Lightbulb Boot OS from USB ? + other suggestions
Posted by: Marjorie - 07-07-2018, 06:16 PM - Forum: Gemini Flash/Partition tool - Replies (2)


Suppose that I wanted to run Kali or Tails from a USB key for a one-time session (for instance pentesting on the field), and assuming images compatible with the Gemini are made available at some point, how would I go about booting from a USB key ?

Other suggestions:

  • The partition tool is great, however why can't we get rid of Android  ? I have zero interest in Android and no need for a secondary partition that consumes a few Gb for nothing.
  • Regarding booting, using the side switch to select the OS is not convenient. A simple text menu like Grub would be more straightforward
  • Planet Computer should step up security and provide signed images, and publish a public PGP key IMO (the MD5 are better than nothing but do not guarantee the software has not been tampered with)
  • Consider making the downloads available through torrent ?
Thanks for the good work. I tried out Sailfish a few days ago and it's surprisingly good. Too bad it's not fully open source Wink

  Sticky keys Fn, Alt, Ctrl, Shift
Posted by: asti - 06-13-2018, 11:31 AM - Forum: Android on Gemini - No Replies

I would like to suggest the opportunity to switch on/off sticky keys in the Gemini Keyboard app. 
In German we have signs like ü, ä and so on, other languages than German will have different ones. All of them are available, but if I am thumb typing, I have to press Fn+Shift+u to get a capital Ü. It would be cool to press once (not simultanously) Fn, then Shift an then u - so you need only one thumb, not three fingers. After you have pressed u all keys are set back to off.
The Zaurus had this possibility, it is really useful. 

I hope you understand what I mean... :-D

  Are there plans for further Debian firmware releases?
Posted by: davecykl - 06-11-2018, 05:04 PM - Forum: Linux on Gemini - No Replies

I have not yet been brave enough to try to install the Debian Technical Preview 1 firmware on my Gemini (I am somewhat more cautious and tend to prefer until someone else has blazed a trail first before following in their footsteps! Wink ), and am just wondering what is happening with regards to Linux on Gemini?

Are Planet Computers planning to release further Debian firmware installers, or are they hoping that the user/developer community will take this forward fully independently from now on?

Is TP1 actually reasonable usable, with WiFi functionality working OK (although I do have a 4G Gemini, I'd be perfectly happy just WiFi (or Bluetooth) tethering it to my phone for network access for now)?

Are there plans on how to handle software updates in the future? I don't know how the Android core OS update process works: would OTA updates potentially wipe out any other second OS setup and partitioning, or is the Android update process smart enough to only update the Android partition(s) and leave the rest of the storage alone?

  Android paranoid network
Posted by: Beiriannydd - 06-11-2018, 04:32 PM - Forum: Linux on Gemini - No Replies

the CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORK kernel option is apparently what is causing the different network permissions handling which currently makes running network services or docker much harder.  Because in Linux mode, the user-space is properly multiuser, we should be able to turn that off and get a much more normal Linux experience on the Gemini. I wouldn't recommend it for the Android side of things however.

  Gemini fails to boot Android after todays OTA update
Posted by: tader - 06-04-2018, 02:27 PM - Forum: Android on Gemini - Replies (10)

After installing the latest update using the OTA update tool in the settings menu, my Gemini fails to boot Android, I'm looking at planets spinning the planet logo for ages... I have tried wiping the cache. Does anybody have an idea how I can get the Gemini in a working state without wiping all my user data?

  Korean language IME issue
Posted by: tigerblowfish - 05-29-2018, 07:55 AM - Forum: Android on Gemini - Replies (2)

The Korean input in Gemini keyboard doesn’t work correctly.

Basically Korean is 2-byte character system: one complete character is made with 2~6 key inputs which represent consonants and vowels : i.e., "ㄱ"(consonant) + "ㅏ"(vowel) + "ㅇ"(consonant) = "강"(a complete character pronounced as "gaang"). 

But the Korean IME in Gemini Keyboard app doesn’t combine the key inputs correctly but just scatters the individual consonants and vowels, like ㄱㅏㅇㄴㅏㅁㅅㅡㅌㅏㅇㅣㄹ . These disaggregated consonants and vowels should have been combined to "강남스타일".

Dear Gemini programmers: please solve this trouble.

For now I’m using Google’s default Korean input system, which has several inconvenient glitches to use with the Gemini’s keyboard such as no symbols with Fn keys, etc.

I don't have knowledge about programming, but will gladly be a beta tester regarding this issue.

Just small note
To disable android software keys you should change value of 'qemu.hw.mainkeys' property from 1 to 0 in '/system/build.prop' file (root required)

Please add this tweak to settings in Gemini category.

  [BUG] Bluetooth Play\Pause key does't work if lid is closed
Posted by: nox - 05-28-2018, 06:00 AM - Forum: Android on Gemini - No Replies


Found annoying bug with bluetooth headset remote control. Play\Pause key stops working if lid is closed.
Call ending with the same button works as expected.

Tested with JBL and some noname headset and with Spotify app.
Latest Android Gemini 7.1 Planet 10052018V2.

I don't know if it's matters, but I had rebuilded version of Gemini Keyboard App (added new keyboard layout).
