We're very excited (and a little bit nervous :D) that @FOSDEM@twitter.com is planning to go virtual this year via Matrix for chat/community, using @jitsinews@twitter.com for the video conferencing. Read all about it (and how you might be able to help!): matrix.org/blog/2021/01/04/tak

I've just published version 0.10.0 of for @PINE64

It contains modifications and fixes from many different contributors and brings 2 games : a single player pong game (Paddle) and a 2048 clone game (2).

Thanks to everyone who created PR on the project!


New test release of the new MCUBoot-based bootloader for @PINE64 : github.com/JF002/pinetime-mcub

If you have an opened devkit and a SWD setup to recover your device in case of issue, please test it and report your results!

@fnetX In the present, it's a bit limited in cpu power, but I guess that in the future, we'll have more cpu cores and more ram :)

Does anyone know of a Peertube instance specialized in music, or at least where posting music wouldn't be out of place?
I'd like to mirror my YouTube channel on the Fediverse but I'm not sure where to go.
Boosts appreciated!

A few people have already succesfully tested the bootloader, thanks!

I've added 3 firmwares that can be used to test how the bootloader handles specific degraded cases. More info in the release note: github.com/JF002/pinetime-mcub.

@fnetX Yes, the display is connected to the phone via a USB-C HUB, nothing else ;)

@kai Yes, the display is connected to the phone via a USB-C hub. It's way slower than my dev computer, but still usable. I browsed the web, youtube, cloned a git repo, and built and debug it locally !

@0x1C3B00DA I browsed the web, even youtube, downloaded a repo from Git, built and debug it locally.

Of course, it's slower than my dev computer, but I think it's awesome to be able to plug your phone on any hdmi display and just use it as a computer!

@robots Yes, I can't wait to show that off to friends and family!

@Blort I haven't done extensive test since I've upgraded the board, so I cannot say for now. But I did notice that it built Amazfish without using the swap, so, yeah, the additional RAM is useful !

@ivanrancic It's just laying on my desk... any idea what I could do with it?

And it (USB, Ethernet, HDMI, VGA) also works with my random and cheap USB-C hub !

using the @PINE64 and : USB, Ethernet, HDMI and VGA work out of the box!

Ok, it looks like my outdated alpha version of @ManjaroARM does not support dual screen correctly, but still, it works !
