Tehnoetic S2 phones pre-installed with Replicant

Added by Tiberiu T about 5 years ago

Hello,

My shop is now selling refurbished S2's with Replicant pre-installed:

https://tehnoetic.com/tehnoetic-s2-phone-replicant

The product is promoted by the recently released FSF's Ethical Tech Giving Guide:

https://www.fsf.org/givingguide/

FSFE is also happy to promote it as part of the Free Your Android campaign.

I am already in touch with Paul. Any feedback or orders from this forum would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Congrats!
This shop looks great.

And thanks for the hint on your site to get Wi-Fi with an adapter to work.
I'll definitely order one (https://tehnoetic.com/tehnoetic-wireless-adapter-gnu-linux-libre-tet-n150).

Just one thing. You write under [Specification]:
  • Compatibility with free software
    • Cameras: Work both back and front
  • Technical
    • Camera: Back [...] video 1080p@30fps [...]

But you don't write that video encoding (recording) isn't working on Replicant, yet.
Little summary about that topic: https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/9/topics/11505?r=11607#message-11607
By the way, even 1080p@30fps video decoding (playback) is impossible on that device: https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/9/topics/11505?r=11547#message-11547

Probably you should consider to indicate that fact somewhere, to avoid disappointments of some people/customers...

Thank you, you are right. I have made the necessary corrections. Please let me know if everything is okay now.

RE: Tehnoetic S2 phones pre-installed with Replicant - Added by My Self almost 5 years ago

Thanks for the consideration. In my eyes, everything is OK now.

I'm not able to figure out where this hint is to get the wi-fi dongle to work. I'm not finding instructions on Replicant's page anywhere either. Any chance someone could post some more info about how to do this? Prob would be a good thing to put in the wiki at some point.

I'm assuming the kernal needs to be changed to get the wifi dongle working? Did you get it to work? Do you have the new compiled kernal online somewhere?

RE: Tehnoetic S2 phones pre-installed with Replicant - Added by Tiberiu T almost 5 years ago

I'm sorry it took me more than expected to find the time to work again on this.

I have recently been able to build the necessary kernel modules and I did a bit of testing of the Tehnoetic mini wifi adapter using iwconfig on the Tehnoetic S2 phone running Replicant 4.2 0004.

Original announcement here:

I am now looking for documentation on how to make the new wlan0 interface manageable with the GUI.

I will soon post the system I built, after I review the patches and publish them. Thanks for your patience.

Please read how to get WiFi working in Replicant while still using exclusively free software:

https://wiki.tehnoetic.com/doku.php?id=tehnoetic_wifi_replicant

Tested with Tehnoetic S2 and two of the Tehnoetic N150 WiFi adapters (the Mini and the High Gain Antenna ones).
