Development testers for Anbox



  • @moid and @ricardo65
    All info should be here in this thread and https://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/userguide/dailyuse/anbox.html

    What exactly is not working for you? What did you try already? What's your general setup?

    I have tried to install following the instructions that you have put in the link and I get that the ubports repositories are temporarily blocked and I can't install it.

    corfirmado, in RC works perfectly the wifi with anbox installed.



  • Not sure if it was you, but here is a fresh issue about the WiFi problem: https://github.com/ubports/anbox/issues/36

    I don't have a Nexus 5, so unfortunately no idea 😞

    What I know, in devel channel the so-called "edge merge" has happened (https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3293/what-s-this-edge-merge-anyway) and AFAIK it's not on RC yet. Not sure if that is related but it's an abvious difference between the two channels.



  • @Ingo What command should I use to uninstall anbox? thank you



  • Here is a topic about that question: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/2963/uninstall-anbox

    If you don't mind some remaining files laying around in /home/phablet you can just re-install UT without wipe. Kernel and rootfs modifications will be gone. The android rootfs plus apps will still be there, though. Not sure if anyone ever wrote instructions how to get rid of all anbox related things.



  • Hey all. I'm trying to install Anbox on my PRO 5 and am running into a problem with anbox-tool install. I'd welcome any illumination, perhaps information on compatible versions of UBports and Anbox for the PRO 5.

    I've got UBports 16.04 (OTA-11, stable) and anbox-boot-turbo-test.img flashed (as described here). When I attempt to install Anbox with anbox-tool install, I am presented with a Python error that concludes with the following:

    json.decoder.JSONDecodeError: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)
    

    Does anyone happen to have any ideas on what is going wrong and how I might get the latest possible Anbox running on the device?

    I attempted to install anbox-ubuntu-touch on UBports 16.04 (20200107, devel) but it did not appear to be available.



  • @BlandCorporation Hi, as far as I know, on devel channel you don't need to flash the kernel image anymore because already embedded in the OS image. This step, according to my experience, led to break something (for instance the wifi connection). I didn't try myself yet and I don't know if it will resolve your issue either but I think that the best would be to restart from scratch in the devel channel and skip the part related to flashing the kernel image.



  • @matteo Magic, thanks for that suggestion. Anbox was installable using the development channel without the need to flash a kernel for it separately, as you guessed. Regarding your Wi-Fi experience, I am not experiencing any Wi-Fi problems for native applications running while Anbox is running or for Anbox applications. For you and any others reading, the following UBports and Anbox versions were those I observed as being compatible:

    System Version
    UBports OS build number 2020-01-08
    UBports Image part 20200108-27502
    Ubuntu build description Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - armhf (20200108)
    Device image part 20170608-43243
    Device build description turbo-user 5.1 LMY47D 15 test-keys
    Anbox pool/xenial/main/a/anbox/anbox-ubuntu-touch_8+0~20180916133012.39~1.gbpe34b59.deb
