@Daelaam yes, way better, thank you.
I'm chatting with other moderators now and I'll tell you our conclusion when we have one (Sundays are slow days for that kind of matter).

@Daelaam : Sounds great!
Some in the german community are currently thinking about founding a co-operative do do exactly what you are planning with a community based legal entity.
Have a look here on matrix.org:
or here on telegram
You and every other interested community member are very much welcome to join.
Maybe we should join forces. We (the german group) currently have no idea where to get new and up to date UT compatile phones with no OS.
This is an interesting and novel idea. I do see a big problem with it in the redistribution of the proprietary drivers and firmware on the device which you may not have permission to do. You may need to ask your legal counsel if that is something you should be worried about.
i'll take one, but tell me if its the chinese or the international version?
@speedracer08861 It was Chinese version days ago , 99% like-new status .
I found 3 huge challenge while loading UT
- Changing it to international version
- Unlock bootloader
- Repartition 4 partions
- Make fingerprint work.
@Daelaam How did you manage fingerprint to work on 16.04?

@Stefano you can do this regarding the fingerprint reader, I did it on 16.04:
@Daelaam Also, some people with Td-lte have problem with wifi not remembering password. They might complain about it later on.
the chinese version of this phone has many problems such as the call quality dropping as the conversation gets longer. The other problem is that the battery's fast drain and overheating issue. Have you been able to fix that? $300 for the chinese version is way to expensive. THere is no wya to change it to the internation version if you have the chinese version. THe radios are also different, the processors are different. xda did an article on this and so did the ubuntu touch forums. I would have to find it so you can see all of the differences.

@speedracer08861 Strange, I had to replace my mother board on my Pro5, I got one from AliExpress in chinese version, after a lot of try, I was able to root the phone, change a partition and transformed it to international. The phone call are working fine, I have 4G LTE and H (in France), the battery is during 1d 1/2, no over heating.
@speedracer08861 Can you share the xda page you are talking about , I also want to know
@Stefano I don't see this problem on my device , I will consider that as a test item
@speedracer08861 AFAIK the processors are the same , samsung 8 core,
I am agree with you that radio and modern thing itself is problematic .
I checked this post
some people are ok with td-lte version , maybe it is vary and depends on the country and carrier.
What is your color of the PRO 5 mine is the white front with the rose gold back
