We just released #coreboot 4.16. Check out the release notes here https://doc.coreboot.org/releases/coreboot-4.16-relnotes.html #firmware #opensource #hardware
so someone uploaded a .apk package to the main #postmarketOS, with instructions to use the "--allow-untrusted" flag to install it. That flag disables package signing in apk, which is *really* bad idea.
Turns out, this package that was posted seems like it was almost certainly malware.
How to install coreboot on a Lenovo x230
I already use coreboot on my Lenovo W500 with FreeBSD. I bought a Lenovo x230 for a nice price. I decide to install coreboot on it.
As my installation notes might be useful for other people I decided to create a blog post about it.
We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

Privacy is a human right. Stand up for that right with a donation to Tor.
I expect to be able to recommend the Unicomp New M after a week or two of using it. Loud, but feels nice. Keycaps are very easy to replace and they offer a number of replacement sets. The "Linux Tux" set I got includes, in addition to the Tux keys, an Esc key that fits in the left-Super spot, as well as reversed Ctrl and Caps Lock keys and a gray ~ ` key; I didn't use any of these.
Use unbound as an DNS-over-TLS resolver and authoritative dns server v2.0.0
I migrated to unbound last year and created a docker container for it. I migrated the container to Debian Bullseye reorganize it a bit to make it easier to store the zones configuration outside the container like a configmap or pv on Kubernetes.
Version 2.0.0 is available at https://github.com/stafwag/docker-stafwag-unbound
Ansible role: virt_install_vm 1.0.0 released
I wrote a few articles how to use cloud images with cloud-init on a “non-cloud” environment.
I finally took the time to create an Ansible role for it. You’ll find the READE.md below.
Virt_install_vm 1.0.0 is available at: https://github.com/stafwag/ansible-role-virt_install_vm
Tadaa, a #pinenote showing its own schematics. It seems like the size of the pages of schematics is almost perfect for this.
I just upgrade to biktorgj's FOSS modem firmware and documented the steps here: https://sspaeth.de/2021/08/flashing-the-foss-modem-firmware-on-the-pinephone/ Calls/SMS/data work fine. Incoming calls ring fast! Great work biktorgj (https://github.com/Biktorgj)
