Help testing new legacy image
@darkeye is the ES1980 DAC enabled so that the headphone volume now is OK?
And how about Bluetooth, is it still interrupting or is it now working?
Would be super if you could also post some screenshot on the new scopes!
@zsoltmd me to... Running cm 14.1 now and would like to have Bluetooth, HiFi headphone and g apps possibility before switching back...
My BQ E5 just upgraded to the legacy image revision 2. Everything looks fine. The only thing I noticed is that after rebooting the Telegram application had been removed, I reinstalled it and everything looks fine.
Bonjour Dermot mckay,
Quel procédure avez vous faite pour la M10. Je suis actuellement sur M10 UT et jaimerai essayé celle UBports.
Hello Dermot mckay,
What procedure did you do for the M10? I am currently on M10 UT and I will have tried the UBports.
@Locamama Hey there, sorry, my french is very bad, so i can only answer you in english. There are instructions here: https://wiki.ubports.com/wiki/How-to-flash-existing-ubuntu-touch-devices-with-Ubports-images
I just tested Ubports image for Pro 5, revision=2, works great apart from the Bluetooth bug. Will test the mobile network drops if appears as well.
I have to say I'm impressed how you managed to ubuntu-device-flash to work as previously with Ubuntu server I couldn't flash it as it always refused to flash either in bootloader or recovery mode. Thank you.
Hope you find the fix for the bluetooth and other bugs.
Will test it and if any new bugs found, I'll report on them...
There seems to be a problem with phone overheating while browsing the net on mobile connection(4g, H) and also on wifi. The same problem was reported on original Ubuntu image. Nothing else makes the phone hot, only browsing the net. And it's eating a lot of battery therefore.
Apart from that, there was nothing else spotted, all running well, not a single crash.crash.
@lduboeuf Thank you. I have already flashed my old BQ4.5 (with broken screen) and it was easy.
Just one question: can I download DEKKO (which is not present in the Open Store) after flash?
For me it is a fundamental application.
@GIEMME you can download it from Ubuntu Store as is still present there.
@Stefano is there fingerprint support in rev2 of pro5？
@zsoltmd NO fingerprint support in rev2. Maybe later. I would rather see the Bluetooth bug fixed then this one though.
@Lars which CM do you use? Would you send me a link? I am lost, because I have a ~400EUR first class hardware and no useable software:
#1 RR AOSP Android: very-very unstable RIL and fingerprint unlock, autoplay music when earphone unplugged
#2 Flyme: autoplay music when earphone unplugged (loud music!), spyware
#3 Ubuntu Touch: khmm, you know...
@Stefano would you summary your experience about UBports image on pro5? Do you use as daily driver?
@darkeye would you summary your experience? Should I switch back to UT?
I flashed my BQ4.5 yesterday and the device work fine.
I have only two problems:
- the first is that there is no Scope "Today" (or at least what was default in Canonical's original image).
- The second is that there isn't ringtone than I did for calls (the original custom BQ ... guitar arpeggio type ;-))
Hey @zsoltmd ,
It working great!
My experience is the same as in the old official ubuntu release with better looking scopes
also for some reason it seems much faster...
The only issues I noticed are :
- The HERE Location Service is missing so it doesn't know where I am when i'm inside a building.
- Telegram notifications seems to be hit and miss.
- Some scopes are missing (Favourite Contacts, Holidays, etc...)
After first 24 Hours using new Ubport Ubuntu Touch I have to say I'm impressed with it! Mobile signal not dropping anymore, nicely switches between 2,G 3G,H, 4G, what original Ubuntu image never managed. So no more issues with network seems. GPS works as well, I tested Unav and works.
The only thing that is still buggy is the Bluetooth and hands free calling, lot of noise, can't hear the other party.
Maybe Browser need a little of work, but for now it is usable as a daily driver.
Yeah, snap image would be nice, but not sure if Uborts will do it for Legacy phones. But it would be sweet!
@darkeye you can get the Scopes from and old Ubuntu store
I own BQ Aquarius E5 HD. I would like to add few testing points on the build I installed today using ubports guide.
Wifi Hotspot - working ok
3G speed also works as expected.
Phone works smoothly. Feels better than original Ubuntu OS.
Loqui IM does not work. It fails to send verification sms on this build. Might be app specific issue but still I am mentioning as a test case.
@Stefano do you know what are they called as I couldn't find it with the obvious names ( contacts,favorites,holidays,events,etc... )
