Mixxx SPIN mapping update

October 30th, 2020

Released a small update today for the SPIN mapping. The VU meters weren’t really making use of the red LED, so I fixed it. Try cranking the GAIN and see what happens when they clip. It’s nice.

Share and enjoy!

Lineage OS ROM builds for Sargo (Pixel 3a)

July 30th, 2020

I gave up trying to find a simple no-google build of LineageOS for the Pixel 3a (not the XL). And instead built it myself using https://github.com/SolidHal/Build-lineageos-sargo. This is my daily-driver ROM. I use it without GAPPS.

I’m making my builds available as torrents as I build them. You can build it yourself if you like. You’ll need lots of ram, a swapfile, and a few hours to wait.

Share and enjoy.

Build parameters:

  • Signed, so you can flash updates without wiping
  • SIGNATURE_SPOOFING=restricted – I don’t use microG but this should allow limited functionality
  • UNIFIEDNLP=true Use your favorite location provider. I recommend Deja Vu
  • Includes F-Droid Privileged Extension
  • Includes GmsCore

If you’re not comfortable running a custom ROM on your phone, I strongly advise that you not do that. :)


My experience has been that the sideload of LineageOS always installs to slot_b. Or maybe it renames the slots after a successful install. The slot system is still weird.

CST Trackball mod parts on order

May 20th, 2020

[update] Parts are in. A few more mod kits are available to buy now hooray!

Well, I built a few more trackball ball-bearing mod kits, and they sold out in two days. Holy crap! Parts are on order, and I made a CST Mod Kit Page so people can find them while parts are on order, which apparently will be a regular thing if this continues.

They’re a royal pita to make, but I’ve always felt that this trackball deserves better than what came in the box!
