LineageOS 14.1 Sustaining Build for HTC 10 (pme)

By request, I’ve added the HTC 10 (pme) to the LineageOS 14.1 “build rooster”. Same deal as all the other builds — generated weekly, available at https://lineageos.disavowed.jp/pme/ As a side note, I’d like to publicly thank Adam_J_T from the XDA forum for his very kind donation toward defraying server hosting costs.

LineageOS 14.1 sustaining builds for Moto Z Play and Moto G4

It appears that my LineageOS 14.1 sustaining build service has been well-received. Some folks have pinged me on XDA about adding more devices; there’s still enough space on the web server, so I’ve added them. Weekly builds for the Motorola Moto Z Play (addison) and Motorola Moto G4 (athene) are at https://lineageos.disavowed.jp/addison and https://lineageos.disavowed.jp/athene. As […]

LineageOS 14.1 security patch builds

I’ve resurrected a few of my older Android devices. They’re not supported by current LineageOS releases, and I really don’t like running gear without the latest security patches for obvious reasons. Completely understandably, LineageOS sundowned 14.1 builds quite some time ago. Security patches still show up in the source tree, though, with the intention of […]

Contacted by the bankruptcy trustee for “seven dreamers”

It appears that posting a quick precis on LinkedIn had immediate apparent results. The bankruptcy trustee sent me an email at around 0200 this morning. “It comes to our attention that you have a claim against Seven Dreamers Laboratories, and (we) have started investigation about your claim.” Included were a copy of the bankruptcy notice […]

seven dreamers, Haier, laundroid, Shin Sakane (阪根 信一), and Makoto Sato (佐藤 誠)

So … “seven dreamers” filed for bankruptcy on 23 April 2019. You might have seen it on Yahoo! Japan, slashdot.org, or engadget. They hired me on 28 February as a director to shepherd the Laundroid (styled “/laundroid”) to production ramp in time for Christmas. They tried to illegally cancel the accepted contract not too long […]

Finished and verified: SMD replacement boards for Horizon HRD+

As previously mentioned, I’ve been working on an old Horizon HRD+ RAMdisk card for the TI-99/4A. Three of the chips (a 74LS138, a 74LS154, and a 74LS259) had other chips stacked and soldered on top of them, with leads bent out and wires connecting to various places on the board. One chip (the 154) is […]

Real instructions on getting a Lantronix UDS-10 serial-to-Ethernet bridge working

The Lantronix UDS-10 is rather popular among the AtariAge TI-99/4A crowd. It’s basically one port of a Cisco 2511; it’s a bidirectional telnet-to-serial bridge. The TI folks use it to connect to the outside world, because it is extraordinarily unlikely that the TI will ever get even a ten-megabit PEB card, due to the screwed-up […]
