  • RE: Cellular Meter?

    There was a long discussion about if we show 4G or L - basically saying, that term is not standardized, and was used and abused by vendors, by Google and Apple, in a very confusing way. LTE is used by Apple mostly, while 4G is more used by Android to describe the same thing.

    Technically speaking, LTE is not even 4G. Its more like 3.9G ๐Ÿ™‚ since it does not reach the required speed of 1GBit/s in the 4G spectrum. There is a standard called LTE+ or LTE Advanced that would be needed for that.

    The speed indicator should therefore show: 2G - G - E - 3G - H- L - 4G in ascending order. But there is one problem: Our interface to the modem does not have an option to detect if we have LTE or LTE-+ speed negotiated. So, best option is to show "L" and you can say thats "at least LTE, but maybe LTE+" ๐Ÿ™‚

  • RE: [Porting] Call for Testers

    Very good, already a bunch of test users. I am preparing a few things to make your life easier, in the meantime, if you have any data on the phone that needs to be backed up, do it (externally). Due to the nature of Androidยดs data encryption we need to format the data partition, and that means loosing all data there ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • RE: how long will FP3+ / Ported

    @libremax Oh okay... probably risky to think it has the same device image as the FP3.... So could need a port from scratch. Android is lame...

  • RE: how long will FP3+ / Ported

    @007fred50 What is a Fairphone 3+, I only know a Fairphone 3 ๐Ÿ™‚

    And, it is not predictable when a port reaches 100%, it might be days, weeks or months. When its ready, its ready ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • RE: Nexus 6p Flashing Issue

    @sjackson The envelope is empty, its not a pending notification ๐Ÿ™‚ - it will turn green if you got anything. Send yourself an SMS to test...

    As for LED: It is

    • white solid for charing
    • green solid for 100% charged
    • green blinking for a notification pending
    • orange blinking for critical battery level

    @sjackson You need to format data, to remove encryption probably. Just guessing.

  • RE: Wish list for other devices in the device subfolders

    @peter-gamma Its different for XDA: Everybody knows that on XDa the community is a fair mix of official and unofficial stuff, with probably more "home-brew" stuff so people wont blame XDA for a non-working ROM right?

    XDA community is supporting a vast amount of different Android ROMS, and its up to you what you choose. You are responsible all by yourself.

    However, on Ubuntu Touch its a bit different: The community expects basically that whaever we publish is working very well, as our old devices have a good record of being fully usable as daily drivers, at least from the porting point of view. Putting a device into a) devices page, b) installer, c) forum gives it a look of being an officially supported device, and so we want to ensure minimal functionality at last, to not scare away people with semi-finished ports that will never get complete.

    So for a porter the motivation should be: If you try hard to get your device at least working to 90% or so, you can get into the installer. We list you on the devices page with "experimental, wip, community device" mark if you are not quite there.

    But for the forum? Well its a bit difficult, I agree. We could add all devices "just so", without putting any rules. But I really think that would create a ton of subforums with no traffic, until a device gets more popular, and so its really not worth.

    XDA is used by thousands of people daily, we might have a few hundreds. So also from traffic perspecitve I dont think that is really needed.
