Is there a list of what works and what doesn't on Xenial?
@mihael I did a clean install, wiped it all, so can't tell you. It's easy to do. Flash TWRP recovery, backup your current UT to external_sd, flash Ubuntu recovery again and flash it with ubuntu-device-flash. Then when you finish with testing, flash againg TWRP recovery, backup Xenial to external_sd ( if you want) wipe it clean (apart from external_sd) and restore with TWRP recovery. Then flash Ubuntu recovery and it will be in same state as before upgrade. Just like with Android.
@speedracer08861 Thank you again for your answer but I must ask just to be sure: are you talking about Xenial? or about the current Vivid?
@Stefano Great! When I switched to ubports I used the installer and everything was smooth and no data lost.
What about Dekko 2? - did you have a chance to test it on Xenial? Thank you again!
@mihael Not yet, I might test it later and if, then I'll report on it.
@mihael Dekko 2 works, with some quirks, same as on 15.04. File manager doesn't. Bluetooth calling doesn't work at all= no sound whatsoever.
@Stefano Thank you very much for taking the time to test it and helping me with this! I will think more but maybe I will wait for a RC version of Xenial before I switch - my Meizu Pro5 is my daily driver...
flash Ubuntu recovery again
@Stefano Could you explicit this step? I once tried to "fastboot flash" a Ubuntu recovery image I found searching the source code of MDT, but apparently it was a old one...Where did you get the last image of Ubuntu recovery?
and flash it with ubuntu-device-flash
@mihael oh yes, wait for rc, I will as well. I just tested it, but it's not ready for a daily ride
@oli.sax FLASH UBUNTU RECOVERY AGAIN = I meant, reboot to fastboot mode(bootloader) and type in terminal:
sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery-turbo.img
and FLASH IT WITH UBUNTU-DEVICE-FLASH = I meant, opening up the TERMINAL application on your Ubuntu PC, phone rebooted to recovery and typed:
ubuntu-device-flash --server=https://system-image.ubports.com touch --device=turbo --channel=ubports-touch/16.04/devel
there are more ways to flash 16.04, but I prefer this method with Terminal
I have tested it in my pro5, I had a hitch,it would get as far as the Ubuntu boot screen,whilst installing and hang there,but it was installing even so,google+ kicks me off,even going in the browser. But wifi ,cell phone,email,FB, working
file manager, gps+ maps (not linking up).2g resetting after reboot still there.
I was hoping to be able to update as we went along with improvements.
The guys need pat on the back for this,very slick so far.
For those interested I would like to add these two links about the progress:
