Quote:Greetings, @pine64 #PineTab2 users!

We have pushed a new kernel (v6.8.6-danctnix2) to the repository.

The new kernel introduces the new #BES2600 community driver which works with suspend.

Power consumption is not tested.

I've not tried it yet, but looking forward to updating my tablet!

Internal wifi, including shutting down and sleeping, has been working OK by me.  Huh

I’m looking at it as more of a feature than a bug and I hope it won’t change. I like my privacy and the major mobile players used to have it enabled by default as well for the last decade or so.

I bought my PT2 in May/23 & I am still pretty happy with the way it is. I have other work issued devices, but for the majority of work I need it for, it’s great. The only bad part is my PBP has been relegated to desk duty these days.
Satisfied PinePhone, Pinebook Pro & PineTab2 owner; Thank you Pine64Team for your work!  Smile
