Ubuntu Touch on Sony Xperia X

  • Thanks @Nikfrager, it seems possible to create a single release for both F5121 and F5122. I'll implement something next week and hope for owners of the F5122 to test it again.

  • Thank you also @fredldotme. That sounds great. I'm very eager.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the port of UBports to Xperia X. I have bought one to replace my FP2/UT, because its hardware is about to die (cannot repair the screen flickering symptom).

    I am unable to install UT on Xperia X F5121. I am now back to TWRP+LineageOS (android 8.1) on the phone, because it is on the only way I found the put the phone in a « known » working state.

    I tried several methods to install, both on Ubuntu 19.10 and Buster 10.2. But each time, ubports-installer hangs because I cannot reboot the device in recovery mode. To do that, I must shut down the device, wait for seconds, and replug it with volume down key to boot into recovery mode. Therefore the link with the installer gets lost. Maybe instructions on screen dialog are inaccurate.

    Is there a way to fully install (from start to end) with a simple shell script, using fastboot and adb tools ? Has someone ever done it ?

    Thanks !

    Wasted a lot of time over this issue with my F5121 which was previously running Sailfish OS using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Mac OSX . In my case had previously saved TAbackup prior to bootloader unlock for Sailfish, so downgraded device back to MM with Androxyde Flashtool, restored DRM (Androxyde Advanced settings), upgraded to stock Oreo, bootloader unlocked on latest firmware, turn on USB debugging, installed twrp-3.2.2-0-suzu.img, reboot into "recovery mode" TWRP wipe then advanced wipe for cache, dalvik cache, data and system, fastboot flash oem SW_binaries_for_Xperia_AOSP_N_MR1_5.7_r1_v08_loire.img and then ran UBports installer 0.14.4-Beta upon Mac OSX to install 16.04/community/fredldotme/devel and got "spinning white circle" this time. Remember to remove any microSD card for any subsequent OTA updates, now on v 10* OS build number 2020-01-01/2.

  • @aspergerguy Thanks for your comments ! For now, the key point is to remove any SD card before any attempt to install or update.

  • @aspergerguy Hi, I'm also having trouble with a device that had SFOS. Can you tell me where you downloaded the stock xperia images from? There seem to be suspicious sites around.

  • @marklynch
    Stock Xperia images downloaded using Xperifirm within Androxyde Flashtool. If you want to find older MM versions you have to look under "Commercial & Journalists". Another source could be:link text

  • Location toggle won't stay enabled; I didn't see any comments about location beyond it working in late 2018... Was there a regression? Excellent port btw!
