"SHIFT happens"

@eNZymOrTHe, I didn’t noticed right away myself that my previous post link here DAS #LOVEPHONE axolotl actually contains stable 20210507-RELEASE-LIGHT-OTA and degoogled compressed file for SHIFT6mq.

Last but not least, I just found out that The #LOVEPHONE products are available for purchase within official New Zealand’s SHIFT Limited Store: “SHIFT phones have been developed by a small family business in Germany without investors. They have a clear goal; to do as much good and as little damage as possible. Similarly, our New Zealand team takes this goal very seriously. All aspects of the manufacturing process are carried out with the highest levels of social and environmental consciousness. Furthermore, we don’t take any personal profits and all net proceeds will be donated to environmental and philanthropic causes.”

Yes, it is all right (important) to remind that you wrote about that eventuality, concerning Librem 5 PCB upgrade, already:

Anyway, it is not to be forgotten that initial, IMHO, Librem 5 PCB modularity idea belongs to:
