The information provided on AG4OJ.COM (http://ag4oj.com/), hereafter called "Website," by ("I," "Me" or "My") is for general informational purposes only. All information on this Website is provided in good faith, however I make no representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied, regarding the accuracy, adequacy, validity, reliability, availability or completeness of any information on this Website.
Under no circumstance shall I have any liability to You for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of this Website or reliance on any information provided on this Website. Your use of this Website and your reliance on any information on this Website is solely at your own risk.
If your not into learning things and figuring thing out on your own when they go wrong, then this Website is NOT for you. The Raspberry Pi OS, Pi-Star, the Display Driver, MMDVMHost, MMDVM Modem Firmware, and all other related software shown on this Website are developing environments that are out of the control of those who help take care of this Website.
Let it be known that historical documentation has been kept on these projects contained on this website. These projects started in June 2019. All back version are kept for legal use only. This is done due to provide a history of code progression in the Nextion Displays, and, since January 2020, the Display Driver. It is documentation like this that has eased my legal burden in some instances.
Changes may happen in these developing environments that are not immediately reflected in this Website.
USE OF THIS WEBSITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND LEGAL LIABILITY
This includes all files, images, and documentation located within these webpages. Make sure you have FULLY studied the information presented. This so WHEN something goes wrong, not IF, that YOU are ready to handle your situation on your own. I can't be avaliable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for this. All information on this website is carefully laid out for YOU to learn from.
DO NOT EVER download any of My files from another website. A Ham did this on 04/29/20, they learned a valuable lesson, their Nextion Display was temporally bricked. I got that one Nextion Display back working again, yet, don't take any chances. Get them from HERE!
There will never be a charge for what I provide here or will it be code for a commercially made hotspots only. SO PLEASE, get ALL of My files directly from this site, ONLY. Use the checksums files that I provide. If any file doesn't pass a checksum test after downloading it, THEN DON'T USE IT!
The User Databases Offered On This Website
It has been brought to My attention that user databases like what is offered on this Website must be handled privately. As YOUR Nextion Display can show other user information, it's in YOUR best interests that it is NOT done so in a PUBLIC WAY. Certain international LEGAL authorities that I have deferred to, have so stated, it's in everyone's best interests NOT to display other user's information in ANY PUBLIC WAY.
This means NO public images, pictures, videos, etc. of the Nextion Display displaying user information.
Use of the user databases on this website are at YOUR own risk. YOU are hereby warned that there are certain countries that offer legal remedies to citizens when they feel that their privacy has been violated. NOW, We know this is a high bar to prove, YET, legal costs to defend YOURSELF in such a situation may not be something easily dismissed with empty pockets.
Private Amateur Radio Use Of These Databases Are Deemed Harmless
YOU HAVE BEEN SO LEGALLY WARNED
THE RISKS AND LEGAL LIABILITIES OF USE HERE ARE SOLELY YOUR OWN
The Legalities Of Free Software
I’ve done My best to compile these files, the ones presented on this Website, by the latest Nextion GUI version. Even so, the risk of using these files falls solely on those who download them and install them. There could be errors in the code, omissions, may not work completely, and/or work at all. Like I have said, I’ve done the best I can.
Since I’re not in control of the downloading and installing of the correct file to the correct display, YOU, the end user accepts ALL responsibility for anything that could just happen to go wrong when programming/reprogramming YOUR Nextion Display. Though downloading and installing is usually flawless, unexpected things can still happen.
Also, I can’t control if the associated driver, NDDC or EDDC, is installed properly. Even though there are a set of installation instructions, as installation guides provided here on this Website, certain settings need to be setup properly before they are installed. Then afterwards, if certain settings are changed within Pi-Star / MMDVMHost, this could cause the Nextion Display to completely or partially stop working.
I share My code files here with everyone “COPYRIGHT FREE USE ONLY”. This code has My permission to be installed on ANY Amateur Radio MMDVM Hotspot (Single/Simplex) / Repeater (Dual/Duplex) Nextion Display. I Don’t give permission for any form of the code to be disassembled, reverse-engineered, and/or sources copied, sources partially copied into other projects without My expressed written permission.
This means that they may be installed on a single device or commercially sold in bulk devices without any further direct permissions from Me. AND, this means that the warranty of any sold such devices using these code files from this Website then belongs solely between the seller and buyer. I'm making no money off the complete contents provided on this Website or the sale of any Hotspots / Repeaters. I can't and WILL NOT be involved in ANY WARRANTY ISSUES of said sold devices.
Warranty, Fitness of Provided Code
Ok, there is NONE, Sorry. You're mostly on your own to study the presented materials and figure things out. I provide an Email address below to ask questions and to help resolve any problems. I will try My best to get you a resolution quickly. As I'm not selling anything here, this Website is informative only. This Website is to be used as an aid to increase Your knowledge of how things work in and around the Pi-Star environment.
