i guess i‘m still not that relevant here - i’m not yet an UBports or Ubuntu Touch user yet, neither Android or Tizen, but i’m quite curious about the potential UBports can have everywhere (smartphones, tablets, smart-tvs, game consoles, etc.)
@WLBI You will be able to use larger displays later on, if you want. BTW: David Hunt made a PiPhone 3 years ago ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eaiNsFhtI8 ) ... With some optimization, which the ZeroPhone does, this really is a complete handheld computer and phone. Maybe even almost entirely open source soon, because open GPU-drivers are coming along, and there are efforts for an open firmware.
To just add to Neos quote: Please understand that we were completely surprised by Canonical and that the StationDock is far less important now than to have a phone at all... I think if you already donated an amount and you really don´t want it to be used for the core OS development, the server infrastructure or the huge task of keeping the images fresh and correctly built, you could ask for reimbursement.
@Donhammer@Bastos We are already accepting Bitcoin donations. You can currently find addresses for individual devices on https://devices.ubports.com/#/. This was placed this way because of the original purpose of UBports but might change soon. We are still working on a website redesign and will try to make Bitcoin donations a little easier and better documented.
Well it will depend a little bit where the code is hosted. I can imagine that if code stays on Launchpad, also bug reporting will be there, if some parts are shifted to Github, we will also move the bug reporting. Currently I have no global answer for that.
Do we still want to make Mir run on top of Wayland, if Canonical is going to keep working on Mir ?
So the end goal is running directly on top of Wayland ?
What's the option for Meizu Pro 5, if we can't get the Android source ? Is having someone Reverse Engineering the binary blobs an option ? That seems a better long-term solution...
@MrHoliday Sure, we'll keep you posted. If you follow our blog or telegram group, you won't miss it. :)
@Flohack wrote some things the teams are currently working on on telegram, just to give you an idea:
[...] Try to find a way to take over neded infrastructure, servers etc. Then setting up a build chain so that we can actually build new system images. In parallel get OpenStore updated with some needed features and encourage all app builders to move there. In parallel decide which things need to be mirrored from Launchpad projects to Github in order to standardize our repository structure. [...]
I know you guys are eager to get your feet wet with new images, but all we can say for now, is that they will come "soon". I know, this sucks, but have some patience, releases will come!
I run unofficial LineageOS 14+ (formerly Cyanogenmod) on my device, a Samsung Tab S 8.4 LTE.
I have searched many hours over many years through untold XDA forums in regards to Ubuntu Touch but with the latest Unity8 news, there might be more hope for modifying the kernel (like Linuxium does for Baytrail tablets) to run full fledged Ubuntu but alas I have never found it. Android just works too well for the demands involved in doing so.
Technically from what I have scoured, the biggest hurdle is related to what is described as the lack ability to do a mount loop. There are a few poorly recorded YouTube videos but with zero documentation, years old now.
I was extremely happy to see the Note 2 being listed on UBports as a potential device...but I don't think it suffers the same issue as the Tabs.
