[Porting] Call for Testers
- No, call audio wont work anywhere, the problem is the routing from the modem into the soundcard
- Anbox patches are not applied. However, Anbox is bleeding alpha, drains battery a lot and is not recommended for daily use. Most apps that use any kind of Google Play services etc wont work as well. Also its based on a very old Android, so most apps struggle with that. I think its Android 5 or so. In my opinion its a nice demo of whats possible, but not more than that.
- Camera: We cannot use any software algorithms that Google does to get the camera on its full power, but basic capabilities should be fine.
@flohack I recall my Note 4 saying anbox was 7.1, could it possibly be based on halium version?
@tigerpro No, its an image of a certain Android version, it has nothing to do with the device´s version. I dont think its 7.1 but who knows ^^

Installed on my old Sailfish. Install was fine, no issues.
Apart from the known cellular issue, my install has no sound at all. Is this a known issue?
One other thing - I've noticed it shows a notification icon at the top of the screen but when I go to notifications there is nothing there?
@falcon15500 Oh sound should work on Sailfish, I will check again. Yes also notification might have issues
hello I have a lg aristo 3+ and I want to know if there is any contribution for this phone?

This ain't the right place for this kind of question.
AFAK, no port is in progress, please check there for compatible devices : https://devices.ubuntu-touch.io/
I finally been able to install Ubuntu Touch on my Goole Pixel XL. I would want to know if I'll need to flash every next release to get fixes and updates.
Thanks a lot for the port.
Also, could the bootloader be locked without losing any files after the installation is done?

I don't think Pixel XL is already in the OTA update processe, it's not handled by ubports installer though.

I have several Pixel 3As abd am available for testing. sageteamobile.
forgot to say that for some reason I don't know, the smartphone automatically start to the android bootloader (the one with the robot), after being powered off.
@fellfromthesky uh thats a though question, in principle yes. But if you do so, and you would ever have an issue with Ubuntu Touch that prevents it from booting, you could never access your data again so we do not recommend this under all circumstances.
The problem is less visible for Android phones where the apps save most data in the cloud, and also cloud backup is possible. But we are simply not there yet to support such options.
I'll let the smartphone as it is right now until the official release.
Hey, I have a Pixel XL and am 100% willing to test! My Pixel is fully functional and I have plenty of spare devices.
Also, since you have both a Pixel and Pixel 2, you might want to join t.me/Pixel1Chat and t.me/Pixel2Chat . They're run by me and a few friends, and you'll find lots of testers there too.
@yagya Thanks! Unfortunately neither of them has recovery working, and this blocks us a bit for making a wider test. I will come back as soon as we have solved this.

I just installed Ubport on my Google Pixel XL Marlin and for now I did not see any problem!
I have a Pixel with 25.11 GB free space.
But with Android 10
May I help testing ?
Hi guys, just an update, I am trying to solve the puzzle of Pixel/XL having a too small system partition for our installer. I am near a solution, but need a bit more time. Before thats solved more testing makes on sense since that problem would be a major blocker for that device. So, sit back and relax, I hope to come back with an installer config soon
And BTW also SIM card is not detected so Pixel is really in early state only.
Hi there @Flohack , I've recently flashed my Pixel XL and am quite happy with the result thus far, hoping to do more testing for you when a new revision is available!
Any update on the progress on this device? Cheers!
