    Hello, I have decided to sell my Pro1. If anyone is interested in purchasing the phone please DM me. I am happy to discuss price. If no one here wants the phone I will have to put it on ebay which is not my preferred option. If you have a look on page 5 of this thread you will see I purchased this phone last year.

    @mibry I don't understand how to apply that fix. I can't edit those files from a terminal on the device, I can't ssh into Ubuntu Touch when it is running because no ssh service is running, I can't just copy files via USB because the device isn't recognized correctly and when I boot into recovery and connect via adb shell after mounting the filesystem, I can see all the files in /system_root but I can't execute vim.tiny to change anything.

    Oh and I can't set up a SSH server in Ubuntu Touch because I would have to copy my public key over aaand as I said I can't copy any files.

    You need the ubports tweak tool to put the file system into read write mode. Then you have to edit the file /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/libertine/ChrootContainer.py (best done with vi) and add "self.run_in_container('apt remove -y makedev') " to line 86 of the file.

    Before you do the following make sure all libertine containers are deletded.

    The way to do the edit is like this:

    • download the ut tweak tool
    • open the app and select system
    • change the file system to read/write this time only
    • open terminal
    • sudo -i
    • Then type vi +86 /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/libertine/ChrootContainer.py
    • The line should be blank, then indent the line to the above using space key
    • then push i (make sure you see insert on the lower left of the screen) and type self.run_in_container('apt remove -y makedev')
    • The push esc key. The type :wq! and push enter
    • Then ctrl d
    • Then run the command TMPDIR=/tmp libertine-container-manager create --type chroot -i id <-change (It will look like the libertine install fails during the install. Makedev fails 5 time, once that has happened libertine install should complete)

    Let the install finish and it should work.

    Please use the above as a guide. I am going by memory as I have sfos on my pro1. I take no responsibility if the above instruction don't work. They should be close enough that it should work.

    @mibry I can install a Ubuntu Xenial Xerus container, however I can't install any packages. During the installation the log spits out a bunch of

    mknod: fb0-: Permission denied
    makedev fb0 c29 0 root video 0660: failed

    messages and then ends with

    rm: cannot remove /dev/sde16: Permission denied

    and a general error that the installation process failed.

    Also see my previous post as I found two more issues.

    There is a fix available, the error is because make dev needs to be removed during install. I tested an install and got libertine installed.

    Surprisingly, this worked. Thank you!

    I first flashed the original image as described here ->

    And then I installed uboot-installer 0.54-beta by cloning the repository and checking out this branch here and then running

    npm install
    npm start 

    The first attempt failed as the Pro1 wouldn't boot into recovery mode, but after restarting the phone, exiting the installer, going back to the boot menu and restarting the installer it worked. It just took a long time before I got into the start menu.

    @Raksura pinging you here as you had a detailed list of what worked and what didn't.

    • GPS now works.
    • Flashlight works in the camera app and the application "uTorch" which I installed from the OpenStore
    • Keyboard backlight still doesn't work

    I did not test anything related to GSM/UMTS/HSDPA/LTE.

    My next step will be to see if I can get the german keyboard to properly work and not be shifted.

    Would you mind checking if libertine installs? When I tried to install it it failed with a roots error. I am running sailfish so really don’t want to install ubports and find libertine doesn’t work.

    I tried flashing stable at first and now edge, both with the same result of the phone not booting. If anyone has any experience with Ubuntu Touch and is able and willing to help, this is what I can see in the /cache/ubuntu_updater.log file after waiting for 10 minutes for the device to start and then rebooting it into recovery mode:

    Seems to me like the supplied image is bugged.

    Try and re-install the offical android image then installed ubtouch. I also found the the latest installer didn’t work correctly, I had success with the installer version 0.54 on windows.

    Hi there,

    I am selling my Pro1 with QWERTZ keyboard layout. Why am I selling it? Well, I figured that I like better keyboards like the one I used before & to which I will go back again - from a Blackberry Key One. I can simply use it better than the Pro1, which is why I scarcely used the keyboard of the Pro1 - way lesser than I did with the Key One... 😞

    I am feeling really sad selling it - because I want keyboard phones , and want to support any producer who is so brave, and I was starving for a bit more than a year when I got it in August 2020! However, it is now up for sale.

    The conditions is - as you can see - pretty decent. It was always used with a screen protector, put into a fit bag. The only sign of use is the shown scratch on the top border to the back, it is 2 or 3 mm wide and as thick as hair. If you to not search it, you will no see it.

    Regarding the price: I do not expect to get what I had paid for it (667€). And indeed I used it for some time. Make me a fair offer and we can talk!

    Contents: the box contains all original content (apparently the phone, charger with UK and DE plug + cable which were never used, two additional screen protection foils, the original FXTEC phone sleeve (also unused) and all that comes in the decent & like new orginal box. I will do a factory reset prior to shipping.

    I am not yet putting the phone up in Ebay, because I would prefer to sell to some here in the community who hates to wait! 😉



    @Montal8179I would be interested in purchasing the phone.
