Nexus 5X Development
I'm just wondering how the development for the Nexus 5X is going. I see on the UBports website that it's under development but I don't see anything saying how close it is to being usable. I would really prefer to get the 5X but if there's no installable/usable version, I'll just go with the Nexus 5.

I thought about the Nexus 5x too, but I don't know how the development status for this device is.

@UniSuperBox work on it. He has many problem, hope he resolve it as soon as possible
The Halium port is tracked here: https://github.com/Halium/projectmanagement/issues/17
@unisuperbox Thanks for the reply! Do you have any idea, however vague, of when it might be finished if at all?
As the great Florian Leeber once said, "Porting is a strange sadism"
For one, I don't think any ETA on any port to any device will ever hold true. So many things come up during development that it's just not going to stay around.
Right now, the problem that I'm having with the 5X is that it just won't run software correctly. I can only get a maximum of one SSH session connected, and that's only if I disable every service. If it boots normally, I can't even connect to SSH. I'm completely at a loss as to what could be happening.
Alright, thank you! I'd help but I don't know anything other than bash and I'm not even proficient with that yet, haha! Good luck and thank you again!
But, to see things from the bright side, Nexus 5X is booting already, you can see GUI and stuff and it seems to have WiFi and radio? According to a glimpse of screen I saw today ;)
So cross fingers for 5X :)
