hi guys, I got my Gemini a few weeks ago (hard to believe that I've had it that long already!) - and on day two I decided to get it dual booting with Debian.  It took some doing, the official instructions are - to be blunt - garbage, but I got there in the end.  I then followed all the setup instructions and have a mostly working Linux environment - great!

Now, I know that the ofono 'support' is very experimental and full of holes right now - but I have ran into a brick wall and was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction on this specific issue.

At the end of the instructions on the DebianTP instructions page it goes on about ofono/mobile data.

I can't get the LTE/Modem to work at all.  It enables, but it will not find a network.  I think I know what the problem is, I installed the ofono-scripts and ran both the "./scan-for-operators" and "./get-operators" scripts - but it only lists Vodafone, O2 and EE - my network, Three, is not listed at all.

I know the phone application won't work at the moment, but it would be nice to get mobile data working.  Does anybody have any ideas how to add Three to the list of known networks?  Or is this a case of suck it up and wait for further updates kinda issue?

Any help you can offer will be most welcome.  Thank in advance!
