Replicant 6 support for devices

Added by Fil Lupin 5 months ago

Hello,
I read into https://blog.replicant.us/2017/09/a-new-replicant-6-0-release/ that 12 devices are supported by Replicant 6, but the page https://www.replicant.us/supported-devices.php mentions only 9 devices.
I suppose this page does not mention the devices results of the last efforts done on Replicant 6. Perhaps an update could be done?
Thank you for all this work. :)

Or perhaps I misunderstood the sense of the page. Someone to clarify the details? :)

I also noticed that I9305 (Samsung Galaxy S3 4G) seems to be better target for Replicant since GPS is partly free userspace.
It is maintained in page https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/ReplicantStatus but uncompleted on page https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/GalaxyS3I9305. I wondered what is needed to complete it?
Wolfgang : I saw you worked on it recently, perhaps you have some informations?

I add I understand from https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/27/topics/2175 , https://redmine.replicant.us/issues/1813 and https://redmine.replicant.us/issues/1834 that a research on modem integration was still in progress 2 months ago.
Don't know if this is still the case.

In addition, I suggest to update section "Choosing the best Replicant-supported device" of page https://www.replicant.us/freedom-privacy-security-issues.php#recommendations
I am not sure it is up-to-date since Replicant v6.

RE: Replicant 6 support for devices - Added by Fil Lupin about 2 months ago

up since I got some answers confirming the website is not up to date.

It seems very important to update it since it is the first and natural point of contact for anyone new to Replicant. Especially, the supported devices seems very important since people can choose a device because of this list.

If I can help, let me know. If not, does anyone can update the website with current up-to-date information?
It would avoid buying a bad device.

After reading https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/3/topics/14817 I understand the correct page is https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/ReplicantStatus since Fil Bergamo seems actively implied in Replicant.

In addition to a clarification of the supported devices (which is still essential for me), I would like to suggest a red/orange/green coloration of the tab to identify more easily the interesting devices according to the priorities of the reader.

I do not have the rights to make modification but these are easy to do.

Hoping this will help to enhance communication. :)

Up in case some active Replicant developer read this.

Hi,

I read your messages, and I honestly have no precise answer.
I think the 12 vs. 9 devices question is a non-issue, as it's only a matter of how you interpret the blog post you cited

The status page seems adequately updated to me.

As for generally keeping the website up to date, it is a task somebody has to call upon themselves.
I currently have no time to do any activity related to website maintenance other than sparse forum moderation and answering people on the forum.

I know GNUtoo posted some patches for the website a few days ago.
I suggest you write to the mailing list, specifically addressing to GNUtoo.
The same goes for asking wiki privileges. Please send an email to the mailing list, together with a precise description of the edits you'd like to do.
If any "senior" maintainer reads that, they could possibly give you the adequate permissions to put your suggestions in practice.

As a final note: please don't bump forum posts so often.
If nobody has answered your questions in some days or months, it usually means nobody has an answer or that the answer doesn't exist.
If you worry that nobody read your questions, then using a different channel is a much better solution (mailing list and IRC above all).
Continuously bumping a forum thread only serves the purpose of pushing other threads down the "recently updated" list, possibly hurting other people's questions and still doing no good to help you get an answer.

Happy hacking,

Fil
