@verevka OH WOW! I CAN'T BELIEVE MY EYES! IS THAT REALLY UBUNTU TOUCH FOR SAGIT?! IS IT?!
Man thanks for your effort. Thank you so much! I've been waiting my whole life to be able to use ubuntu touch personally. since day zero...
I flashed it. It still needs development and bug hunting. It isn't ready for being a daily driver yet.
Have you left it be? Are you still working on it?
@quin-teknolife to the best of my knowledge, the note 5 has no GUI, but most everything else seems to be working from my understanding. the exynos SoC is expecting selinux and essentially refuses to boot without it, and I believe that is causing some underlying issues
you unlock device as usual (enable developer mode, authorize your PC for USB debugging, boot into bootloader do fastboot flashing unlock)
Then, do not try to install TWRP permanently. You will have to boot it everytime with fastboot boot twrp-xy.img
You can select the slot to flash to also with the fastboot command. What I did was:
Boot TWRP in slot a
Install LineageOS 16.0 (to get the vendor partition), TWRP will install it to slot b!
Flash halium-boot.img to slot b
Install rest of system with halium-install. You also need to specify flag -s to install it with "system-as-root" mode
System is booting now, but recovery cannot be installed ATM with Halium. We are doing work now to integrate our recovery properly, at least then you will be able to use it.
@dytract well give it a try, but modding the image is already halfway to do a real port 🙂 you will need the Android build tree and such, so if there is a Lineage 14.1 or 16.0 for your device, I would still suggest you start a port.
