  • RE: Will there be any official ports to Chinese devices?

    @ddabrahim While I can understand the reasoning the problem with cheap devices is that we have 90% no way of re-compiling the parts we need to make the hardware work. We need a few basic bits to be available in source code, and then the whole vendor tree as closed source.

    If you find a cheap Chinese phone with a good LineageOS port (official) then we might try. Everything what is unofficially ported to LineageOS may break or cost us hundreds of hours. This is not really efficient.

    There is a reason why they are cheap. They are not meant to be modded.

  • RE: OnePlus One & Anbox

    So i have good news here! So after last thing got pushed for OTA4, i got more time to work on this, and I got some progress! after merging upstream and some more hacking I have got it working on qcom devices! It will still take time to be something usable for daily use, but i will push some test images this week. After OTA4 is out we will put more work into making anbox smooth and ready for daily driving.

  • RE: Proposal: The Edge channel

    I sustain the edge channel @alan_g for a variety of reasons:

    • We are a small team, we cannot guarantee that things being pushed will not break the entire image. We lack auto and manual testing a lot, we cannot work with silos etc.
    • For some scenarios its very cumbersome to having install various packages from various branches at the same time to the phone
    • devel has become actually quite a "stable devel" and we want to keep it as described for the changes where we are sure that they will not break the whole image. People should not expect having to reflash their phones after a devel channel update going wrong.
    • This channel will not be on the phone for people to "just switch" to it.
    • I do not see much issues with yet another channel coming for devs, the low-level devs will use it, but middleware/Ui etc can stay on devel probably.

  • RE: Proposal: The Edge channel

    The idea of subchannel is something we got already, but using deb packages instead of full rootfs (we call them "branches"). We also got a tool to install/uninstall these branches. (http://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/about/process/ppa.html)

  • RE: Proposal: The Edge channel

    @alan_g The biggest major change is that this channel will be decouple from the ota release cycle and will only be cherry picked into devel (and then follow the release cycle) this is done due to our different types of devices where our older devices does not support newer libhybris just yet, and that way we can pull new libhybris and other major changes (unity8, mir, sensorfw, droidmedia, anbox and etc we want to experiment with) into this edge channel and keep it there to freely develop on without interfering with the normal OTA release cycle that happens at devel->rc->stable. Then the question is, why a channel/rootfs. This is because we want to support halium devices with this channel/rootfs and provide them with an option to download a rootfs that supports halium out of the box without needing to update libhybris etc to get it to boot with our rootfs, and for the channel this allows us to provide community channels using newer libhybris.

    So keyword here is libhybris, we simply cannot bring libhybris in to devel->rc->stable cycle at this point, that would break some of the older devices.

  • RE: The first use of the Dialing program,the upper left corner is always shown in the initialization,why?

    You have to see, no Apps are running in the background. So the initial start needs to make a full conversation with ofonod and RILd in order to get things going. Interestingly it happens also after hangup. But nothing will change here soon, this is a delicate piece of the phone code where no one wants to break things. So all changes must be made with great care.

  • RE: Total Newbie Here. Is this the Google / IOS escape hatch?

    Yes this is the rabbit hole you are looking for.

    Take the blue pill or the red one?

  • RE: OnePlus One & Anbox

    The issue is that on qcom devices it has some EGL issues, by color buffer issues and/or incorrect frame buffer sizes.
