sure we did had some fights and overall he did help me too... just because I had exams and did not had time to work on it that does not means I should not any credits for creating the first version of the port... it is very low that I get seen as nothing when I spent sleepless nights trying to figure out and running around for help..

But the community needs the help of all devs. Why dont you work together. Or may be individual builds.

I'm not going to comment on this anymore here. I don't wanna start a fight or whatever about something not worth fighting about.

it would nice if I can get some credits too..

Did he use your source? If he did then he should give you some credits for it. I think it's a XDA rule regarding using other peoples work. I did see his comments on your thread but not sure if he actually used your source from github or built from the scratch.
Anyways I hope you two can work together on this project and give us users the ultimate Ubuntu Touch experience. Thanks for all your hard work

    Hello to all of you,

    I have some very sad news especially for Xperia Z1 and ZU users..

    But first I wanna give a lot of thanks to all of you for the great support and confidence in me throughout my development times here on XDA, I've met some wonderful people and learned a lot. I know people respect me and it's given me a great feeling of satisfaction.

    I have some really difficult issues/situation to deal with in real life now, I can't keep running away from it. I'm sorry to announce to the entire community I'll stop development right now.

    I don't know if and when I'll come back. I hope I can come back, but it all depends on my personal situation. Please don't sent me a lot of pm's about the issues. Thank you.

    Regards to all of you,
