Not dual booting at all, I flashed ubuntu over the baseband of cm12.1. I thought that was what the advice was!

RE: Nexus 5 ota 11
Ok, I flashed twrp recovery then cm12.1, then reflashed ubuntu rc-proposed (which didn't go super smoothly, I had to wipe the system in twrp first, otherwise --bootstrap failed) but no change. The Browser just hangs on the spinny loader anim, music same, gps doean't work, bluetooth doesn't work. All pretty much the same as ota-11, just with things hanging instead of crashing.
Do we need to donate a a nexus 5 to @mariogrip? I have acquired another one with a broken screen here, which I can fix and send if it's going to be useful?
RE: Nexus 5 - Suggestions/Bugs
Not sure where this should go, I have made some comments on the launchpad bugs pages.
Basically I think loads of the trouble I'm having with apps not starting, crashing or hanging after the initial loading screen is related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubports-android/+bug/1625832, would make sense if the web apps use Browser as a base?
Not sure why uNav would hang but maybe what is crashing the Browser app is also causing calls to web services in other apps to silently fail?
Telegram 100% works, so not a connectivity issue.
RE: Trust, Accountability and Transparency.
@jayywolff what channel are you on with the nexus 5 now? I can't get it into a state where it's usable as a daily driver? Can't see any change with the last 9 releases 224->233 either, or updates to the lauchpad bug list.
I really want this project to work and would contribute a small monthly amount if I knew things would improve to a state as to be comparable with the current OTA-13 on the official devices.
RE: Bounties and Bountysource ?
@apple.muncy have you tried it on another device?
I have been on it on my nexus 4 for a year, and now with ota-13, it's a great thing, ready for day to day use no worries at all.
I came to the nexus 5 because I got one cheap with broken glass and repaired it because my nexus 4 has digitizer problems. The experience on the 5 is just broken in comparison to the Nexus 4, this will undoubtedly improve (hopefully!!). It's annoying as it's so much smoother running on the 5, looks way better too and has widi/miracast support I think?
So I think I will be getting a new screen for my nexus 4 and updating the 5 regularly until the ubports version gets to be where the nexus 4 is now.
I will support the effort financially in a small way if the bounties etc are goal oriented to that end.
