My FP4 arrived today.
I’ve installed the latest Mobian, then the Mobian from one month ago, then the oldest available Mobian (Feb this year).
None of them work.
The first two do not work in any way shape or form; the phone enters a reboot cycle, and there’s no sign of anything other than the unlocked bootloader warning, then ten seconds or so of nothing, then back to the unlocked bootloader warning.
The oldest available version, from Feb this year, does better; the phone gives a vibrate on reboot, and then does not enter into a reboot cycle, and the screen is active but blank (dark rather than white - black screen with backlight, I’d say).
If I plug my USB cable in, the laptop starts taking network connectivity from the phone.
However, that’s it. No UI, nothing. I waited about three hours like this, tried the volume keys (apparently they can be used to show the console, which should show progress on the file system resize, which happens on first boot), but nothing - blank screen.
It looks like Mobian, as of late July 2023, is not working on FP4.
