    Cool, good to hear he's doing well. He came through for us when we needed him, several of us still have a working Pre 3 in our pockets because of Sumi batteries ... just tell him thanks.

    Surprisingly, there's no PinePhone specific image for Lineage, so I tried to build it myself based on a Youtube video I found. It kind of sort of works, but apparently there's no bootloader, so you have to launch it through a terminal window on your computer, which is kind of useless. In the mean time I've become a fan of Ubuntu Touch, and there's an Anbox spin called Waybox that's specific to Ubuntu Touch if I need to run any Android apps, it seems to work. The main guy behind the PinePhone also likes it, and he runs a thread on the PinePhone forum with tips and tricks for Ubuntu Touch almost daily, he even came up with a way to do OTA updates so we don't have to download the latest image and re-flash all the time. Ubuntu Touch is still in active development by a very good team of people, just not Canonical people. I'm not ready to switch my cell phone service to it yet, because the Pre 3 is still working great, but I'm becoming comfortable enough with this combination to have confidence in it as a replacement when the time comes.

    Thanks Herrie, that explains a lot regarding Sumi's delays etc.
    Please do me a big favour when you are next in touch with him anyway, and say that Robin in Melbourne (me!) is HANGING OUT for the final return of his repaired EVT 'Go'!
    He 'should' still have my address & $'s I sent him for postage etc.
