Extreme disappointement with Pine's shipping department

Every affected buyer will received new DHL airway bill by Thursday (August 11) from shipping team or DHL.

Hopefully this resolved the conspiracy concern.

I am more approaching it as a security thought exercise on how we can best bench test with common tools, such as a serial reader or a logic analyzer, a device presenting itself as a standard pinephone.  It is more to get familiar with the deeper hardware function than any connection to this particular case. At least with the pinephone this is even worth asking vs even a N900 or a lost cause black box like an adroid or apple phone.

That is a great article! thanks!
For me secure boot bit and loosing THE key soft bricking my device is like the horrible feeling I have that I did not secure the wallet and password in the early days(btc<$1) of bitcoin and I have at least 30-40BTC lost in the ether.(edit) that article is absolutely delightful, again big thanks! I only wish it also went deep into re-safing a device which has been through an evil-maid situation.

I liked your virtue signaling with the vaxxine, in the same way that those philanthropic vaxxine companies do not provide a sample of the product for inspection(let alone that you wouldn't be able to understand the potential risks after the "analysis"), you could stand first in line for an i-phone 13 with contact tracing, sidewalk accessory networking etc, and just reverse engineer it for "curiosity sake", though philanthropic Apple too prohibits such "curiosity" actions....

I see your point, it is off topic and am editing that example out.

I didn't point the "off-topicness" but the "non sequitur-ness" of the statements, as I stated previously I will be flooding the forum with "conspiracy" until total and irreversible ban.

Not anymore they won't. (Pro-tip: don't be rude to mods when you get a warning.)

Let's please return this thread to topic, or I'll just shut it down.

This was a DHL issue pine64s customer service was responsive in my case and did their best under the circumstances of newzeland quarantining their shipment.

Some day, we'll have technology to just teleport goods between merchent and customer directly, which would cut mail delivery and governments out of the picture entirely.
