  • @Flohack i will help out as soon as I remember to charge and flash the build onto my N5



  • I'll have an N5 available as soon as I replace its power switch... very interested to try it!



  • @Flohack I have a beloved N5. Would be happy to help test!



  • For further clarification: This post will only be used for alphatesting, once finished it will move to here: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3614/lge-nexus-5-hammerhead - and there is also the link to the manifest if you want to try on your own



  • Hi, I would like to help test! How can I be effective with this? Is it simply test some functions and report back, or does it go more in depth? I'm pretty skilled with technology, but I'm not a practiced programmer. I can do troubleshooting just fine, but I will likely need guidance if I need to dig into the hows and whys.



  • @Manchee1017 Yeah basically the idea is to verify the list of things I posted. So I think feature x is working, but I need other people to confirm, and also to find maybe things I forgot.
    I do not have an installable image yet, will try to fix that today eve.

    I am happy to do anything to help support this phone which is the most common phone to introduce new users to UBports as it's so easily available and easy to repair.
    I should be able to test out the new image, I have a spare Nexus 5 laying around to play with.
