The fantastic people from NerdZoom (a German Tech Blog, audiocast, and youtube channel specializing in GNU/Linux) were present and recorded a nice video of the talk especially for you.

Attention UBports Community! We Would Like Your Help
UBports News Channel, [19.09.18 15:50]
Attention UBports Community!
As UBports quickly grows, we need to know the clear answer to the question "Who is our audience?" so that we can develop our community and Ubuntu Touch correctly. Thankfully Querida, a member of UBports Marketing, has decided to do her International Business and Languages Bachelor thesis on this very topic for her graduation semester. So with your help we can all benefit from her hard work!
We ask you to kindly take about 5 minutes of your time to fill out this survey.
To thank you for your participation, we'll be sure to publish the detailed results of this survey on the forum so you, too, can know more about your UBports Community.
Thank you for your help, and Querida thank you too!
Please note that from today any post in the Support section asking about New device ABC will be moved to Off Topic and locked. The Support section is for just that, support for issues with current devices and apps.
The list of current devices can be found here https://devices.ubuntu-touch.io/ and a list of potential devices here https://pad.ubports.com/p/r.fbf463250adef36ec3bc33a7f5f6be93
If you are interested in creating a port please read this https://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/porting/introduction.html and have a look at the Porting section of the forum https://forums.ubports.com/category/33/porting.
Thank you for your understanding.
Linphone App Now In OpenStore
UBports News Channel, [02.10.18 01:03]
Hey there, UBports! We just heard a little secret...
...Someone said that Linphone has just landed in the Open Store.
It's Ubuntu Touch's very first dedicated SIP app which allows VOIP calling - now!
In fact, you can even use it to make regular telephone calls, too!
You can create a free account -right in the app - and start calling other Ubuntu Touch users and anyone else who can use the famous Linphone software and services.
Join the party and keep up the good work!

App Maintainers Needed !!
UBports News Channel, [04.07.18 13:47]
Are you a Dev?
UBports is Looking for App Maintainers
UBports has been looking for App Maintainers for the music-app and weather-app for some time now, but no one has yet stepped up. These two apps are, while not highly discussed, still important core apps and have been in unmaintained status for over a year.
If you are a developer with some skills in QML/Qt and interested in helping out with this specific need, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions. Or, simply fork the code and start sendings us PRs!
RE: Ubuntu on Huawei devices?
I refer once again to what has already been stated by Florian
[Forwarded from Florian Leeber]
I am fully against any cooperation with Huawei sorry to say. As I said yesterday in the supergroup: No we wont ask for this. Huawei is in a very political discussion and the foundation needs to stay neutral. We will not endorse, recommend any or cooperate with companies that are under the impression of political influence.
I think that really puts an end to this thread so am going to lock it. There is always Off Topic if needed.

Download the rootfs image from https://ci.ubports.com/job/rootfs/job/rootfs-pinephone/
1 Extract and write the image to an SD card
2 Plug SD card into phone
3 Boot phone
That should do it.
Copied from @Universalsuperbox post in the other thread, how to get OS on to PinePhone
RE: Ubuntu Touch is working poorly for me on my FP2
@ollehell Firstly thank you for changing the title of your post and secondly I hope we can help improve your experience so far with Ubuntu Touch. I'm sure someone in the community will be able to help with any individual issues.
Please remember Ubuntu Touch is not nor does it want to be Android or IOS. The OS is developing and moving forward all the time. We know there are few issues that need work and they are and will be worked out.
We are a helpful and friendly bunch and very proud of UBports and Ubuntu Touch, so join in and if you do have the time and can help out in anyway it will be very much appreciated.
