Fairly popular device based on reference Qualcomm design. Initialy shipped with CyanogenOS. There is also another device called GeneralMobile 4g (Android One device) that is very similar with this one.

Problems

  • Microphones are unuseable at the moment
  • Mainline kernel doesn't have charger drivers
  • No MAC addresses on boot at the moment

You can get WiFi working by adding /etc/local.d/wcnss.start with this content (put your MAC in)

#!/bin/sh

ifconfig wlan0 hw ether AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

nmcli radio all off
nmcli radio all on

and making ir executeable with sudo chmod +x /etc/local.d/wcnss.start
