Purism and UBports officially collaborate to offer Ubuntu Touch on Librem 5
Successuflly unfucked my #OneplusOne. It's a pain in the ass, but this guide to recover from a #hardbrick still works: https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-one/general/guide-unbrick-oneplus-one-t3013732
It's #Windows only, and generally just a nightmare, but it worked. The OEM tool you need is chineese only, so the guide is just like "klick the square button", "choose the entry that looks different". Gotta love low-level #Android hell...
Now let's get #UbuntuTouch on this sucker!

I often forget that I'm living in a country that murdered innocent people by the millions less than 75 years ago. The thought of creating and maintaining infrastructure to efficiently kill people seems so mindbogglingly medieval. I can't wrap my head around it.
Seems like weeks after the crash, mastodon.rocks is still not connected to enough instances to allow for a smooth experience...
Is there any way a regular user can help improve federation? Would it maybe make sense to set up something like @federationbot ?
Condolences to the person running mastodon.rocks (which lost its database). I know that sinking feeling as you realize that something went wrong.
Let it be a serious reminder to everyone to have regular backups.
I've lost an entire VPS to Scaleway once, it wasn't even anything I did, their hardware just failed. Not having backups is living on the edge.
