This is not my work I only compiled it

IMPORTANT: THIS BUILD IS OUTDATED Developer of this rom officially released it: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/368...dmi-4x-santoni

Instalation
Just flash zip file in TWRP
You don't have to wipe anything
Note: installation won't format /data , /system , /vendor partition. So you won't lose data but make backup anyway.

What's not working
  • Bluetooth
  • Screen rotation
  • Sound
  • USB MTP
  • Probably USB HDMI desktop mode (not tested)
  • etc
Password and username
Default username is: phablet
Default password is: toor
(password can be chanched with sudo passwd phablet command)

Dual boot (this is not officially supported method, I found it myself)
(Sometimes this doesn't work reinstalling Android should fix it)
Make a backup of boot partition in recovery before installing Ubuntu Touch
Then flash Ubuntu Touch zip file
To boot Android restore boot partition backup from recovery
To get back to Ubuntu Touch flash boot.img as boot partition (scroll down for download)


APT-GET fix
To get apt package manager working you need to make root of Ubuntu Touch writable
Type these commands to terminal:
sudo mount -o remount,rw /
sudo touch /userdata/.writable_image


SSH
To SSH into Ubuntu Touch connect phone to PC.
IP of the device is 10.15.19.82
Type ssh [email protected] in terminal default password is toor

Sound and Bluetooth fix
Follow APT-GET instructions upper in this post.
Open terminal app and type sudo apt upgrade

Hi

what are your first impressions with UB Ports ?
Even if it's not stable for moment...

Well, stuck on boot logo...
Flashed above Miui 10 stable.

edit 2 working for me, only after full wipe and clean flash.
Looks nice, I didn't try a lot of time, but I like interface. I'll wait anbox working good to flash rom again.

edit 3 : dual boot works with lineage OS ! Great !
Do you plan to update compilations ?

Install the ROM you want… The one you were using before replacing it with this one, I presume.
