Nexus 6p sucess
After along waited development of ubports i finally decided to install ubuntu on my 6p the flash went flawless reverted to 7.1.2 stock booted twrp formatted all partitions and pulgged the phone to the pc and started the ubport installer, couldent have taken that long to install because i was only out of the house long enough to enjoy a left handed smoke,any way upon getting through the setup i relized that the vpn pannel in settings does not allow openvpn config so for those of you out there that may have a few questions they might be answerd here, anyway i just run the .opvn config in terminal with command “openvpn (.opvn confug name here) copy and paste is a bit sketchy at the moment so in the same dir as my .opvn configs i created a .txt file called auth-user-passpass.txt with only two lines fist line username second line pass and saved it in openvpn config when you open it there is a line that says auth-user-pass next to it i added user-auth-passpass.txt and saved it . From terminal running the command above to start openvpn loogged in a was good to go ,unfortunatly terminal has to STAY OPEN or connection drops. So moving on apt updates / dpkg lock by default are blocked and do auto updates via settings update so i had to use these commands to be able to one mount the system and two to keep the system read write
Sudo mount -o remount,rw/
Sudo rm -f /var/lib/dpkg/lock
Sudo dpkg --reconfigure -a
WaLa worked like a charm now ive seen posts about losing updates if you go about altering the system but i beg to differ because about 2 hours afterbi recived a update and phone rebotted to install it now installing or removing packages pre determined with the inital install may effect compatibality of updates and make tgem break so BE CAREFUL.
I pianobar just for the h3!! Of it and was pleased ti to see that i have full audio support running it on the 6p works gret connected in the car and home sterio ( (because who wants ads in there pandora music right lol;) **/)
Like i said above the only downfall to the terminal is that it has to remain on the screen open it would be nice to see a upgrade pass through where you can still have audio via terminal while having it in the background as of now its a bummer but the lux of it working mobile is awsome.
I did a breif run through of all the apps seems if you open to many windows you get a screen that like to freeze up some times closing the screen and openimg gives you enough time to swipe some windos closed so no reboot is required but initally before i figured this out it was boot ugg reboot etc over and over so long as you keep a min of like 4 windows open or less i havent had a issue
Alsi ive read that there is a core issue with this install and overheating as far as i can tell my phone tem has remained low and have not had a issue with this as others have said i moniterd my phones heat activitay all night using a thermal cam and it stayed with the same reasonable temp all night screen on running pianobar in terminal with several windows open in the back.
From what i can see ubports has come along way and i am impressed ,for years if flashed rom after rom this is gonma stay i have found my home rom lol;)
Now anbox wont run on nexus 6p so no android app support is avialble but im sure in the future a work around will come about
There is however a small bug in the libertain contaimer on here and ive had trouble removing imstalled apps within it and had to do it manually via terminal but i cant complain
Nedless to say on 6p it runs all the issues with gps,bluetooth etc as of now i have not seen nor noticed iv yet to try using nfc so im not sure as the results there but what i do know is a work in progress is just that...
Pretty sure ill be making a contribution because id love to see a full working and repeated system update for years to come on this dev
Now the external wifi adapter and adb not working is a bummer id love to see a fix for that asap consideringi ts most benifical in many ways although adb does work while the phone is on if rebooted to ubport recovery it seems to work as expected
As i said ive only been a user of this dev for about 30 hours and there is still roadblocks to be broken but as far as a every day useable phone it works like a charm,phone,sms,internet etc no issues
If there ever any questions hit me up i may be able to help im not a dev just a linux baby from ummm well the day it became
Thanks devs for all your time and work on this project i hope for years to come this project superseeds all expecatations and becomes a unervisal god on phones;)
@cor3 also aside from the external wireless adapter id love to see the internal chipset working for injection as the nexus 6p chiset supports internal mon mode and injection that would just be a night in my shineing armor OMG

@cor3 to get around the need of keeping the Terminal app in the foreground, you can down load the Ubuntu Touch Tweak Tool (UTTT) and Prevent app suspension for the Terminal app. This can be found under the Apps + Scopes menu item, just scroll to and select the Terminal app.
@arubislander thank you ill adjust the settings in a moment
