Pinned toot

Preview2 of for the is now out.
This release features working sound (although there's some stratching noises when not in use), complete power off support, charging through USB-C enabled and all function keys work.


Our kernel just got sound support!
It's still a work in progress though, but it's in the newest kernel update for linux-pinebookpro.

We also downgraded mpv to match the libdvdread.

If you have updated libdvdread to 6.0.2 be aware that won't work.
If you want/need , then we suggest you downgrade libdvdread to 6.0.1, which is once more in the repo.

The first preview images of for the are bound to happen soon.
Stay tuned for links as soon as they go "live".

Thanks to @tsyseu and @Manawyrm we have successfully patched the upstream kernel with initial support.
Still no audio or bluetooth and the WiFi is pretty unstable.

A little preview of the running KDE .

Still have a few kinks to Work out, but we are getting closer to something usable.

Work has begun on getting to the .

We already have hacked together solution, but we are working on a regular one.

The next batches of the #PinebookPro are now shipping!

The next pre-order window opens on November 5th. A choice of ANSI and ISO keyboards will be available in this batch. So if you've been holding out for a correctly shaped Enter key (can you tell I'm an American? 😉), now will be the time to order!

Seems we are also making progress regarding getting the N2 on in Manjaro ARM.

Thanks to Dodgejcr for testing!

We made progress on the Khadas and devices today. They now boot using 5.4-rc kernel on .

Thanks to Spikerguy for testing in the Vim1.

Going mainline seems to make us loose bluetooth on the vim3, but I am willing to do that in exchange for running upstream mainline kernel.

And its ready.
Should be available once your mirror syncs.

5.2 is coming soon to a mirror near you!
Just have to rebuild a few things that use the 5.1 version.

A (special) mid-month update. All batch 1 #Pinebookpro shipped + batch 2 & 3 assembly started; #PineTime dev kits shipped; #PinePhone dev kits antenna tuning finished & shipping soon. Thank you for your patience!

Getting ready for our 19.10 release.
Just need to do a little more polishing...
