Greetings, everybody . . .

A year ago I put down my Gemini to get an Xperia X and follow it down what has turned out to be the Sailfish OS rabbit hole. (A promising OS, but Jolla's loyalties are understandably with its investors, whose interests are not the same as those of individual users.) So I said hell with it, got a refurbished iPhone SE for $96, and am now thinking of returning to the Gemini as a kind of testbed device.

And at the moment I have absolutely no idea as to the state of Linux on the Gemini (for instance, whether one can make it the sole boot option), whether the pointing situation is any better, and so on. I suppose I could read a year's worth of posts here, but I thought I'd ask first if there's a general, current how-to on Linux on the Gemini. Is there? Have things improved enough that there's a reason beyond stubbornness (from which I suffer!) to install it, and so on.

So -- any good place to learn the current state of play?

Release notes say it is available for both flavors of Gemini, x25 and x27.

There was lengthy discussion of Alien Dalvik, etc., on Gemini at today's Sailfish OS online community meeting. A transcript is here:

I want to put up a picture of the Gemini running Xplanet-desktop but I can't figure out how to make a screenshot on the Gemini runnung SFOS. For the Xperia X it's holding both volume controls at once, but that doesn't seem to work with the Gemini. Anybody know?

Details are here: https://together.jolla.com/question/191509/...300-lemmenjoki/

Among the changes listed is "improved support for MediaTek chipsets."

Those signed up for early adoption -- last-chance beta test -- can download it today (though I do not know and kind of doubt that this includes Gemini devices, but maybe). It will become generally available in about a week. Whether Gemini has now joined the regular list of supported devices -- I don't know, though I do know there is a recipe for upgrading the Planet-provided Sailfish, without a reflash being needed: https://together.jolla.com/question/186471/...anet-computers/
