Is it possible to upgrade to latest Gemian without losing my data? Without reflasing it all with flash tool?

I’m currently on TP2 dual-boot. What can I do to get latest Debian firmware?

Also whats new in TP2? Is there any changelog? I suspect, GPU acceleration is still non-functional, right?

Thank you!

Bump. Really? No-one upgraded from the first TP release to the second one? Also no-one known whether GPU acceleration is functional in TP2?

I believe there are no improvements in TP2 besides upgraded packages, so apt upgrade should get me to TP2, but I would like to have that confirmed.

There is quite some documentation already at: https://github.com/gemian/gemini-keyboard-apps/wiki
Please be specific to which one you're refering so we, Gemini Linux users know what and where should be improve.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand you.

I was asking about upgrading from https://github.com/gemian/gemini-keyboard-apps/wiki/DebianTP to current Gemian (DebianTP2 probably?).

As for the GPU acceleration, the Mali GPU is/was not used in DebianTP(1), it is apparent as the desktop environment is not as fast as it should be.

Check the second line of the DebianTP2 page, I believe it answers your question: "This is basically just TP1 + all the updates."

TP2 is just a short cut for new linux users. The reason why most people are doing the firmware upgrade is that they want to re-partition the sizes so that they can fit in the extra boot partition, either for Quad(Tri OS + recovery) boot or so they can test alternative kernels more easily.

Thanks Adam. I read that, but I wanted to by sure I don’t miss anything by just upgrading packages with apt.

GPU acceleration is present in TP1 - apps that use ES 2 work perfectly. The lag you are experiencing is due to a significant bottleneck in the fork of glamor used - you can disable glamor and get a much more responsive DE (e.g. scrolling goes from <1fps to >30fps), but at the expense of all GPU acceleration and the login screen
