@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Tiziano> Hi, i have a rockpro64 that often , when power supply is connected, does not boot until power is pressed 16:38:10
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Tiziano> is there a way to bypass / disable that power button thing? 16:38:24
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Tiziano> completely useless for my purpose 16:38:29
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Tiziano, please ask in https://t.me/mtrx_rock64 16:38:38
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Mr> hi peoples, idk if this is the correct place to make this question, sorry if i'm wrong, anyway... i have an old pineA64 1gb with lcd display, i cannot find all the os that were available at the time when i bought it, where can i find them now? os like android 5 that was working with lcd for exhample 17:25:16
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Mr> tnx in advance for any reply 17:25:28
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [I] <PaulFertser> Tiziano: the cause is known, do you feel like trying a hardware hack? 17:25:37
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Mr, best to ask in the Pine A64 channel, https://t.me/pine64sopine 17:29:19
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Mr, the old Android releases can still be grabbed from the history of the wiki page. I removed them because no one should use such old software ever 17:30:51
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Actually, I don't think there was an Android 5 release at all 17:32:14
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> earliest releases are typically ~ Android 8 17:32:38
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Actually I found them here: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php?title=PINE_A64_Software_Releases&oldid=11699#Android_Image_Releases Mind the date (2017). Usage at own risk 17:34:35
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Don't connect them to the Internet, that would make you legally liable 17:34:58
@gullfff:matrix.orggullfffi was told the pine64 devices dont ship with an opensource bios or i might be misremembering but what will the new tablet ship with??17:54:43
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Mr> where can i find android 8.1 os for my pine A64 with 1gb ram? and will it support lcd touch display? 18:00:06
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> ARM devices don't have a BIOS, gullfff 18:00:13
@gullfff:matrix.orggullfffohhh damn wait hold on a minute18:00:36
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> Mr, would suggest that you ask in https://t.me/pine64sopine, as we're in the general channel here 18:00:48
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [T] <Mr> tnx 18:02:08
@gullfff:matrix.orggullfffi just checked with openai and it seems to be true that arm is for mobile /tablet devices and only has firmware based ai, so the firmware is opensource i suppose and what about pinebook? i noticed it said arm aswell but its a laptop, so shouldnt it have its own bios?18:04:57
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <c4tdrout> no? 18:08:49
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> gullfff, you probably mean to ask about proprietary driver or firmware blobs. Best to ask that on a per-device basis in the corresponding channels. Devices like the Pinebook Pro do have proprietary blobs, though necessarily mandatory 18:11:15
@p64protocolbot:matrix.orgPine64 Protocol Droid [D] <Funeral> not necessarily* 18:11:24
@gullfff:matrix.orggullfffi was just told coreboot is great and panicked when pine products didnt have it, but im out of my depth here still thx18:14:05
