You can also try our temporary solution of using Linphone and a sip provider ( we recommend Jmp.chat). It provides VoLTE equivalency and will keep your phone functional after July 1. With the Jmp.chat webapp, you'll even get MMS (with limited notifications). See our North American Issues Telegram group, and i'll be writing something up about it hopefully this week.
We have some progress regarding VoLTE, but nothing that will be usable by July 1.
@lduboeuf My first though is Notification. When implemented this would be hard coded into the OS, is that right. So in effect is all ready on and working. The emergency messages are a form of notification so keeping that part easy to find and use makes Notification seem the right place for users to naturally start and look.
This is only my initial thought lets see how it pans out.
Yes UT is a "full" GNU/Linux on the OS part, but a secure mobile oriented one, so you can't install snap ou deb packages in its default state.
On android phones, it runs on some android parts, most of them are vendor drivers, and it needs to use vendor Linux custom kernel to make phone work properly, but nothing from what you do on UT is shared with google (unless you want to, i.e. by using a google account) or any other entity.
Default installed apps have nothing to do with google, contact, messaging, phoning apps, and all the others are from ubports and opensourced and of course ubports doesn't collect your personnal data.
On openstore (wich only require account if you want to review apps) it's the same, only specific apps that has to do with google or youtube account can share some data with google.
Apps on UT are strictly confined, except core apps and some other, reviewed by ubports team.
Search "halium" and HAL (hardware abstraction layer) to better understand how UT works on android native phones.
The Upower Tool from the Test Thread works 100 Prozent oh the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro. Thank You Nice Tool. Update:
Is this indicator APP also available somewhere as an executable version? I've always had bad luck installing them in the terminal. Actually a nice APP but the unsightly effect the device becomes unstable.
@domubpkm Good idea. Stoping the bluetooth service from the terminal turns off the radio and saves my battery.
Turning the service backon from the terminal followed by power off the phone and turn back on again gets bluetooth working to a BT speaker again..... but still unable to turn BT off either from the pull down menu from the indicators or from the settings page.
Emergency Broadcast messages support has not been integrated into UT as of yet. Indeed, I know of no other non-Android Linux OSes or shells that have them yet either.
However, ofono does have some API for them, so it should be possible to do the work for them in UT. It just needs someone to spend the time to do all the work. I don't know if ModemManager has any support for them at all though, so implementing them for other shells may be even more work.
