Hello Nikolaus,

ok, got it! Once again thank you very much!

But I need to beg you for some time. On the one hand I'm very excited to 
check the new verison after such a long time, on the other hand I already 
have been very busy at the moment before your announcement reached me. Now 
I need to see what will when be possible to be done...

Best regards
   Sven

Hello Nicolaus, 

very good news! 

> Downloads: http://download.goldelico.com/letux-debian-rootfs/?C=M;O=D - 
look for *-qtmoko.tbz 

I can find: 

  - 0180222-wheezy-7.11-armhf-qtmoko.tbz 2018-02-22 01:48  174M 
  - latest-armhf-qtmoko.tbz 2018-02-21 19:03  198M 
  - 20180221-jessie-8.10-armhf-qtmoko.tbz 2018-02-21 19:03  198M 
  - 20180216-jessie-8.10-armhf-qtmoko.tbz 2018-02-16 19:34  198M 
  - 20180216-wheezy-7.11-armhf-qtmoko.tbz 2018-02-16 17:11  174M 
  - 20180113-wheezy-7.11-armhf-qtmoko.tbz 2018-01-13 12:35  174M 

Which one is recommended? 

The

latest-armhf-qtmoko.tbz

which is the same as

20180221-jessie-8.10-armhf-qtmoko.tbz

The wheezy variant doesn't support modern kernels well.

You know: I like QtMoko because of its Finxi theme and no other! Beyond 
that I widely leave it up on you how to go best into the future...    ;-) 

So maybe you can help to make the Finxi theme work again...
I am not sure if themes already work.

BR,
Nikolaus


Best regards 
   Sven

Hi, 
I am happy to announce that after years of 
abandonment and obsolescence, QtMoko is back in 
maintained mode. 

After several failed attempts, we now have a git 
tree and a build system where we can apply 
modifications and accept patches. And we 
need testers :) 

Currently, we have a Wheezy and a Jessie based 
(different git branches) and both run on the 
GTA04(A3, A4, A5) with latest Letux kernels. 

Basically QtMoko also starts and runs on the Pyra, 
but there is nothing to see on the display yet. 
It simply remains black... 

Here are the key resources: 

Project Home:        http://projects.goldelico.com/p/gta04-qtmoko/ - also 
for reporting issues 
Git:        http://git.goldelico.com/?p=gta04-qtmoko.git;a=heads 
Downloads:        
http://download.goldelico.com/letux-debian-rootfs/?C=M;O=D - look for 
*-qtmoko.tbz 
Install on µSD:        DEV=/dev/sdb ./makesd qtmoko - to install a Jessie 
based system 
Letux-Debian:        apt-get install letux-qtmoko - to install if you have 
installed a different Letux system 

Here are screen photos of QtMoko/Jessie/Kernel-4.15.2 
running on a GTA04:

Some things are not yet working and missing and 
some Apps crash after starting, but we are just at 
the beginning to be able to fix things. 

Of course our little team can't do all that alone. 
We need you and the broader community to help with 
coding, testing or simply donations if you appreciate 
our effort:

BR and thanks,
