What is the state of Ubuntu Touch at the moment on Pinephone?
I used ubports for ages on a one plus 1 and the bq.
I bought a pinephone when it came out but it went unused. I've recently picked it back up and most of ubports on the pinephone seems broken.
Some queries I have
-Installing transmission just has it stuck on "Extract transmission"
-Is ubports getting firefox anytime soon?
-Even after charging for ages and leaving my phone connected to wifi it doesn't seem like any OS updates are available?
Has there not been an OS update for pinephone in the 2(maybe even 3 or 4) years since I bought the phone?
@LemmyMemy After Dalton left the project development for the PinePhone had indeed stalled. But there is good news on that front!
Recently there has been renewed effort into bringing Focal to the PinePhone.. I am very excited about this new development. Oren is really moving things forward. The PinePhone now runs on a kernel even more recent than the laptop I am writing this on.
Is ubports getting firefox anytime soon?
Ubuntu Touch (that's the name of the OS... UBports is the group of people supporting it) is probably not getting Firefox soon. That is because Firefox doesn't make it easy to build a browser that integrates with the OS.
@arubislander This is very good news.
