This OS sucks!
Here is the list of problems:
P.S: I’m typing in English because Chinese is not usable.
It can’t work normally with USB Drive(on Pi).Actually , it is so slow that I have to wait 5 minutes for it to boot!
It won’t “refresh” your payment , if you reflash the img ,
Your money is gone!!!
Mostly , is can’t provide a stable Chinese input.
After I installed it in USB drive and done the system setup , I rebooted.Then I found a button below my account said “bi xu deng lu” , and after I pressed the button and entered my phone number and password , it said:“Login Failed , Please check your Internet connection and try again”(translated) , but I could do nothing but reboot(or shutdown)!
FydeOS uses hardware finger prints to generate an unique ID for each device. If you change a core component of the device, for example the stroage device, the unique ID would change so your previous subscription would no longer be recognised. This however does not mean your money is gone, you can create a support ticket here to get one of our team members to do a manual transfer of your subscription to your new device ID. Just provide a proof of payment and your new device ID and let us do it for you.
Issues like “USB drive boots slow”, “Android app not starting” and “not able to login” it’s really ymmv, we can’t reproduce them within our testbed and if you browse the entire forum there isn’t much similar report of the same issue. If what you are complaining about is common for all users, guess our support team would be doing 996 and eventually end up in ICU. The fact is we all happily manage our work-life balance so maybe it’s the problem of your USB drive not being good enough, or there were i/o errors here and there, or there were internet connection issues. I am not saying it definitely is, it’s all just likely possibilities, I took an educated guess, no offence.
FydeOS was originally designed for running on PCs, best optimised for Intel’s x86 chips. In order to let FydeOS (with bells and whistles) running on the Raspberry Pi we took much effort and also made many compromises. The Raspberry Pi 4 is a $40 SBC so perhaps you need to adjust your expectations of what you want with an OS.
The Chinese input method within FydeOS as of today isn’t quite the top grade, we know that. Working on it.
Spreading FUD and telling “FydeOS sucks” is not really helpful at all.
