    Using the Pandora to rescue a duff SD card.

True for win7, ubuntu 11.something and CentOS6. The Pandora is the only system that seems to see something inserted.  It too...

    PokerTH - is a port possible?

    Before I make an official port request I'll probably make a fool of myself by exposing my ignorance for these things. N900 is a similar spec to the Pandora, arm CPU and a 800x480 screen. A branch for the smaller screen size is mentioned on pokerth's web site. Now I'm complete ignorant about...

    power supply wrecked by my wife's over vigerous vacuuming.

    I am now the proud owner of a power cable that has been separated from the plug at the solder points. I've opened the plug and there is a circuit board and I wonder at which points I need to resolder the +/- cables too. There is USB section with large holes/solder points either side with a...

    LCD comes on when coming out of low power mode

    I'm using the Pandora as an MP3 player (deadbeef) and I find the most effective was to pause it, if I need to take a call, is to switch the Pandora to low power mode. The case is normally closed and remains closed but I have noticed that when power is restored the LCD comes one. Opening and...

    Pandora pnd_mount script

    I´ve only just got my Pandora and at the week-end I was looking at the /usr/pandora/scripts scripts and was thus introduced to zenity. I was also reading many of the mali/gruso tricks, one of which was the mounting up of PND. I wrote this script to put a gui front-end to the process. It´s a...

    Smaller, Cheaper, Faster than the Pandora

    Raspberrypi for only £15. No doubt there'll be a queue and a Two MonthTM wait, and I also doubt if they've factored in working with the Chinese yet. :P

    Happy Birthday! I've been waiting two years.

    Hello all, Don't worry OPT this is not a gripe topic. :P I was wondering who will end up waiting the longest for their Pandora. Rules are: From date you placed your first*1 order to the date you held your first*2 Pandora. Someone at the end of day one would have had to wait some 9...

    There are a few little things to sort out before the end of Batch1. I'm trying to remember how many cases Craig has now and how many are still in China. I know there are enough make to start into Batch2, so the cases, as such, are no issue but their transport might yet be. If I may request...

    New words for the Oxford dictionary

    Walking back from town on Saturday I was trying to explain to my wife the meaning of a new, Pandora related, word I'd invented. Pandadox - Pandora related paradox. Like the burning desire to post to the forum from a Pandora about the delays in getting your Pandora. At which my wife coined...

    What should you have done instead of Pandoring

    Welcome all to my first topic on this shiny new forum. So what have you guys been neglecting to do whilst playing(using) your Pandora, or posting too much on the forums? I should have been painting the outside of my house or getting on with a few python/pygame projects. The painting has...

    What Size Is The Pandora Screen.

    I know it is 4.3" but what is the exact width/height? Are the pixels square and preserve the 5 to 3 aspect ratio? I'm trying to work out what is the smallest font that remains finger selectable.
