Zahkc 45 Posted April 24, 2021 Share Posted April 24, 2021 (edited) Hey all, I've been using Ubuntu touch for about a week now and Ive started working on patching some of the issues with them. I thought some of these fixes would be appreciated by you and I also wanted a public forum to discuss problems and potential solutions for them. The main issues I have noticed with fresh install of Ubuntu touch my new pro 1 are as follows: GPS ❌ - Straight up not working. I may be able to patch driver support across from the lineage git but im too busy rn. Flashlight ❌ - I believe this one shouldn't be to hard to patch, just a matter of finding the right gpio pin to trigger. HDMI Black Screen ❌ - This one bugs me the most atm, it will work the first time it is plugged in but after that i only get a black screen. I brought this phone for the idea of a linux box in my pocket so not having this functionality is killing me. Keyboard Backlight ✔️ - I have resolved this one. Here is my python script and a installer so you can fix it yourself. It also auto-hides the on screen keyboard when it is pulled out. Just download, unzip and run InstallSliderDaemon.sh . Current script is as stable as it gets. Please download and let me know if you have any bugs. Cellular Internet ✔️ - I have "Patched" this one too. Download it here. It seems that the rmnet device interface is unable to determine its own DNS server so I made a simple script that sets the global dns to the OpenDNS name servers. Additionally the script also works as a way to change your dns server if you type fixLTE 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 or change the details in the script. Anbox ❌ - @order#10248 has linked this gofundme to get this patched. It is nearly at the halfway point and im going to donate a chunk in once i get enough of these bugs squished. Bluetooth ✔️ - Finally found the fix. Its stupid simple and took me way to long. Basically the android Bluetooth binding program is loading before unity and causing problems. The init conf calls it after LightDM which is called before unity. The stupidly simple fix to this is simply make the program wait 5 seconds before running which works with great success. Once again here is a install script to patch it. MTP Access ❌ - I only noticed this this like an hour ago but it's still handy to have. Lock Animations ❌ - IT TAKES LIKE 5 GOD DAMN SECONDS TO TURN OFF THE DISPLAY!!! If you are having any annoying issues feel free to drop them in the comments and I will add them to the OP. I am unsure where to find the source for the Pro 1's UBPort as I think it was done in-house at FXTec so if anyone has a link to an up-to-date git I would love to push some of these fixes into upstream.
