[pivotCE]LuneOS November Stable Release: Doppio

Recommended Posts

The very long wait is over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re finally back with a new release called “Doppio” which we believe will be a milestone in terms of developments and the way forward!

So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to for the past year?

Well, actually a whole lot to be honest! We have upgraded the bluetooth stack from BlueZ4 to BlueZ5 which required quite some work to the kernels. This has been successfully completed for the Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead); unfortunately to date we haven’t been able to get this to work on the Touchpad (4G) (Tenderloin).

We have been working closely together with the Halium project and have made further integrations between LuneOS and Halium reducing duplication between the projects and using a single source where possible. This all to be more easily integrated, and to facilitate ports to newer devices. We have upstreamed our kernel patches (mainly to fix GCC 5/6/7/8 compatibility) to Halium so we can use a shared kernel for our targets.

Talking about new devices we’ve been working on: Since Google dropped the (budget) Nexus line and launched the (premium) Pixel line, we’ve been looking for other targets that are easily available, budget friendly and have good community support. We quickly ended up with Xiaomi which makes phones with decent specs, unlockable bootloader (the process is a bit tedious, but it’s do-able) and the phones give very good value for money.

This has resulted in us independently working on 3 different Xiaomi devices being the RedMi Note 4x (Mido), RedMi 5 (Rosy) and Mi A1 (Tissot).  These are all Aarch64 devices using the Snapdragon 625 chipset. We didn’t have any Aarch64 devices before and also they are based upon Halium 7.1 (Android 7.1) while all our previous targets were based upon Halium 5.1 (Android 5.1), so this brought a whole bunch of new challenges. There are still a few rough edges, but audio, sensors, wifi and bluetooth are now working. There was also quite some porting work done for some of the other Halium supported targets such as the OnePlus X (onyx), Google/Huawei Nexus 6P (angler) and Motorola G4 (athene). These are currently in various stages of development, whereby OnePlus X is the most mature.

The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a strategic device for us which we chose in cooperation with LG, to get LuneOS running on it and also as a target for LG’s webOS OSE (Open Source Edition).

came as a surprise to us, however it has great potential. Though the initial release of webOS OSE was very limited and therefore limited use case for people not being very familiar with webOS, it does offer a lot of potential for us. webOS OSE is basically 5 years of development of the core webOS bits since Open webOS was released. It has been deployed in millions of LG TV’s since and offers great improvements in terms of reliability and functionality. The big downside however is that there’s no record of the changes between Open webOS and webOS OSE, so this is making the migration a bit more challenging.

Early June the LuneOS team met with LG in Paris to discuss collaboration between our teams. As a result of this we have chosen the Xiaomi A1 as a device to port LuneOS to. This is now at a level similar to our other targets.

After this release we will therefore focus on migrating our Open webOS components to the updated components provided by webOS OSE. This will bring quite some challenges and hurdles along the way, however we’re positive that we can complete this migration and it will bring a lot of improvements in terms of code quality, stability, functionality and reducing the need for maintaining a lot of these components ourselves since we can share a common codebase with LG’s webOS OSE going forward.

LG has a very clear vision in mind for webOS. Since the initial release in March, a and

The following items on our to-do list will be where we focus next:

  • Migration of Open webOS components to the newer webOS OSE components.
  • Make the VirtualBox image work with a newer MESA.
  • Migrate to Yocto Sumo/Thud release.
  • Messaging improvements.
  • Camera improvements.
  • Fix known issues on the various targets.
  • Bring back official support for Touchpad 4G (current build works on Touchpad 4G but only WiFi).

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.
  • Random issue with virtual keyboard not showing on Aarch64 devices.

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

Please note that in order to use the latest stable builds 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.

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.

      Unique Display Solution Redefines Work in the New Era

      SEOUL, Oct. 19, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of LG One:Quick, a display solution so revolutionary that its arrival brings with it a whole new category. Developed in response to the new ways people work, LG One: Quick has the potential to change and expand how individuals, coworkers and teams communicate in the new reality of remote working.

After the simple connection process, users can share their PC screen by simply pressing the button on the One:Quick Share USB dongle. Switching the source device is just as easy, with up to four sources able to connect to LG digital signage products simultaneously. And with One:Quick Share, setting adjustments of connected LG signage products such as volume, picture mode and screen brightness can be performed without a remote control.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.
