Just some days after Purism released its first Librem 5 walk-through video, with the final device running its "GNOME" Phosh shell with impressive smoothness, postmarketOS developer Martijn Braam uploaded a video of himself assemblying by hand the first (finished) PinePhone prototype from a bag of parts.

The show of impressive hand soldering and assembly skills in the video leads us, after an extremely in-depth view of this Linux smartphone and its components, to its (likely) very first boot: 40 to 50 seconds to the Plasma Mobile mobile Linux shell, running on top of postmarketOS.
