I tried that with --dry-run, but it just sits there and does nothing after this output.
$ sudo system-image-cli -vn -p 0 --progress dots

Then it times out with:

Just running system-image-cli --list-channels also just freezes.
@ubuntoutou I have now managed to make the Microsoft Wireless Adapter work on another external display but the ubuntu desktop is compressed vertically. It does not occupy the whole screen so that the desktop is distorted. Furthermore, it is blur...
@c0n57an71n I admit, this is an advantage of the PinePhone. I also miss a dual boot option for Ubuntu Touch. Some apps only work on newer Android releases. I currently carry around three different Samsung Galaxy S5 devices with different Android versions. Each for it's on purpose. One for ANT+, one for writing capability to the SD card, and one for phone calls the latest Android apps. With Ubuntu Touch, there will be one device more. Multi boot could solve the problem.
Interresting. As the app just uses the webcontainer I doubt I can do anything regarding memory consumption. I didn't have the issue neither on OPO nor on Volla. Can you maybe link an example or a channel you follow where this happens.
Okies guys, I'll check out telegram more closely. Ubuntu Touch will be so awesome if we can at least get video chat running. I can think of about 10 people I could easily convince to carry a Nexus 5 or Oneplus One phone if it had video chat.
I have never been a telegram user, but I'll definitely check it out and become familiar with it.
Yes, because of confinement, apps should often copy file into their own space.
For media files, the best is to store them in the dedicated folders then the app with matching right can access them directly without the need to copy them.
You can see how much space each app is taking if you need to clear that space...
If your only problem with UT is the flashlight not working when taking pictures, I'm happy to tell you that this problem is solved in the new Halium 7.1 port of the FP2, by @peat_psuwit. This port isn't pushed officially right now, but can already be installed. See this topic to install the Halium 7.1 port (you will also need to install gstreamer-droid to have the flashlight working).
However, please wait a few days before doing that installation, the core devs actually are upgrading to Qt 5.12 so you should not use apt at the moment. See this topic to know when things will be back to normal.
You told me it is save to use Syncthing locally (without https). From my experience of setting up my home server to act as a backup/ share point between different devices I just know that Syncthing config is not highly protected to listen on another IP.
Ah, I got your meaning. Well, it is safe ot use without https only if the instance running on the device is not accessible from outside of the device. And to this effect the web service is started specifically to only listen on localhost. (in the file: synchting-webd.conf) :
