v2.55 - The Phone Update

Released 10/16/2021


Content

Hello All,

As some of you would know, a new, custom phone has been in the works for quite some time now. We are happy to say that today is the day that it gets released.

We have been hardcore testing this phone for a few weeks now, however, there are still things that could break when deploying on a larger scale. If you do encounter an issue, do a /bugreport so we can look into fixing it.

As a result of this, all contacts, messages and call history will be deleted. However, we are adding the ability to copy all your old contacts to your clipboard, so you can go through them and re-add them if you want.

We plan to do software updates with this phone, release new apps and redesign apps over time, so stay tuned for further updates in the coming months.

Thanks to all that have been involved in helping to make this phone actually happen. Testing, UI Design, Ideas, it's been great to get peoples input. Hopefully you all like it :)
