At the start there was all good, but after 30 minutes or so, the wifi did not respond, I tried to switched on and off and restart the PineTab, but the problem wasn't solved; finally I did a full recovery and that seemed to correct the wifi issue. If it occurs me again, I will make a post, with what I have tried.
Same here, was checking the (absence of) wifi/network settings in the GUI, suddenly connection gone and couldn't find networks anymore. On the commandline I got

RTNETLINK answers : Operation not possible due to RF-kill


after

sudo ip link set dev wlan0 up
Fixed the problem by doing


sudo nmcli radio wifi off
sudo nmcli radio wifi on



sudo reboot

is there anything to be done (switched on, special key comibinations or similar) to enable the backlight on the keyboard? if not then mine seems to be broken as there is no backlight at all by default - in that case how is the procedure to get it exchanged?

best wishes - hexdump




The button with the pinecone (or whatever it is) and the right control button.



Besides a couple of things that were already mentioned, I also ran into something.


During the 1st start I was asked to enter a password for the lock screen, didn't enter one. That resulted in the ability to use sudo without password, a warning that the two are linked together would've been nice.



Another thing I ran into: I can't get the screen to rotate, it's stuck in landscape, doesn't matter if I turn the rotate-lock setting on or off.
