according to the podcast linux headlines episode for 2019 Nov 5 (jupiter broad casting) (minute 1:20) ubports is starting to build 64 bit images for ARM hardware and has released images for sony xperia x and oneplus 3t but the instal process for these is more complicated than usual. thank you ubports! this is so cool.

support for sony xperia x and oneplus 3t
RE: noobie OnePlus WiFi issue
my first thought was to sell the phone and get one that doesn't have "world" in the model. but i really should read the "supported models" again. i ordered a nexus 5X and realized that it isn't supported, so, i'll just check if works and then put it back on ebay and get just a nexus 5. am amazed that you got it working as well as you did. check out the t-mobile starter kit SIM with free data every month for under $6 and free shipping on amazon. i was in the mall and asked at the t-mobile store and they had no idea that this SIM existed. i have it but i don't know which phone to put it in
RE: No sim card detected on Nexus 5
noobie here, i am just learning about phones, etc i am wondering if it might be a hardware problem? i don't know if it is worth trying a product called deoxit (de-oxidize-it on the SIM contacts. it's used on electronics to improve electrical continuity without harming anything, don't use WD40 or any other non specific product unless you know that it is ok to do so) i am not sure of the spelling. it used to be a low cost spray from radio shack. i think there are knock-offs now, some very small liquid (not spray) sample size. you might try fry's or an automotive parts shop or amazon
noobie OnePlus WiFi issue
i just got my OnePlus One working, sort of. no SIM card yet. I just got my phone 2 days ago. i couldn't get the graphical installer to work, so i tried the command line in my mac. i have never used it without close supervision. before i got UT, i configured the WiFi in Android. in UT it doesn't see any networks and i see no way to enter info. any suggestions? the command line seems like magic, but all i know about it is copy, paste, hit enter. i feel i am living on the edge, like driving without a license. I wouldn't know exactly what that feels like, i can only imagine, or use the terminal. using it in the phone is less of a risk, but it sounds like SSH is the way to go. i am thinking that if i rerun the command lines maybe my WiFi will work? are the lines i copied out of the UBPorts installer temporary? do they delete themselves after a while? i still see them sitting there
also i don't have the ability to navigate in what i think is the boot loader. the place you go when dpressing the power and volume down button at the same time
i set the clock in one place, in the set up process, it still shows a different time and date most other places in the phone, 3:38 Jan 3 1970, as i recall
what file system does the installer or phone use?
what programming language is (are?) used to make the OS?
thanks to Canonical for making it, i wish they didn't drop it, thanks to the maintainers and developers and UBPorts that maintain and develop it, thank you. i am very excited to working with it at the moment
edit: i was reading some of the other posts. "Wifi not connectiong after reboot" has a few things to look at
