[pivotCE]LuneOS February Stable Release: Chai Latte


Recommended Posts

So that’s been a long while already! 2 months passed since the last release and we’re finally back with a new release called “Chai Latte”. We have been working very hard behind the scenes in the past 2 months upgrading our various builds & build infrastructure!

So you’re asking what we have done? We have been doing lots of work to make our build & porting process more stable and straightforward. It’s now easier to create a new port for devices having a CM 12.1 (Android 5.1) based build available. Also initial work has been done in order to be able to use CM 13.0 (Android 6.0) based builds.

We have updated our Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) and Nexus 4 (Mako) build to a CM 12.1 based build. For the Maguro this solved the garbled audio issue that was present on our previous CM 10.1 based builds.

We also have a new target device running on CM 12.1 based build, the Nexus 5 (codename Hammerhead)!

We are fully aware that Cyanogen Inc stopped development of Cyanogen OS and also supporting the development of CyanogenMod by the community and all builds have been taken offline. At the time of writing the successor of CyanogenMod, LineageOS, is still in early stages of their setup and has just it’s initial builds, however this is not available for all target devices (yet). We’ll be re-assessing our source for builds at some point in the near future. The change to support LineageOS and/or AOSP directly should be fairly straight forward. 

Our RaspberryPi2 and RaspberryPi3 builds are currently building again and are included in the release this time. The UI is still not working for the RaspberryPi devices, but at least you should be able to get it to boot and connect via console.

Many other small items have been fixed as well, see below for more details of all the changes!

Known issues:

  • Node-SQLite3 is currently not working. Components using Node-SQLite3 have switched to an alternative storage method for now.
  • Focus bug on input fields. You can work around this by hiding the virtual keyboard and pressing the input again.

Feel free to to get started. Tenderloin, Mako, Hammerhead and Maguro remain our focus for now, but the emulator & Grouper work too.

Please note that in order to use the latest stable builds on the Galaxy Nexus (Maguro), Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) you need to flash the CM 12.1 images first using CWM/TWRP. In order to do so, you might be required to do a “factory reset” or at least “wipe cache”. CWM/TWRP will indicate when this is needed. After successfully flashing CM 12.1, make sure to boot it at least once before going back to CWM/TWRP to flash the latest LuneOS image! We have provided links to CM 12.1 for these 3 images on our device pages below.

Installation instructions for , , , , and are on the . And remember we .

Don’t forget to contact us with any questions and feel free to . Catch us on Twitter on IRC: Freenode:#webos-ports or email [email protected]

We will see you in March with a new release!

We have the following items on our to-do list to focus on:

  • Get the camera working
  • Work on Yocto Morty/Pyro upgrade
  • Investigate feasibility of QT 5.7/5.8 Upgrade
  • UI tweaks
  • Messaging improvements

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin

      Hi, I have a feature request for the sound out setting. I often connect my Bluetooth headphones to the TV. We don't use the internal speaker of the TV, we use the optical sound out setting whenever I don't use Bluetooth. It would make our lives a lot easier if the TV can remember the last sound out setting before connecting to Bluetooth and default back to this setting when the Bluetooth device gets disconnected. At the moment, each time I disconnect the headphones I have to go back into settings and change the sound out setting from internal speaker to optical again. 
      Thanks and regards

      I have set up a hard disc, that I can see in the home menu, but when I go to the guide and select the "i" it only gives me the option to watch. I am very new to smart television and I can't figure out how to correct this problem.

      Hi just got a new QNED LG to replace 2021 Nano tv
      the problem is I can’t move my HD channels down to  channels 1 to5.
      the program manager does not have the function to move channels like my old Nano tv which is only a year older.
      is there anyway I can get around this strange function?
