I think I remember Chen saying before that he doesn't like gluing things and prefers screws.

Btw., Chen, what's the ETA for the qwertyphone as for now? The Moto Z was to be released in November IIRC, we have December, and everything's silent.

They will have a lot of work with the Youyota Tablet. Read somewhere that it should be shipped this month, when everything works and is delivered. That will have priority number 1 and only then the new smartphone.

That is difficult to say, as Chen mentioned a few time that the Youyota project isn't his, he is "only" giving a hand.
Not sure how much work and time that would take him...

I'm not a backer, but I believe the keyboard still has not been released. I saw a new keyboard revision only a couple of weeks ago.

I got contacted by another forumer with a broken screen but otherwise working phone. I'll be first investigating that...

I might managed to find a J1 with a broken screen to salvage the motherboard.
But maybe Koiruus' screen is still in working shape to repair yours ?

Indeed. There was an update a few days ago on the IGG: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/k...z#/updates/all

Some relevant extracts (there is a lot of info in it, but mainly out of subject for this thread):
- Final approval by Moto expected on 2nd half of December, the date will be based on all the results above.
- We have spent all the funds raised here on R&D, toolings, factory, tests and certifications. (The actual cost is nearly doubled) We will need to seek for some external financial help on producing those units, it may take extra days to get funds ready. But please rest assured that we do have a plan B and will get this sorted out, itís only few days that matters.
- The latest (non-optimistic) estimation will be:
* The rest of Non-Battery version in Mid-Jan 2018.
* Standard Battery version will start shipping around 20th Jan
- as the development has been finished, no major showstopper should occur

For all details, please read the announcement...

bit late to the party but I'd say go with qualcomm with the best android support we can get and then we can port sfos and whatever else we want.
