New Mobian Pinephone - czgunner - 03-11-2021

Just got my phone in yesterday.
I got it fired up and charged. Connected to my wifi.
I know this is a work in progress, but my battery seems to last less than an hour.
I tried to look at the software updates, and it just has a spinning ring or freezes.
What's my next step?

 This is a good guide (assuming you have the mobian ce edition):

Perfect. Trying that now. Thanks!

The software tool was broken for me when I first installed it back in January. Command line updates with "full-upgrade" fixed that.

Also possible that something is causing a massive CPU load issue. You may want to look at it to see if things are running idle. "top" over SSH for me is always only a small 1/10th of a percent CPU usage with the screen off.

I do mostly keep the radio off for most of what I'm doing (docked) but I have run Podcasts while clearing the snow outside w/ radio enabled and it's clearly not even close to my Android but should last more than an hour of actual use.

Got the update installed. Seems much more smooth. Also, the battery seems to be better. Charging now. Thanks for all the help!
