Post some piccies and a quick write up if you get the chance.
You may like to change default home app. With wonderful keyboard available, KISS launcher or T-UI will be delight to use.I also have encountered my, 'first frustration'.
On the Gemini, my phone, most modern Android devices, you can long press an app then drag it onto another to create a folder to group apps in. That isn't working for me. Not sure if there is a hidden setting somewhere I have to change.
Nova Launcher is great. Have to pay for some features but it's mostly free.Google search bar taking up a 5 icon wide chunk of real estate IS annoying. I am considering getting an alternate launcher. Does anyone have a favorite that works well on a default landscape device?
lolYou may think the original and best launcher of all time has not been updated, because people assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like we released this update 3 years ago and you didn’t realize. Don’t worry, we understand not everyone has…1.21 gigawatts!! to spend
It uses libhybris, basically a wrapper for the existing android drivers/blobs in the android partition. Even a "full" linux install will retain those android drivers/blobs.Good question. I've downloaded the install zip and unpacked the geminus image. Listing the files inside that, I can't find anything in /usr/lib/firmware or usr/share/licenses which is where Arch-linux puts binary blobs, so I don't know where it stored its binary blobs, but nothing has struck me so far as being a binary blob.
The "full" linux install almost does. It just leaves a minimal android filesystem for the blobs which the linux partition references.Ah, so you can't actually blat the android partition and just run linux then? Disappointing.
