Nexus 5 ota 11
@tom: thx for the information.
Yesterday i flashed android on my phone. I will try to get a used meizu phone, which is officially supported by Ubuntu. I dont think this ports will ever work in a way that you can actually use your phone.
On reading some comments on g+ page and on web, it seems OTA 11 and also the recent rc builds are based on android 5.1.1 and not android 4.4.2. We may have to update/reflash the base android version (though I couldn’t find any positing which instructs on updating the software explicitly) for nexus 5. After updating to android 5.1.1, still I see the OTA 11 problems like broken web browser and incoming phone calls not working but overall behaviour is better than with android 4.4.2.
@sagar.pradhan Please post a link or two to those.
as far as i know the new base is cyanogenmod 5.1.1 and not aosp. maybe the right android base fixes some issues. anyway i´m back to android - need at least a phone where i can receive phone calls.
Interesting so when flashing using ubuntu-device-flash and touch, it doesn't update the kernel/base? What is intended for android base, cyanogenmod base? The radio and the kernel?
@apple-muncy : Here are the links:
I went by the statement "This build is based on the ubp-5.1 branch (android 5.1/cm12.1)" and tried Android5.1.
But I think I should have tried cm12.1: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/15/what-is-ubp-5-1-1
I'm in the middle of loading my hammerhead with the devel_rc-proposed channel.
And I've been trying to figure out what ubp-5-1-1 is. Maybe his at home channel that he will release when it gets more stable.
I've been hanging out on chat.freenode.net #ubports (IRC)
Sometimes serious discussion there.
I might have to check out telegram.
@sagar.pradhan ok so is it just the baseband/radio to flash? what exactly should we update to 5.1.1?
@tom I guess you will have to install/flash complete ROM for cm12.1 on Nexus 5 and then reflash Ubuntu OTA12 or latest rc-proposed on it.
Ok, I flashed twrp recovery then cm12.1, then reflashed ubuntu rc-proposed (which didn't go super smoothly, I had to wipe the system in twrp first, otherwise --bootstrap failed) but no change. The Browser just hangs on the spinny loader anim, music same, gps doean't work, bluetooth doesn't work. All pretty much the same as ota-11, just with things hanging instead of crashing.
Do we need to donate a a nexus 5 to @mariogrip? I have acquired another one with a broken screen here, which I can fix and send if it's going to be useful?
Just my personal view, dual booting is just not worth the trouble.
Not dual booting at all, I flashed ubuntu over the baseband of cm12.1. I thought that was what the advice was!
" I flashed ubuntu over the baseband of cm12.1. I thought that was what the advice was! "
Yes, I think that was the advice.
My cheap advice about mixing systems -> " dual booting is just not worth the trouble."
