RE: Telegram issues today
please send a bug report here: https://github.com/ubports/telegram-app/issues
I had another problem with the Telegram update the day before yesterday and Flohack was so kind to help me out (https://github.com/ubports/telegram-app/issues/151)
RE: Universal Easy Installer
@rossrosh: Like Flohack said, the UBPorts installer exists and works great, see here: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/976/ubports-installer-excellent-user-experience
RE: offline navigation for ubports
OSMScout used to be a quite usable offline maps and routing app. It has migrated to OpenStore: https://open.uappexplorer.com/app/osmscout.fransschreuder
The issue is that I cannot download maps anymore. The links to the maps (inside the app) seem to be broken. Has anyone news or a solution for this?
RE: [HowTo][OPO]Fix MTP driver permissions
Thanks @Flohack, your HowTo worked perfectly.
Step 1 did not work on my OPO, so I had to put it manually into recovery mode (Powerbutton + volume down for a few seconds (while it is switched of)). Then steps 2 - 12 went smoothly. Thanks for the HowTo!!!
@rocky58: If adb reports "device offline", then it sometimes helps to simply wait for a few seconds or to unplug and plug in again the USB cable. This worked for me.
UBPorts Installer - Excellent user experience
Usually, forums are used to discuss solutions for issues and problems. I would like to use the forum to give positive feed back.
Yesterday, I used the new UBPorts Installer to install Ubuntu Touch on a used OnePlus One smartphone that was running on Android. The user experience of UBPorts installer was excellent !!!
The installation process took only about 15 minutes and required minimum user interaction and there was no need to look at any documentation. The developers have also thought of nice details such as a brief visual guide how to set a OnePlus One device to fastboot mode. Installation was absolutely smooth.
[Following is solved now, see comment by rocky58: Only after the installation was complete, I run into a few problems, but this had nothing to do with the UBPorts installer: My OnePlus One was not recognized as MTP device, so I couldn't easily copy my old contacts and SMS over to the new device (https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/13).]
I think the missing piece is the Desktop Apps scope, which was released yesterday on OpenStore: https://open.uappexplorer.com/app/libertine-scope.ubuntu
