Installing Ubuntu Touch on the Sony Xperia XZ1



  • Greetings all,

    I'm working on getting UT working on my Sony XZ1 but have reached a dead-end as far as I can tell. The device has been proven to work to an acceptable level by at least one user/developer, but it seems his repository files expired for this project.

    Here is the device page for my particular phone, as well as a YouTube video of the device working properly. Unfortunately, the poster of the video gave no assistance as far how the installation process goes.

    Can anyone help steer me in the right direction?

    Thank you very very much!

    Stephen

  • Hi,

    I'm so happy, that someone remembered about old xperias. They are great! 🙂

    However honami is xperia z1 (xperia xz1 is called poplar).

    Which halium version did you build? If there are so many problems maybe you could consider halium 9 porting with Generic System Image (GSI)? As there are Lineage 16 avaliable for honami (and other based on android 8 and later) so all after project treble where device specific code is moved to vendor partition. Read about the differences between previous halium version and 9 in GSI llink

    I'm not a developer but I hope it may be helpful 🙂

    Do you have any experience which you could find helpful and share about porrting UT to sony phones? I have couple devices which I'd like to be running UT,

    1. Xperia XZ1 compact (lilac) - now I'm working on it...
    2. Xperia XZ1 dual (poplar_dsds)
    3. Xperia Z2 (sirius) - same "z" family as honami
    4. Xperia Z3 compact (z3c) - same "z" family as honami
