knows a source of at least 200 devices in pretty much mint condition ;-D

DocScrutinizer51: can you share that source?

Haha, that makes sense that your stockpile is no longer called for since the project is done :'(
I've been managing with a GTA04 for a few years hoping the Nikolaus would overcome the hurdles on the GTA05 or my deposit on Neo900 would pay off. But the GTA04 is not in very good shape.
I confess that I put money down on the Purism phone too. It's far from perfect but all the free-er options have stalled.
any updates on the pyraphone or some such?
Nikolaus has been working on iio-bridge in the kernel to handle multiple accelerometers as input devices, but the maintainer of that subsystem doesn't seem to like the approach.
Thats all I know from lurking on the list.

have ab eye on cosmo communicator, not exactly "free" but... genuine support for multiboot, which means a bit at least
a complete opposite the the purism approach as I understand it, which seems to be "our hardware our OS and we base our OS on something that once been debian" or somesuch
I can't wait for some of these device come out then tested and have the 2nd iteration put out. Which is kinda of the case for cosmo, but for them maybe the 3 or 4th vers.

sicelo: Great to hear that USB problem is fix-able by somebody without soldering experience?
DocScrutinizer05 : Small soldering iron, or better hot-air reflow... Will see what is available at makerspace. Watched the video a little, now I know that solder is not to be put at the tip of the iron - no idea how to clean tip of the iron though. I am guessing that soldering micro-USB port is quite different from soldering a through-hole chip? Reading up...
yes, soldering the USB pins is quite difficult particularly to simply get by. For the reinforcement (soldering down the sheath to PCB) you need a rather large (80W+) soldering iron since the PCB has large copper planes that dissipate all heat
for the pins hot air reflow with pre-wttwed/plated pads and pins and a lot of excellent flux, or even better using solder paste, is the better option for sure
