Android update available today, took the very dangerous path of simply installing it.

Went ahead with no fuss, Build number reports Cosmo-9.0-03262020-V20

So far so good?

I'm messing around with flashing my Gemini, I know that the partition tool for 8.1 isn't available, but I noticed something on the 7.1.1 version, where you can get a list of all firmwares for v7.

Looking at the URL I was able to tweak it, and get the list for those for v8. There's no WiFi version yet, but I see:

Debian - 2019-05-16
Gemini x25 & x27 base - 2019-05-09
Kali - 2019-05-09

You can find it here: http://support.planetcom.co.uk/download/Li...uxFirmware.html

Hope it helps someone out there!

Anyone know if the Camera2 API has been enabled in 8.1? Or if it can be?

I've been trying to use the Moment Pro camera app & it refuses to run because 'certain features are not available'. Which I put down to Camera2 not being enabled.

I'm curious to know if the audio jack on the Gemini supports inline remote commands.

Not that I have one, but i've been experiencing really strange behaviour with one set of hands free headphones, whereby without any interaction:
  • the volume level will change, both up and down
  • the audio player (in this case VLC) will open in minimized mode & start playing at first a random track, and then subsequently continue on from where I last cancelled it
  • the microphone will stop working (is this related to my other thread regarding the microphone?)
  • watching video with VLC will stop/start randomly
And yet using the single button on the headphones to answer calls doesn't work!

A plain set of regular headphones does not seem to have this effect, however i've only tried them once so more investigation here is needed.

Had a really annoying thing happen to me over the weekend (and of course it would happen at the worst time), but it seems my microphone has stopped working during phone calls.

I've tried turning the Gemini both ways up, but still no sound. I can hear the remote caller, but they can't hear a thing from me, not even it being very quiet (which was an older issue I used to have).

A reboot did not solve things either.

Using external headphones is working for now (actually it's been by preferred method for better quality), but there are times when you need to quickly take a call (and of course on Saturday I seemed to have a great many urgent ones to take!)

I should be running latest firmware. Non rooted, nothing else fancy except a few apps.

Any advice please?
