Unsolved The state of Volla x23, for all users out there.
So for me, Ubuntu Touch, nothing works. It's almost like a comedy how absolutely nothing works. Now this is not critique to UBports, nor Volla really. But the combination of them two, multiboot and first release of rom, is so confusing for me I can't figure out where to even start debugging UT.
So all I want is to know if you have the same problems.
This doesn't work for me.
Apt install anything, for example waydroid as remount, rw.
Waydroid in libertine, nor anbox.
Update channel, developer or candidate.
And more, I can't do a thing accept these clickapps.
@Rinkeby For all WayDriod issues try here https://t.me/waydroidonut on Telegram or the Forum here https://forums.ubports.com/category/102/waydroid if Waydroid runs on the Volla x23 as I don not know. Please remember WayDroid is a seperete project to UT so best go direct. As for the update channels if the dual boot system on the Volla is not working correctly then that will stop UT channels work correctly I guess. UT does not again directly support dual boot.
To install Libertine use system Settings in UT and make sure the screen is set to stay on in Battery setting till the install is complete. I also don't think Waydroid is meant to run inside Libertine. Two different things for two different jobs but the WaydDroid group should help with that.
Think you a few issues over lapping and stopping each other but as I don't own a Volla can only point you at the other group.
@Rinkeby The repository for UT and Volla X23 is https://gitlab.com/groups/ubports/porting/reference-device-ports/halium12/volla-x23/-/issues .
You can find some infos or put comments in this issue open about Waydroid : https://gitlab.com/ubports/porting/reference-device-ports/halium12/volla-x23/volla-vidofnir/-/issues/1
@domubpkm Do you know if these issues are related to the dual boot or just UT? I thought UT was working fairly well on the Volla phones on it's own (let's exclude WayDroid for now) and if that is so is there a Volla Forum with a discussion on dual boot. This is just for my info really as I have no direct Volla use experience.
@Rinkeby Volla have a FAQ section on their web site with information about setting up/running dual boot. You cannot update via OTA or change channels. You update within dual boot when an updated image is released. Cheers
@Lakotaubp Hello. I just did a quick search this morning to see if there was an open repo regarding the Volla X23 and UT. I didn't push my research any further.
Thanks guys! Pretty helpfull. I look into the repo and links you sent me.
When it comes to X23 and UT as running with stability and compability its pretty good. I like the default usability. Only finger print lock that doesnt work hardware wise.
But, after that im locked.
Especially when sudo mount -o remount, rw / doesnt work for me. (Even if I typed it wrong this time)
I can't do things that I seen in tutorials. Not necessarily waydroid, but terminal stuff.
@Rinkeby to be fair anything that requires you to remount the system read/write is not officially supported anyhow. So it should not be surprising if it fails.
In addition, Volla's dual boot system is also not supported by the UBports community. If you are having trouble, it might be a good idea to check on the Volla forums for help with what you are trying to do.
Well one of the links here showed how to install waydroid at least. By linking folders and stuff. It worked. And it runns pretty smooth.
So one down.
@Rinkeby Waydroid is working fine for me on the 23X. I followed a guide somewere on this forum.
On thing to remmber is after using waydroid helper to launch waydroid the screen resets to the wallper and hidden menu bar with waydroid not visible. Then open a terminl and enter
Anbox is obsolete as far as i know. Waydroid replaced it..
Look for the guide that mentions the show-full-ui command
I got waydroid installed. And it works smooth. But, it freezes after a while. Momory hole I guess. YouTube is no great in browser. And as you pointed out. Annoying way to boot it.
Its all instable for me. But I wait for the next update. And keep using lovely Volla in the meantime. It's better than stock android.
But can't wait for a stable UT!
