IMHO this Cosmo, my device, is a lame, buggy PoShite.

After charging it this morning because the battery bleeds out and dies as if it was beheaded, the dang thing powers on, says 'hello', displays starting up and then shuts itself down as I open the cover.

It seems to not complete booting up.

Opening the cover (the display is blank / DARK / no splash), the device shuts down and repeats the same nonsense.

IF / when it might display the unlock / enter pin keypad (after entering pin) and opening the cover, the PoS reboots and the loopiness begins anew.

Cannot get into it...

My Cosmo is useless.

IMHO, Planet cares naught. They are deluged with support email over the Cosmo's myriad flaws. to which I added this loopy BS.

NOVA Launcher

I used and liked the paid for "pro" version of Nova Launcher in my Gemini.

However, now I find it less than optimal on my Cosmo, such that I have reluctantly UNinstalled it.

What say you?

How to remove the annoying, monstrous home page footprint of the "search" bar?

Well, I disabled Google and that removes its search bar.

HOWEVER, disabling Chrome DOES NOT remove its search bar (and leaves one without a decent browser).


Any how-to git'er done and gone instructions are WELCOMED!

Seems that after entering my PIN through the cover display, there is a keypad on the opened display that asks for one's
personal security password that is NOT the same as the PIN.

So, I am locked out.

My Gem's curved hinge is slowly loosing its strength.
Its once rather upright angle is widening.
The top, screen panel is weakening because of one's many, yet, softest of touch-screen taps / touches.
Touching the screen will most probably, increasingly and eventually widen the hinge's curved shape, and the top panel will almost lay back flat.

And so I wonder if anyone has removed the hinge (seems doable) and squeezed it back into its original shape?

That asked, I suspect that effort will work but only temporarily as flexed metal actually becomes weaker.

Please advise with your thoughts and....


P.S. ATTENTION Planet: Might the hinge be sold as a replacement part when the above happens, as it most likely will in time?


UPDATE: Planet emailed today (31st of August) saying the hinge can be removed using the removal tool AND squeezed gently back into shape, as it were (but cautioned not too much that getting it back on the device becomes difficult or impossible). And they added that if the hinge loses it hold, in time, they will ship me / whomever a new hinge (free) under the Gemini's ONE YEAR WARRANTY (from date one received their Gemini).

That is good and welcomed custom support!

Thanks Planet.
