UBports UT installation How-to / Guide d'installation d'UBports UT
Hi there, I'm trying to install on my Nexus 5. Both from Windows using Ubports-installer and trying to use Ubports-installer on my Rasbperry-Pi with Ubuntu Mate does not work.
Trying from my Windows computer and the Ubports-installer, fastboot and adb works from command line, bot Ubports-installer does not recognize the phone.
Trying to install Ubports-installer under Ubuntu Mate, an error message occurs that I'm using the wrong system architecture (armf vw amd64).
Can anyone help me installing Ubuntu Touch in my Nexus 5 using my Windows computer or mx Raspberry Pi with Ubuntu Mate.
Soe time ago I could use ubuntu-device-flash on my Raspberry PI, but this also seems not to work anymore.
Thanks a lot.
@wdnp2 If your hardware is 64 bits compatible, you can use a bootable Ubuntu USB stick: https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu#0
Environment variables under windows...
Found the solution here:
@arubislander Yes it was a 32 bit machine Sorry about that
I get the following on my 64bit machine
william@LaptopL750:~$ sudo apt install ubports-installer_01.21-beta_amd64.deb

Package is on my home directory

@wdnp2 you need to download
ubports-installer_01.21-beta_amd64.debfrom here https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/releases/tag/0.1.21-beta, and then run
sudo dpkg -i ubports-installer_01.21-beta_amd64.debto install it
@advocatux Many thanks for your advice. I have now managed to install
on the Aquaris. I overlooked the fact that it requires a 64bit OS and I needed
to make sure I was in the correct directory.Once the installer was on my laptop
it worked almost automatically.The device was in developer mode and fastboot

@wdnp2 I'm glad to hear that. Enjoy your new UT device!
@advocatux Have been getting familiar with the Aquaris but find the connection to my yahoomail app is a problem. When it does connect I am now able to see the calendar which was not possible with ubuntu. This is very intermittent and on some occasions I am unable to access my mail at all. Further tests suggest that any app which needs internet connection does not open eg google apps. My wifi looks connected and I use this on other machines frequently without any problems. If this is a hardware malfunction I may as well scrap the machine . Update appear to function in the settings app but I cannot confirm that anything has happened. Do you have any ideas on how to resolve the problem?
@wdnp2 For your information -- The Aquaris M10 HD is now working well using a EE Osprey 2 mini router on Ubuntu touch OS. It is looking very good.
I have tried again, at a different location from the EE router, using a Sky router type SR 101. The wifi continues to fail to connect! So far I have been unable to resolve this.
Further info Rebooted sky router gets me connected Working well but still cannot print
