For those that got Debian running now, some screenshots would be fun to see.

Thanks,

Even better, capture some videos to see UI responsiveness and boot up time etc.

I would but until I can figure out how to get the WiFi working I have no way of posting the screen shots. I can post a video tomorrow of it booting up.

Why not take the video with your other phone? Then you don't have to worry about wifi on the Gemini.

There you go, boot up from Android

For anyone that has reflashed to the dual boot from a Linux box - how long after clicking the download button did it take to start?  I've got the scatter file loaded up, clicked the Download button, seem some output back in the console window that seems to indicate the Gemini has been found but then nothing.  Tailing the flashtool logs doesn't really seem to give any clues either.

Also 5.1752.00 seem to be the latest Linux version I can find, 5.1804 is Windows only from what I've been able to find.

Because the Gemini replaced my S7 edge so I no longer have another phone.

Super neat! So have you tried apt-get yet?

I would think that you could install GNOME Shell on there which has multi-touch support built in and is much more touch friendly.

I notice the mouse pointer. Does it function as a mouse pointer? If so, what serves as the mouse buttons? If not, does it interfere with touch selection, as it did on early experimental Linux distributions did on ARM machines?

I connected a mouse to it and it worked as a normal pointer,

Try to open ConnMan UI from Menu - Internet, go to Status tab and toggle Wi-Fi power on by clicking on button with red circle.
