Update: It arrived! Yesterday, in fact. Went super fast.
My first impressions are good. I managed to get ShiftOS-L (Google-free, based on Android 10) and postmarketOS both installed at the same time so I can dual-boot. I also unlocked the bootloader and all this without voiding my guarantee.
Thanks to the #postmarketos wiki and matrix crowd for helping me figure things out. Look forward to playing more with this thing.
Just dropped my phone for the 256th time and the glass finally cracked. Looks pretty bad, there are splinters coming out, etc.
Guess it's finally time to move on. I had a Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge which served me surprisingly well for five years (thanks to /e/ OS from @efoundation for the software support while it lasted).
hey hey, the SDM845 kernel fork in @postmarketOS just got upgraded to 5.19 😎
Finally adding speaker support for the 6T and enabling the OnePlus 6 notification LED! Let me know if you've given it a spin

This is something Linux on mobile enthusiasts should consider seriously, and require from manufacturers :)
lmao @ManjaroLinux really can't help themselves but ship unmerged patches, this time they broke Chatty again by including 3 merge requests in Chatty on their STABLE branch! One of which is actually closed...
It is not the first time this happens and then users are confused about bugs. Sometimes these bugs are known because it is unfinished work. In other cases, it can come from integrating random patches on top of releases. Now it is shipped in the form of a developer release which is advertised as 'look we have a new release'. If you want to test experimental stuff to give feedback upstream, consider to keep it in dev circles instead of social media.
This is fun: #Manjaro make sure that there's more change in their build of #Phosh 0.20 for #PinePhone/#PinePhonePro by shipping unmerged Feature Merge Requests (that are known to land after 0.20) and then make a video about "radical change" in that release: https://botsin.space/@manjarolinux/108570528095608067
Our feedback to the EU Sustainable Products Initiative: products should explain how we can install another operating system of our choice, we should have full access to hardware, and the product passport registry should be offered as Open Data to EU citizens.
Don’t annoy GNOME developers if this is buggy - I‘ve briefly tried this and have to agree with @calebccff (https://nitter.net/calebccff/status/1536084663445356545#m) that this edition should not be a thing yet, it’s just too early.
We just released #postmarketOS v22.06 with the release name "The One Where We Started Using Release Titles"!
This release is the first one where we support between release upgrading, so no need to reinstall anymore with every new release. This is also the first release with support for the #SHIFT6mq and the Samsung Galaxy S3!
