Everyone receiving their #PinebookPro laptops:
It appears that the factory has left the WiFi privacy switches turned ON. (WiFi disabled) 🤦♂️
To enable WiFi you'll need to disengage the privacy switch: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebook_Pro#Privacy_Switches
Welcome to all the new (soon-to-be) #PinebookPro and #Pinephone owners! We've got a blog post for you with the basics of what you need to know, and where to find more information or help, should you need it.
Our biggest ever production run of @PinebookPro is about to start shipping! Let's see how much everyone enjoys the @ManjaroARM build preinstalled on them. :)
We haven't been good at posting about updates here. We will try to be better at it, just so many things going on with all the nifty @PINE64 stuff!
But nevertheless. Here's a new #testing update for you all:
Right now @JF is testing the new #MCUBoot Bootloader on his #PineTime Smart Watch @PINE64 ... So exciting! 😀 https://lupyuen.github.io/pinetime-rust-mynewt/articles/dfutest
Hi #PineTime Firmware Devs: Here's the proposed Flash ROM Layout for PineTime... So that Owners of PineTime @PINE64 may easily update (and rollback) their firmware via Bluetooth https://lupyuen.github.io/pinetime-rust-mynewt/articles/dfu
I love how you're making it easy for end users to repair any issues themselves - it's the obvious first step to more ethical consumption, and I believe anything less should frankly be illegal.
One quick question: Do you have any ethical guidelines for the factories and natural resources used in the production of the products?
If yes, are these available anywhere?
If no, are you considering a line of more ethical (albeit expensive) products with more openness in this regard?
