First I installed a fresh v4 firmware.
Then I mounted the v3 image file ( gemian-cosmocom-kde-plasma.img ).
And  copied  the folder droid-hybris from the the v3 image ( /usr/libexec/droid-hybris ) to the v4.( same place  /usr/libexec )
I did a reboot.
Please, do not upgrade the system for now.
You have to hold ( apt-mark hold )  codi-app and lxc-android.
Now you can upgrade.
Incoming calls and outgoing calls are working pretty well.

Unfortunately messaging-app is still with the same problem : only outgoing messages are working.

But I think it is a light to Adam Boardman to solve these problems.
Good Luck .

I have a SL-C860 running Cacko. Is there a dialog package that I could install?

geminifrench - this guide is AMAZING! You've helped breathe new life into my Gemini PDA. I remember when installing Linux was painful. and this was a comparative breeze. And. so glad to have an OS that is still getting security updates.

Thank you for sharing this!

Merci :-)

Yes - the fact that resolution is nonstandard is a problem. E.g. I cannot get the Cosmo picture to appear on our LG OLED TV, while it does work with my PC monitor.

It really should be selectable.

Astro Slide - Hardware / Re: Fast charging

The Gemini and Cosmo both uses the really old PumpExpress+ (essentially version 1.0), presumably because it's cheap. Until we either get further details from Planet or the Astro starts shipping, I guess they'll use the same old version with the Astro, so they can keep using the same type of wall chargers for the Astro as well.

The marketing says that the Astro will have up to 10W wireless charging, which may have forced them to use something newer. Then again, the power bricks for the Gemini and Cosmo can deliver 2A at 5V, without any particular handshake, and that equals 10W, so my guess is that wireless charging of the Astro won't use any particular fast charging at all, while charging via cable will use the same (up to) 1.67A at 9V = 15W PumpExpress+ as the previous devices.

While only a partial answer, Planet has stated that MediaTek, the company making the SoC for the Planet devices, uses a proprietary non-standard solution to output HDMI via a USB type C connector, which means a standard HDMI alt mode USB type-C to HDMI cable will not work.

Though I do have a Planet HDMI cable, I don't have proper equipment to examine how the pins are connected. As I suppose the cable offered by Planet is MediaTek-specific rather than Planet-specific, maybe an USB type-C to HDMI cable for some other phone, based on a MediaTek SoC could work, provided any other phone maker, using MediaTek chips, supports HDMI out.

I doubt the exact USB and HDMI versions matters much. On the Gemini and Cosmo, the HMDI out can only output their native resolution of 2160x1080 and only at 60p. A qualified guess would be that the Astro will also only output its native resolution (2340x1080) at 60p. While the aspect ratio is odd, which might affect display compatibility, the required bitrate should fit within the HDMI 1.0 specification of (from 2002).

There are a few threads here on OESF mentioning a "USB-C to HDMI DisplayLink" (not to be confused with DisplayPort) adapter. DisplayLink seems to be an external graphics chip, thus requiring an app to work. As I don't have any particular knowlege to share, I can only recommend, should you be interested, that you use the search feature, in the top right corner and read what others has to say.

I have sent an e-mail to Planet, asking for specifications on the pen... I will, of course, share any answer from them... Otherwise, I might back it blindly.
Sixteen days later, no reply. I'm neither surprised nor upset. I suppose they don't know at this point and they are likely quite busy, trying to make the Astro happen ASAP. Anyway, as I am curious about how the Astro Active Stylus compares to my Adonit Dash 3 and I do want some case, even if rather basic, I just backed the "New Astro Accessories Pack".

There seems to be a conflict in gemian v4 with LibreOffice.  Attempting to install LibreOffice gives a warning that it will remove packages camera-app. media-hub, messaging-app.  I recall that the message app disappeared on installing LibreOffice in gemian V3, which could be fixed by re-installing the message app.  I aborted the installation of LibreOffice this time, but presumably the next thing to try is re-installing these packages after LibreOffice.
Install aptitude ( apt-get  install aptitude ) and do sudo aptitude install libreoffice . That is it. Good luck.
Just to say cmst-connman is outside of my scope and so your off playing with dragons again.

I fixed up cmst/connman back on the Gemini, to only find that on the Cosmo we had apparently moved to nm, so now the plan is to fix that up, going forwards I don't want to have to fiddle with every different option, its a one time move to better fit with the plasma desktop hence updating of kscreenlocker shortcuts to work with nm. Given that my test sim has started showing random small amounts of data/month and I've never installed cmst, nm must be randomly attaching when I turn off wifi, even though I'm generally also turning off cellular at the same time.

Bug #9 is the one to follow if you want to track the progress of getting nm up to scratch:

Hi Adam. Thank you again.
