Weekly Update on Librem Production 2015-10-29

We have received the very first batch of Librem 15 rev2 motherboards and component parts today. These will begin shipment next week, and we will continue to deliver on orders of both the Librem 13 and Librem 15 rev2 units throughout November, and into December, our current goal is to get all units shipped before mid December. You will get updates on your individual orders through Crowd Supply.

The order we will be shipping them in is first ordered are first shipped, unless the configuration pushes that to a later batch, such as the 4K screen, or the unique language key caps.

All units will ship with PureOS 2.0, unless you specify your order number, and request “NO OS”, then we will not load an operating system.

The Intel ME progress report, we have a number of avenues we are pursuing with regard to the Intel ME, what we can disclose are the approaches we are making progress on:

1) Fusing the CPU based on Intel documentation to run an unsigned ME (continuing testing).
2) Getting a zero byte then signed Intel ME (short-term plan).
3) Getting the source reviewed/released (long-term plan).
4) Any alternative Intel can provide to operating without the Intel ME.

PureOS 2.0 is nearing a release candidate, probably another week.

We will be moving this “weekly production posting” to semi-regular posts when events occur.

Thank you!
