  1. I am not sure if it already had come to notice here in this forum: There is a funding campaign to have a professionally skilled developer working on Anbox container for Ubuntu Touch: https://gofund.me/acb31504 I think it is worth to be supported. Anbox is kind of a container running an android environment so that native android apps could be run. Of course this could be more convenient than dual boot 😉 Cheers, Ulle
  2. YES!!! See attached video file (sorry for the ridiculous video quality ... had to shrink 2min to 2MB ...) I now have Ubuntu Touch via "Slot A" and LineageOS 18.1 via "Slot B". Dual boot procedure takes to get used to: It's not choosing OS during boot, instead it works from fully booted OS and then "OK, reboot into the other OS". The app used for that is "Switch My Slot" , with existing versions for UBports (Ubuntu Touch), Android and Sailfish. Feels like ages ago having such a satisfying moment like seeing this on my Pro1 \o/ Cheers, order#10248 Edit: Video is
  3. There seems to be some TWRP ... see https://community.fxtec.com/topic/3005-ubuntu-touch-os-for-fxtec-pro1/ ... Preparation: TWRP for Pro1: Download here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1IgUjxEKV5MU_3cRkNCyGc-YpRkUQ3xHh (Credit to Mccreary) ... Thanks for for the steps/listing! I was on LineageOS 16 (Android9) and had to activate USB debugging via --> Settings --> About Phone (scroll down to last option) --> Build number (scroll down to last option) and tap on "Build number" multiple times --> until notifcation for "developer options are enabled" -->
  4. After almost half year there is some glimps of hope: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/dualboot-android-boot-manager.4195929/ Will my dream come true to have Ubuntu Touch on my Pro1 AND being able to boot into LineageOS for apps that dont exist for Linux , like bike and car sharing etc? Lets keep fingers crossed!
  5. Today I took the time to flash Lineage OS , following the instructions at https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/pro1/install . My Pro1 has physical qwertz keyboard layout and I prefer German as system language. So i did the following steps (sorry for writing german setting names here): "Einstellungen" --> "System" --> "Sprachen & Eingabe" --> "Physische Tastatur" -> "Builtin Keyboard" -> "Tastaturlayout wählen" + "einrichten": Checked Deutsch (Android Tastatur). Still no change: Most keys seem to be "shifted" , i.e. pressing "f" then a "d" is printed . Af
  6. Don't know how to put this into a code-box ... [email protected]:~$ uname -a && lsb_release -a && cat /etc/os-release Linux ubuntu-phablet 4.4.153-perf+ #4 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jun 10 00:15:28 CEST 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux No LSB modules are available.

  7. Thank you _DW_ for sharing these issues. TheKit, how much effort would that mean? Anyway, as you seem to be the one behind ubports-fxtec-pro1-v0.5.zip : Any plans to improve it newer versions?
  8. Well key "u" results into "z" , not "y" .
  9. Thank you both for excellent comments! My first try will be Ubuntu Touch OS as sngle boot OS ... Cheers, #10248
  10. Last week Liangchen Chen posted a video of a Fxtec Pro1 running Ubuntu Touch on Twitter https://twitter.com/chenliangchen/status/1272903474393604100 containing a link to an installable zip-file. I managed to install it and wanted to share the procedure, which is pretty equal to installing Sailfish OS: https://community.fxtec.com/topic/2467-community-build32120updated-jan-20-sailfish-os-for-fxtec-pro1/ . Text below is mostly copypaste from over there ... Most important info first: Installation process requires that you wipe your current OS and user data! Download Ubuntu Touch
  11. The Pro1 is announced with an unlocked or unlockable bootloader. And since I ordered my Pro1 ages ago I had the idea to have one Android system for some apps important to me AND one system which I could use for geek stuff, preferrably something like N900 Maemo . I am pretty new to current Android versions and how it handles "disk" space. I read something like "slot a" and "slot b" . Any chance to have two (or more) operating systems which could be choosen during boot process? Cheers, #10248
  12. Hello, I would like to ask if other pro1 (qwertz) users have the same uneven backlight behind their keyboards. See attached picture *. Some keys are hardly to be recognized, i.e. L, . (dot) , P , Ü , ß . Should this be considered as a hardware issue? Does anyone know how to push backlight to more brightness? And is it known today by someone how to keep backlight on as long as keyboard is slided out? Cheers, #10248 * Picture is changed a bit to some thresholds for brightness and contrast to emphasize the issue.
