On N5 I recognized: Installing System updates seem to cause the reinstallation of the native kernel. This causes a disfunctionallity of anbox and heating of your device (100% CPU). I recommend to disable automatic System updates.

Community support for LoquiIM (WhatsApp)
Dear UBports team!
As you may know there is a messenger app in the Store called LoquiIM. It's an HTML5 app and was created by FirefoxOS app developers years ago to provide a all around messenger app including WhatsApp. This app is the only full GUI app to make the use of WhatsApp possible on FirefoxOS and Ubuntu Touch. To keep this up, the Loqui team needs your help. It would be a pitty, if this long project died out. We're looking forward to switch over to an Android based client. That is in the far future. Currently we emulate an S40, whose support of WhatsApp has been extended until end of 2018 some weeks ago. But this is not a surviving solution. So if someone has some experience with the WhatsApp technologies and wants to help refreshing this app, also into GUI functionallity direction, feel free to contribute on the project's Github page. Join our Telegram group.
Thanks in advice and keep up your great work here!
Enhancement: Support for SuruDark theme
This thread will be about an OS enhancement to fit the UI and (core) apps for the Theme palette's SuruDark theme. I tested it some time ago and I really like the 'inverted version' of the default Ambiance theme. But most of the apps, such as Filemanager or the webbrowser have static color definitions so e.g. you can't read some fonts. We could get rid of it by changing these static colors to the current Theme palette's colors for the core apps. Do you think this is a good idea? If yes we could create new braches for the core apps where we could change this. In my opinion this would make UT more attractive due to its customizability.
RE: Need for better permission policy for HTML5 app
Cordova works worse with files from my point of experience. It's also a pitty, if you'd need such a rewrite of the html5 app. So there's a need to procreed oxide-qt or an implentation of a routine which makes a barrierfree handle with files possible.
RE: Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!
My name is Bjarne alias nfsprodriver. Before UT came onto the market with the bq e4.5 I was fascinated in this OS. Since the e4.5 I use and love UbuntuTouch. Because of the knowledge of FirefoxOS running WhatsApp via the webapp LoquiIm, I started the work to port it to UbuntuTouch and got some great help and supporters - partly from here ;-). Anyway, now I'm on Nexus 5 with UT and test it and some different cool projects. I hope I can give a part of work into this great community!
