Mobian phone too hot
#1
I just got my CE PinePhone last week. I enjoyed UT and now I tried Debian.

Man, the temperature of the phone using Debian is very scary.  I read in the forum that was before but now it shouldn't be that hot.  I assume I have the last release of Debian since I just installed 2 days ago, and the temperature is very very high. It wasn't like that using UT.

If I can get a video frying an egg on mobian I will post it 

So, something wrong here

Do the uboot clock fix and drop the clock speed to 492. It will be much cooler and only a little slower. My pinephone cannot run cool or stable at anything higher than 552

I was reading this post from Megi

https://xnux.eu/log/#017

So, it looks that for a long time all distros were ignoring this serious safety issue.

What is worse, is that some 'savvy's were giving wrong explanations as if they knew for sure.

Anyway, anyone knows the current status of the temperature issue? Phones don't get hot as they were, so I assume it is fixed. However, the post mentions other temperature issues.

Is there a post on this? I could not find it

Any update? thanks

What is running? Check with top. Should be less than 1-2% cpu when idle (checked over SSH).

On boot the gnome-software updater will probably load the cpu for a bit and then it should remain idle.

i purged gnome-software, and do installing and upgrading manually via apt

Here is the point. You can check all that is running or not, or applying daily updates, but if the distributions do not correct the issues with the temperature your phone might explode.

I think some of the issues were fixed, but not sure about all of them. Like controlling W during charging, etc

This battery risk sounds freaking serious. Thank you for continuing to raise this. So, it's going to depend upon the distro, eh? We should each contact the developers for each distro?

If you are worried you can always remove the battery whenever it's left unattended. What's important is to not panic. It's an alfa device with alfa software and pre-alfa firmware. You can sell it here in the forums. Anyway, what would you say to the "Developers"? (aka: the pine community) Would you tell them to "develop faster"? This is free software.

Not sure if you found this thread and blog post but the battery is discussed heavily: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=11525
