My question is do you know where is the downloaded file located so I can choose/use it for upgrade? Thanks.

Is it not in /cache?

Thanks, but how do I access /cache from TWRP? In CWM it will automagically load the update file and flash.
Or is there a way to copy it out using a file manager?
Thanks again.
Cheers.

Update: I managed to find the .zip file for update and did an update in Recovery, using Advanced - List ROMS - Flash ZIP and it failed.

Yeah, boot into MultiROMs TWRP:

If the ROM to have the update applied to is a secondary ROM, hit Advanced, MultiROM, then select List ROMs, pick the ROM, then Flash Zip, navigate to /cache, and find the OTA and flash it, wipe cache and dalvik, reboot.

If the ROM you want to update is the main ROM, then just go to Install and navigate to /cache, and find the OTA and flash it, wipe cache and dalvik, reboot.

If you want to move the file for any reason to somewhere else, hit Advanced, then File Manager, you should be at root, and should see cache folder, you can then go in there and move it to where you want.

Post a screenshot, but I'll bet it was some file that was changed in /system. Just flash the system.img from the stock ROM you're on now, then the update will take.

Can somebody with deb (the 4G variant) run this test app? It will show a couple of evironment constants - take a screenshot and upload it here/send it to me. I'm trying to find out which is the correct constant to scan for device name, to distinguish flo and deb, if there even is one.

For 4.3 I use aicp. Highly recommend it. Its based on aokp with additional features.

First testing builds of Ubuntu Touch for flo were released, read https://lists.launchpad.net/ubuntu-phone/msg06116.html.

They are compatible with MultiROM and can be flashed via TWRP when packed to ZIP Files
  1. Update to MultiROM v21a (http://d-h.st/bPS) or newer
  2. Go to recovery, Add ROM -> select Ubuntu Touch -> Next
  3. Two files - one is device specific, second is the Ubuntu Touch system:
  4. Continue installation and profit. Needs about 2GiB of free space, by the way.

It can't be installed via the MultiROM Manager app because it is not official build, therefore it is not using system-image OTA system on which the app relies.

The good news: it boots
The bad news: It's really unstable and hackish, but it's experimental so what else would you expect.

Graphically mostly. Many screens overlap each other and cause distortions, apps don't always respond as expected, basically the UI is a bit messed up. Pretty much unusable, but it's a nice taste of what's to come.
