If you can't find a porting thread about this device on the forum, or a device page in ubports device list, then for now, no UT for this device yet.
Try to search on XDA, there are sometime ported devices that pops there before reaching here.
@mrt10001 Will have a think. Device specific issues or processes might also be best in the individual device section on https://devices.ubuntu-touch.io or when using the installer perhaps? If you see any posts you think are suitable let us know the only other thing i have found is that most of the information is never in one thread but spread accross many but let see.
I looked into these, it can be done, but there are issues with power management, wifi and touchscreen. I honestly don't know why companies brick their devices apart from forcing you to buy new and putting the defunct one into landfill.
No, I cannot do such things. And please read this. People from the community are the people who usually make ports (a port is a specific version of Ubuntu Touch for a device); the person making the port needs to own the device. So if you want someone to make a port, they either need to have one or you need to give them one. Or you could learn how to do it yourself. It will probably take several months.
Basically: please do not ask people to make a port for your device. It's a lot to ask.
@mario-ch Thanks a lot, im not programmer, im more like a kind of self dev, love your work, I dont know how but if need I would love to help, just dont know were to start, so if need anything I will be able at list to try, sorry my english is not in the best days, need to improve it more. thanks
@pappetsu Well, I wish you the best of luck, but the chances are not high.
If people want to deGoogle, they generally buy a suitable device, which is much more likely to be easily deGoogled. In other words, they do the research before getting the phone.
I think the CAT S42 H+ deserves a port of Ubuntu Touch because this smartphone is very robust, anti shock, etc.
Those are good reasons to want it, but not all devices are equally suitable for porting. For example, it needs to be possible to unlock the bootloader.
So people who are looking to port a new device will always look at feasibility first and foremost, and the other properties of the phone come after that.
It's about the first VP, not the X right ?
Maybe you'll have more chances searching for a gigaset GS290 screen, as it's the same hardware, but way more spreaded than the VollaPhone.
Edit : after searching the net a bit, it seems difficult to find spare screen even for GS290...
Maybe you'll have more chance with screen "part number" that you should find on it after tearing it down.
I found a how to tear it down video : https://youtu.be/62ur_58mLK4
Wish you luck.
Edit 2 :
I broke my canonical Ubuntu Touch MX4 screen some time ago, first i found an unofficial replacement screen (20€), wich had a very poor touch feeling, plus bad light uniformity, so i searched for a used MX4 with original screen, and found one (non UT compatible unfortunately) for about 50€, and teared it down to get its screen for my MX4, i still have it.
So if you find a cheap used GS290, it can be another solution.
