Can't install Ubuntu Touch on Sony Xperia X Performance
As I try to install Ubuntu Touch on my Sony Xperia X Performance. It flashes, cleans, and is on the 'preparing' when the phone boots (the message appears 'your phone is unlocked and can't be trusted, phone will boot in 5 seconds') It goes to the Sony boot screen, leaving fastboot mode, and then the Ubuntu Installer loses connection and fails to install. Any ideas what is going on?
@kophamerla Have a look here https://forums.ubports.com/topic/4147/sony-xperia-x-performance-dora-f8131-f8132/13 it might help.
Thanks for the post. I went through that fix and still have the same issue. Seems like it didn't work for some other people either.
Any ideas what is going on?
That sounds like adb connection lost.
What OS is on your PC?
@kophamerla Can only remember on OP£ that meant using twrp and changing and clearing all partitions to fat32, but may well be different on yours. I would ask in that thread if you have not already.
@Keneda I was doing the install on the Ubuntu side of my computer.
I use windows 7 (gamer back in time), so if you have a windows side, try this :
- boot your phone in normal mode, then connect it to windows PC via usb, attach ABD driver to the new device, then unconnect phone
- boot into fastboot and do the same
- boot in recovery and then again, attach adb
- Then run ubports installer
I ran into an issue when installing ubports uTouch on my canonical uTouch MX4 where i lost adb when entering recovery.
I tried hard to figure out what was the problem.
3 days later i found it was because when booting in the three differents "modes" of the phone, device that PC "sees" is not the same, so adb driver was not loaded for "recovery" device even if i attached it to "normal" device.
Recently i bough an androïd N5 to put uTouch on it, that time i attached drivers from begenning to each "device" (windows even found drivers on windows update, wich it didn't for MX4, anyway...), and runned ubports installer without any problem, installing uTouch worked the first time i tried.
Don't know how driver pairing works on Linux, but your problem sounds like mine, really.
I sort of had the same issue today (among others), but a helpful member of the german UBports Telegram group helped me with the install. It runs now- Wohooo!
The trick was to use TWRP to format AND wipe the data partition. Afterwards it went smoothly.
This was addressed in this post already.
I have a normal Xperia X and had the same issue and wiping partitions via TWRP does fix this issue
