No Not yet. It will take sometime to get crust to work on Manjaro as it requires legacy compilers.

SMS messages didn't appear in the messaging app, so I have no idea if they send/receive properly

that said, wifi works perfectly which is ahead of UBPorts.

the app store is incredibly limited, but it gave me less trouble than the ones for UBPorts and ArchARM. I've also never ran KDE before, so some of the categories seemed to be in another language lol

from the sound properties it seemed that it has the same issue that Phosh has right now, where you need to manually toggle the audio to make a phone call, or am I wrong? I have no cell reception at my home so I honestly couldn't test it.

also, there's pacman. I severely miss pacman. that reminds me, I tried to use a PKGBUILD to manually build an app to test (a facebook messaging app), and when I tried to makepkg it complained that there was no fakeroot environment.

You need to install all the pkgs needed to build pkg. 

Sudo pacman -S base-devel 

This will get you all the pkgs like fakeroot etc.

of course! that seems so simple, and on regular Arch I'd have known that (or rather, it would've been done as part of the base install), d'oh!

For now there is availbale ALPHA-6

Installed it, booted and tested calls.

Incoming calls are recognized on the phone. It rings, but no app starts to accept the call. If You start the phone app manually there is no incoming call, but the phone rings. Outgoing works flawlessly


Something broken in the notification system?

I tested ALPHA-7.

Calls seem to work now - but no sms application installed.
Applying the update via the software store killed the system by cpu overload.

Something with the carrier signal seems to be odd too. Signal strength jumps from 0 to 40% back to 20% and 0 again.
