Hi, I'd like to be more involved in UT development.
I'm a software developer, I already have a Nexus5 as my daily drive.
So having another phone to start developing core apps or system apps would be nice.

RE: PeerTube v2 released today
@3arn0wl In the link given by @libremax, there is a chapter about the new video player.
It's stated there that live streaming won't have been possible without a new video player.
Hence I understand that live streaming won't be possible until the new video player is widely spread and probably even later.
And I agree this would be nice to have live news from UBPorts using a free alternative to youtube
[Edit] AAfter posting I realize answer from @libremax has been made
@kugiigi 16GB for android is a very narrow storage.
System requires at least 5GB and apps take a huge lot, for few apps you can count 6GB for your data and alternative OS that's not enough.
Moving apps to SD card is not always possible on android and there's still data stored on the main internal storage.
But I agree multiboot would be a cool feature, but I guess for later "special edition".
RE: Nexus 5 wifi hotspot operation with password has issues.
@air409 I don't know if it can be related but I recently had a strange experience.
My father in law came visit us and asked for the wifi. After typing the passphrase several time without any success we started wondering what could happen...
Then after some time my GF figured out that she had notifications on her iPhone asking if she allows her father to connect the home network ???
This was the router wifi not shared connection with her phone.
So with proprietary things (and in this case apple) it a-pear (pun intended) that strange behavior can be observed...
Quick answer : the installer is a convenience for end users to facilitate flashing a device.
For "more advanced" users who wants to debug and help testing the method will be closer to development methods.
But in case of the PinePhone it will be quite easy first steps are the same as installing an OS for the raspberry pi ; flashing a SD card with
ddcommand. Then I guess there will be something like a bootloader allowing to boot from the SD card or to flash the device using the image on SD card.
RE: Google sheets
Google sheets is an online spreadsheet.
Ubuntu Touch provide an internet browser "Morph Browser", if @arubislander is correct (and I think he is) you are trying to access a speadsheet with Morph and it does'nt work the way you expect ?
I don't use google services so I never tried it.
What is the behaviour you experience ? Morph crashes ? There is a blank page ? You cannot modify the cells ?
In any cases Google spreadshit (oups) is developped to work with chrome, I'm not sure it's W3C compliant.
If I'm right on the latter it will be very difficult to fix that...
So my question is what do you want ?
To make it possible for UT to access google spreadsheet ?
To know if there are alternatives like FramaCalc ?
If there is an app to adapt the UI so this kind of online app can be usable on a phone ?
What is your use case : work, personnal, ...
You need to be more specific if you want help.
If you have trouble with English there are Telegram/Matrix groups for many languages. I don't have the link right now but I can find it later.
RE: Pinephone tutorial
@marklynch Updates are done OTA (Over The Air).
Which means you can download the update on your device and it's installer with a simple reboot.
Note that the UT version being ported to the PinePhone is the DEV channel I hope that in december it would have reached the stable channel.
So hopefully for Brave Heart edition you can expect a stable release of UT.
