Installing Android on BQ Aquaris E5 Ubuntu Edition
I recently broke the touchscreen of my "Aquaris E5 Ubuntu edition"-phone.
I bought another but it does not work properly. The screen has the android-3-buttons at the bottom which was not the case on the original one. I suspect it behaves differently from the original one. Actually, it looks like the touchscreen is not calibrated. There is a scale and an offset . I found no way to calibrate it in on UBports.
So ... I would like to try install an android system. I visited this page : https://docs.ubuntu.com/phone/en/devices/reinstalling-android but no android image is given for "BQ Aquaris E5 Ubuntu edition".
Could someone give a piece of advice about all that.
@advocatux : thank you. Actually, I had already downloaded this before but the zip does not contain the
flash_all.sh. I can use
fastbootto do it manually (source) but I do not know which
.imgfiles I must install nor if the order is critical. Below is the list of
boot.img boot-verified.img cache.img ramdisk.img ramdisk-recovery.img ramdisk-recovery-bthdr.img recovery.img recovery_bthdr.img recovery-verified.img secro.img secro-verified.img system.img userdata.img
Below are the other files:

Please see this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9OQovPAbw4 to get a general idea of the process (that video shows Windows but the process is similar in Linux).
@Vincent_R just to be clear, you can find that
Drivers&Tool.rarfile I'm talking about at https://www.bq.com/en/support/aquaris-e5/support-sheet clicking on "Drivers Drivers and utilities" (that'll download this https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/bq-file-sharing/Drivers%26Tool.rar).
@advocatux : thank you. I finally managed to install android on the phone with your help.
Unfortunately, the touchscreen keeps working bad with Android. I will ask a refund to aliexpress seller.
Have a nice day.
