Pine64 January 2023 Update (Unofficial) – PineBuds FOSS Firmware, PineTab 2 Video Output & More
Pine64S monthly news report is somewhat late this month. Consequently, Ive decided to take it upon myself to produce an unofficial news report, as I dont have any Insider. Pi 64 knowledge. This video will mainly focus on community updates. That said, though, theres still a lot of exciting news to cover so be sure to keep watching first up lets talk about the phone that everyone is planning for the pine phone. Actually, I suppose that joke could work with any of pine64s products. Oh well, first mobian, a port of Debian for the pine phone has announced that its now offering an experimental kernel that works on both the pine phone and the pine phone Pro. As far as I can tell, both devices should benefit from a shared code base its great to see the pine phone Pro come such a long way in such a relatively short period of time, thanks to a why and on death for their work. Work on this kernel next up in Pine phone news, sailfish OS now has a cam wrap that works on the pine phone. Surely great news for your referee Instagram cat pic needs. Sailfish OS has generally been making huge strides towards being daily drivable on the pine phone. This month, the camera was enabled not long after that an app called pinhole was developed to let end users take advantage of these changes. As you can see, the results are quite impressive. As far as Im concerned.
Sailfish OS is an uncomplicated operating system that anyone can get to grips with now that it has camera support. Among other things, it should be a good choice for people who want a simple and uncomplicated Pine phone experience, thanks to Adam Peck, for enabling the camera on sale. Fish OS next lets talk some Pine tab. The pine Tab, 2 hasnt even been released yet and were already seeing, May major strides in Hardware support for the device. For instance, pine64 have recently demoed video output working as someone who frequently uses this feature on my iPad, its great to know that Ill be able to use it with my Pine Tab 2 as well. I also think that this feature really opens up the possibility of using the pine Tab 2 as a laptop replacement, as it could be docked to the desk. Really the pine Tab 2 does have a bright future ahead of it. Now lets talk about the pine book. Recently, risk OS has been plotted to the device. Riskos is an interesting operating system, quite unlike any other, its designed from the ground up for limited instructions at computers, and it has quite a long and interesting history that dates back to the 1980s and acorn computers. Unlike Linux, which is just a kernel, riskos is a complete operating system with a GUI and several basic applications. It also has its own app store, complete with numerous applications for you to download and try out.
Furthermore, the operating system should be quite fast, as the kernel is written entirely in highly efficient arm assembly. Anyone interested in trying out this interesting detour from Linux can now install it on their Pine book or a64 singleboard computer thanks to an alpha image available for those devices that has been released recently Pine Book Pro owners also have a lot to look forward to, as Is an image for the rk3’9 soc being worked on thatll be released in the near future? Just if you do happen to use risk OS dont tell talks, you wont believe what kind of a state a jealous penguin can get into, and here comes my favorite part of the video. The part where we talk about the pine buds Pro because I love headphones. Last month, the pine buds Pro were released, theyre excellent buds that provide great sound quality and features at an excellent price. This month, several developers have already made the pinebuds pro better by developing open firmware for the bods two examples of this are little buddy and the pine buds open source SDK. One of those names is catchier than the other. Both of these projects support most of the main features on the blind buds. Pro, though there are some features currently lacking, most notably ANC. However, if youre a brave Pine Bloods Pro owner, who refuses to use any non free software, these firmwares might be for you. Finally, before we start with some miscellaneous news, lets talk about the ox 64.
For those who dont know the ox. 64 is pine64s, first risk 5 single board computer, it isnt remotely intended for everyday tasks and, as far as Im aware, it occupies a similar position in the market as the Raspberry Pi Pico. However, several exciting use cases may have just opened up for the device as developer Thanos. The Tank Engine, which has to be the best name ever, has recently got video output working personally, and I dont know if this is possible Id be interested in seeing some sort of ox 64 Retro Gaming handheld. To finish off this video Im going to talk about some news that doesnt really fit anywhere else. Manjaro have recently shipped Hardware video decoding for rock trip device devices to end users. That means that users of all Pi 64 devices can benefit from Hardware video decoding. That should be helpful to any owners of lower end Pi 64 devices that can often struggle to play high resolution. Video. The only downside to this is that it requires you to install custom builds of MPV or coding with all that said, its been an exciting month of 0.
