@farkasdvd yes, as your device is running Android now, you have to follow https://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/userguide/install.html#install-on-legacy-android-devices before installing UBports

One comment for those who are doing the same thing: don't forget to enable developer mode once you have installed the legacy Ubuntu Touch. Otherwise UBports installer won't detect your device.
