  • pineeye_for_pinephone

    Thermal imaging board aimed to be used with the PinePhone.

  • Good question. I am not sure about a killer app, but killer features - for sure. The ability to dock the phone via USB-C and use it as a desktop; attach the keyboard add-on and have your own PDA-type device with LTE; hacking additional functionality into the phone via the pogo pins (example); hardware privacy switches; or simply using taking 2-3 easily sourcable spare batteries with you on a mountain trek... I think there are a few things the PinePhone / PinePhone Pro can do that very few devices in this form factor can.

  • coreboot

    Mirror of https://review.coreboot.org/coreboot.git. We don't handle Pull Requests.

  • The RK3399 LPDDR4 training code is open-source (albeit rather impenetrable to read) - implementations exist in coreboot, u-boot, and levinboot, so closed source firmware isn't required. I'm afraid I don't know answers to the other questions.

  • u-boot

    "Das U-Boot" Source Tree

  • The RK3399 LPDDR4 training code is open-source (albeit rather impenetrable to read) - implementations exist in coreboot, u-boot, and levinboot, so closed source firmware isn't required. I'm afraid I don't know answers to the other questions.

  • Jumpdrive

    Flash/Rescue SD Card image for PinePhone and PineTab. This is NOT a bootloader

  • Switching the OS is extremely easy. All it takes is putting in a microSD card imaged with the new system (or to flash the eMMC with a tool like Jumpdrive, once it gains the support for the Pro).

  • waydroid

    Waydroid uses a container-based approach to boot a full Android system on a regular GNU/Linux system like Ubuntu.

  • The advantage of running standard Linux is that you can run basically any software you could on a Linux PC (barring architecture incompatibility). There's also potential privacy benefits, as there isn't the same philosophy of tracking your every action like there is on Android. And if you still need Android apps, there's stuff like Waydroid to help.

  • glodroid_manifest

    Android port that aims to bring both user- and developer-friendly experience in using AOSP with a set of single-board computers (SBC), phones and other devices.

  • Not sure if you know this but there is an AOSP build for the OG PinePhone running mainline Linux with patches.

  • cryptsetup-nuke

    A cryptsetup patch which adds the option to nuke all keyslots given a certain passphrase for Ubuntu

  • Easily. You can use https://github.com/roema/cryptsetup-nuke to do it at boot time, you can use an evil-maid tool to detect and wipe luks at init-time if the boot partition was tampered with, and just cryptsetup erase /dev/...; echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger to wipe the luks header and immediately force a hard reboot

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
