The possibility of getting the E/OS to the Cosmo Communicator

Hello,

The cosmo communicator is an open device with creativity in mind. I just the unit and I was wondering if ‘E’ would be interested in getting the cosmo communicator the E/OS.

I became acquainted with e/OS with my FAIRPHONE3 and I really appreciate the software. Just have the privacy in hand leaps beyond my expectation.

But it would be nice to see it on the Cosmo.

Is it running Android ? If yes, which version is it running ?

Planetcom’s wed site seems dedicated to selling products rather than providing information. However it does say the communictor can multiboot into Android, Sailfish, Debian Linux or Kali Linux. It appears to run Android 8 but the site is so confusing it is difficult to be sure.

Hello,

It is Android 9 and for Linux side the kernel is here.

Me I think it is doable, it allows the Android to be rooted without any issues. It is multiple boots very well, but Sailfish is not yet available except for the Gemini device which was the previous device.

Here is the LineageOS 14.1 that was developed for the Gemini which was the previous version.

It looks like a cool device. Have you been using one? If yes, how would you rate it?

I just got it because they had 40% off the price, I think it has good potentials.

It is running Android 9

you can try using a GSI, but really not sure if that will work

I have looked at this, but no. The day will come, for now KDE Plasma is being maintain on several phones including this one.

But my interest is the privacy aspect and the security updates. It turns out that Planet Computers has to modifies android to suit their preference, updates including security fixes must by created by the OEM.
Planet Computers doesn’t even use the stock android updater, they use some 3rd party app. And it has not seen a security since April 2020.
