Android Apps

anbox is now added to the flashable zip. but it is not perfect and a lot of apps i tested had compatibility issues . it should only be used if you really need to run android apps. it is disabled by default
  • enable anbox by typing the folloing line in terminal
sudo anbox-tool enable

  • installing apps in terminal
check if anbox is online adb devices
go to Downloads cd Downloads
install the apk you downloaded adb install name_of.apk


Multi booting

This build will not overwrite your system image so you can multiboot both ubuntu touch and any other rom.To do this backup both the boot images and flash them as needed.

Wifi isn't working on my device.
Is there any thing i can do?

i did add a script for this but it does not seem to work.
could you connect the device to a Linux pc and run the following in pc 's terminal


ssh [email protected]

sudo -i

cp /system/etc/wifi/WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini /data/misc/wifi/WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini

sudo echo 1 > /dev/wcnss_wlan

sudo echo sta > /sys/module/wlan/parameters/fwpath

Worked like a charm!
Also it was good to know I could ssh using that address.

    I would love to try it! Don't worry about it being usable; my kenzo is no longer my primary phone.
    download https://gitlab.com/JBBgameich/halium-install/ and unzip

    download the following 4 files (including flash.sh)and move to the above folder


    now to install use flash.sh script ./flash.sh


    NOTE : ui freezes after initial setup (issue is related to user data) ..let me know if u find a fix for this

    What I meant was that I successfully sshed into my phone, and executed the commands you told me to execute - it still gets stuck on boot animation.
    it will take around 15 to 20 min for the first boot ..due to the issue I mentioned earlier...
