[Porting] Call for testers
@Flohack A little late to the party, but I just received a pixel 2 xl, and I would very much like to help out with testing if you're still looking for testers.
@ianzimmyman Sure mnore testers means finding more issues ^^
That said, I did not have much time to invest on both Pixel and Pixel 2 but will do so starting next week I would say.
I'm interested in testing pixel 2 xl
I have a 2xl have been waiting for Linux on my phone forever would be more than happy to test
- Fingerprint sensor was confirmed to be working for 2XL
- Automatic brightness fixed as well
So thats the good news. As I understood, no one can run the port on the Pixel 2 (walleye) so far, as it keeps rebooting, is that correct?
@flohack if I had a 2 I would test for you but I have a 2xl
@flohack how could i go through the corrections ??? should i do the process from the beginning with commands ??? do i have to download some files again ???
I have a Pixel 2 I can test on
I got one for testing and development
I have a pixel 2 and also interested in testing.
Link pls ?
I wanna try ihav p2

Defo interested in testing this on my pixel xl2
@flohack Sorry for the noob question in advanced but i'm used to flashing Lineage os images on arch Linux
the below command i'm not sure it can be performed in arch Linux
mounting the actual UT OS
When performing this step, TWRP recovery must be run:
Release ./halium-install-standalone.sh -p ut -s ubuntu-touch-android9-arm64.tar.gz system.img
if i run
sudo ./halium-install-standalone.sh -p ut -s ubuntu-touch-android9-arm64.tar.gz system.img
i get the below
qemu-arm-static not found in $PATH
make sure you have all dependencies installed.
dependencies: qemu-utils binfmt-support qemu-user-static e2fsprogs sudo simg2img
most of which i can't get on arch
i'm guessing for now there is no option to run the script on anything but Ubuntu?
@adamjonn Hi, yes unfortunately there are some Ubuntu-specific parts in that toolchain.
We are working hard on getting the device into the UBports Installer, which is kinda blocked by the very small system partition the device has currently.
I hope over the next weeks / months to get this resolved.
@flohack thanks for getting back to me, i look forward to trying it when it is done in the mean time might use gnome box and install Ubuntu to try the current build.
will it also have anbox capabilities dare say i am fairly invested in android apps which i uses on my arch distro.
keep up the fantastic work! i watch another review of your work posted earlier today very high praise as always.
Installer config for the 2 Xl is available: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/6199/beta-pixel-2-xl-installer-config
Please test ( not with the Pixel 2 please, only 2 XL!)
Some update, got MTP working today, now next big thing to do is call audio
Call audio working now, but needs to be merged into the rootfs, hence its not rolled out now and I will report later when it can be tested.
But it also works with speakerphone! I will update the devices page later, seems Pixel 2 goes towards daily usage ^^
