I’m curious what modifications y’all have done to your vanilla Reform to make it more suitable for daily-driver use. Obviously, “daily-driver” will look different for everyone, but I’m referring to how you have brought your Reform more inline with being a replacement for the laptops that we are all accustomed to using. Have you created any new display screens for the OLED? Have you upgraded any hardware? How have you tweaked the base Reform Debian, have you added any keyboard shortcuts? For example, so far I have done the following:
- Transferred bootloader to eMMC and OS to NVMe, to remove dependence on SD card (via this thread Operating System on NVMe (without SD Card) - #18 by 8088mph)
- Updated keyboard and system controller firmware, to prolong battery life in off state (via this thread Battery monitoring while "off" - #7 by ghalfacree)
- Ordered Laird wifi antenna, for better wireless performance (via wifi thread)
- Installed neofetch (/s)
Personally, I’m wildly impressed by this device. This thread isn’t meant to highlight the Reform’s shortcomings; rather, it is to celebrate the openness/hack-ability of this machine, as well as the freedom that we have over our own hardware+software. Also, a consolidated list of common upgrades may encourage more people to take the plunge with this computer.
