Want To Develop UT And Need A Device

  • 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.

  • Hi i am a dev from pakistan worked on .net, nodejs and currently golang. Also linux lover used ubuntu, debian, fedora and opensuse. i am interested to test out these linux phones as replacement to iphone and android and what dev capabilities they have out of the box.

  • Hi, i'm living in Turkey and working with Python and PyQt. I used lots of different GNU/Linux distros and huge fan of FOSS. i would love to contribute.

  • I'd be very interested. I've been looking for a compatible device, in good condition, for a while now. I was a developer for a Linux distro called "Entropy Linux". I also have experience with custom Android roms, where I think the skills could translate and I'm currently developing a game, using unity, for Linux and Android which I would love to port to Ubuntu touch.

  • Hello UBports!
    I am Brazilian and would like to help in the development of Ubuntu Touch, I am a Shell programmer and web developer, I will be happy to help you, you can donate the device you prefer, I have no preference to choose.
    Wait the return!

  • @UBportsNews I am interested in helping with development. I am eager to get started as soon as possible.

  • Hi @UBportsNews!
    We would like to request one of the device. Although we won't be able to develop anything, but we hope we would be able to publish reviews and experience of the latest UBports on our website abhifx.com.

  • @UBportsNews i'm also interested. i can help with linux low-level driver coding an UI with Qt.

  • @UBportsNews Hi, I would like to contribute to the OS development. I haven't had a hands on with UTouch so far, so I'd be grateful to have a device from this stack.
    By interest I am a smartphone geek and have ported hybris/SailfishOS to my previous device (YU Yureka-YU5510), I also attempted porting halium but was limited by the device's partition structures not being able to swallow the halium-boot.

    I am a software developer based in India, working with dotnet framework at my workplace, which is somewhat unhelpful for Qt development but I've played with c++ quite often during my bachelor's course.

  • hi guys. In Italy so many friends want to quit with android and IOS and discover linux with the incredible work you're doing. I'm trying to test it through OP3 but a device like these would be great 🙂

  • I am interested in working on the ubports project. Since I am super green I am wondering if it is possible to work on it without a device? I don't want to take one away from someone who needs it more if I am just starting out contributing.

  • Hi @UBportsNews , I am a Network Dev Engineer and have a good knowledge in IP Stack, Kernel development, kernel crash analysis, Open Networking and also OpenSSH. Along with this having an experience in working with Web development and Android app development. So I would like to use this opportunity to look for contribution to open-source as well as learn from them.

    Thank you,

  • @UBportsNews Hey! UK, London based Python and C++ developer here. I can't wait for Pinephone and Librem 5 as I really want to start coding/testing on Linux based device. I went fully Remote now so I can start dedicating my time to open source stuff. I am currently working on an open Bioinformatics tool, and it would be cool to get it running on a device like that too. I am very interested.

  • Hey @UBportsNews,

    I'm maintainer of OrbTk https://gitlab.redox-os.org/redox-os/orbtk it's an (G)UI Toolkit written in Rust. It is a personal matter to port it to Ubuntu Touch. At the moment I have one device (OPO) for Android and Ubuntu Touch. Unfortunately have switch back and forth between UT and Android. It would be much more comfortable if I had a single device only for UT. If you think it is worth more to give a device to one how want to contribute direct to UT it's fine and I'll definitely keep going with the port.

  • Hello, I'm in Italy and Ubuntu is only for a few people. I'd like to help you with bug-testing on UT and to give a chance to everyone to know UT.


  • @UBportsNews
    I would love to help with Ubuntu touch development. I'm in Canada, and have done work on mobile before. Willing to help develop the OS as well.

  • I am interested in helping. I am developing some native apps on gnome for a touch device, such as SIP Phone, Domotik Controller, Internet Radio and a Wireshark-a-like app.

    What I need is maybe the phone. For testing the Network Bands in Mexico and the functionality for a final user.

    Hope you can contact me.

  • Would love to try and get into developing this.
