About My Devices

Need a bit of Work to Make Any Use of

  • DEXP Ursus P410: Completely dead. Unable to flash it, although it still appears in Device Manager (in Windows).
  • Huawei Y5 Lite: Needs a new battery, display, and quick resoldering of a little capacitor.
  • Oysters T72MR: Half-dead. Needs a new battery. Any type of network doesn't seem to work on it.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II (T03G): No display, charging PCB, and speaker.
  • Tecno Pouvoir 4: Dead display.

It Just Works

  • HMD Global Nokia 6: A few scratches here and there, the display is not glued in properly and, well, a slightly cracked glass in the lower bottom part. Its battery seems to have started giving up, although I don't care that much as its main use case is in being an additional monitor.
  • HMD Global Nokia 6.1: Scratched up. Flashed the mainline, simple framebuffer worked just fine, but I wasn't able to use USB (probably messed up something in the device tree) and Focaltech's touchscreen (I didn't know at the time that the another driver was compatible with it), so I'm not gonna push my DTS into the mainline as I'm quite sure that it is bad in many places. Downstream Kernel works just fine.
  • HomTom HT20: Dissolved the backplate... Quite literally... Used a bit too much acetone while cleaning it.
  • Huawei Honor 7C (AUM-L41). Slightly scratched up. Downstream Kernel works... fine, I guess? Needs to be reflashed via EDL (again...) for further work on it. (Why? I messed up partitions...)
  • Microsoft Lumia 650: One minor issue with the frame. Tried to compile the mainline, but... Nothing came out of it. (I'm not sure how to boot it via shell.)
  • Nokia N8: The overall condition is awful... But, it works, except for the SIM slot being screwed.
  • OnePlus 5: 8GB/128GB. Cracked glass in the back button's region. Severely burned-in.
  • Prestigio Visconte S: Was more or less fine before I installed Windows 10. The touchscreen just died there (random inputs all over upper part of the screen).

Corrected touchscreen rotation matrix /etc/udev/rules.d/99-visconte-touch.rules

ACTION!="remove", KERNEL="event[0-9]*",

Corrected accelerometer rotation matrix /etc/udev/hwdb.d/60-sensor.hwdb

  ACCEL_MOUNT_MATRIX=0, 1, 0; 1, 0, 0; 0, 0, 1
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II (T03G)
    • Overall: Restored to almost near-mint condition, with the main issue being the awfully burned-in screen (although I'm planning on getting another one, but for now this one will do) and me being lazy about attaching the NFC module.
    • May 6th, 2024: Tried booting it, but now only the recovery partition is accessible... I do have another moboard lying around, but I want to see if it would still be possible to run pmOS with only the recovery being flashable.

Patches (outdated)
CPU frequency is increased up to 1.6GHz; Thermal maps are changed accordingly to reflect the change to CPU frequency.
Shortened model name; CPU frequency is increased up to 1.7GHz; GPU frequency is increased up to 533MHz; Thermal maps are changed accordingly to reflect the change to CPU frequency; OTG mode changed to Host.

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (N9005)
    • Overall: The display is in pretty good shape for its age. The back plate had desolved to hell and back. The frame is quite damaged but that's not an issue for me at the moment. The battery is now a pillow straight from 2013™.

Devices I Had

  • alcatel 1 5033D: The display was in pretty rough shape.
  • BQ Mobile BQ-5016G Choice: The Micro-USB required resoldering.
  • Realme Narzo 50i Prime: The display was in pretty rough shape... Full-on web. Although, still worked fine, no artifacts or else.
  • TECNO SPARK 10C KI5m: The glue under screen started to come off, so the display is a bit unsecured on the left side. Slightly burnt screen in a few places.

Other Things

  • Dock station: EDD-S20EWE
