Want To Develop UT And Need A Device

  • Our old friends at Canonical have given us some more Ubuntu Touch devices to use for further development. So here's the offer. If you want to help develop Ubuntu Touch and need a device let us know here and someone will be in touch.

  • @UBportsNews Hi, I'd be willing to help with bug-testing on UT. Not much help with development (lack skills).

    Best, Ian

  • @UBportsNews I'm interested . Already have a N5 as a daily driver and thanks to another community member will have a Meizu Pro5 soon. So i guess i'm not in priority list, but if any device left,i will be thanksfull.

  • @UBportsNews
    If you need a donkey to flash ubports on them, and then ship them on as ubports devices, I am retired,loads of free time

  • @UBportsNews
    Hi, I'd like to be more involved in UT development.
    I'm a software developer, I already have a Nexus5 as my daily drive.
    So having another phone to start developing core apps or system apps would be nice.

  • @UBportsNews I've been running UT as my daily driver on a Meizu MX4 and a N5, but they're both broken now :-(.
    Up to now, I've been helping with bug reporting and testing and recently devloping web-apps with clickable. I'd be willing to learn developing with QML and Python! So, yes, I'm interested!

  • how about you look up " Glenn Michael Cady ". on FB, and see if he would help as a dev, he is the one that does the "Ultimate Edition" Ubuntu OS, he is in Ohio, I believe he has written MTK stuff.
    Maybe bribe him with a freeby,I know he just got a,umidigi F1,a couple of weeks ago.
    Just a random thought.

  • As a new device developer (still stuck in my Motorola surnia porting) it could be useful to have devices for testing and fixing things for improving my skills. What are the conditions? I'm willing to help, at least, in making UBPorts better.

  • I would be interested in joining you as a tester, I am interested in learning and developing skills needed to assist you guys in this project.


  • I would be intesred! I'm UK based.

  • @UBportsNews Hi. I am interested to develope OS. Is it bad that I am Finnish? Also I need device

  • @UBportsNews
    Hello, I am from Spain and I am very interested in developing applications, I developed a multiplatform app and I would like it to be available in Ubuntu Touch. I bought a BQ E5 but apparently it was not compatible, so I am still looking for a mobile to adapt the app. (The app needs GPS support).

    Have a good day. šŸ˜

  • Hello ! Iā€™m the swiss from Instagram, I would like to help and improve my skills too. I'll do my best to make Ubuntu Touch better !

  • Hi, i'm Italian and i'm interested

  • @UBportsNews
    I have ported two device Moto G 2014 and LGV20.
    I'm from Tunisia. Can help you to do more port.

  • I have a Bq Aquaris E4.5 with broken touchscreen (some dead zones and quite often the whole screen dies needing a reboot) an all sensors broken: mostly unusable, lying in a drawer atm...
    so I bought a Nexus 5, whose power button decided to detach itself and the hack I made to use it without the button doesn't work well and it's quite intricate. also the image on the screen started moving up and down, especially when charging it. I used it as a daily driver since few weeks ago when I replaced it with a Lumia 1020...
    I don't want to steal a phone to someone that needs it more than me but if you have a spare one, I'd like to receive it!

  • Hey šŸ™‚ , What would be great is if they had Fairphone 2 as there's 2 issues in the camera that i can't investigate without it.
    Barring that if you guys can spare and it's possible i would be happy to have any device with USB OTG display as i'm in the middle of adding convergence to the clock ( and the camera after that) and it would better to actually use a converged device instead of emulating it on the desktop.

    Thanks and keep up the good work šŸ‘

  • That's awesome! Thanks UBports. Thanks Canonical!

    I have a N7 tablet with UT and quite enjoy it, but I dont spend too much time using it. I think I might be able to contribute more if I would have more stake in the game, by carrying around a UT in phone form factor.

    Not wanting to sound unreasonable, but maybe it would also help to have a N7 'flo' next my own 'deb'. Sometimes there's issues affect one or the other. Also for halium porting the deb it might be helpful to have a flo (e.g., flo can do bluetooth, deb cannot).

  • If there are any that are not BQ4.5 and Nexus 5 we'd be interested in one for the Instagram account.

  • @UBportsNews Hello!
    I'd love to contribute to Ubuntu touch, but I don't have a compatible device. I do Qt and QML. Any one device would be very helpful.
