@solarkraft That is my understanding as well -- along with the L5 needing a bootloader blob for DDR training, while ours is open-source. 😉
Well if this is a thread to set records straight, would be nice not to mention just that: "bootloader blob for DDR training" but add that:
1 - The blob is kept isolated outside of the bootloader. And that makes a difference.
Like with the wifi/bt/baseband modem issues that both projects have to deal with by isolating them ;)
2 - That blob is needed for DDR4 memory training, which the Librem 5 uses, while the pinephone uses DDR3.
And here is the post where @purism explains the issue:
And we should all just be happy, that this year we have 3 linux phone projects rolling out, when last year we had none.
I wish we lived in a world were the biggest issue when talking about phones would be competing linux projects.
But our issue today is Android/iOS proprietary spyware, and lack of open hardware.
Could we focus on that instead of having this bickering
