    Yes, one thing I think we can be clear on is that the Pyra, to date, is not exactly what you could ever call an impulse buy!

    Incidentally, welcome on board :)

    Well we've seen a lot of "shut up and take my money" meme's that would indicate not only impulse buys but actually intended missing of bits of information... hence the shut up part.

    Most people have has time to cool down and reflect on that by now, surely?

    Although I do agree with @WizardStan that people rarely read, well anything.

    Look at the version control system and see exactly what everyone is doing, that way you are always updated.
    Smaller updates and information can be found on IRC.

    Pyra GIT repository
    https://dev.pyra-handheld.com
    but probably just: https://dev.pyra-handheld.com/explore/projects

    Pandora GIT repository (new u-boot!)
    http://git.openpandora.org/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi

    IRC channel howto
    https://pandorawiki.org/IRC

    and instead of #openpandora use #dragonbox-pyra

    but probably just: https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#dragonbox-pyra

    Telegram group

    Don't have a Pandora with Telegram? There is a desktop version: https://desktop.telegram.org/


    and last, but not least:

    Kernel Mailing list

    The Pandora GIT repository is updated on a ~daily basis, I guess OP uboot isn't.

    slightly off topic - but there is something I am unclear on re the Pyra. I get that the mobile edition has features that the non-mobile edition doesn't e.g. compass, GPS etc. Now none of those extras are of interest to me but what about haptics/rumble? (Important when emulating PlayStation, N64, DreamCast) Can anybody confirm if all versions of the Pyra will have this or is will that be limited to the mobile version?

    I know in the past we as a collective voiced the need to have the haptic motor on the non-mobile versions just for this reason. Hopefully that can still happen.

    Thanks I check the kernel mailing list every day, but I have the feeling a lot of developping is happening elsewhere (and mostly outside of the kernel) Will check tha git repository and I know about the IRC do come there once in a while.

    I really like following these type of things, sometimes I even pick up trains of thought I can use in my work.

    As has already been stated, we still get rumble on all editions. The omitted modem chip on the standard non-cellular units gives the 4G users cellular connections and GPS/GLONASS. I had thought there was something else omitted on those non-cellular units, but everything else from barometer, compass, gyro/accelerometers come from different chips, so I can only assume that everyone gets those.

    Yep, there are extra Bosch chips that are responsible for the sensor function and an extra "rumble motor".

    Thanks levi. Mind pointing me to where this was already stated?

    You mean it hasn't been confirmed? :eek:
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 12, 2019 at 9:31 AM, Original Post Date: Jul 12, 2019 at 9:28 AM ---
    And all Pyra editions get these chips?
