Oneplus 3/3T



  • @Cuiyn said in Oneplus 3/3T:

    I have successfully installed Ubuntu Touch on my Oneplus 3. Thanks for the great work!

    However I can't use sudo apt update in terminal. Error messages seem to say that, the repository does not have a release file, and the file system is read-only (although I use sudo). And I wanted to make a copy of the /etc/apt/source.list file with sudo cp source.list source.list.old, but I still got an error said that the file system is read-only.

    I noticed that the user displayed on the terminal is "phablet", and I used my 4-digit passcode when sudo asked me for password. I don't know if there's a problem.

    Could anyone please give me some suggestions? Any help will be appreciated!

    Ubuntu Touch does not use apt for updating.

    Best regards,
    Steve Berson



  • @TotalSonic Thanks for your reply! Does it mean that I must use Libertine if I want to install and use CLI programs?
    I'm new to Ubuntu Touch, however I have been using Ubuntu for several years. I would feel more comfortable if I can use CLI programs like what I do on Ubuntu.



  • @Cuiyn use ut-tweak tool to make disk writeable. You can also try "sudo mount -o remount,rw /" as a temporary access.



  • I've successfully installed UT on OP3 but unfortunately it is not recognized by the computer afterwards (developer mode on, screen unlocked). It also cannot save photos or update apps (system update worked). Even it's not possible to enter the password in the terminal. The udev-rules are updated and the data partition is ext4. Do I have to make some changes? Thanks for your support!



  • @ma Have a look here for more info and some extra apps care of @mateo_salta https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3323/arm64-apps-and-testing The apps will update as and when, but are few and far between at the moment but that will change. Photos work on my OP3 think there is an issue with 3T. Mdt still not working yet though if you have it connected while updating via wifi/data it does show up then but vanishes on reboot.



  • @paci87 This way is great! Thank you very much!



  • Hello everyone!
    I just got Ubuntu touch installed on my OP3T

    However I cant upload any files (to twitter, drive, or even as backround).
    is this a know issue and can it be fixed?



  • @ComLarsic
    Yes it's a known issue, it will be resolve at some point.



  • @ernest alright then, guess ill wait and see 🙂



  • By way of an update I had a little bit of time again to play around with this and following the excellent help from @mateo_salta managed to get somewhere.

    A little headache with the install since the UBPorts installer had changed meant that I had to go back a step and follow the instructions right at the top

    Ie wipe phone with twrp PLUS change the file type where I could in twrp to EXT4 then reran the UBports installer and it worked again!

    The next trick involved reading instructions a little clearly as to try to install the Openstore click using the first link we had did not work (it was not for 64bit!) so using @mateo_salta google drive I managed to download it then install via the terminal using the pkcon instruction above.

    Bingo

    Open store Downloaded and installed as well as UT Tweak

    Now to add some functionality as I note I still need some more apps.

    Camera I can confirm does not take pictures on my device (yet) but it does open and switch cameras

    Lots to do and cant wait to get cracking again on this.

    Smaller update. I note a few things:

    Updates via Open store dont seem to want to work even though the system is writeable and also the device is not picked up when plugged into a laptop.

    All fixable I am sure.

    In the meantime I have got lots more apps installed and noticed all my older apps are not working even though they installed via the Openstore ...thats for later!

  • What is the main difference between Vince1171's first solution and the UBports install? I tried both and I had much better functionality with the first version so I'm currently using that(halium-install).



  • I got tired of the "Powered by android" splash screen and made some better. You can download them from here if you want to: https://drive.google.com/open?id=15bSTImzwnDRPqYP0-s057_6JONb6JzU9
    Install zip files from TWRP and reboot. 🙂

    Strange it is the web apps with ogra containers that dont work



  • @paci87 nice work, will this overwrite the "your device is unlocked" screen as well?



  • @dieharddan thanks! No, that should be pure text based. https://github.com/ethanbanker2428/SplashInjector
    I used this one. Additionally the battery low and fastboot splash screens can be edited.



  • Can anyone shed any light on whats happening with updates on my OP3T?

    In System Settings there are 2 updates available both of which will not install. One is the Terminal app and that has been showing since installation of the OS. More recently an update for OpenStore has shown up; also fails to install. I wonder if these are armhf updates?

    But there is also an ubuntu touch Version 44 update that has downloaded but does not install. This one appeared after I checked the update settings. The channel is still edge, but when taking a look in the channel settings there are two edge channels in the list. Is this how it should be, does anyone know?



  • @ziggutas I have the same with the app updates and you can't swipe right and delete them. The system update you can swipe right and delete I think. I'm guessing the update system is a little flawed at the moment and you can add fluffychat to the list now.
    As for the channels, one is going to be the normal edge channel available to everybody and should not be used on a DD at all. The second is again not 100% on this the arm64 version of edge for OP3/T as there is no dev, RC and stable for that.



  • Same issues for me. I went ahead and performed the update via the installer



  • @Lakotaubp OK, thanks. I best leave the channel settings as they are...there is no way to distinguish between the two 'edg' entries.



  • I can't connect to my phone with adb, only in recovery mode. I ran out of ideas. Does it work for any of you?
