[WIP] device: Pine64 PinePhone Don't be evil development kit // pine64-dont-be-evil #53
The initial commit is in #52.
I'm not sure this device will be kept in Mobile NixOS, since this is the devkit, but for lack of a proper PinePhone device, this will do.
Once a proper PinePhone is acquired by a contributor, the dont-be-evil device should be renamed, and fixed appropriately.
This only adds support for the "short touchscreen cable" devkit.
The touchscreen has been verified as working.
The status of the device is that it basically works with feature parity to the other android-based devices.
To implement (in the future)
Those are simply "to-dos", not that there are issues implementing those, but that this port, as it is, supports as much of the pinephone as other android-based ports support their respective hardware.
This is co-opted from a now-unused previous usage. In reality, this means nothing.
What does this mean? This means that it's possible to get a *full* disk image for a u-boot using target. That full disk image can be flashed to a storage, e.g. an SD card, and should be fully bootable. It is expected that such u-boot using targets would be using u-boots with android-like configurations. Mainly, reading the boot.img and booting it. At the moment, this may be requiring a couple patches to u-boot.
I suspect it's pending people getting actual PinePhone hardware to test on. As far as I know mobile-nixos in general is very much still ongoing, and I suspect the interest around a PinePhone target is high. I'm intending to mess around with it (and hopefully contribute) once I receive the hardware myself.
Tnx for the info. Looking forward to pinephone shipping.…
