Hi, not to hijack this thread, but I am also trying to install newest UBports to E4.5. I am not expert in any level, so I read the forums and info pages. I have OTA-15 in my phone right now.
I have to use mac because my Ubuntu is only 32-bit. Old old old.
I have Developer Mode on and your newest installer installed to mac. Installer detect my E4.5 and I can choose 15.04 and 16.04 images. Installation starts, I put mac password in program and phone turns to FASTBOOT mode. After that nothing. It just hangs. I have waited an hour and nothing. With both 15.04 and 16.04 images.
After I restart the phone my OTA-15 is still there.
So, what should I do? Do I have to use the other way, like toddvarg did, or can I use installer in some way? As mentioned, I am totally newbie with phones, so step-by-step instruction is highly appreciated. Otherwise I will just continue to use OTA-15. No courage to play too much with it.
