Google have approved the latest Gemini OS build - so fingers crossed will be available shortly. Wonder what improvements have been made this time?

OK upgraded my X25 4G Gemini yesterday

- when I tried to install I got an error message - smcard full or something like that - rebooted and went perfectly at second attempt
- set up screen is presented on bot - very simple and elegant set up procedure. Much improved
- the Data app is included - seems like a good start but feels like it's in beta. Needs to have an import ability. It's not clear to me whether this is backed up in any way - so risk of data loss if you have to flash your Gemini? Also when you try and add an image to the cover of your database it crashes
- the Agenda app has been upgraded to include a new view. it's pretty nice. I have my DPI set at 600 - which unfortunately leaves a white bar at the top of the screen
- there are some more Gemini settings - you can toggle Fn Space and the smart button on and off
- my Gemini now responds to volume, next track, start stop, ff, rw via bluetooth when closed
- google assistant now works when closed - I had to reinstall Gemini Voice Assistant from the play store to get the buttons to respond
- I haven't noticed any change to LEDson
- Bluetooth seems a lot more stable - I had issues with it randomly turning off. Haven't seen this issue since the upgrade - so far so good
- there is still an issue with the A Bar - if you un-check AutoHide it intercepts keystrokes making the device unusable. Leave this on!
- I use Nova but new firmware has Launcher 3 installed I think (not sure if this is new since the last firmware??)
- Backing up Notes causes a crash
- Speakers sound MUCH better

Overall a really good update restoring some lost functionality and some new stuff to boot. Well done Planet!

Anyone got any ideas when we're hoping to see the next firmware release? Been several months since Google Assistant was borked.

If you go into developer mode and change the dpi to 600 or above a few cool things happen

1) Buttons on the right of the screen move to th bottom. Better experience hitting home and back button as its over the Gemini's centre of gravity
1) Apps like Gmail go into tablet mode. You get a reading pane instead of just a long list of emails.

Just make your font size bih enough to read!! smile.gif

I've installed the camera module as per the instructions however it's not being detected. In the camera app there is no option to switch between front and rear camera. I've tried clearing the cache in the camera app but no joy. Any ideas?
