Cosmo Communicator - CoDi / Resetting Codi?
« on: July 29, 2021, 11:25:43 am »
For some reason, Codi doesn't work anymore. I'm trying to reset it, but Cover Display Assistant keeps saying “Resetting cover display…” indefinetely. I also tried to manually re-flash the firmware, but after selecting the files, the app crashes.

Is there any other way to reset it properly?

Also, is it even possible? 'Cause I remember lots of people saying over the years that you can't skip an Android version...

I also wonder about SoC drivers. Did MediaTek really add support for Android 11 to this chipset? 'Cause it's not exactly a new chipset anymore... Or did Planet take the Fairphone route and reverse engineered the driver in order to support a newer version?

Thank you Shuntcap. By the way, and I of courrse have zeo expectations, have you ordered Astro? I am afraid it would need something similar because I have vey low expectations from Planet Computers when it comes to photography.
No, I have not backed the Astro and I do not plan to.  I did back the Pro1 X, though.  As a programmer, I prefer a keyboard with a lot more keys than what Planet offers, even if I won't be able to touch type on it.  I also prefer an organization that is more transparent with its backers.  Plus, the camera in the  Pro1 X is a known entity, the IMX363, the same camera sensor used in the Pixel 3, 4, and 5.

You may be right about the Astro's camera.  Given how bad the Gemini's rear camera was, and how badly MTK butchered the Cosmo's rear camera, and given that Astro's front camera is likely still the same low quality 5MP camera that the Gemini and Cosmo have (based on Astro's specs), we backers and consumers have every reason to anticipate the worst for the Astro's camera.  It's simply Planet's track record.  If they can break that, great.

I haven't backed the Astro either and maybe I could live with the Pro 1 X keyboard, but I'm a Dvorak guy and Fxtec doesn't offer a Dvorak version, sadly...

I had that happen a few times. What solved it for me was tapping to focus before taking te picture, even it's already focused enough. It saved it every time since I applied this trick.

Feature... I have tried to find a third-party alternative for the app switcher but I have not found a decent one .

I haven't found one at all. I even tried the QuickSwitcher Magisk Module to force-enable the stock Pie app switcher, but even that didn't work.

Is there any way to take a macro picture  with the app by Shuntcap? I cannot seem to find a way to modify focus distance.

I also found out I need to enable HDR+ in the settings to get betterlooking pictures (taking of a picture than takes around five cseconds).

5 seconds? I think Planet shipped you the wrong Cosmo 'cause I tried HDR+ on a few Cosmos now and it only takes 2 seconds.

I've tried to download your gcam mod but a new browser tab opens (chrome on android) and closes again and nothing is downloaded.

This was intended for use with Termux from the Play Store.  However, this step is no longer required, as I released an updated .apk on September 7th that solves the crop and overexposure problems:

Saving as RAW in GCam is now purely optional since the JPEGs are fully usable.

It's a strange browser issue. I had the same issue with Vivaldi, but not with Yandex. Not sure where the problem lies.

Thanks for this great find! It works great, except that the image taken has a huge black area around it. Is there a way to eliminate that without cropping?

Yes, this has been warned about on several tech and media sites, including the famous Android Police:

2) I've had that issue since the beginning and it was never fixed.

Hi Spa

Most important:
AutoActivation of keyboard backlight. Nothing changed.

Working fine for me on rooted Android.

I too notice this, but only sometimes. It works fine in the background like 85% of the time. I have no idea what the issue is.
