Typo in the "Linux flash guide"
#16
I rooted the Gemini and tried from a terminal:

$ su
# echo 'AT+EGMR=1,7,"IMEI"' > /dev/radio/pttycmd1

I get the response:
AT+EGMR=1,7,IMEI: not found

IMEI still shows as null.

You say, "Once the IMEI is set, you can reflash the phone with a non-rooted Android version if you wish to do so."  That's what I would like to do. I  want a non-rooted device, not a device rooted to Google. Where can I obtain an OS for the Gemini not rooted to Google? Why not offer a certified version of Lineage OS as the default on the Android side of the dual boot, and let buyers make the choice of whether to root their device to Google and whether to install some, all, or none of the Google apps?

The only tool I used was the one at:
http://support.planetcom.co.uk/download/FlashTool.zip

I tried multiple options in that tool to try to get either Lineage OS (Android) or Linux working with phone functions. Neither yet supports phone functions on the Gemini, so far as I can tell. When I gave up and re-flashed the default Google OS, the IMEI shows as null.

I only flashed the Gemini because that was necessary to try to get either open-source Android or Linux.

I backed a project for a dual-boot device with a choice of two open-source OS's, Android or Linux. Instead I got a device with only a proprietary Google OS, built on top of Android but then rooted to (pwned by) Google, and with a blog of proprietary Google bloatware and spyware with root privileges pre-installed.

I understand that some, perhaps many, buyers may want that. Maybe you should offer that Google OS -- as an option. But that's not what we backed on Indiegogo. You can't blame people who try to flash our Geminis, if that's what we have to do to try to get what we backed.

Please don't misunderstand: I am very grateful to you for supporting third-party developers by posting kernel and bootloader source code. Thank you for that, and thank you for not voiding the warranty (if there is any warranty on Indiegogo perks!) if we root our Gemini.
