    WTB: Open Pandora [EU/UK]

    Hi, Now Pyra's are being shipped maybe someone is interested in selling their unused Pandora. Not looking at other sites, rather buy one from someone from this community. I don't think shipping outside EU/UK is worth it, from the Netherlands myself - any model is fine. Condition doesn't have...

    Ethereum lost password

    Hi all, In august 2016 I bought a few ethers just for fun and stored them on my PC. Didn't worry about them too much but since then they have increased in price quite a bit and I recently thought about checking it again. Unfortunately I've lost my password. I think it is a combination of a...

    usb wifi dongle improve connection stability

    Hi Because of bad onboard wifi on my Pandora I have bought a couple of usb wifi dongles. They all work a lot better than the onboard chip, but still I am having connection issues.

    Hope someone can help me with this problem. I have two broken Eee Note EA800s and want to repair one of them.

    Thread can be closed - not looking anymore

    Hi, ED has one of my Pandora's with a motherboard that is quite difficult to repair. It would simplify matters if I could buy a broken Pandora and ship that to ED to swap the motherboards. So broken cases, broken keyboard, battery issues, purple LCD screen are no problem. I also don't need...

    sleep tracking with open pandora

    Does anyone has experience with using the Pandora for sleep tracking? There are tons of tracking apps on phones for this purpose (I think they use the sound of breathing to determine quality and quantity of sleep), but I would prefer using my Linux laptop / Pandora with OS software. Have...

    creating a forum

    I like to create a forum / start a community that might have commercial potential (could also fail horribly..). I don't mind spending some cash on this idea but certainly not a lot.  The forum (software) should be:  - fast / lean - scalable - easy to add ads - easy to find for search...

    How to map USB gamepad for use in MiniMenu and programs?

    My generic USB gamepad is recognized by my Pandora and works in picodrive. Unfortunately it doesn't work out of the box exactly as needed. I basically want the main keys to do the same as the action/direction keys of the pandora. I would like this key mapping to be made in such a way that the...

    2nd life Pandora

    Most members will probably sell their Pandora once the Pyra is launched but I am sure lots of members will keep it as a spare handheld or start using it differently. I am curious what kind of projects or future use might be possible with a Pandora.  I own 3 cc Pandora's and I only need 2 so I...
