debian+phosh running on PinePhone
Hi, I try to use PP for connecting to whatsapp (bad word, I know ), navigation and photos. Did not manage to get any of those working yet.
Not a photo and not location via gps. Maybe someone could give a hint, where I could start. 
At this point I have setup pureMaps and OSMScout-Server,   I can confirm the abnormal heating up of the modem when downloading maps via OSMScout-Server over a certain time.

I learned how to package debian programs and wrote some packages for gnome-authenticator's dependencies. I got gnome-authenticator to compile. I need to read up on how to send the packages I made to you though. If you have a quick and dirty way, maybe I can send my work to you for you to build off when you have time.

Oh, great! I think the best is that you upload your work (source code, most notably the debian/ folder) to your gitlab/github account and post the link in the issue, so we can discuss it from there Smile

The camera doesn't work currently but whatsapp-web might be possible.

For the maps issue, have you turned on location services in the privacy settings menu?

Web.whatsapp did not run in Firefox and the Gnome browser, but I installed and there it worked. But form factor was not optimal and performance was not idea neither.
is there any opportunity to have a "ctrl" and an "alt" key maybe in the terminal view of the squeekboard ?
That is to configure e.g. "ctrl +" and "ctrl -".  Or can I modify one of F1..F12 to function as "ctrl +" and "ctrl -" in a way ?

Depending on what you want tondo with alt or ctrl..
Some apps already have a F1..F12 shortcut.
Tell us more about what is missing.

just for testing, I have installed OffRoad (java app) that has these keys to control it. (e.g. ctrl +, ctrl - for zoom in and out).

Whatsapp Web works quite well in qutebrowser. Desktop notifications don't work yet and it doesn't have pinch to zoom, but it's performant and the keyboard controls work quite well. And it's easy to add your own keybindings.

Squeekboard doesn't support modifier keys yet. But they'r working on it.
A new release is available!

A few cosmetic details have changed ("King's Cross" now appears as "Terminal"), virtualization has been enabled in the kernel for those needing containers.
Finally, thanks to @rico we now have a network connection and serial console through USB! All you have to do to enable it is install the pinephone-devtools package, then reboot.

The serial console and network connection will be setup automatically on the phone side. On the host computer, you'll have to configure your network interface using the following commands:

Code:
sudo ip address add 10.0.0.1/8 dev enxfeeddeadbeef
sudo ip link set enxfeeddeadbeef up

Depending on your host system the interface name (enxfeeddeadbeef on my Debian) might be different, if that's the case simply replace it by your interface name.
The phone's IP is 10.0.0.2

One final note: installing the devtools also exports the eMMC as a USB mass storage device. However, when booting from eMMC this device will be read-only in order to make sure you don't break your filesystem, so don't be surprised if you can't write to it, or even mount it Wink
Thanks to you also.
We are now near a very good result, and a very big part of that result is your work.
I'll build it tomorrow morning as usual, test it again and read the logs on clean install.

I'll also try to write a few things on how to interact with the modules.
And to all my PinePhone friends, keep in mind it's still in development stage Wink
Do you guys have ideas how to make the volume buttons work?
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
