Based on the last indiegogo announcement, I'm trying to use the Flashing guide (http://support.planetcom.co.uk/index.php/Linux_Flashing_Guide) to get Sailfish installed.

Where I'm getting stuck is the point where I run the Flash Tool - the 'linux' and 'Boot 2' p]aths are unchecked:

I can see that the "sailfishos" directory is inside the base firmware directory, and contains both of the .img files.

This is the partition configuration:

Any ideas? The base firmware folder structure containing the scatter file and the sailfish OK looks like this:

I can't seem to find the Gemini app bar on the Play Store - any idea where I can download it? I couldn't see it on the planetcom.co.uk site either.

I've noticed that when making notes (e.g. using the Notes app), after closing and re-opening the lid, the device goes to the "home" screen with all the app icons, rather than keeping my app in memory, to let me carry on where I left off.

Is there a way to tell android to re-open the latest app, rather than going to the home screen?

Related to this would be a way to to prevent the app bar from automatically displaying when the device is opened.

Edit: Simply turning the device on and off using Fn+On/Off works as expected (i.e. the app remains open). Closing the lid does something different - I wonder why? I thought the app bar might have something to do with it, so unistalled as a test, but still the "home" screen is displayed when the lid is opened.

When my Gemini is open, I've noticed quite a strong aroma - somewhere between plastic and chemical. Quite similar to the smell of a firelighter. Possibly from the layer beneath the keys.

I've had lots of gadgets over the years - this is a stronger smell that I've ever noticed before.

If you have a Gemini, do you notice the same?

I'd like to take my Gemini on some trips where I'll be away from charging points for long periods (e.g. multi-day hiking and cycling trips). I'll be carrying an external battery to charge the device, but I'd like to reduce the power consumption as much as possible. Here are the things I'm planning to do:
  • Switch to airplane mode - no bluetooth, wifi or cellular
  • Keep the screen brightness down
  • Switch on android's "Battery Saver" mode
  • Close any open apps which are not required

Are there any other ways to keep the battery usage as low as possible?
