I guess that depends on what shipping method you chose. Different shippers will have different ways of notifying you. I assume you got your 'your unit is ready' email, and have gone through the order process, just not had anything since then?Congratulations! Now I wonder why I didn't got the shipment email yet. I'm number 78 and completed the payment like 3 weeks ago.

That's an approach that slows the pace of technical progress!Congrats! However, most of us are still waiting, so I'd prefer if ED doesn't start his next project just yet!
apt update apt full-upgrade
apt search mail apt install thunderbird
apt remove thunderbird apt autoremove
Thanks for the info, yesterday I lurked through the support section and Matzesu first attempts with his Pyra were quite informative. So set it up, updated, got some software up and running.Congrats on your Pyra.
Good thing ED send the device to you after the american election
Most things work best from the terminal.
Open the terminal.
That is what I was looking into. Red charging light never happened to me. Turning on (green light) happened a couple of times.and then the Red LED on the Button should light up as an indicator its charges..
The charging chip (BQ24297) will not connect the battery if the battery voltage is <2.5V (battery short circuit protection).That said, battery is out and being force charged now (it's starting voltage was 3.4V, which is far above em
That's some cool info, thanks a lot. I can confirm that the battery was not out of these normal operation specs.The charging chip (BQ24297) will not connect the battery if the battery voltage is <2.5V (battery short circuit protection).
Below 3.0V, the chip will only trickle charge the battery at 128mA so as not to overheat the potentially damaged battery (precharge).
Between 3V and 3.5V we are supposed to get all the current you can from the charger (up to 2A by default settings).
However, the charging chip will let the system draw current from the battery if the battery voltage is above 3.0V when the charger is not powerful enough to supply the CPU and system demand. So, if the CPUs are running and pulling more power than your power supply can provide, the battery could still discharge down to 3.0V. The operating system should do a shutdown when the voltage drops below 3.5V though.
Unfortunately, the pyra boots up when a power cable is plugged in. Is there a situation where we can't charge a battery when the charger and the battery are not strong enough to boot the operating system? Once the system boots, you can then shutdown, or leave to charge whist idle. I guess this happens with the battery < 3.6V.
for those who want to keep score at home, #100 (standard, black) just shipped.
Which port are you using to charge? Have you tried one half of the micro-USB 3.0 port?That's some cool info, thanks a lot. I can confirm that the battery was not out of these normal operation specs.
I was able to pump 5258 mAh into the removed battery with a dedicated charger. This means that the battery is quite healthy, end voltage 4.2V under end charging current of 0.2A. Once installed in my Pyra battery gauge showed 92%. Played a bit with the device, charge dropped to 85%. I've let it cool down (to around 15C), turned off and started trying all my USB chargers and cables starting from 0.5A all the way up to 5A capable. Zero success - red charging light never lit up in the OFF state. One time Pyra lit the green lid light and turned on, but the battery menu didn't show any charging progress while idling.
Any ideas or suggestions? I do not believe that both charging ports could be physically broken out of the box simultaneously.
There are a few ways we can see the charge current:I've tried both. In different states (ON and OFF). With different chargers and cables. That's the reason I am so puzzled
