@C0n57an71n That's a shame. I like my Nexus 5.
BTW. It has just come back to life, 2 days after being dropped down the toilet! (Not recommended!)
@advocatux Thanks. At first I had no success. I restarted the udev service
sudo service udev restart
then checked that the cdc_acm kernel had not been removed
lsmod | grep cdc_acm
started the flash tool again
but got the same errors as before.
Then I used a different USB port, and the flash_tool started downloading to the bq M10.
I now have Ubuntu 15.04 OTA13 running. Maybe I'll stick at this level of success for a while, before I risk messing up the M10 yet again.
@Lakotaubp Now I do have a battery problem. I let it run down and now it wont charge, whatever charger I use. I think that that is the end of the road for my OPO - shame. However, that is typical for LiPo batteries. They should never be allowed to completely disharge, or so I understand.
@Lakotaubp Thanks. Will do, but it will have to be tomorrow now. I'm not aware of any battery problems. Thanks for your help.
@Lakotaubp I have the same problem with Debian 9 (4.19.97-v7l+) but I'll try your suggestion.
Using power and volume down together for recovery, all I get is this screen, with which I seem to be able to do nothing.
power and volume up together give me a screen that says "Fastboot Mode"
@Lakotaubp Thanks. i'm using elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki
ADB is not seeing my device, unfortunately, whether I have it in fastboot mode or in its boot screen mode. I've tried different ports and usb leads to no avail. WIN 10 seems to see it though ??
@Lakotaubp Thanks. I'll try that, if I can get passed the initial boot screen.
@dtarrant I bought an M10 Android and have run UBports for a considerable time now, but it was a real pain to install. You have to follow the instructions extremely carefully. I found bits of the install would only work on Win10 (Probably from memory - installing Ubuntu) and bits on Linux, but I got there eventually. It is a very nice tablet, if a bit limited.
(not used with an external display though, as yet)
@karlitozebc Sadly, I have the same problem on a OnePlusOne. With both Linux and Win 10, I can get to the reboot phase, but no further. I just get the opening:
powered by Ubuntu
supported by ubports
I've tried over and over again, but I think my 'phone must be bricked. A shame because my Nexus 5 had been running for a couple of years on UB before dying.
However, whereas using bq's Ubuntu 15.04 OTA5(?) allowed me to at least browse the internet, but little else, I now have the original problem back. The bq appears to connect to the WiFi but I cannot get a network connection, so no updates, no browser etc.
I've tried 2 different WiFis and have performed a reset. (Settings Reset Erase and Reset all.) This has made no difference as neither WiFi will work. Although it says it has connected to my Bluetooth keyboard, it has not given a code to type and the keyboard isn't working with the bq10. It seems that the wifi and bluetooth issues are connected.
Is there a WiFi/bluetooth I/O problem with the OTA 8 & 9 and the bq M10 HD? Is there anything else I can try?
Edit. Reading wifi bqm10 it seems that this is an old, but unsolved, issue. However, I don't understand why wifi worked well for months then suddenly stopped. Only installing bq's original Ubuntu did I get it back, but that is such a limited OS.
Edit 2: I can connect through a third modem, a mobile MiFi, so I'm up and running. Thanks for all your help.
