Feedback of a week
#1
I bought my pinephone end of last year and was still a bit round the edge at the time. retried from time to time.

In past week, I tested again and notable improvements. Thanks a lot to all contributors.

My comments

- mobian 20210913 daily (bookworm)
* no disk encryption - this one is really annoying. IMHO, can't use for day2day without it.
* no option to install/copy to eMMc
* dmesg pollution, mobian/bookworm only (not bullseye): `mmc_erase: group start error -110, status 0x0` repeating continuously

- mobian installer 20210916. for some reason, still in bullseye
* great point, offer disk encryption
* can target sd card or eMMC

- general
* disk encryption and password unlocking with yubikey and nfc would be great. even if likely so,e pinephone add-ons and maybe recent yubikey needed
+ Hello, nope - the PinePhone does not have NFC. We're currently evaluating future add-ons for the PinePhone however, and obviously NFC has made the discussion list. Stay tuned, more information may be coming in the next few months. Sep 2020

+ Linux-based PinePhone To Bring Wireless Charging, NFC, And Keyboard, Oct 2020
https://fossbytes.com/linux-based-pineph...-keyboard/
* wireguard vpn working well in permanent mode, just missing a mobile UI, cli only and resolvectl/resolvconf symlink workaround.
* Axolotl/signal - pending recent breakage fix because of signal.org servers change
* as it's flash/reimage pretty often, I made an ansible playbook for post-configuration and restoring configuration but still have issues.
for example gnome-online-accounts, restoring .config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf and .local/share/keyrings but silently failing after restore without details.
still working on some gnome-settings. wifi/nmconnection files are fine.
* many applications with UI not fit for mobile: nextcloud-desktop (+not using online accounts), keepassxc (known/no plan per https://wiki.mobian-project.org/doku.php...the-screen), ImageMagick, seahorse
* megapixels version is not latest and only produce dng and tiff. options for png or jpg would be nice but ultimately it would be fine if other applications were reading dng or tiff which is not the case. for example, authenticator is only supporting png and jpg.
* anbox is not supported https://wiki.mobian-project.org/doku.php?id=anbox. any plan for waydroid?

You can use jump drive or Etcher to flash your desired image to eMMC.

There is a Mobian wiki tweak that talks about writing a wrapper for the Megapixels photos and changing their formatting. It honestly should be in by default because I could imagine 99.99999% of people have literally no clue what a dng or tiff file is and 99.99999% of people know what a png or jpeg is.
