    Thread Where do I ask for backlighted buttons notifications (open source)?

    Hi all, I'd really like my backlit buttons to light up if I have unseen notifications. Am I correct that there is no open source solution for that yet? Can we get funding up for that? I'm happy to pay 5€ for that feature. Maybe others want to join so there is more incentive? Where should I post...

    Post [HOWTO] Seamless integration of Android and GNU/Linux Debian (or Ubuntu)

    Hello, I have a question, why did you choose the modified-for-Android-kernel as top kernel, instead of the standard GNU+Linux kernel? Doesn't that mean the system runs slower because Android is for battery powered devices?

    You're right, secure is not the right word. What I mean is that most phones might be used as a remote spying device. There is a way to build them so that this is not possible and that's worth working towards as a goal, imo. On security with Android in general there are probably a lot of good...

    You can probably use software e.g. an app like Tasker.

Maybe there's a code libraby/ template for stuff like...
