@Manchee1017 Yeah basically the idea is to verify the list of things I posted. So I think feature x is working, but I need other people to confirm, and also to find maybe things I forgot.
I do not have an installable image yet, will try to fix that today eve.
I am happy to do anything to help support this phone which is the most common phone to introduce new users to UBports as it's so easily available and easy to repair.
I should be able to test out the new image, I have a spare Nexus 5 laying around to play with.
It is already at a dead end when it comes to Android. If it would be able to run amd64 apps compiled for a somewhat theoretical x86 desktop version of ubuntu touch, then it would be probably fine for a few more years. But if it is really stuck in 32bit like on Android, then I think a UT port would not help.
With standalone I don't mean the zipped version. When you do "make" in the cloned folder a script gets creeated that is called halium-install-standalone.sh and that doesn't work.
With systemwide I meant that you seem to have your halium install script in your $PATH since you don't have a ./ in front of your "halium-install" command (if you have, your instructions are wrong).
I used the git clone files and they do not work on my setup (see the four last posts).
Definitely too old. We are struggling to support Kernel 3.4 and Android 5.1 stick devices. Nexus 4 is I think the only exception where an even older device was made usable, but it has at least kernel 3.4 - You wont get much help with anything older than that.
Maybe it would be a good idea to post it on twitter (and maybe xda) as well?
How different is a port from UT to PlasmaMobile? I imagine they have their own workload and priorities but maybe they know someone who is interessted to develop it further.
