Here is the latest iteration of kuailexs's Ubuntu Touch 16.04 build, alpha V0.1.4. I've uploaded it to Googledrive for your convenience... (this is not my work)

Click Here To Download


Github

UBPorts Website

Supposedly the following is working:

Boot - OK
Bluetooth - OK
Camera
Cellular Radio-OK
GPS
Graphics - OK
Resume - OK
Rotation - OK
Sound - OK
Touch - OK
Wifi - OK
anbox-kernel-OK

Here is a brief news article in Chinese relating to the V0.1.3 build, with mention of Anbox support, including brief instructions.

Original article: https://hacpai.com/article/1543854794147
Translated article: https://translate.google.co.uk/trans...F1543854794147

Lastly, the build was obtained from here: https://pan.baidu.com/s/1dEZDZbj#lis...u-touch-cancro for future reference.


Installation instructions:

< IMPORTANT INFO > MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH FREE SPACE IN INTERNAL STORAGE OTHERWISE YOU WILL GET STUCK AT THE SPLASH SCREEN < IMPORTANT INFO >

1) Boot to TWRP
2) Wipe data, system, cache & dalvik cache
3) Install provided rom package "ubuntu-touch-16.04-cancro-Alpha-0.1.4.zip"

The default lockscreen passphrase is: 0000 which is set automatically with no prompt for the user to change/set on device setup wizard.

The passphrase can be removed or changed from within the settings though...

Also please note, this rom package replaces your installed recovery with a UBPorts based recovery.


When returning to android, I recommend replacing the UBPorts recovery with TWRP via fastboot.

1) Volume Down + Power Btn
2) Fastboot flash recovery /location/of/your/recovery_image.img
3) Fastboot reboot
4) Enter Recovery with Volume Up + Power Btn
5) Wipe data, system, cache & dalvik cache
6) Install your ROM zip.


Have fun.

App store working correctly. Applications are updated without problems.
But. About Ubuntu Touch updater found 390MB, but it unable to download beacuse on incorrect protocoll...it ttried to download from http:// path but the correct is https:// path.
I can download update file from correct protocol/path...I have no idea what can I do with the downloaded "ubports-8fe6a3624913e47121f89aa9f4b5a7975b4897ca50691a4deb bdda409cd69083.tar.xz" update file...

In order to successfully update, you need to increase your cache partition. The default partition size is around 370mb and you need almost 500mb so resize your partition size to about 750mb. If you do not know how to resize your partition refer to the following link :

https://iwf1.com/how-to-re-partition...-fs-type-etc/2
or
https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...basic-t3586565

use parted program from adb shell in twrp recovery.

This is great! I installed this a some time ago, to give ubports a try. Other than it feeling a little slow at times its pretty cool to have full Linux on my MI3

Anyone figured out how to speed some things up? Or is it really the age of the device showing up here?
