I forgot to wipe, so I tried again, and now the installer works. Somehow the old installation on the phone (Canonical 15.04) stopped the installer.
Same deal with 0.25.
Issue 2: It popped up on the phone when I plugged in the first computer, but nothing happened when I plugged on the second. I tried with two different cables - no difference.
I'll try on a third computer when I get home..
I'm trying to install ubports using the latest installer on an E4.5 Krillin. I't already runs UT - just the original one.
For some reason, the installer is stuck at "Are you ready for Ubuntu Touch on your Bq E4.5? I can't select anything.
My computer is running Mint 18.3. I wanted to try on another computer, but for some reason, I can't get the phone to prompt my to accept the RSA-key.
Aaand one more update. Wifi works now - after reinstalling anbox (don't think it's related - probably the reboot). Still No SIM error which is really bad. Any way to go back to OTA6?
Update: I tried another SIM and that works. Somehow the SIM died just as I upgraded. It doesn't work in another phone either..
And for the record, I just reinstalled my own OPO (the other one is my sons), and lo and behold - both wifi and cell network are broken.
All I did was switch channels, and reinstall the anbox kernel. My sons OPO is using the normal kernel - anbox is not installed....
I have the same problem as mentioned here:
dmesg gives me request_firmware failed -2
Flohack suggested that the firmware might be missing, but how can I check that?
If it's missing, is there any way to install it without reinstalling an android rom?
Thanks in advance
I have both an OPO and a an MX4. I've been using the MX4 with 15.04 and it's been working with bluetooth and all.
For kicks, I tested the latest 16.04 dev on the OPO because of anbox. Pretty good, only problem is google play services, but that'll probably be solved.
Thing is though, that I use bluetooth a lot in my car, and the OPO doesn't work with bluetooth - at least not in my car. I thought - well I can just install 16.04 on the MX4, and with a couple of tricks, also make anbox run on that. That worked like a charm, but now bluetooth has stopped working on the MX4 too.
It behaves the same way as the OPO, so the problem is not something device/firmware specific.
Any tricks/tips or anything? I would hate to go back to 15.04 - especially now with 16.04 being better in many other ways....
Strangely enough, the other way around sorta works. The car can find the phone, and most things work. I can control the phone through the steering wheel, but sound doesn't work. It worked for a couple of seconds, then no sound. The bluetooth icon on the phone never changed to connected, even though it obviously was connected.
A little unrelated - my MX4 can power on after two days submerged in rice. There is still hope
Sigh - my MX4 just died because of rain, so I have to switch to my OPO.
Nice phone, but Bluetooth doesn't work, and I need that for my car, as I spend a lot of time in my car.
Any news on progress of Bluetooth or do I have to bite the Linage apple? Any other UBports-compatible phone where Bluetooth works?
@libremax Ok - thanks for clarifying that. I look forward to 16.04.
@Lakota - The Sim works in non-UBP/UT-phones. I also tried switching on/off aeroplane mode. Strangely enough, I can now recieve MMS's, but they're always from "Unknown number", which is a pita. This indicates that the problem is provider specific.
I'm sorry if my original post was too salty - it wasn't meant that way. I'm staying on UBP because I like it, but the way things are done (the show) tends to put focus on new functionality, rather than fixing bugs. Unfortunately I don't know how to code, so I just donate.
As for choosing one phone, I'd propose the OPO. Make that work flawlessly (or close). It's pretty capable, available and not too pricey.
I look forward to running on a OP3 or 5, but I'm afraid my MX4 won't last long.
Who can help me with SMS/MMS? I'll be happy to supply logs etc..
I've been a UT and UBP user since the E4.5 came out. I really like the gesture based control and a lot of other things, and I like this project to succeed. I also have a dislike in google and apple, which kind of limits my options
I use my phone as a daily driver, and currently I'm using the MX4. I also have a OPO where I've tried the different UBP versions.
But now my MX4 is starting to act strangely. When I wan't to use the phone app, it often hangs at "Initializing". It also loses network connectivity, but this seems to be a baseband/firmware thing. Time to start using another phone.................
My options are:
Soso hardware, and annoying baseband issues. Working bluetooth is good (and a must, since I have a long commute, where I use the phone alot for calling)
Good hardware, working radio, but bluetooth not working. I've created bugs on this, but nothing happens. No BT means no go.
I have one with a broken screen next to me. Battery life seems unacceptable, but maybe a new(er) one could help? Does it work with BT - anyone?
Too small, and BT is also flaky.
Same BT as E4.5?, but better size.
I can understand why the developers want to try all the new and fancy stuff, like libertine, anbox and so on. Since it's the developers that run the show, this seems to set the agenda.
You've probably heard this before, but how about choosing just one phone, and make sure that all (or most) of the kinks are sorted? Use some of the donated money to buy one for each of the key developers.
I still have problems using SMS and MMS is no go. I can live with that, but please fix bluetooth
