Yesterday I emailed TTGO/ Lily to see if in principle they could install the disaster radio boards they ship. After a bit of linguistic miscommunication they went ahead and did it.
So it's now possible to order the boards pre-flashed here:
I didn't intend to do this without asking the list, so apologies if I've overstepped.
If you really don't want to do this, then I can ask them to remove the listing. I realise that fully open hardware is needed in the medium term.
They are willing to donate a $1 for every board sold: https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/H856d5793d514415187b910e3fd4a3139w.jpg
Assuming you're happy to leave the listing up, where should we send this trickle of donations? Do you have a bank?
This does leave the task for the users to configure their SD card, is that as easy as formatting to ext2 and copying index.html to it? https://github.com/sudomesh/disaster-radio/tree/master/web/static or is it more involved than that?
Let me know what you want to do about the listing, and if it stays up, where to send the money.
