pine64-pinephone: Modem support improvements #231
This PR makes the modem usable.
Update to megi's fork of mainline Linux
This is AFAICT the better option for hardware support. More details on their website.
This, in turn, gives us kernel 5.9
With this fork I was able to confirm LTE data working with Modem Manager, which already is present when Network Manager is. Though YMMV. Calls/SMS have not been tested yet considering I don't have a plan with those for the time being.
I guess SMS would work if you had software that handles them. Calls might work, but probably need some twiddling with ALSA and such to work. They'll be tested and fixed at a later time.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
The following from megi's have to be disabled (not set) or else the console logo will not show up at boot (pre-init). > CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_ROTATION > CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_DEFERRED_TAKEOVER
This does bring up a small complication for users starting from e.g. the generic
So they have to somehow first rebuild with the device configured. This is not something to worry about now, as this is not a regression. This is something that will have to be handled by whatever (human followed) process we create for installing Mobile NixOS.
This has not been made "fancier" for easier use yet. It is unknown how useful updating the firmware is. Usage: ``` $ NIXPKGS_ALLOW_UNFREE=1 nix-build --argstr device pine64-pinephone -A pkgs.pine64-pinephone.qfirehose $ sudo ./result/bin/QFirehose -l ./ -f ./newfw ``` But maybe read more about whether you want to update or not beforehand? https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=11815
